Kanakadasa (c 1509-1609 AD) belongs to the tradition of Haridasa literary movement which ushered in an era of devotional literature in Karnataka. He is one of the greatest saints Karnataka gave. Kannada transliteration of one of his devotional song is given below:
P: tallaNisadiru kaNDya tALu manavE uyallaranu salahuvanu idakE samshaya viLLa
1: beTTada tudiyalli huTTiruva vrkSaKKe kaTTEyanu kaTTi nIreredavaru yAru puTTisida swAmy tA hoNegAranAgiralu gaTyAgi salahuvanu idake samshayavilla
2: adaviyolagAduva mrugapakshigaligeLLa allalli AhAravithavaru yAro padeda jananiya teradi swamy honegEdagi bidade rakshipanidake sandehabeda
3: kaLLolage huTTiruva krimi kITagaLigE ella allalli AhAra viittavaru yAro pullalOcana kAgi nelayAdi kEshavanu ellaranu salahuvanu idakE samshayabeda
Meaning: Here composer Kanakadasa tells the mind not to get agitated because God is there to help and so there is no need for suspicion. In the forest there are so many trees, animals, insects – all of them get food, water from time to time. God is responsible for their living. Likewise God will take care of all of us. So, there is no need to worry.
