Annamayya Keerthana – Nigama Nigamantha Varnitha Meaning:
Oh Narayana,the Vedas and the Vedic philosophy extole your fascinating form.You lifted the Govardhana mountain.
You are reluctant to bestow me with the happiness of renunciation. You are binding me in the worldly bonds. Oh Narayana, will my appeals ever reach you?
When I lost peace of mind due to disgust, You are confusing me with your leelas(sports). Are others entangled in various karmas comparable to me?
Instead of pulling me out of the entanglements, You are confusing me. Oh Sree Venkateswara,Oh Narayana the butter thief, You are adored by Indra the king of Devatas.
