  7. hey vijay,
    thanks for the lyrics.The english translation is a great effort. But nothing like being able to understand the original which thankfully I do.What really strikes me about the song is the expression that lies behind the line "kurai ondrum illai"...its like monalisa's smile. Check out amma herself singing it. This video never fails to bring tears into my eyes.

    1. This is an ardent devotee of Lord Venkatewara!My devotion cannot be expressed in words.I say Venkatesa suprabatham from June 13th 1969!!!!I also say other songs of the Lord.Another of my favourite one is "Govinda Namavali"I will not be able to say the feelings I go through when I recite this.But when my daughter (who again is another crazy devotee of the Lord)sent me this song sung by MS,I realised this was more emotional than anything in the world. I know it is quite late that I came to know the lyrics but as they say "better late than never".And can you believe when I first heard the song 15 days ago tears wouldn't stop and I could see myself non stop sobbing!From then on I never stopped singing (actually reciting) the song so many times and everytime tears flowing non stop!!!!!Such is the power of the lyrics,especially if you have experienced connectivity with Lord Venkatewara!!!!!!!BTW,I noticed I am replying to Skanda's mom,and I am Skanda's grandma!!!!!!

  22. Hi: I have tried to get the meaning from some of my tamil friends, they did not have a clue. They also behaved like it is nothing great and appeared disgusted to my dismay. But then I can understand, educated does not mean learned. Also, there is a prejudice against Mrs. Subbulakshmi, my favorite by the way, which makes some act strange.

    ALL I WANTED TO SAY WAS THANKS FOR TAKING TIME TO POST THE MEANING.

    I infact asked for it in a blogpost of mine :)

    If interested pl mail me on rush2raghu@gmail.com

    Thanks a lot for the meaning
    BTW marai moorthy or malay moorthy? my tamil friend thought malai moorthy meant god of hills (statue of hills/stone literally)...can you clarify please?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Marai moorthi < the God is not front of us but watching to us < Hidden God... he is in big pillar & small dust also.....

    Malai Moorthy < Venkatachalapathi, Thirupati < he is sitting over the hill...... with seven hills........ and famously with shortly Hill God... not stone....

  47. You are blessed to translate it, I am blessed to understand it.I am a malayalee , I thought the composer complains to Krishna that "I have no "kurai"(deficiency) as I have enough poverty,illness,enemity etc".My imagination further lead me to more expansions like"No,no,don't give me more troubles,I am having enough of them"!
    Thank you Sir, your precious translation prevented my wild guesses! Thanks a lot!

  52. Though originally I am tamilian but because born n brought up in Gujarat our Tamil was just limited to what we conversed at home. Do not understand bookish or poetic Tamil. I have these songs imprinted in memory as grown up listening to ms songs. Now married to mahatashtrian so no scope of learning the meaning. Was looking for the meanings of these songs so could listen with heartfelt feelings. Aah. Thank you so much. Am going to learn this song to sing and that will be a gift to my Amma. Thank you so much!!
    Thanks,
    Saroja.

  53. "Un maarbil Ethum thara nirkum karunai kadal Annai" - He is filled with the ocean of kindness...which is ready to give anything without asking ...not Mahalakshmi, i believe

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thank you for this. I have used yours and a few other translations online to come up with this

    Nothing is lacking, wise Krishna
    I have no problems, Govinda

    Unseen by the eye you are standing, Kanna
    But though I cannot see you,
    I do not feel your absence, knowledgeable Krishna

    You give me all I need Lord Venkatesha
    I want nothing more, Lord of the veda
    Manivanna (lord of gems), Malayappa (lord of the hills),
    Govinda (friend of cows), Govinda

    Behind the curtain you stand, Kanna
    Through the screen only the learned can see you
    Still I have no objection Kanna

    On top of a hill like a stone you stand, giver of boons
    No complaint have I dear lord of wisdom
    Manivanna , Malayappa, Govinda, Govinda

    For this Kaliyuga you have descended into a stone
    And stand as an idol in a temple, Kesava
    But I have no worries, wise Kanna

    Nobody can forget, Malayappa, within your chest
    To give anything is standing, an ocean of mercy, mother,
    Lasting forever, what more can I want

    No grievance have I, Marai Moorthy Kanna
    Manivanna , Malayappa, Govinda, Govinda
