Karunai Cheyvaye Amma
By Neelakanda Sivan
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Sage Neelakanta Sivan was a great composer belonging to South Travancore and lived at the end of 19th century. Though a very great composer of Carnatic music Krithis, many people do not know about him. His Disciple Papanasam Sivan is however well known. www.carnaticcorner.com/articles/nilakanta_sivan.html as well as www.carnatica.net/neelakantasivan.htm give a detailed account of this composer and his Krithis. Though he is said to have composed over 2000 Krithis very few of them are now available.]

Karunai cheyvaye Amma nin

Aru marai nangum - perum pugazh ongum,
Porule, Mey thangum thiruvarul thengum,
Paraye, Thiruvadi pothi iru vinai noyathu mathi,
Saran perum thondargal thothi yarul umaye, yenai yaththi

Athiyandhamillatha chilaye, Othi munivar pugazhum paraye,
Poothi thigazhndha adiyar anaye, Kothila maniye,
Pathi mathi chadai konda chothiyenum neela kandar,
Meedhu oru pathiyil pendaam adhiye, nee gathi kandai.

English translation

Please shower your mercy, mother

That one whose great fame is sung by the four great Vedas,
That divine one which supports truth and is filled with grace,
Oh Uma, who cures the two great sufferings,
When your holy feet are worshipped, Please console me.

Oh statue which does not have end nor beginning,
Oh divine one whose fame is sung by learned sages,
Oh mother of those devotees who have realized God,
Oh gem without any blemish, Oh lady who occupies,
Half the body of the light called Neelakanta,
Who wears the crescent, Oh primeval one, only you know the future path.
