Dhanatha thulakai thirigithanayya Thyagarajaptha ituvanti.

English translation

Pallavi

Being wicked, which rich man’s son can save me?

Anupallavi

I being attracted by very many evil things,
Every single moment

Charanam

1. Oh God who opens the lotus like heart of Lakshmi
Oh God who is beyond the sight of the mind

2. Oh God, I did not have sufficient brain to understand,
That you are in each and every being

3. Oh God, I lacking the nectar of singing your praise,
From very early age as I was argumentative for its sake

4. Oh God, I for the sake of money of others,
Flattered them so that I can melt their heart,
And wandered here and there, to fill my stomach.

5. Oh God, I who spent all my time in earth,
Thinking that only thing in life is pleasure

6. Oh God, I spent all my time by rejoicing in preaching to,
Attract dancers with evil mind, bad men and women,
Being hard hearted not to understand “Swara “and “Laya”,
And thought that I am an incomparable devotee.

7.Oh God of gods, I believed only in pretty women,
A great house, army of children and excess wealth,
And lost all peace of mind , by forgetting to ,
Sing the praises of your lotus like feet.

8.Without remembering well your lotus like face,
Always in my mind, I went behind people with evil thoughts,
And lived a life of hopelessness and being pathetically trapped,
I lamented as I was unable to give up evil thoughts and desires,
And lived a life of eternal criminal as a fickle minded person.

9.Not understanding that human birth is difficult to obtain,
And not striving for getting eternal joy, I became a slave,
To pride , jealousy , lust , avarice and passion and was ruined.

10.Oh God , I went on roaming behind,
Women , wealth , children and money,
Oh Thyagaraja which rich man’s son will save me.
