Mun Cheitha Thava Payane
By Oothukadu Venkatasubba Iyer
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Mun cheitha thava payane,
Mukthi tharum Madhavanai Bhakthi cheyya kidauthathu
It is due to the effect of penance done earlier,
That we are able to devote ourselves to Madhava, who gives salvation.
Munnoru kaladiyil moovulagam alanthon, ippo,
Moovulagum vaazha Ghana mazhai pozhinthon.
Punnagai chitharame pullin vai pilanthon-chinna,
Pullankuzhalai kondu yella ulagala,
Vallan ivanai pada Vaayaara-thenura
The one who measured the three worlds by three steps at an earlier time,
Created a rain of music so that the three worlds would live,
He who without breaking his smile tore the mouth of a bird,
Used the little flute for ruling all the worlds,
And to sing this strong one by our mouth with dripping of honey.
