Lyrics

Pallavi

jagadOddhArana ADisidaLezOda
Yashoda pampered the Lord of the Universe!

Charanam

jagadOddhArana maganendu tiLiyuta
magugaLa mANikyana ADisidaLezOda
Thinking the Lord of the Universe was her son
Yashoda pampered the gem among children!
nigamake nilukada agaNita mahimana
suguNAntarangana ADisidaLezOda
(Yashoda pampered the) One whose powers are beyond description even in the scriptures
Yashoda pampered the font of goodness!
aNOraNIyana mahatO mahIyana
apramEyana ADisidaLezOda
(Yashoda pampered the) One smaller than an atom and greater than the greatest,
Yashoda pampered the incomparable Lord!
paramapuruSana paravAsudEvana1
purandara viThalana ADisidaLezOda
(Yashoda pampered the) Supreme being and Lord Vishnu himself,
Yashoda pampered Lord Purandara Vittala!

Commentary

  • 1vAsudEva and vAsu are other names for Vishnu, whose usage predates the birth of vAsudEva Krishna. vAsudEva is sometimes incorrectly translated as son of vasudEva (the prince of Vrishni and the father of vAsudEva Krishna, whose name actually means the lord of vasus, one of the nine gaNas of divine beings).
  • B.S. Rajaiyengar is credited with the first known recording of the song in Kapi.
  • M.S. Subbulakshmi's recital of the song at the United Nations is probably its best-known rendition.
