Meaning in Tamil

என்றும் எளியோரின் துயர் துடைப்போனே

தொன்று தொட்டு புவியோர் உனைப் புகழ்வோரே

முப்புரமெரி அச்சிவனவனின் முழுமுதல் பாலனே

அசுரர்தம் அகந்தைதனை மென்றழித்தோனே

அச்சுறுத்தும் வலிமையுடன் மாயைதனை அழிப்போனே

அழலுடனே இதர இயற்கைதனின் ஆற்றல்தமை அணிந்தோனே

கருணை பொழிச்சாறு கன்னமதில் கசிந்துவரும் மதமொப்பதன்றோ

மறைகள் அமுதமெனப் பொழிந்திடும் உன் புகழதனை அடிபணிவேனே
