Adhi kathu bhajana manasa

By

Saint Thyagaraja

Translated by

P.R.Ramachander

Raga Yadu kula Khambothi
Thala Aadhi

Pallavi

Adhi kathu Bhajana manasa

Anupallavi

Yethalonensu dokkati,
Payyedha kalkinathiso nokati

Charanam

Goppa thanamugai yasa,
Kuthsitha vishaya pibhasa,
Meppulagai bahuvesa midi
Yuppathil letharu Thyagaraja vinutha.

English translation

Pallavi

Oh mind that is not Bhajana*
*Mass prayer singing

Anupallavi

What is thought in the mind is one,
And what is got as charity is another

Charanam

Desire for a great position,
Interest in base and bad things,
Putting on acts so that others appreciate
Is this Bhajana, Oh Rama who is sung by Thyagaraja
