Ayyappa Bhajan Songs

Ayyappa Bhajan Songs
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[The worship of Ayyappa has spread all over the world and lakhs of devotees join Ayyappa Vilakku, Sastha Preethi and Ayyappa Bhajans conducted by Ayyappa devotees. This is the compilation of Ayyappa Bhajan Songs which were compiled by Mrs. Priya Vardheesh for the Ayyappa Bhajans in her home at Chicago. Though majority of the songs are in Tamil, there are are also Slokas in Sanskrit and songs in Malayalam and Telugu. My deep sense of gratitude to Mrs. Priya Vardhish and to Sri T. R. Chandra Shekar who had sent this to me. May Lord Ayyappa bless them.]

1. Ayyappa Kavacham (Tamil)
[Armour to Ayyappa]

Kappu (Protection)

Harihara puthranai, aananda roopanai,
Iru moorthi maindanai, aaru mugan thambiyai,
Sabari gireesanai, Santha swaroopanai,
Dinam dinam pothi paninthiduvome.
Ayyappa devan kavacham idhanai,
Anu thinam solla allalgal ozhiyum,
Thinam thinam thuthikka theerum vinaigal yellam,
Nadiya porulam nalamum varume.

We would every day praise and salute,
The son of Shiva and Vishnu, the personification of joy,
The son of two Gods, The son of six faced Subrahmanya,
The Lord of Sabari Mountain and the God who is peaceful.
If this armour of God Ayyappa,
Is recited daily, all problems would get solved,
Day by day as it is read all results of bad karma would get destroyed,
And Whatever we desire, we would get.

Lighting of camphor to the God,
All the Ayyappas will join together,
And go in search of their lord,
They would go to the Sabari Mountain

5. Kaarthigai Maatham Maalai anindhu
Neerthiyaagave Viradhamirundhu
Paartha saarathiyin Maindhane unai

They would wear the rosary in November - December,
After doing proper penance in a good manner,
After doing penance to see you,

Carrying the two section bundle and after reaching Yerumeli.
With single mind doing the pettai dance there,
After saluting your dear friend Vaavar,
We would climb the Mountain of grace of our lord.

5. Azhuthai Eetram Eerum Pothu

Then we would be climbing the slope at Azhuthai,
We would go from there after praying the son of Hari and Hara,
And Lord riding on a big tiger would come,
To show us our way,
The climb of Karimalai is difficult, very difficult,
And the ocean of mercy also will come to help us,
And when the downward path in Karimalai starts,
We would see the holy river of Pambai

6. Gangai nathi pol punniya nathiyaam Pambaiyil Neeraadi
Sankjaran Maganai Kumbiduvaar Sangadamindri Eeriduvaar

Kaalamellam Namakke Arul Kaavalanaai Irruppaar

After taking bath in the sacred river Pambai which is similar to Ganges,
They would salute the son of Lord Siva and without problem again climb up,
And the son of Siva also will climb with us on Neeli Mala,
And he would be the divine help for all time to come.

Deha balam thaa Paada balam thaa
Deha balam thaa Paada balam thaa (lower tone)

Give us strength of the body, Give strength for our feet,
Give us strength of the body, Give strength for our feet,

He would come to the Sabari Peeta,
And salute the mother Sabari
And debut ones would put an arrow.
On the Saram Kuthi banyan tree.

Pathinettu padi meethu Eeriduvaar
Gathi endru avarai Saranadaivaar
Mathi mugam Kannde Mayangiduvaar
Ayyanai thuthikkaiyile
Thannaiye marandhiduvaar

They would then climb on the eighteen steps
And would surrender to him saying he is our protection,
And then they would get charmed by seeing his moon like face,
And when they are praying that Lord,
They would forget about themselves.
