Om Namo Venkatesaya
Vinnapalu Vinavaley Vintha Vinthalu
Thella Varay Jhamekkay Devathalu Munulu
Garuda Kinnara Yaksha Kaminulu Gamulai
Ponkapu Seshadulu Tumburu Naradadulu
Annamacharya composed and sang Sankirtanas right from the first service of the day to the last service at night to Lord Venkateswara in Tirumala Temple. Even today, this tradition is being continued in Tirumala Temple. The opening service to the Lord Venkateswara starts with a Melukolupu Sankirtana (Wake up composition) of Annamacharya followed by Suprabhatham and the closing service at night with a Jolapata (lullabye) of Annamacharya during Ekantha Seva
Vinnapaalu Vina Valey Vintha Vinthalu is one of the many Melukolupu Sakirtanas rendered by Annamacharya to Lord Venkateswara. In this composition, Annamcharya sang melodiouly to wake up the Lord Venkateswara to perform the duty of attending to His devotees' requests.
Annamacharya asks the Lord to slowly open His lotus eye lids and look at the sages wo are waiting for Him, Yaksha and Kinnera women singing in a state of bliss, and Adisesha, Brahma, Narada, Tumbura and others who are rowed at His feet. Annamacharya asks Venkateswara to open His eyes, look at Alamelu Manga and listen to the appeals of all His devotees.
