In the following sweet, yet sublime soothing lullaby, Annamayya visualizes an enchanting scene with infant Ranganatha, another manifestation of Sri Mahavishnu floating on the broad expanse of blue water, lying on a tender green banyan leaf enjoying to his fill the ethereal bliss, as the cool breeze coming as it is from the gentle ripples seem carrying him forward gracefully towards the goaless goal. More or less this setting is a prototype of the mesmerizing spectacle of Balakrishna's enjoying bliss reclining on the banyan leaf after mahapralaya. A single recall of the myriad splendors of this scene was so enthralling to a western English poet that he desired to metamorphose himself into that Paramatma to drink in the ocean of bliss on and again till eternity. Listen to his rapturous yearning - "I should much wish like the Indian Vishnu to float about along an infinite ocean cradled in the flower of lotus and to wake once a million years  for a few minutes, just to know that I was going to sleep a million years more. Does this not reflect the power of intoxication of bliss? Hasn't he added lustre to the diamond? Would anyone improve upon this? It certainly registers his fervent longing for bliss in its infinitude, rather it serves as a sure index of a true seeker's genuine longing to merge himself into that Ananda parabrahma? Does distinction of east or west, past or present ever venture to surface on spiritual plane? Annamayya in his superb composition projects on the mental screen of the devotees, the infinite joy of Mahavishnu through a series of images deserving reverent attention. Listen to his composition.

GIST! : In the days of yore, the blissful infant Ranganatha lying the banyan leaf cradle enjoyed moving gracefully on the bosom of Cauvery river surging forward by the tiny ripples caused by the gentle, cool breeze. That lovely cradle rocked for and rear by the wavelets resembled the swinging by the slender, flowery hands of Mother, absorbed in singing lullaby melodiously. Behold that spectacular sight of Venkatesa with Sridevi in the cradle, formed by Adisesha and hung up in the cosmos from the topless space by the Vedas acting as chains.
