Annamayya Keerthana – Sakalam He Sakhi lyrics in English:
sakalam hesakhi janame tat
prakata vilasam paramam dadhase ||
alika mrga mada maya masi
kalanau jvalatahe sakhi janame |
lalitam tava pallavi tamanasi ni-
scalatara megha syamam dadhase ||
carukapola sthala karankita
vicaram he sakhi janame |
narayana mahinayaka sayanam
sriramanam tava citte dadhase ||
ghana kuca saila krascita vibhumani
jananam he sakhi janame |
kanaturasa venkata giripati
vinuta bhoga sukha vibhavam dadhase ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Sakalam He Sakhi Meaning:
Oh dear Alamelumanga, I know clearly about the magnificence of Lord Venkateswara. He is the bestower of Supreme bliss.
Oh friend, I know that your black tresses and the perfume of Kasturi on you is radiating happiness. Your lord in the hue of black cloud would comfort your delicate heart with perpetual happiness.
Oh my friend, I know about your deep feelings, when you are keeping your palms on your beautiful cheeks. Lord Narayana reclines magnificently on Adisesha with Adi Lakshmi. He is in your heart always.
A moon-like gem shines on the top of your breast. Oh my friend, I know well that Sri Venkatapati will surely bestow you happiness.
