kurai ondrum illai

4:46 PM Posted by Vijayasri

'kurai ondrum illai' is one of the famous tamil devotional song which was tuned by Shri Kadayanallur Venkatraman, who was a close associate of Shri Semmangudi. Rajaji has weaved those beautiful words into an amazing song and here is a video sung by none other than the M.S.Subbulakshmi amma who has made this lively song divine and immortal with her soulful voice!

To mention the raagams, this is a Raagamalika, means the whole song is not based on just one raagam. The pallavi and anupallavi are sung in Shivaranjani while the charanam is rendered in Shivaranjani,Kapi and Sindubhairavi.

Below is the lyrics and meaning of this song.

The meaning behind the divine lyrics:

I have no problem Oh, Lord, Kanna! I do not have anything to say, Kanna! I have no complaint, Oh, Govindaa! You are invisible, Oh, kanna! Yet, I have no problem, Oh, Kanna! When Lord Venkateswara is ready to give us what we want, why do we desire anything, Oh, Kanna! Manivanna, malaiappa, Govindaa! You are standing behind a screen, Oh Lord! Only those scholars who are well-versed in the Vedas can “see” you. Yet, I have no problem; No problem even if I do not see You.Oh Lord, You are standing on a hill. I do not have any problem still.You have incarnated yourself into a stone-form recognising the necessity during Kali Yuga. You are permanently here in this Temple. You do not refuse the request from any of your devotees. You also have the merciful Goddess Lakshmi residing in Your chest. So, what deficiency can I have? I have no complaint, Kanna, manivanna, malaiappa, Govindaa, Govindaa!Govindaa, Govindaa! Govindaa, Govindaa! Govindaa, Govindaa!
