Pallavi

Swung she, our Garland of Gold,

For the first time,

 

Charanam

 

1.In the golden swing,

And happy she became.

Ecstasic In the golden Swing,

And in love with the Lord of all .

 

2.Daughter of great ma,

Gaily made up to the toe,

Remover of sins of devotees,

The lotus girl who is haughty.

3.With her movements pretty,

Swung the chains hither and thither,

From the sky sang the great Urvashi,

And all people around kept the beats,

With Our darling Meenakshi s praise
