Sharavana bhava guha
Thanjavur Shankara Iyer
Saravanabhava guha , shanmuga ,
Thiruarul puriya vaa vaa
Maruvum valli devayanai manala,
Karunai mazhai pozhiya va dayala
Kundru thorum aadum kumarane vaa,
Kuraigal theerthida viraivinil nee vaa,
Endrum inbam tharum thamizh isaikka va,
Irangi engalukku jnanam thazhaikka vaa.
Oh Guha born out of Saravana pond, Oh six faced one,
Please come , come to shower your grace
Oh husband of the loving Valli and Devayana,
Oh merciful one come to shower the rain of mercy.
Oh Kumara who dances on each and every hill, please come,
Please come to fulfill all our wants ,
Please come to sing Thamizh which daily gives pleasure,
Please take pity on us and come to increase our wisdom.
