Thanjavur Sankara Iyer
Ragam Sindhu BHairavi
Manathirkku ugandathu murugan roopam,
Maya yai neekuvathu avan thirunamam,
Dinamum kappathu avan kai vel,
Vinayai yum theerkkum Kadhir Vel
Ennum ennam yellam niraiverum,
Pannum poojayinaal phalan undagum,
Mannil naam padum thuyar theerum,
Maraa inbam manthinil cherum.
The form of Muruga is pleasing to the mind,
And his divine name is one that removes illusion.
The Vel in hand is the one that protects us daily,
And his shining Vel removes all Karma
All our thoughts would bear fruit,
The worship that we do would yield result,
All the sorrows that we suffer in this earth would go away,
And unchanging happiness will accumulate in our mind.
