Raga Sri Ranjini
Kanavilum kamala khazhalinai thanaye
Kanivudan thudhikka varam arul thaye.
Thanadu arivilladuyariya nilai perave,
Manamurugi isai malaralai thooviye
Vana kuyil inamum, vanambadiyum unadu adi ninaindhe ullam pongiye,
Dinakaran thoondave daiva geethangal Ghana nayamudane ganam pozhivadu pol.
Please give me boon mother to pray,
Even in my dream your lotus like feet.
For getting the lofty state of selfless feeling,
Please make me offer you the flowers of music
The clan of the koels of the sky and the nightingales,
Thinking about your feet and with emotions roused,
Similar to the raining of songs, sing the divine music,
Aroused by the Sun God, with expertise in music.
