Meaning & Comments: (Courtesy: V.Sadagopan)
Pallavi: Oh RaamachandrA ! I have now come to know ("delisEnu") about the sins ("duDuku") that I committed ("jEyu") in my previous ("toil") births ("Janmamuna")

 

Anupallavi:

The results of these sins are very perceptible to me now. The situation is clear as a fruit ("phalamEmO") in the palm ("chEti") of my hand ("yara"). One does not need ("valEnA") a mirror ("kaddamu") to see the boil ("puNTi") in one's palm.

 

Charanam:

Will the ("naTarA") superior ("ramyamau") Varahu SamphA crop -- fine paddy sprout -- ("vari molaka") survive in the midst of raagi ("Raagi") crop ("Pairula")? Will it be compatible with the Raagi crop? No ! Similarly , O the one who sleeps ("shayana") on a serpent("naaga")  couch, the auspicious fruits ("raajillu nerchu") resulting from Your Naama SankIrthanam will be destroyed by its association ("tOnu") with the sins ("paapamu") from poorva JanmAs . The merit of Your holy ("punyamu") name ("naama") will be incompatible ("chelagunA") with the company of my sins !

 

Comments:
This krithi was composed by Saint ThyagarAjA in a mood (SanchAri BhAvam) of NirvEdham (Dejection , Despondency). In this mood and the allied moods of Aathma GarhaNam and NaiccyAnusandhAnam (self depreciation ), a Bhakthan deplores his pitiable lot and in a plaintive mood (DhainyOkthi) seeks the Lord's dayA and karuNA katAksham .
