Endundi Vedalithivo

 

Ragam: Durbar

Talam: Misra Chapu

Composer: Tyagaraja

Version: Hyderabad Brothers

 

Pallavi:

Endundi Vedalithivo ?  Yevuro ? Ne Theliya  Ipudaina Delupuvayya

 

Anupallavi:

Anda Chandamu Verai  Nadatalella Trigunaatitamai

Yunnade Gaani ;  Sree Raama! Ni!

 

Charanam:

Citukante Naparaadha Chayamula Dagilinche      Sivalokamu Gadu

Vatu Rupudai Balini  Vanchinchi Yanachuvaani  Vaikuntamu Gaadu

Vita Vachanamulaadi Siramu Drumpa Badda       Vidhilokamu Gadu

Ditavu Dharmamu Satyamu Mrudhubhaashalu  Galugu Divyaroopa! Tyagaraaja Vinuta!

 

 

MEANING: (From T.K. Govinda Rao’s book)

O Rama! Where from (“endundi” or “yevuro”) do you you hail (“vedalithivo”) ? Please tell me (“delupavaiyya”).

 

Your divine beauty and flawless attributes (“anda chandamu”) mark you out as a class (“vere nadatalella”) by yourself.

The excellence of your conduct and character transcend (“atitha”) those of Gods met within this and other worlds (“triguna”).

 

You could not have come from Sivaloka where transgressions (“chitukante aparaadha”) attract disproportionately stringent penalties (“Chayamula Dagilinche”).

Nor could you be from Vaikunta where Vaamana (“vaturupudai”) got the better (“vanchinchi”) of Bali by and artful strategem. Satyaloka (“vidhiloka”) is also ruled out (“gaadu”) where Brahma (“vidhi”) had one of his five heads chopped off (“drumpa”) by Rudra for his indiscrete behavior (“vitavachanamulaadi”). You on the other hand are firmly (“ditavu”) wedded to Truth (“satyamu”) and Righteousness (“dharmamu”). One with strength and mellifluent (“mridhu”) speech (“bhaashalu”)!
