వినరో భాగ్యము విష్ణుకథ - వెనుబలమిదివో విష్ణు కథ
ఆదినుండి సంధ్యాదివిధులలోవేదంబయినది విష్ణుకథ
నాదించీనిదె నారదాదులచేవీదివీధులనే విష్ణుకథ
వదలక వేదవ్యాసులు నుడిగినవిదితపావనము విష్ణుకథ
సదనంబైనది సంకీర్థనయైవెదకినచోటనే విష్ణుకథ.
గొల్లెతలు చల్ల గొనకొని చిలుకగవెల్లవిరియాయ విష్ణుకథ
యిల్లిదె శ్రీ వేంకటేశ్వరునామమువెల్లిగొలిపె నీవిష్ణుకథ.
Introduction to the Sankeertana
The Sankeertana is one of the 32,000 sung by Sri Annamacharya in praise of Lord Venkateswara. This Sankeertana is the delight the Lord's devotees relish upon the shravanam of Vishnu Katha, the story of the Lord. The keerthana is an address to the devotees of the Lord to listen with great enthusiasm; and assimilate the essence of the story of the Lord, Vishnu Katha.
Sri Annamacharya, in this Sankeerthana, describes that the mere listening to the Story of the Lord (Vishnu Katha) is as sacred a duty as to perform nitya karmas, for instance, Sandhya. The story of the Lord is a cushion to the devotee for keeping his life going happy just as a child is slept comfortably by its mother. The story of the Lord is what Vyasa Maharshi drawn quintessence from the Vedas and elucidated, into a soft and lucid tale. The story of the Lord is what Narada sings while roaming the three worlds! The story of the Lord is as fragrant and fresh as the cream and butter that has freshly emerged out of the buttermilk obtained by the ladies of the cowherd family. This story that sings the name of Lord Venkateswara is the Gateway to His abode. So, listen and relish the quintessence of the Vishnu Katha with great vigour and enthusiasm !!
