Prahladha Bhakthi vijayam (contd)
Act 3. The fainting of Prahladha due to sorrow and a coming of Lord Hari
When there was no sign of coming of Lord Hari thinking that he does not have the luck to see the God Prahladha feels that his hands are useless since they could not worship the Lord and there is no use of his toungue which does not have luck to sing about Lord Hari in his presence . He faints due to extreme sorrow. Lord Hari appears before him , lifts him up and hugs him. Prahladha experiences the throes of divine joy.)
After hearing the description of Vaikuntam, Praladha became elated and looked at all the four directions , for any sign of the arrival of Lord Hari Prahladha feels that after hearing about lord Hari and his world from Narada , his sorrow had only increased ,He feels that his existence is useless without seeing Lord Hari personally and sings the following Krithi.
14.Ennaga manasuku raani
(Prahladha feels that eacjh of his organs which are not able to do service to the Lord are useless.)
Ennaga manasuku raani,
Pannaga Sayi sogassu ,
Pannuga ganugonani kannu lele,
Kannu lele gandi minnu lele.
The eyes which are not able see even after great thought ,
That great scene of lord Hari sleeping on a serpent,
Are indeed useless , what is the need of light in those eyes?
1.Mohamutho Neela vari-
Vahanakanthiki gerina ,
Sri Harini gattu konni dehamele,
Deha mele yi geha mele.
1.What is the need of that body,
That does not hug with passion
That Hari who has the luster of the blue cloud,
What is the need of this house also?
2.SArasija malle thulasee ,
Viravaji paarijatha ,
Virulache boojinchani karamulele,
KaramuleleYoi kaapuramu lele
2. What is the need those hands ,
Which do not worship Lord Hari,
Using lotus , jasmine , THulasi ,
Iruvakshi and Parijatha flowers?
What is the use of this residence ?
3.Malimitho Thyagaraju ,
Nelina Rama murthini ,
Lalinchi pogadani nalikele ,
Nalikele suthra malikele,
3.What is the use of this toungue that ,
Does not praise that Lord Rama who took care of
With love that Thygaraja,
What is the use of that Rosary.
Again Prahladha calls Lord Hari and tells him that his feet were only his refuge ., He also tells him that he had prostrated before him and sung about him and requests Lord Hari to come before him and the agitated Prahladha feels that his birth itself is absolutely useless and sings this Krithi.
15.Yeti janma midhi , Ha Oh Rama
(Prahladha feels sad about the birth he has taken and not able to achieve what he waqnted)
Yeti janma midhi , Ha Oh Rama
What type of birth I have taken, Oh Rama
Yeti janmamidhi yendhugu galige no,
Yenthani sairinthu , Ha oh Rama
What type of birth is this? Why did I got born?
How much can I tolerate Oh Rama
1.SAtileni mara koti lavanyuni ,
Mati matiki joochi mataladani thana
1.Without being able to see and again and again talk,
With that Lord who has incomparable beauty of one crore Cupids.
2.SAreku muthyala hara muramu palu-
Garu momunu gannulara joodani thana
2.Without being able to see with eyes his chest,
Where pearl necklaces move about and his face ,
From which milk appears to flow.
3.Ingitha meragina sangeetha loluni ,
Pongusu dhanivara gaugalinchani thana
3.Without being able to hug till my ebbing desire is satiated,
Of that great connoisseur of music who is greatly wise
4.Sagara sayanuni Thyagaraja nuthuni ,
Vegame joodaga vegeni hrudayamu
4.My heart is suffering due to my not being able to see ,
The Lord who sleeps on ocean of milk and one prayed by Thyagaraja.
When Lord Hari does not appear before him in spite of several entreaties , Prahladha feels greatly miserable and gets worried. His eyes get filled with tears . He wondered whether Lord Hari who saved the king of elephants was present there or not . Then he thinks that Lord that even Lord Indra and Lord Brahma could not see him and how is it possible for him to see the Lord. He faints with these thoughts. Lord Hari who is everywhere immediately realized the state of affairs of Prahladha and rushed to his side and lifted him up and then hugged him and placed him on his divine lap. Lord Hari looked like the Moon God who made the Kumuda flower like Mahalakshmi blossom. He had the luster of one crores of cupids. Prahladha who woke up and saw the Lord felt , how jhe would be able to describe the Lord and sings this Krithi.
16.Endhanusu varninthune yi
(Prahladha wonders how he will describe the God)
Endhanusu varninthune yi,
Yindhiraa ramananu nay
Saying what would I describe ,
The consort of Goddess Lakshmi
SAnthathamu namamu sajjanula yaa-
Santha dheerchu vasantha sukumaruni
That beautiful spring like God who fulfills all the desires,
Of the good people who believe in him.

Puramulu gallanaga Bhakthula gani ,

With the anklets making the sound “gal” and with,
Showering nectar of mercy on seeing the devotees ,
Making the heart of Yogis cool
2.Thilakamu chelgaga jalajakshu dilanu ga-,
Dhalu teevi vinipimpaka dumburu nara-
Dhulu gani nuthiyimbaga suralu suma-
Mul vana guri yimpaga venchesina
2.With thilaka shining on the forehead ,
With Dumburu and Narada looking at ,
The stylish walk of that lotus eyed one ,
And praising him and devas ,
Raining flowers on him.
3.Ghana neelamunu geru thanuvu pai bunugu cha-
Danamu parimalimbaka bagu yura-
Muna muktha manuladaga Thyagaraju ,
Ghani chelagiyya venchesina
3.With musk and sandal applied on his cloud like,
Blue body giving out good scent , With pearls,
And gems waving on his divine chest,
Him coming to give hand support to Thyagaraja
Then the Lord Hari spoke to Prahladha with great kindness and love , Hearing that Prahladha is thrown in to great rapture and sings this Krithi .
17. Enati nomu phalamo
(Prahladha is happy seeing that his requests are met.)
Enati nomu phalamo,
Ye dhana Phalamo
Result of which penance I did earlier,
Result of Which charity that I have given

3.Oh king of the pretty ones , who is surrounded by good people,
Son of Dasaratha , lotus eyed one oh pure one,
Oh Lord with pretty body who is worshipped by Thyagaraja ,

Prahladha then spoke to the Lord and forgot himself in the highest form of devotion.
