Advaita in Annamacharya’s words

The family and I have been reading Pavan Verma’s Adi Shankaracharya. This morning when I heard Trichur Brothers rendition of Nanati Padhuku is when I realized Annamacharya had packed the essence of Advaita in his song.

This (everyday) life is a drama
The observable that remains unseen
is moksha – liberation

Being born and dying are the truth
Everything in between is but a drama
While the world is right in front of us
The reality is moksha – liberation

Enjoying a feast and wrapping ourselves in finery
All this work in this world is but a drama
Only when we get past these dualities
Will we achieve moksha – liberation
