Pidiyathan Uruvumai


Note: The proper pronunciation of sandhi (joining) between "uru" and "umai" forming the second word, "uruvumai," is "v" and not "g." As is often the case in singing, short vowels are elongated at the end of some words or lines. For more information on sandhi and a guide for singing see our singing guide

    பிடியதன் உருவுமை கொளமிகு கரியது
    வடிகொடு தனதடி வழிபடும் அவரிடர்
    கடி கணபதிவர அருளினன் மிகுகொடை
    வடிவினர் பயில்வலி வலமுறை இறையே!

    KadigaNa padhivara varulinan migukodai
    Vadivinar payilvali valamurai yiraiyey!

    Sadhana is performing the same discipline over and over and over again. Just as we methodically exercise the physical body to build up its muscles, we perform spiritual disciplines over and over again to strengthen our spiritual, inner bodies.
