O wind (that drives away the) sin-cloud! Maker of prosperity!

O Destroyer of Parasurama's conceit!
One praised by the amazed Rudra and others!
O Ornament to the solar dynasty!
O Doer of innumerable marvellous heroics! Lord of Venkata!

Commentary

  • In this kriti, Patnam Subrahmanya Iyer describes his beloved Lord Venkateswara as Rama, the crowned Emperor of Ayodhya. Lord Ramachandra incarnated in the lineage of King Raghu (who was the descendant of vivaswAn, the Sun). The poet describes several of Rama's heroic deeds including subjugating the arrogance of parazurAma.
  • All the nouns in this song are declined in the vocative case ("O <noun>!").
  • This kriti is very popular because of its zesty pace of both the sahityam and the interluding swaras.
