Purandara Dasar's Kriti - Rama Nama Paayasakke:
with transliteration, meaning and accompanying music by Sudha Raghunathan (thanks).
naama payasakke krshna naama sakkare
vithala naama tuppava kalasi baaya chapparisiro
ommaana godiya tandu vairaagya kallali beesi
summane sajjige hosedu kammane shaavige hosedu
hrudayavembo madakeyalli bhaavavembo esaranittu
buddhiyinda paakamadi harivaanake badisikondu
aananda aanandavembo tegu banditu kaaneero
aanandamuruti namma purandara vithalana neneyiro
Translation (H.R. Chandrasekhar)
For the pudding of Rama's name, Krishna's name is sugar
Bring the wheat of piety, grind in the stone of detachment
In the pot of heart, put the water of feeling
When you burp with satisfaction and feel the Bliss,
