    Ulakelaam unarn thoathar kariyavan
    nilavu laaviya neermali vae'niyan

    Translation

    He who is rare to be comprehended
    And expressed in words by all the worlds;
    In His crest rest the crescent and the flood;
    Limitless is His effulgence;
    He dances in the Ambalam.
    We hail and adore His ankleted flower-feet.

    The One, Who is difficult for the world to experience and explore out !
    The One with moon wandering, water brimming Hair !
    Illuminant beyond any scales (to measure) !
    Dances in the common (thirucciRRambalam hall) !
    His Floral cilambu ornamented Feet, (we) hail, salute !!
