Where have you been searching for Me?I do not dwell in the temple or ashram,I dwell in your heart.I cannot be found in rituals and flowers,Nor in chants and austerities.I don’t live in houses nor do I live in forests.My residence is your heart alone!O Love! Where have you been searching for me?From the temple of Guruvayoor up to the temple of Badrinath you have been looking for me,Don’t you know that I am not to be found in temples or holy rivers?All through your journey, I was walking beside you.In fact I have always lived in the temple of your heartIn the form of Vanamali!O Love! Where have you been searching for Me?Priye evide thedunni, evide thedunnni,Ambalathilla jaan ashramathilla jaan,Jan ninte hridayathil vasikkunnu,Poojayil illa jaan,Pushpathil illa jaan,Japathil illa jaan,Tapasil illa jaan,Grihathil illa jaan,Vanathil illa jaan,Jaan ninte hridayathil vasikunnuPriye! Krishna priye! Krishna priye!Guruvayoor ambalathil, Badarikashramam vare,Nee enne thedi nadannuvallo,Kshetrathil alla jaan, theerthathil alla jaan,Jaan ninte koode nadannirunnu.Nin mano mandirathil vasikkunnu,Vanamali rupathil thilangunnuPriye evide thedunni, evide thedunnni, evide thedduni!
