Dear Bhagavathas and Bhagavathis,
:
:Happy new year and Pongal greetings!
:
:Sri Chandrasekaran recently requested translation of the Kannada Devara Nama
:by Purandara Dasa.
:
:Here is a rough translation. The translation is given in block letters- not
:that it is better than the original, but just to discriminate it from the
:original!

:Jagadodhdharana AadisidaLeyshodha
:Jagadodhdharana......
: YASHODA PLAYED(AadisidaLu)  WITH THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD (Jagadodharana)
:Jagadodhdharana maganendu thiLiyutha
:THINKING or PRETENDING (thiLiyutha) THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD
 AS HER SON (maganendu)
:SuguNaantha Rangana AadisidaLeyshodha ...
:YASHODA PLAYED WITH THE EMBODIMENT (antharangana) 
OF ALL GREAT QUALITIES(suguna)

COUNTS (AgaNitha) and MEASURES (Nigama)
:MagugaLa MaaNikyana AadisidaLeyshodha ...
:YASHODA PLAYED WITH  THE PEARL (MaaNikya) AMONG KIDS (magugala) .
: 
:ANoraneeyana Mahatho Maheeyana
:(Same as the Sanskrit Anoraneeyan mahathom
:.Aprameyana AadisidaLeyshodha ...
YASHODA PLAYED WITH THE IMMEASURABLE (Aprameya)
 
Paramapurushana Para Vaasudevana
Same as the Sanskrit paramapurusha and Paravaasudeve
YASHODA PLAYED WITH THE PARAMA PURUSHAN & PARAVAASUDEVAN

Purandara Vittalana AadisidaLeyshodha ...
YASHODA PLAYED WITH VITTALA OF PURANDARA
(a common name for Krishna in Maharashtra- the native State of Purandara
Dasa). PURANDARAHA IS ALSO NAME FOR VISHNU IN VISHNU SAHASRA NAMAM.
I don't know the origin of VITTALA. I have noticed that if you say VITTALA
VITTALA VITTALA... it sounds like a city in israel (TEL AVIV) .
