Meaning: http://www.annamayyakeerthanalu.in/2011/09/lyrics-of-annamacharya-keerthana-nanati.html

 

This day to day (nAnATi) life (batuku) is a drama (nATakamu)
What is seen yet not seen clearly (kAnaka kannadi exactly means something which is seen yet not seen; for instance an object at a far off distance) is liberation/salvation (kaivalyamu)

 

To be born (puTTuTayu) is truth (nijamu), to die (pOvuTayu literal meaning is to go; to leave) is truth. All the work (pani) in between these two (naTTanaDimi) is a drama. That which is right in front (yeTTa neduTagaladI) is the world (prapaNcamu). That which is the ultimate last (kaTTakaDapaTidi) is liberation.

 

To partake/relish (kuDicEdi) rice/food (annamu), to wrap around (cuTTeDidi) a cloth/saree (kOka), this conjured-in-the-middle (naDamantrapu) work (pani) is a drama. When one crosses beyond (gaDidATinapuDE) the above mentioned dual duties (vubhayakarmulu) only then there is liberation.

takadu - does not get cut

papamu - sin

tiradu - no completion of ; not enough of

punyamu - good deeds

naki naki - is something to laugh about (in tamil : 'nagai' - to be laughed at)

kalamu - time ; because of time; bound by time

natakamu - drama

yeguvane - the one who is a higher place; the only higher place

Shri vengateshvaru - Lord Sri Venkateswara

gaganamu - akasam; sky; the universe

mididi - beyond the skies and the universe

kaivalyamu - salvation/ liberation

(Our sins don't dwindle. Our good deeds don't extend. In between these, we do something and that is the much laughable drama. Beyond these there is one and only one Lord Sri Venkateshwara. Beyond the universe He is there and that is where the liberation is)
