Akkaraku Rani Chuttamu
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (Shiva Rathri )
The sandal wood gives off its fragrance when rubbed against a stone. The sweetness of sugar cane is enjoyed by chewing it again and again. The gold shines brilliantly when it is put in fire to remove the impurities. In spite of all troubles and tribulations a noble man will not let go of the noble values and virtues.
Niddura Nundi Lechi00:01:00
Oblivious you are from dawn to dusk, To the Eternal and the Divine. And indifferent you remain to lessons learnt, Preoccupied with just filling your belly. O Man! Reflect deeply on how you spend your time And tell me what great happiness have you attained By so wasting your life?
During his youth and boyhood, man mixes with several people and spends his time playing with them. As he advances in age, he involves himself in satisfying his desires, runs after women and seeks love and affection. When he grows older, he wants to earn money and amass wealth so that he can use it for his pleasure. When he becomes quite aged, he does not think of the Divine but spends his time in many different ways and finds himself unable to give up the attachments which he has developed in his life. In this manner, man simply wastes his life, turns it into mud and becomes utterly useless in the end.
