కాదుఁగూడదని ముక్తి కడకేఁగినా
శ్రీదేవుఁడవైన శ్రీవేంకటేశ నిను

Notes:
------------

This song falls under the category of Spiritual Devotional songs by Saint Annamacharya. "Seeking Refuge at the Ideal's feet" is an integral part of the Bhakti tradition of yoga, which this song epitomizes. Note that here he is not even asking for Refuge, he is in a way bullying the Lord, claiming that he already entered His Refuge and now its up to Him. He even goes on to remind him that even if all else abandon him, even if Liberation itself does, God as the in-dweller Himself can not!
