Lyrics Of Annamacharya Keerthana - Nanati Brathuku Natakamu


Keerthana : Nanati Brathuku
Ragam : Revathi

pallavi
naanaati bratuku natakamu
kanaka kannadi kaivalyamu

Charanam1:
puttutayu nijamu povutayu nijamu
natta nadi mee pani natakamu
yetta neduta galadi prapanchamu
katta kadapatidi kaivalyamu

Charanam2:
kudiche dannamu koka chuttedidi
nadamantrapu pani natakamu
odi gattukonina ubhaya karmamulu
gadi datinapude kaivalyamu

Charanam3:
tegadhu paapamu teeradhu punyamu
nagi nagi kaalamu natakamu
yeguvale shree venkateshvaru delithe
gaganamu neekidi kaivalyamu

  2. nAnATi batuku nATakamu
    kAnaka kannati kaivalyamu

    This day to day (nAnATi) life (batuku) is a drama (nATakamu)
    What is seen yet not seen clearly (kAnaka kannadi exactly means something which is seen yet not seen; for instance an object at a far off distance) is liberation/salvation (kaivalyamu)

    caraNam 1

    puTTuTayu nijamu pOvuTayu nijamu
    naTTa naTimi pani nATakamu
    yeTTa neduTagaladI prapaNcamu
    kaTTagaTapaTiti kaivalyamu
    (naanaaTi)

    To be born (puTTuTayu) is truth (nijamu), to die (pOvuTayu literal meaning is to go; to leave) is truth. All the work (pani) in between these two (naTTanaDimi) is a drama. That which is right in front (yeTTa neduTagaladI) is the world (prapaNcamu). That which is the ultimate last (kaTTakaDapaTidi) is liberation.

    caraNam 2

    kuTicEdannamu Shoka cuTTeDidi
    NaTu mantrapu pani nATakamu
    voDigaTTu konina vubhayakarmulu
    gaTidATinapuDE kaivalyamu
    (naanaaTi)

    To partake/relish (kuDicEdi) rice/food (annamu), to wrap around (cuTTeDidi) a cloth/saree (kOka), this conjured-in-the-middle (naDamantrapu) work (pani) is a drama. When one crosses beyond (gaDidATinapuDE) the above mentioned dual duties (vubhayakarmulu) only then there is liberation.

    caraNam 3

    tekadu pApamu tIradu puNyamu
    naki naki kAlamu nATakamu
    yeguvane ShRI vEnkaTEShvaru Telika
    gakhanamu mItiti kaivalyamu
    (naanaaTi)

  6. takadu - does not get cut
    papamu - sin
    tiradu - no completion of ; not enough of
    punyamu - good deeds
    naki naki - is something to laugh about (in tamil : 'nagai' - to be laughed at)
    kalamu - time ; because of time; bound by time
    natakamu - drama
    yeguvane - the one who is a higher place; the only higher place
    Shri vengateshvaru - Lord Sri Venkateswara
    gaganamu - akasam; sky; the universe
    mididi - beyond the skies and the universe
    kaivalyamu - salvation/ liberation

    Meaning : Our sins don't dwindle. Our good deeds don't extend. In between these, we do something and that is the much laughable drama. Beyond these there is one and only one Lord Sri Venkateshwara. Beyond the universe He is there and that is where the liberation is
