kereya nIranu – Shri Purandara Dasaru

Composer: Purandara Dasaru
Language: Kannada

keraya nIranu kerakgae chelli
varava padedavarante ka aNirO
Hariya karuNadoLaada bhAgyava
hari samarpaNe maadi badukiro
shrI purandara viTTalarAyAna charaNa kamalava nambi badukiro

Meaning: 

keraya nIranu kerakgae chelli – Put back the Lake water to the Lake

This manava janma is the blessed gift given to us by Lord Shriman Narayana in order  to do saadhane, and the same must be given back to him after fulfilling the purpose with Harih Vayu anugraha. “Manava janma dodaddhu” – this Human birth is the greatest gift says Purandara dasaru in one of his krithis.

It is not easy to get Gyana,bhakthi vairagya. Summane baruvudhu mukthi? asks Gopala Dasaru.

So, what is the way for attaining the mukthi, let us prostrate before our guru Sri PurandaraDasaru to guide us, 

“Rama” nama must be remembered by our manas each and every second , and that is one of the easiest and secret way to attain the bliss. “Gyanigaligae iddhe moola mantra” says Purandara dasaru. 

It is not easy to get Gyana and with that Gyana one must see Lord with Bhakthi but our Dasaru has now given us the secret key to open the Lock! 

varava padedavarante ka aNirO  Hariya karuNadoLaada bhAgyava

With Lord’s blessings success will be the result and with that always feel like a blessed person in this entire Jagath. Getting his holiness blessings can be only achieved through divine faith and gyana/bhakthi.

hari samarpaNe maadi badukiro shrI purandara viTTalarAyAna charaNa kamalava nambi badukiro

Nara janma has been taken by all of us for the only reason- to achieve ‘bimba roopa dharshan’ of antaryamin Sri Harih. Always have the smarane of Lotus like feet of Lord Shri Purandara Dasa and always attribute the same to him. Dasaru says we must mediate on antaryamin bhagavantha roopa to achieve his dharshan,  which is the only way for attaining his Loka. Each and every day we must increase our saadhane in this way!

Dasara divya compositions will be translated with my yatha shakthi knowledge and will be posted going forward. Your comments are always welcome! 

Let Sri Haridasaru antharkatha Sri Vayu antharkatha Lord Sri Purandara Vitthala bless all.
