Annamayya Keerthana – Vande Vaasudevam lyrics in English:
Vande vasudevam brndarakadhisha vandita padabjam ||
candanankita lasatcaru deham |
mandaramalika makuta samshobhitam
kandarpa janaka(m) aravinda nabham ||
Taka takita kaustubha tarana vaksasthalam
khagaraja vahanam kamala nayanam |
nigamadi sevitam nijarupa shesa
pannagaraja shayinam ghana nivasam ||
Karipura samraksane tatparam
kariraja varada samkata karabjam |
sarasiruhananam cakra viprajitam
tiru venkatacala devam bhajeham ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Vande Vaasudevam Meaning:
I bow to Vasudeva. The king of Brindaraka worships his lotus feet.
You shine like blue lotus. Your body is smeared with the sandal paste which is on your consort Indira. You are adorned with garland made of Mandara flowers(hibiscus) Your crown is glittering.You are Manmadha’s father. Your navel is lotus-like.
Your chest shines with koustubha jewel. Garuda the king of birds is your vehicle. You are lotus eyed. The scriptures adore you. You recline on the king of serpents and made it your great home.
You readily rescued Dharmaraja the king of Hasthinapura. You blessed the king of elephants with your lotus-like hands. Your face is beautiful like lotus. The discus is glittering on your hand. I worship the holy lord of Venkatachalam.
