nanAti badhukku

11:26 AM Posted by Vijayasri


'nAnati baduku' is a beautiful Annamacharya Krithi set on raaga Revathi.
Revathi is a janya of 2nd melakarta raaga, Rathnaangi that evokes karuna rasa(pathos) especially when the nishadham is elongated.
Other than Shadjam and Panchamam, Revathi takes Suddha Rishabam, Suddha Madyamam, and Kaishiki Nishadam and is a Audava Raaga ( 5 notes in arohanam and avarohanam).

Lyrics of 'nanati baduku':

Raaga : Revathi
Aro : S R1 M1 P N2 S

Meaning of Annamacharya Krithi 'nana batuku'


Meaning :
Pallavi:
This day to day (nAnATi) life (batuku) is a drama (nATakamu)
What is to not seen clearly (kAnaka kannadi exactly means something which is seen yet not seen; for instance an object at a far off distance) is liberation/salvation (kaivalyamu)

Charanam 1:
To be born (puTTuTayu) is truth (nijamu), to die (pOvuTayu literal meaning is to go; to leave) is truth. All the work (pani) in between these two (naTTanaDimi) is a drama. That which is right in front (yeTTa neduTagaladI) is the world (prapaNcamu). That which is the ultimate last (kaTTakaDapaTidi) is liberation.

Charanam 2:
To partake/relish (kuDicEdi) rice/food (annamu), to wrap around (cuTTeDidi) a cloth/saree (kOka), this conjured-in-the-middle (naDamantrapu) work (pani) is a drama. When one crosses beyond (gaDidATinapuDE) the above mentioned dual duties (vubhayakarmulu) only then there is liberation.

Charanam 3:
There is no break (tegadu literally means it doesn't cut/snap like for instance to say a rope doesn't cut) to sin (pApamu). There is never completion (tIradu) to good/holiness (puNyamu). All this laughing (and also laughable) (nagi nagi) time (kAlamu) is a drama. Above (yeguvane literally means at a higher place) there is only ONE VenkaTEShvara. That which is even beyond (mIdidi means one which is above; here in percepetion) the sky (gaganamu) is liberation.
