    Translation

    The Lord who bestowed the ocean of milk to the boy who cried for milk,
    the Lord who bestowed the 'chakra' (discus) weapon to Vishnu,
    the Lord who dwells in Chidambaram,
    the town where the brahmins reciting the vedas live, the Lord who performs the cosmic dance -
    We say 'May you live long' to Him.

    The Hindu religion brings to us the gift of tolerance that allows for different stages of worship, different and personal expressions of devotion and even different Gods to guide our life on this Earth.
