A very simple and melodious Bhajan by Sri Annamacharya describing the divine features of Lord Venkatesa:
parama purusha nirupamAna - shanmukhapriya - Adi tAlam
Pallavi: parama purusha nirupamAna SaraNu SaraNu rE Ye Ye Ye indirA nija mandirA|| Oh supreme lord, You are incomparable. I surrender to you. Your heart is Lakshmi's abode.
Anupallavi: kamala nAbha kamala nayana kamala charaNa rE amita sura muni nAtha yoodhapa nAyaka varadAyaka || Your navel emanates lotus.Your eyes are shaped like lotus petals. You are the Lord of Devatas and saints. You are care taker of the cows and provider of boons.
Charanam: chatura mooriti chatura bAhu Sankha chakra dhara atiSaya Sri venkaTAdhipa anjana kruti ranjana ||
You are absolute. Having four arms, you hold the conch and the discus. Oh Lord of Venkata hill, you are marvellous. Anjana sings your praise.
In this song Annamaiah describes the divine appearence and the glory of Lord Venkatesa.

paTTina dellA brahmamu
In this song Annamaiah explains the nature of people. He says that some are ignorant, some are money-minded , some are lustful and some are totally immersed with family but none is mindful of spirituality.
P paTTina dellA brahmamu daTTapu jaDunaku daivambElA || Ignorant person feels that whatever he takes up is ultimate. Why is he bothered of God? C 1 ghana yAchakunaku kanakamE brahmamu tanuvE brahmamu taruvaliki enaya kAmuna kintulE brahmamu tana lO veligETi tatvambElA || A beggar considers gold only as God. Money-minded people consider that their body is ultimate. A lustful person thinks that women are ultimate joy. Why are they bothered of the spiritual light within themselves? C 2 AkaTi vAniki annamE brahmamu lOkamE brahmamu lOluniki kaikoni karmiki kAlamE brahmamu SrikAntuni pai chintadi ElA || Food is supreme to the hungry one. Worldly activity is ultimate to the covetous one. Time is God to the one immersed in work. How can they contemplate on the Supreme Lord? C 3 bhuvi samsAriki putrule brahmamu navamindariki naDachEdi ivalanu venkaTESu dAsulaku bhAva matani krupE brahmamu || In this world children are ultimate to a family head. They find new interests in their daily routine. Only Sri Venkatesa's grace is the supreme bliss to his devotees.
