Ardha Naeerswaram Aradhayami Sathatham
By Muthuswami Deekshithar
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Ardha naeerswaram aradhayami sathatham
Athri brugu vasishtadhi MUni vrunda vanditham sri
Ardha yama alankara visesham prabhavam,
Adha narreswari Priya karam.
Nagendra mani bhooshitham, nandi thuraga rohitham,
Sri Guru guha poojitham, kumuda Kriya raganutham,
Agamadhi sannutham, Anantha Veda goshitham,
Amaresadhi sevitham aarakthavarna shobitham.
I always worship Ardha Nareeswara, who was saluted by
The Group of saints like Athri, Brugu and Vasishta.
The special decoration at midnight is powerful,
And is liked by Ardha Nareswari.
He wears the serpent stone, rides on the bull Nandi,
He is worshipped by Subrahmanya, He is praised by Raga Kumuda Kriya,
He is praised by Agamas and extolled by Vedas,
He is served by Indra and shines in his red colour.
