Venkataachalapati PraNati

From: K. Sadananda (

I think I had my share of questions.  I want to share something else now.

Yesterday after I recd. books of Shree Ananta Rangaachaar - I was 
looking at my collections and I found unpublished work of my father 
-Shreeman Kuntimaddi Seshacharlu on  Venkatachalapati PraNati. This 
is a small book of Venkateswara sthuti - 45 sloka-s. I was pleasantly 
surprised to read in the introduction and in one of the sloka-s. If I 
can translate the telugu part- He wrote -

" Last June 1990, Shreeman N.S Ananta Rangaacharlu from Bangalore 
asked me if there are any new works on Shree Venkateswara Stuti - Is 
there any thing that you have written recently - I said I did not 
write any - but he motivated me to write this - started on 26 June 
and finished on 28th, 1990 .... and Let him hear this composition"

There are 45 slokas - of these the 42nd one the sloka reads

  chaaryanumatena sheshhadaasena
   venkaTa dharaNiipatiH
   aalekhaya damuuni paThita doshhaj~naaH||

   ananta rangaacharya anumatena seshadaasena amuuni padyaani vennkaTa 
dharanii dharapateH
    aalekhayat|  doshhaj~naaH paTita|

  According to the wishes of Shree Ananta Rangachaarya, Lord 
Venkateswara has propelled this Seshadaasa to compose these poems.  I 
hope these will be read by the pandits ( doshhaj~naaH - who know the 
right from wrong).

We just heard the telephone lectures of Shree Ananta Rangachar.  I am 
pleasantly surprised that my father knew him well.  Additional 
motivation for me to go and prostrate at the feet of the achaarya 
when I visit Bangalore next time.  I would like to post slowly 
sloka-s from this Venkateswara praNati along with the meaning on the 
list.  I am also slowly translating another small book of my father 
on VishishhTadvaita and post bit by bit from this book also.

Hari OM!
