Meaning: (by Dr. Aruna Turaga, CA)

In this geetham, Purandara dasa describes the various names by which the god Vishnu is called.
I pray to thee who possess a lotus in his navel (“paduma nabha”), the greatest of the men (“parama purusha”), the personification of eternal flame (“paramjyothi swarupa”) of life, the destroyer (“vandhya”) of adversity (“vidhura”), whose stories (“charitha”) are the illustrations of purity (“vimala”), is perched (“adhirohana”) on the prodigious bird Garuda (“vihanga”), dwells (“nivasa”) in the mighty ocean (“udhadhi”), reposes (“sayana”) on the powerful serpent Aadiseshu (“uraga”), is capable of miracles (“mahima”) which are greater than the greatest (“unnathonnatha”), is the greatest one of the yadava race (“yadukulothama”), Krishna, and as Rama, he had protected (“rakshaka”) the yagnya of the great maharshi Vishwamitra, had also preached (“sikshaka”) the importance of obeying the command (“Agnya”) of his parent, Dasaratha.
I worship thee who were the custodian of Vibhishana, the pious brother of the demon king Ravana. I praise thee who bestow (“vara daayaka”) everything on his followers (“vibhow”).
He endows all the good fortunes (“subha prada”), and fulfils all the sanguine aspirations (“su manorathaya”). He is our noble king (“surendra”) and he engages our spirit with cheerfulness (“mano ranjana”) and he is Rama, the lord of Purandara dasa.


The following video is an extract from Navakoti Narayana, an old kannada movie on the life story of Shri Dasashreshta Purandara Dasa. Shri Purandara Dasa is one of the greatest stalwarts of Karnatic music. He laid the foundations for teaching Karantic music with a simplified method. Today it is this method used to teach karnatic music to anyone and everyone in india. It is his compositions that are taught first to train students in music.
