Saravana Bhava Yenum
By Papanasam Shivan
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Ragam Shanumuga Priya
Saravana bhava enum tirumandiram tannai
sada japi yen naavE
Puram yeritha paraman netrikannil uditha
Boda swaroopan porpaadum tannai panindu
Maanmisai kidaundhu uzhal piravi piniyai theerkkum,
Mayai agala per inba neriyil cherkkum,
Than mathi nigar kuzhal karunai nilavu,
Mizhum shanmuga Priya sadakshara paavana.
Always chant the divine Manthra,
"Saravana Bhabva", Oh my mind.
After saluting the golden feet of the God with a form of conscience,
Born from the forehead eye of the divine one who burnt the three cities.
That which drives away that illusion that,
Puts an end to the disease of birth,
Which makes us to be born in earth and suffer,
And makes us merge with the divine joy,
That mercy which is like the light of the cool moon,
That Shanumuga who likes the holy six lettered manthra.
