MEANING: (From TK Govinda Rao’s book)

O damsels with ("konna") charming ("chaala") teeth ("kallaladu")! Come along to worship Sri Ranganaatha. He was worshipped by Sri Rama Himself. He is the Abode of all divine charms and attributes. With pearl studded rings and pendants sporting lustrously at His ears and a golden shawl daintily covering His bosom this juvenile Charmer of The Universe is its Transcendent Source.

He has a beautiful face rivaling moon’s. He has mellifluent speech. He is the Bestower of happiness to all. He is ravishingly beautiful. He is the Subject and Object of all Vedas and Scriptures. He is the prop of the Universe. He is worshipped by Tyagaraaja. Young damsels! Come let us feast our eyes on His ravishing beauty.

Pallavi:

Chaala Kallalaadu Konna Saukhya Emiraa!
