Swara Raga Sudha Rasa
Swara Raga Sudha rasa yutha Bhakthi,

Oh mind is the heaven as well as salvation.

In the divine joy which is a lotus,
If stork and frog sit, what is the use , Oh mind

Mudha magu Mokshamuraa,
Kolahala saotha svara gruhamula,
Guruthe moksha muraa oh Manasaa.
1.Knowing the musical sound emerging,
From Mooladhara only grants joy leading to salvation,
And understanding the birth place of the sweet sounding ,
Seven notes is indeed salvation.

Sahaja bhakthi tho Raga Jnana ,
SAhithudu mukthuduraa, Oh Manasaa

Suddha manasu leka pooja seyuda,
Sookara vruthiraa , Oh Manasa
3.Without knowing the rhythm , if one beats,
The drum, is it pleasant to hear?
If one worships with out purity of mind,
It is the act of a pig, Oh mind.
4.Rajatha gireesudu naga jaku thelpu,
Vijyamu kala Thyagaraju deruge,
Viswa sidhi thelusuko , Oh Manasa.

By Lord Shiva to Goddess Parvathi,
Were understood by Thyagaraja who had several victories,
And Oh mind understand that this is a great achievement in this world.
