Meaning:
O mind! When the spacious royal path to salvation is available, why should you take to by-lanes? When nutritious creamy milk is available, will anyone think of detestable toddy Gangasagaram? When you can feast your eyes on the ravishingly beautiful form of SRI RAMA, when LORD SHIVA is eternally chanting the name of SRI RAMA, who has condescended to grace the abode of Tyagaraja, why should you resort to devious and labyrinthine paths instead of the royal path to salvation?

From Compositions of Tyagaraja by TK Govinda Rao.


Notation:
Notation available here at Shivkumar Kalyanaraman's Krithi Archive. Also, listen to the music class here.


Other information:
Lyrics contributed by Lakshman Ragde.

This song of Tyagaraja's has the distinction of being composed with the most sangatis - numbering about 50 sangatis for the pallavi alone!

This song shows bhakti as described here with partial meaning.
