Ramayana Agaval-Sundara Kandam(Tamil)


Ramayana Agaval-Sundara  Kandam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(I came across this in an old book.  This is a saummarised form of Sundara Kandam in the form of a Tamil poem style called Agaval which is a blank poetry. I am sure that reading this would give the effect   of reading  Sundara kandam of Ramayana.)


Devi Darisanam
1.Malai methu yeriya maruthi yethire,
Alai choozh Ilangai ani nagar nokki,
Vaal visai thezhundhu, vaan vazhi kondu,
Kaal visai thegi, kadali mainakam,
Varuvurai koori, Surasai  vaazhtha,
Tharai yennum chayai vizhuppol.
Vaai vazhi pukundhu  neel kudal pidungi,
Yezhundhu, then disai ilangayir paainthu.
Mayangi iravu ezhundhu, mathil arugu yeithi,
Thadutha vilangini thannuyir vaangi,

NIndra asoka vanatht chendru,

Seeing of the Goddess

Hanuman who climbed on to the mountain,
Facing the Sri Lanka surrounded by waves of the sea,
Lifted his tail , got up and through the path of the sky,
Travelled , with Mainaka , the sea mountain greeting him,
With Surasa  greeting him  With Thara  ,
Which is a shadow pulling   him ,
Entered through the mouth, uprooted the long liver,
Got up., entered the Lanka which was  in the south,
Slept , got up at night, reached near  the boundary wall,
Killed the Lankini   who tried to stop him,
Entered the city, roamed all round the town,
Reached the  place where heroes sleep,
Saw Ravana who was sleeping, controlled his anger,
Was   attracted by the sleeping Mandodhari,
But concluded  that she is not the Goddess ,
And entered  the near by Asoka vana ,
Saw  the goddess   with a very thin hip,
Became fully happy and sat there in hiding.

Asoka vanam azhithal

Ninaithangu anuman nedu marathiruppa,
Thunaintha kadhalil thuyilaa tharakkan,
Vandhu janaki malar adi veezhndhu,
Nondu pugalanonaal cheeralum,
Meendu poyapin, midaintha varakkiyar,
Neenda thuyil kola , neerizhai varunthi,
EEnduyir viduven yendru ayal poga,
Kanda anumanum karuthodu yenni,
Yiraman thoothuvan ingu vandhen , ini,
Virravum thuyaram viduthi  neeyingu,
Kai adayalavum katturai palavum ,
Meyyura unarthiyathu undu yena vilmbi,
Irai magan aazhi yeethalum vaangi,
POrai yinu vanthu pugazhndhu mei thalirnthu ,
Nirai thara  vaazhthi, urai pala  nigazthi ,
Than viral aazhiyodu thani mozhi pala thara,
Vaangi vandhu yeguthal therippan,
OOngiya pozhil azhindu ulavinan peyarnthe.

Destroying  Asoka Vana
Thoughtfully when Hanuman  was sitting on a tall tree,
The Asura  caught in very great passion and love,
Came and fell at the  flower like feet of Janaki,
Talked to her in pain, shouted at her to scare her,
And after he returned , those Rakshasis  who became unfriendly,
Entered in to a long sleep  and that great lady getting sad,
Deciding to take her life away  was going  somewhere else ,
And seeing that  Hanuman  entered in to great thought,
And told her that I , who am the emissary of Rama  has come here,
And so leave out all your sorrow  and showed,
Her  the symbol of hand of Rama  and told her many truths,
About several incidents and took from her , the brooch to show the son of God,
And  was praised by her who was weak  , in a great manner,
And he also wished her well and talked to her of many things,
Gave her the  ring of Rama  and also told her of many private news,
And took leave  of her promising to come back,
And from there  wandered  here and there after destroying that growing garden.

Ravananai kanuthal
Ongu pozhil azhitha veengu thol anuman,
Naduvil irunthathor  sudar mani mandapam,
Verodum pidungi veesa vilangai,
OOr orungu azhiya ulayum kalai,
Cholai kavalar  thondralukku uraippa,
Adutha kinkarar  neer pidithu konargena,
Padayodu vantha palarayum kondru,
Kadai neel  thorana kambam thiruppa,
Maamam piragadathan  mainthan vemazhal ,
Poliyar  sambu mali nerungi ,
Aaviyai viduthalum arakkan mainthan ,
Koviya lakkan meva   vavanai,
Tharai pada varaithu kandu cherukki ,
Mega  nadhan  vembor purinthu ,
Soka meythiyum pasam veesi,
Pinithu kodu poi peyaraa vendanu,
KKu anitha viduppava anumanum,
Thuninthu  yethir irundhann choozchi kurithe.

Meeting with Ravana
After  destroying the tall growing forest , Hanuman,
Uprooted a  shining  meeting hall  and threw it ,
And due to that the  city of Lanka   was flustered,
And  when the security went and informed about  ,
What happened    to  the great king,
He asked Kinkaras to go with a great army,
And  asked them , to  catch and bring him,
And hanuman killed   all of them,
With a very huge  pillar which was decorated,
And SAmbu mali who was the son   of,
The uncle of Ravana called bragadatta neared him,
And that son of the Rakshasa left his soul,
And when Akshaya , the son of Ravana came to the war,
Hanuman  rubbed him on the floor  and made him in to a paste,
And Mega Nadha came   and waged a very great war,
And when he  send the  Pasa,tied Hanuman up,
And  took him in front  of the king ,
And Hanuman with great courage and faced him.

Kadar karai charthal
Thuninthu  yethir  irunthavan chuddar mugha nokki,
Panithi nee  yevan yena  param chudarano,
Nevalena anuman yenbenayavan,
Devi  seethayai naadi then disai ,
Vandha valiyin mainthan angadhan,
Senayil oruvan yendru mena vil,
Valiyin  madivu mathum  chala ,
Uraithalum kolai kurithu   ullathai veedanan,
Maruppa  valin van thee  koluvath,
Thooyaval  kar paar chudaathum  kulirthalum,
Paaya  ilangai  pathara   chuttu,
Vanthu adi vanangi  vada disai thavi,
Munthu mainakam  mugamanodu painthu,
Nattor kiraiviyinanamai   koori,
Meendu Madhu vanam   theendi vanthu iraiyadi
Poondellam chollalum puravalan macizh kodu,
Senayodu yaavarum  chernthaar,
Aanathen karum kadalakan karai yagathe.

Reaching   the sea shore.

Seeing the shining face  of one who faced him  boldly,
Ravana asked him    Please  tell me who you are,
Are the fire God, tell me , He told , I am hanuman,
Who has come to the southern side in search of Sita  , and am,
One of the members   of the great army of Angadha,
Who is the son of Vali and also told him in detail about,
The death of Vali, and when Hanuman was sentenced   to die,
Vibheeshana denied and his tail   was  set on fire instead,
And due to the virtue of the holy lady, the fire did not hurt him,
And he jumped all over Lanka and completely  burnt it,
Went and saluted her feet, jumped towards north,
On the way meeting the  Mainaka mountain,
Told those of his friends , the welfare of the goddess,
Visited Madhuvana on the way, reached,
The feet of the lord and told all news and that king,
Along with the army  speedily  reached the shores of southern black sea.






Phala Sruthi of Devi Gadkamala stotram


Phala Sruthi of Devi Gadkamala stotram

Translated  by
P.R.Ramachander

(In my earlier posting of my translation   of the Devi Gadkamala stotra, the phala  Sruthi has unfortunately been left out. I am now posting it separately. I have taken the text from
                                                                                                                           

Phala sruthi
1.Esha vidhyaa Maha sidhi dhayini smrithi mathratha,
Agni vatha maha kshobhe raja rashtrasya viplave

2.Luntane thaskara bhaye , sangrame , salilaplave,
SAmudhra yana vikshobhe, Bhootha prethathike bhaye

3.Apasmara jwara vyadhi mruthyu kshamadhi jebhye,
Sakini, poothana, yaksha raksha , khooshmandaje bhaye ,

4.Mithra bhedhe , graha bhaye  , vyasane vyabhicharike,
Anyeshwapi cha dhosheshu Mala manthram smaren nara

5.THadrusam gadgam aapnothi yena hastha sthithenavai,
Ashta dasa maha dweepa samang bhoktha  bhavishyathi.

6.SArvopadrava nirmuktha , saakshgath chiva mayo bhaveth,
AApath kale nithya poojaam vistharath karthum aarabheth.

AS soon as one remembers her who is one who gives great sidhis(Occult powers),
The disturbance due to fire and wind, the revolution in the king’s kingdom,
The fear of plunderers and thieves, the fear of war, flood,
The upturning of an ocean ship, the fear of devils and ghosts,
The fear of epilepsy, fever , disease and emancipation,
The fear of ghosts like Sakini , poothana, Yaksha,Khooshmanda and also Rakshasa,
The fear of losing friends, the fear of planets, fear of sorrow and prostitution,
And many  other such draw backs would vanish and  that man who remembers  the mala manthra,
Would  make his own   a type  of sword for him  to  hold in his hands,
And he would become the   enjoyer  of the eighty great islands.
He would get rid of all his problems and would be filled with the spirit of real Shiva.
But during the times of danger he should start  to do her worship in detail.

7.Yeka varam japa dhyanam , sarva pooja phalam labeth,
Navavarana deveenaam Lalithaya  mahoujana,

By chanting and meditating on it for a week ,
The  good effect of  worship of  the Goddess  Lalitha of Navavarana,(nine surrounding circles) i
Would be obtained  by the great people

8.Yekathra gananaa roopo Veda Vedanga gochara,
SArvagamarahasyartha smaranath papa nasii.

By meditating in one place  on her form,
Which is not even visible   to Vedas and Vedangas
And which is the secret meaning  of all  agamas,
Al the sins committed   would  be destroyed.

9.Lalithaaya mahesanyaa malaa vidhyaa maheeyasi,
Nara vasyam narendraanaam vasyam naree va  sankaram

By  learning this garland  of knowledge about the mighty Lalitha,
We would be able to attract  , men, kings  , ladies or Lord Shiva.

10.Animadhi gunaiswaryai ranjanam papa banjanam,
Thathadha aavaranasyaabhi devatha brundha manthrakam

It would lead you to mastery of occult powers like Anima,
Destroy  all your sins like   the chants of worship,
Of various Gods in the   Nava  avaranas.

11.Mala manthram paramam guhyam param dhama  prakeerthitham,
Shakthi maalaa Pancha dasyaa chiva maalaa chathaadrusi

This Mala manthra   is very secret , and has been appreciated by  Lord Vishnu
And the garland of Shakthi  has fifty stanzas and that of Shiva has  forty stanzas.

12.Thasmad gopyatharadropyam rahasyam bhakthi mukthidham.

And so this has  been kept as very secret and would lead to devotion and salvation

Ithi sree  Vamakeswara thanthre  Uma Maheswara samvade ,
Devi Gadkamala stotram sampoornam.

Thus ends the Devo Gadkamala stotram which  occurs in Vamakeswara thanthra  in the discussion between Lord Shiva and Goddess Uma.

Ayyappa , I surrender to you , Ayyappa  I surrender  to you God,
Oh Lord  of Sabari mountains , Ayyappa I surrender  to  you God.

After  observing penance of Mandalam,
After chanting prayers  with one lakh letters .
Carrying  the  burden of sins and blessings , and the Bundle  of two parts ,
We are   coming to   step on the  golden mountain   (Ayyappa, …)

After  taking    bath in River Pampa,
After waking up the  parrot of temple sleeping in me,
With an empty drum , dancing in Petta   and also singing ,
We are coming   to step on the ladder  of eighteen steps.  (Ayyappa..)

In the divine door of the sanctum   sanctorum,
When mountains of camphor  salute and  melt down,
We are coming  to become   the black Thulasi( ocimum )leaves,
Which kiss of  the divine feet which shines like Padmaraga stones.  (Ayyappa..)

Oh Golden Ayyappa, I surrender, I surrender, I surrender,
Oh Ayyappa , I surrender , I surrender , Oh golden Ayyappa

Carrying the two section bundle, when we get out of our home ,
The  bunch of flowers  of devotion start  opening.

In the   call “ Oh God  Ayyappa I surrender to you”,
The essence of this world gets ready  as the divine music.

After   song and   dance   in the  temple of Erumeli  ,
All Ayyappas depart   with great unity.

The God Vaavar   is saluted properly and ,
The garden forest (poongavanam ) opens the flower  of past glory.

After  singing the story of  Hari and hara, when we reach the canal  of Perur(Perurthodu),
The  son oh Harihara    would bless  us.

When we see  the  relations at Kalahati,
Then we can hear song of tides   from Azhutha  river.

When we spread the bed sheet and lie down in shore of Azhutha,
The flowers of Thulasi  would bloom in the garden of the soul.

After  taking bath  at the dawn , we walk taking the stone ,
Cross the   Azhutha hill   and walk further.

When  we move   singing the brother  of elephant faced God,
The hill where stone(Kallidaam kunnu)  has to be put nears

After  we cross the Azhutha downs and cross  kari ilam canal ,
The Ayyappas would reach  the door  of Karimala.

For not getting the feet knocked while climbing Karimala ,
We would sing the song of the son of enemy of Manmatha.

When we sing songs about him who lived in Pandalam,
We would cross   the Pamba river  and become ecstasic.

We should take bath in the  clear   water of the cool waves of Pamba,
And should forget   all our sorrows.

When with happiness we do food charity and proceed further  ,
We can see the lord’s Pamba light at a   distance.
