Ananda Natana Prakasam
By Muthuswami Dekshithar
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Thalam: Mishra Chapu
Ananda natana prakasam chithsabhesam,
Aasrayami Shivakama vallesam
I take shelter in the luster of the joyful dance,
Of the Lord of the divine stage who is the consort of Shivakami.
Bhanu koti samkasam,
Bhkthi mukthi prada daharakasam,
Dheena jana samrakshanachanam.
He who is like the billions of Suns,
He who is like the thin sky which gives wealth and salvation,
And who is one who protects the oppressed men.
Madhya Kala Sahithyam
Divya patathanjali Vyagrapada darsitha kunjithabja Charanam
The dancing feet which was seen by the divine Vyagrapada and Pathanjali.
Sheethamsu gangadharam, neela kandharam,
Sri Kedaraa dhi Kshethraadhaaram,
Bruthesam sardula charmambaramn Chidambaram,
Bhoosura trisahasra muneeswaram Visweswaram,
Nava neetha hrudayam sadaya guru guha thathamaadhyam,
Veda Vedhyam veetharaginam apremeya advaitha prathipadhyam,
Sangeetha vaadhya vinodha thandavajatha bahuthara bedachodhyam.
He who carries the moon and the Ganges, He who has a blue neck,
He who is the basis of Kedhara and other temples,
He who has a butter like heart, the Shiva who is the father of Guru Guha,
He who is studied by Vedas, who is dispassionate, who is dealt by the unfathomable Advaitha,
He who is entertained by music and dance in its very many different forms.
