Nin_nantha Swami Enage Untu – Purandaradasa

Ni_nantha Swami Enage Untu | Ninagilla|| Ni_nantha Tandeyu Enage Untu | Ninagilla||

Ni_nantha Doreyu  Enage Untu | Ninagilla|| Neene Paradeshi Naane Swadeshi|

Ninnarasi Lakumi Enna Taayi| Ninna Taaya To_ro Purandaravithala||

ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ ||  ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ತಂದೆಯು ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ ||

ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ದೊರೆಯು  ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ ||  ನೀನೆ ಪರದೇಶಿ ನಾನೇ ಸ್ವದೇಶೀ |

ನಿನ್ನರಸಿ ಲಕುಮಿ ಎನ್ನ ತಾಯಿ | ನಿನ್ನ ತಾಯ ತೋರೋ ಪುರಂದರವಿತ್ಥಳ||

This ia a unique composition of Saint Purandaradasa! The Saint makes a comparision as to who is more fortunate – the Bhakta (devotee) or Bhagavan (the Lord)!! Purandaradasa says that a devotee indeed has Lord Narayana himself as his:

1) Swami (Lord or in today’s terms Boss),

2) Father,

3) and King.

“Oh Lord!! Do you have a Master, a Father, or a King who would indeed look after your needs. Do you have a mother!!??”

“As a devotee , I am indeed fortunate to have you as my Sarvasva (my-all-in-all) . You being the Lord, yet you have none!!”

Here Purandaradasa points out that a devotee is never alone. When a devotee invokes and seeks the help of Lord, the Lord readily comes forward to protect his devotee as a Father, Mother, King and so on….

How fortunate a Bhakta is to have the Lord with him ….!!
