Pallavi. Is your luck bigger or is our luck bigger,
Anupallavi: Cordially let us compare them and see.
1.For gold and money, there is a great fear (of losing them),
But for the wealth of the name of Rama, there is fear of none.
2. There is a fear of thieves in case of bangles and necklaces,
But for the garland of thulasi , there is no fear of any one.
3.There is fear of worry for business and employment,
But for the profession of begging, there are no problems whatsoever.
4.There is the fear of decaying in case of provisions, sugar , ghee and lentils,
But for the nectar like name of Hari there is no worry at all.
5.Your fortune is goddess Lakshmi and our luck is Narayana,
Purandara Vittala is the master of the luck of yours as well as ours.
