Kannunjal Aadinaal Kanchana Malai
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
(These Songs are sung when the bride and groom swing for the first time on a decorated swing.)
Raga Aananda Bhairavi
Kannunjal Adinal Kanchana Malai
1. Ponnunjal mel poorithu,
Iswaranaridathil, Adi Asayum,
2. Uttami Pettha Kumari,
Bhakthargal papa samhari,
Padma mugha oyyari
3. Asaindhu Sangiliyada,
Usandu Urvashi pada,
Isaindhu Thalangal poda,
Meenakshi Priyal Kondada
Swung she, our Garland of Gold,
For the first time,
1. In the golden swing,
And happy she became.
Ecstasic in the golden Swing,
And in love with the Lord of all.
2. Daughter of great ma,
Gaily made up to the toe,
Remover of sins of devotees,
The lotus girl who is haughty.
3. With her movements pretty,
Swung the chains hither and thither,
From the sky sang the great Urvashi,
And all people around kept the beats,
With Our darling Meenakshi's praise.
