Aparadhi Naanalla


Sage Purandara Dasa

Translated by



Aparadhi naanalla Aparadha venagilla,
Kapata nataka suthradhari neene


1.Neene adisadirulu jadavunkeya bombe enu,
Madalu balladu thana bara ninitta
Suthradhi calipvu kaikalugalu
Neena mukkisalu mukkavada ado avanu

2.Ondendu bagila pattanake nannadendu,
Ippattaru maneyalgala,
Tandu kavala nillisi enna ni olagittu munde
Bhvadali pava neebudanayaya

3.Yantra vahaka neene olagiddu enna,
Swatatra nendenisi kolusuvare helo,
Kantu pita Lakshmeesa endada dandahud Ananda,
Murthi namma Purandara vittala

English translation


I am not the culprit and the punishment is not for me,
You are the one who runs evening in your false drama


1.You are making me act like a magical doll,
And since you do it, the burden is yours
And I am but a doll activated by string in your hand,
And I feel that I am but a pounding stick in our hands.

2.In this town of mine , with several doors,
With its twenty six houses,
You have put guard on each of them, with me inside,
And I feel you are sitting innocently , as if none of these is your act.

3.You are the operator of the machine and please tell,
Whether me who is inside is independent to do as I like,
Oh Lord of Lakshmi , The God who is Purandara Vittala,
Be pleased to answer my question.
