Gana nayagane thunaiyaguvan
Oothukadu Venkata Subba iyer
Gana nayagan thunai yaguvaan,
Gandharwa veda sangeetham pada
Phani raja kankana pani- Sankara,
Thanaya mangala karaka
AAdhara sruthi neengamale,
Anniyargal pani varamale,
Kedara ragam Gambheera ragam,
Ketta pinnar mayai ongamale
For singing the Gandharava Veda music,
The lord of music would help me.
He who wears the king of serpents as armlet,
Who does auspicious acts to son of Shiva.
Without the basic sruthi slipping away,
Not imitating the style of any other stranger,
The regal raga, the Kedara raga,
Once heard would remove all illusions.
