Bharathi Devi


By Ambhujam Velayudam


Translated by

 P. R. Ramchander


Raga: Mohana Kalyani

Thala: Aadhi




Bharathui devi vanthiduvay, aaya kalaigal thandjiduvay,

Sharadhe veenayai meetituduvay, Saptha swara jalam kattiduvay




Odi unarndhida un arul illayel,

Medhiniyil pugal edhmma?

Nadam  isaithida naan marandalum,

Nee yen naavil nadam cheyya vendum amma

Naan mugan nayaki panivorkku arul dhayaki,

Aagamam pugazh Vani jegam mohana kalyani.


English translation



Oh Goddess Saraswathi please come and give us all known arts,

Oh Goddess Sarada , please play the Veena and show us the magic of  seven notes.



If you are grace is not there to approach and understand,

Where  is the place of protection in this world,

Even if I forget to play the  musical sound,

Oh mother you should come and dance on my toungue,

Oh consort of four headed  Brahma, Oh giver of grace to those who salute you,

Oh SAraswathi praised  by Vedas, Oh bewitcher  of the world, Oh doer of all that  is good.
