ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ || ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ತಂದೆಯು ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ ||
ನಿನ್ನಂಥ ದೊರೆಯು ಎನಗೆ ಉಂಟು | ನಿನಗಿಲ್ಲ || ನೀನೆ ಪರದೇಶಿ ನಾನೇ ಸ್ವದೇಶೀ |
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),
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 ….!!
