I sing about the Lord of obstacles with one tusk,
Who is the darling son of Lord Shiva,
Who is saluted by Lord Subrahmanya always.
He who is decorated by the ear globe made of serpent gem,
Who is worshipped by experts on the new grammar,
Who is famous for blessing people engaged in,
Fire sacrifice , Yoga , Chanting, penance and meditation,
Who takes care of the entire world, Who with the ever present joy,
Graces us with thousands of Ragas of songs, with their thalam and import.
He who has a pretty moon like elephant face ,
Who is the son of the great goddess Tripurasundari,
Who fulfills the desires of the mind of devotees with worried face,
He who is pretty and fully enjoys music, who has spotless body,
He who has a pretty eyes and shines like billions of suns,
He who has the good character of distributing Vedas and all religious book and is a child,
He who is an expert in teaching Vedas and Vedanthas,
He who is saluted by Vyasa and other great sages, again and again.
