Oh Dayaa Devi! Through the timely floods of Your Dayaa, the crop of PrapannAs get irrigated and nourished thoroughly and the Lord of ThiruvEnkatam, the farmer, who labors in His LeelA VibhUthi is delighted by Your efforts on His behalf
In this world, a farmer tills the soil, seeds the fields, irrigates the growing crop with the waters from the river in anticipation of abundant harvest. He removes the weeds during the growing season and chases away the animals that might eat away the growing plants. When the fields are full of tall paddy sheaves, the farmer is very pleased with his efforts to have nurtured the seedlings to their full cycle of growth.In a similar manner, Bhumi is the field for growing the crops. The Lord of Thirumala is the toiling farmer working on those fields. The water that nourishes the field is the flood of Your Dayaa. Those who performed SaraNAgathy at the Lord’s sacred feet are the crops growing in that field. The tall hill from which The Lord oversees His crops is the sacred hill of Thiruvenkadam. Oh Dayaa Devi! Your Lord wishes that all the world thrive well. For this purpose, He unites the chEthanams with SadAchAryAs to be blessed with Tatthva Jn~Anamand UpAya anushtAnam (Bhakthi or Prapatthi). The Lord of Thirumala waits for the floods of Yours (Dayaa Devi) to immerse the seeded fields for optimal growth and protects with extraordinary care the growing crops from His perch on top of the hills. The Prapannas thriving from Your Dayaa and the Lord’s care bless the world with their presence. The Lord is pleased with His efforts and You (Dayaa Devi) are the reason for all these auspicious happenings.
