Description

One day a famous poet came to the court of Krishnadevaraya. He said to the King, “My lord! I have written a poem on the king Nannaya Vema. I had not found any poet who could understand its meaning. I came here thinking that there may be someone among the eight poets in your court who can reveal its meaning”.

Krishnadevaraya understood that the real intention of that poet is to prove that his poets are useless. Pretending that he did not know the intention of that poet, Krishanadevaraya asked him to recite the poem, so that one of his court-poets could give its meaning. Then the poet recited the following poem:
Rajanandana Raja Rajatmajulu saati
Talapa Nannaya Vema Dharanipathiki
Rajanandana Raja Rajatmajulu saati
Bhaava Bhava Bhoga satkala Bhaavamulanu
Bhaava Bhava Bhoga satkala Bhaavamulanu

Listening the poem carefully, the other poets such as Peddana began to think over its meaning. Krishnadevaraya, himself a poet and a pundit was also in doubt whether the poets in his court could explain the meaning of the poem or not.Then Ramakrishna got up from his seat and said, “My dear poet ! I have also composed a poem. I will now recite that poem, think over its meaning. In the meantime I will think over your poem and give the meaning. First listen to my poem”.
