Is this the place where Sri Hari lives,
I see Adhisesha's ten thousand hoods.

There it is which is rare even to Brahma and others,
There is the permanent abode of all sages,
There I am seeing it filled with salvation and joy.

Which is the constant abode of all devas,
And right in front is the hidden treasure,
With its golden peaks and is full of Brahman,

Which is the head of Venkitachalapathy,
Who considers it as a place of all his wealth,
And for all the word, it is filled with divine good.

And the pain which we get in the mind when we get overjoyed
Would carry away the dirt and sacrifice of exuberance

So that I would be able to control my fate,
Since you are a very noble one, Oh Victorious one,
And have attained pleasure by making passionate love with her

As you have attitude of love to your darling wife.
Please destroy my fear, oh Lord of Venkata
And make me shining, as I am attracted by you.

Brahman is one, Para Brahman is one,
Para Brahman is one, Para Brahman is one,
* This is a sound keeping beat in a folk dance.

Charanam

1. There are no differences between the high and low people,
For the soul within them is nothing but Hari,
And in this all animals are same like us,
For the soul within them is nothing but Hari.

2. There are no differences in sleep between the king and his servant,
The sleep that comes to all of them is the same,
The earth that a Brahmin or Chandala stands is the same,
For in every one their soul is nothing but Hari.

3. The pleasure from making love is same for Gods and us,
Similarly for the insects and animals the pleasure of love making is same,
The day and the night is the same for the rich and the poor,
And for all beings these are always same.

4. For the one who eats superior food the toungue is one,
And For the one who eats condemned inferior food also it is same,
The air that carries the scent from place to place is same,
And so is the air which carries foul smell is the same.

5. The sun that shines over elephant in the forest is same,
And the Sun that shines over a street dog also is the same,
And very good blessed deeds and very sinful acts,
Are made same only by the name of Lord Venkateswara.
