Translated by

Raga Karaharapriya
Thala AAdhi

Pallavi

Chakkani raja margamu undaga,
SAndhula doraneelee Oh Manasa

Anupallavi

Chikkani paalu mee gada undaga,
Cheeyanu gangasagara mele.

Charanam

Kantiki Sundara taramagu roopame,
Mukkanti noda chelage naamame,
Thyagarajinthane nelakona deivamee,
Itu vanti Sri Saketha Ramuni Bhakthiyane.

English translation

Pallavi

When there is a pretty royal highway,
Why travel in narrow streets, Oh mind.

Anupallavi

When you have thick tasty milk available,
Firmly say no to the hateful toddy.

Charanam

When the eyes feast of his very pretty form,
When Lord Shiva repeats his name,
When that God is living with Thyagaraja
And when you have this type of devotion to Rama of Ayodhya,
Why travel in narrow streets
