Pallavi: Shobillu Saptaswara Sundarula Bhajimpave Manasa! Anupallavi: Naabhi Hrut Kanta Rasana NaasaadhulaYandu Charanam: Dhara Rig Saamaadulalo Vara Gaayathri Hrudayamuna Sura Bhusura Maanasamuna Shubha Tyagarajuni Yeda MEANING: O Mind (“manasa”)! Praise (“Bhajimpave”) the divine forms (“sundarula”) of the seven (“sapta”) musical notes (“svara”). Which glow (“yandu”) in the navel (“naabhi”), heart (“hrut”), neck (“kanta”), tongue (“rasana”) and nose (“naasaadhula”) of the human body. Which shine in the four Vedas (“Dhara Rig Samaadulalo”) and in the sublime Gayathri Mantra as its essence (“Hrudayamuna”). Which sparkle (“shubha”) in the hearts (“maanasamuna”) of the celestials (“sura”), of worthy Bhusuras and of Tyagaraja.

Oh, Mind ("maanasa") ! Undertake your pilgrimage ("sancharare") in the Brahmam ! May the hairlock of Brahma ("madashiki"), meditated upon by you, be adorned ("alankrutha") with the plumes of an exhilarated peacock ("chikure") ! The cheeks ("mukure") of the Supreme One ("mahaneeya") outwit ("vijita") the brightness of a mirror ("kapola") ! He sports ("vihare") around with ("durga") Mahalakshmi ("sriramani")! For his devotees ("sevaka"), He is a Kalpavriksha ("mandaare") in the court yard ("mandira")! Supreme ("parama") ascetics ("hamsa") delight in that face-moon ("mukha-chandra") as a partridge bird ("chakore")! Oh, Mind! May your pilgrimage be in this Brahma that fills ("paripooritha") the whole Universe with the flow of the music from His flute ("muraliravadhare") !
