Positive Approach

A cursory glance of Venkata Kavi's krtis will enable us to understand that he lived in a very exalted plane in life, much above the mundane approach, which enabled him to eternally think of God and music.


kodukka kannanirukka

kooda raadhai irukka kuraidaane kaanomadi

"When we have Lord Krshna accompanied by Radha to give us everything, what can we complain about?"


vaangum enakku irukai aanaal arulai

vazhangum unakku pannirukai engal

vadivela neelamayilerum tanikai valar

"While I've only two hands to receive, you have 12 to bestow boons, oh Vadivela!"


In another composition on Guru, he says "what more do I want when I have access to my Guru's lotus feet? What can be greater than this?"

innum enna venum sholladi – enakinnum ennadaan venum sholladi – engum

inaiyillaada sadguru malaradihalum irundida adanilum shiranda oru porul


Another composition which shows that his thoughts were always consumed by devotion to the Lord and singing his praise –


koduttu vaitta punniyavaan

kuttramillaada harikathaiyadanai

shatrukkanamenum kettavar yevaro

kondu padam paadi ninravar evaro

guru padamalar tozhudavar evaro – avare

"The most blessed person is one who has heard the flawless stories of Hari atleast for a second, one who has sung his praise through songs and one who has saluted the Guru's feet!"


Venkata Kavi's songs are always filled with a positive vibration and shows that he always dwelt on extolling the divine.
