Surely, DRS and Ananth, when kirubAharan and baTmiNI meet, they're not going to discuss transliteration schemes... :)

" guru lEkayeTuvaNTi guNiki teliyaka pOdu "

In the book Tyagaraja Saraswata Sarvaswam, this song is given slightly differently which obviates the difficulty of two negatives:

gurulEka eTuvamTi guNiki teliyagabOdu

The phrase teliyagabOdu can mean: teliyaga = to understand, bOdu = not possible, with only one negative.

In his book, "samgIta saurabhamu ", Dr S Pinakapani also gives the same pATham for this song.

The whole pallavi will now mean: Without a preceptor, ie without the guidance and compassion of an enlightened guru, one cannot learn the truth about Para Brahma. I submit that this blends well with the meaning of the rest of the song.

Rigapada,
Thanks for your clarification. As there is a long gap, I thought probably you did not see my post.
