Aarumo aaval , aarumuganai neril kandu

Yeru mayil yerikundru thorumnindru aadidum,

Perum pugazhum terindum, avan perazhagai parugamal

 

Charanam

 

Jnana guru paran deenarkku arulguhan , vanavarum thozhum Ananda vaibhogan,

Kana kidaikkumo kurudar killamal arpudha darisanam karpanai cheydhaal mattum.

 

English translation

 

Pallavi

 

Would our wish be ever satisfied,

By seeing Lord Subrahmanya in person

 

Anupallavi

 

Will our wish be ever satisfied by drinking the great beauty,

Of him who rides on a peacock , and dances on all hill tops,

And knowing well his name and fame.

 

Charanam

 

Oh the teacher of great wisdom, The Guha who blesses the down trodden,

Oh the Joyous god who is even saluted by the devas,

Would it be possible to see yourwonderful form,

Except by the blind , by imagination in the mindís eye.
