Vara raga layanjulu
Vara raga layanjulu thamanusu vadharerayaa
Thinking that they are experts in blesses Raga and Laya,
They keep on babbling about it
Swara jathi moorchana bhedhamul,
Though they are ignorant of the differences,
Between Swara, Jathi and Moorchana in their mind
THyagarajanutha yeseru Rama.
Without having any desire in understanding that
The musical notes emanating from our body are only,
Forms of the Pranava(Om) , the people torture,
Others and live Oh Rama, praised by Thyagaraja.
