1. Please come riding on a peacock.
Come with your vadi vel (long spear)
Give me comfort, suitability, fame,
Penance, ability, wealth and importance.
2. There are several devotees here,
Please give all of them freedom,
Oh end of the endless Vedas,
Oh end of Asuras, Oh Vadivela of the desired form.
3. Oh Meaning of Vedas, come,
Oh bravery, oh fire, come,
Oh Vadivel who dries the sea of worries,
Of all those who keep on worrying.
4. Oh relative who lives in Indra's capital,
Shower your grace, I surrender, surrender
Oh Subrahmanya, Oh Velava who is like a flame,
Which is angry and drives away all ills, I surrender.
5. In the temple called wisdom,
In your lap which is your grace,
Please come with a blazing Vel,
Please shower your grace so that,
The entire world gets a rich new life.
6. Oh Teacher, Oh son of Lord Parameshwara,
Oh flame which grows inside a cave,
Please give me a work and its result,
Oh commander of devas, I surrender, I surrender.
