Aarumo aaval , aarumuganai neril kandu
Yeru mayil yeri† kundru thorum† nindru aadidum,
Perum pugazhum terindum, avan perazhagai parugamal
Jnana guru paran deenarkku arul† guhan , vanavarum thozhum Ananda vaibhogan,
Kana kidaikkumo kurudar killamal arpudha darisanam karpanai cheydhaal mattum.
Would our wish be ever satisfied,
By seeing Lord Subrahmanya in person
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.
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 your† wonderful form,
Except by the blind , by imagination in the mindís eye.
