|(1) Being not meant for Your worship and not coming near You, is it for the purpose of wandering here and there by becoming a slave to desires that this body has been nourished?|
(2) Without earning Your glance ceaselessly, is it for the purpose of looking at others’ wives on the sly that this body has been nourished?
(3) Without ever involving in remembrance of Your name, is it for the purpose of chattering in vain all sorts of gossips that this body has been nourished?
(4) Withdrawing hands by not performing Your worship, is it for the purpose of stretching them (hands) for getting such evilsome charities which are not prescribed in the World that this body has been nourished?
(5) Without circumambulating the blessed holy spots daily, is it for the purpose of wandering by running to be in the front for getting charity that this body has been nourished?
(6) Failing to bear here the name that ‘I am Your’s’, is it for the purpose that Lord of Death should trouble me, declaring derisively that ‘He is my man’, that this body has been nourished?
(7) O Lord praised by this Thygaraja! Please come; is it for the purpose of idling away my time without meditating on You that this body has been nourished?
- General – The word endings of all charanams are not uniform in the books.
- 1bhUri – this is short form of ‘bhUri dakSiNa’; in Vishnu Sahasranamam, one of the names of Lord is ‘bhUri dakSiNa:’ (502) –
- “He who gives away large gifts (Dakshinaa), as presents distributed at the end of the Sacrifices. When the body, mind and the intellect of man make sacrifices, man does Karmas. Lord Narayana is the One who gives the results for all actions: (Karma Phala Daataa); hence this term to indicate the Lord.” (Commentary by Adi Sankaracharya).
