P: I want (vENDum) to offer my services/worship (sEvikka) at cidambaram, my master (ayyA)!

 

A: I want to (vENDum) behold (kaNDu) and worship (sEvikka) at the sanctum sanctorum (sannidhi) of the god (dEvan) of gods (dEvAdi), the divine (tiru) idol (mUrtiyAm) that I have heard is enshrined in cidambaram.

 

C: (I want to behold and worship) the Lord of black bull (kArAnai) along with the elephant (mA)-faced (mukhattu) one with five (aindu) arms (karattAnai), the lord (rAyanai) who grants us our wishes (karpaka), the lord with the three (mu) emblems (kuRiyAnai); as well as the one with a flag/banner (koDiyAnai) with a rooster (SEval) on it who liberated (mITkum) the gods (dEvar) from their imprisonment (Sirai) who resides (vAzh) outside the limits (ellai vASal) of the great and prosperous (SirAr) city (pati) of puliyUr.

 

After a bath (mUzhgi) in the beautiful (SingAramAna) temple tank (Siva gangaiyil), walking (vandu) in front (munbAgavE) of the sanctum (sannidhi) of pArvati (SivakAmi), and appropriately (pAngAgavE) perambulating (pradakshiNamum Seidu) around the shrines, (I want to behold and worship the lord of cidambaram) as other devotees (bhaktargaL), learned mystics (siddhargaL) and those involved in temple services (paNiviDaiyOr) offer worship (tozha)

 

(I want to behold and worship) the divine (tiru) main deity (mUlattAnai) who is praised (paravum) by learned and wise men (ciTTar), the mighty (pEr) lord of the open space (ambalattAnai) called (ennum) 'consciousness' (ciTRambalam), the resident (vANanai) of the skies (ambala) praised (pugazh) in all eight (ashTa) directions (dikkum), THE God (ANDavanai), the lord (rAyanai), the master of tANDava in cidambaram (tillai)!

 

I want to experience the vision (dariSanamum) of the joyous (nalla) festivities (tiruvizhA), the temple chariot (tErum) that is so tall, it looks as if it is beholding the skies (vAnittiru), the four (nAngum) beautiful (nar) gate/entrance towers (gOpuram) that are famous (pugazh) all over (engumE) this land (nADu), the paths/roads (vIdiyum) trod (vaLar) by the original three thousand (muvvAyiravar) dIkshitars of cidambaram (tillai), the holy water (tirumanjanamum) [7] in the month of mArgazhi [8] (and worship the Lord in cidambaram).

 

 

Pallavi:
