Karu Vel puli neeku
Karu vel puli neeku sari
Kharukku jila kara Sambakku andhara mainattu kaani
1.Deevuttiki Deepamu Reethi,
Kavettiki Galuvala reethi kaani
2.Dammi vairiki tharakala reethi,
Kammavelthuniki Kanthi narula rethi kani
3.SAgaramunakku Sarassu reethi
Thyagaraja vinutha daralo neeku sari
Other Gods are not equal to you
Like the difference that is there between superior Samba rice
And the very inferior Kar rice.
1. Like a lamp is not similar to a torch,
And canals are not similar to river Cauvery.
2. Like a moon is not similar to stars,
And ordinary men are not similar in splendour to God of love.
3. Like a pond is not similar to the sea,
The God praised by Thyagaraja is not ,
Equal to any one in this world.
