Theruvathu Yeppo Nenje
By Neelakanta Sivan
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Sage Neelakanta Sivan was a great composer belonging to South Travancore and lived at the end of 19th century. Though a very great composer of Carnatic music Krithis, many people do not know about him. His Disciple Papanasam Sivan is however well known. www.carnaticcorner.com/articles/nilakanta_sivan.html as well as www.carnatica.net/neelakantasivan.htm give a detailed account of this composer and his Krithis. Though he is said to have composed over 2000 Krithis very few of them are now available.]

Theruvathu yeppo nenje, thelindhu karai,
Yeruvathu yeppo nenje

Koorum vedathin unmai ariyamale, Ajnana,
Kaar irulil kavizhndhu kalangi mayangi ninraal

1. Manne, porulaye, yendhan manaivi maindhare, sondha,
Kanne neengale yallal gathiyillai yendru irundhal

2. Udale nilai yendru yenni, ulaga vazhvu idhai nambi,
Madamai peruga nindru vana mrugam pol alainthaal

3. Andam alantha malum ayanum alava Neela,
Kandam karunai thedum karuthu unarar agil janmam

English translation

Oh mind when shall I win, Oh mind when shall I realize,
And get back to the shore

If without understanding the truth of Vedas we chant,
We get drowned in the darkness of great ignorance,
And stand completely confused and benumbed

1. If we think that land, property, our wife, our children as,
Our own dear and feel that without them we cannot live

2. If we think that body is permanent and completely have faith in worldly life,
And stand with increasing foolishness and wander like wild animals

3. If in this birth we do not know meaning of Neelakanta,
Who were beyond the measure of Lord Vishnu and Brahma who seek his mercy.
