Saint Thyagaraja
Translated by

                 Act 4. Lord Hari offers boons and Prahladha wants only devotion to his feet.
  (  Lord Hari who had    come before Prahladha is greatly pleased. He   blessed Prahladha and requested him to ask for any boons. Prahladha replied to him that when Lord who was    like the wish giving tree    was himself present before him, Where was the need to have another    twig of grass. He  asked only being able to serve the feet of Lord Hari  ,.. Lord Hari in turns blessed Prahladha    becoming    greatly pleased with him.)
    Prahladha on   seeing Hari started praying to him   and the Lord wanted to show the world the greatness   of his devotee  .Lord Hari felt that  it was   interesting to converse   with those  who appreciate  . He wanted to give salvation to Prahladha   but he wanted the other  pious people    to understand the greatness of the soul of Prahladha and he spoke the following words to Prahladha .
“I am the God who is above all and has all. I would like to fulfill all    your desires and so ask any number   of boons that  you want from me  .” Prahladha  then replied”Oh Lord I was enjoying thegreat sight of yours. Are you trying to distract me  , by putting a twig in the   sweet drink which I am drinking now.Suppose I started asking   for you useless thinks  , my mind would  never get satisfied. So please do not grant me    any boons but please do protect me  . “ saying this  Prahladha sang the     following Krithi.

   Lord Hari  was greatly pleased     and wanted     to test him further  and told him, “Oh Prahladha , devotees like you are   very rare and that   is why , I love you     too much. If later people ask you , what did you get by seeing me and  suppose you reply , nothing, would not those  people    start laughing at me, This    would affect   my fame   as the boon giver. So you have to ask for some boons and accept them.” Prahladha was    greatly confused   and Lord   Hari  sings the following Krithi.

He requests    Prahladha to explain his mind fully in such a way that   all people   can understand it  . Then Prahladha realizing that    there is no other option explains his  inner most thoughts  to Hari. Then Prahladha praises  Lord Hari in various ways and   sings the following song:-

1,Kshithi nadhula   rakayu  , sam-
mAthi leka  Sri Saketha ,
Pathi radeyana vacchunanina ,
SAthiki   galgina yanandamu
1.Give me that   happiness  Of Sita , which she got
When she Got the answer  “He would come”,
When she became sad  and asked, “Why has the king,
Of Saketha  not come so far?”
2.Cheliyaro   navale  nathi, naku,
Galaremo   raledhani  jail,
Thelisi  mrokku koni vela ,
Balimini  nedhuraina   Sukamu
2. Give me that  pleasure  when you appeared there suddenly,
When Sita was asking her girl  friends, “Oh friends , To my lord,
How many ladies are there like me?And still he has not come”
Making  her friend pitying  on  her after    understanding her sorrow.
3.KOnchemi  rioopamaa  villu,
Vancha  koodaka   pono  yani  ,
Yenchi jail   jandhamenu,
Banji  kanipincha katla.
3,Please show  your grace to me ,
Like when you showed your  Viswa roopa(mega form),
To Sita  when she was worrying  thinking that  you who were ,
Looking  like a boy would not be    able to bend that  Bow.
4.Yettivarikaina   dorachu,
Natti janakaqjanu   bottu
Katti  karamu battu vela,
Kanthaku nna  sukhamu thanaku
4.Grant me that pleasure    that   you gave ,
To Sita    when you held her   hands  tightly  ,
When you got married    to her  ,,
Though it was extremely difficult ,
For  any one    to get married   to her.
 5.KOrina varalanu  nay nee-
Reethi brothunani sapha-,
Varalaku  deliya   jeyu  ,
Dhari   Thyagarajanuku.
5.Please make  the people of world ,
Understand   how you   would protect  ,
All those who surrendered to you  ,
And shower your grace on this Thyagaraja
  Prahladha requests Hari   with  the same type of devotion that   Sita had  on him  . He says that  if what Sage Narada    has taught him properly   he should not deceive   him. Then Prahladha fell at the feet of Lord Hari and felt as if   a son is saluting his mother . Then the sages blessed Prahladha   and that    he had become similar to one who has crossed    the ocean if Samsara  . Lord Hari also realized that  Prahladha   was totally immersed in devotion to him. Then the Lord lifted Prahladha and kept  him on his  lap  and then hugged him.Then Lord Hari told him that he argued    with him only to know his mind.   And then the Lord blessed him in all ways. Prahladha then worshipped him
