Venkuzhal Udi Varum Kanna Kanna
O Sai, You are Lord Krishna playing the flute. Your divine play happens through Your Maya. You are the primal source who ended the suffering of the helpless elephant Gajendra. Lord Sai, You are the protector of Kali age and You incarnate in every age. You are Krishna with dark complexion and lotus eyes.
The Carnatic Raga Hamsanandi has the swara "R1" in the ascending set of notes as well. Typically for the pitch, Nishad (7th) is used instead of Pancham (5th) or Madhyam (4th).
