Ragam Sri Ranjini
Kana Vendamo , iru kannirukkum podinile,
Vinnuyar gopuram Kana Vendamo
Veenil ulagai chuthi chuthi vandhaal ,
Medhini pothrum Chidambara nadanai
1,Vaiyathile karu ppayul kidandhu
Ullam naiya piravamal,iyan thirunadam
2.Ottai chadalam odunga vethu yelumbu kootil,
Irundhu ottam pididikku mun kana vendamo.
Should I not see, before I lose my eyes,
Should I not see the tower as high as the sky
Instead of wandering aimlessly in the world
Should I not see Lord of Chidambaram praised by the world
1.Instead of taking a birth painful to the mind,
Lying in the womb in the abdomen,
Should I not see the divine dance of the lord.
2.Should I not see the Lord before the soul,
Before the soul leaves the body with holes
Leaving only the cage made of bones.
