Amma Ravamma Thulasamma
By Saint Thyagaraja
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Amma Ravamma thulasamma,
Sathathamu padamule namminanamma
Nemmathini nee viha, parammulu osakudhuvu anusu,
Kamma vilthuni thandri kalanaina payadata.
Nee mrudhu thanuvanu kani nee parimalamu kani,
Nee mahathwamunu kani, neerajakshi,
THama rasa dala nethru Thyagarajani mithru prematho,
Siramunannu pettu kondata.
Mother, please come, oh mother Thulasi
Please take care of me,
For I always believe in your feet.
Knowing that you will grant peace here and in the heavens,
The father of the God of love, it seems would never leave your company.
Seeing your soft body, seeing the sweet smell of yours,
Seeing your greatness, Oh Goddess with lotus like eyes,
The God with eyes like lotus leaf,
Who is a friend of Thyagaraja,
Kept you with love on his head.
