(Here is a great prayer to the universal mother who is the great power which activates everything by The great poet Subrahmanya Bharathi.)
1.Thannai maranthu sakala ulaginayum,
Manna nitham Kakkum Mahasakthi-Annai ,
Avale thunayendru anavaradam nenjam,
1,Forgetting herself completely that mighty Shakthi(power)
Protects all the worlds and those who rule them,
And it is pleasure not to lose our heart any time ,
Always thinking that she is our support.
2.Nenjathjil kavalai nithamum payirakki ,
Anji uyir vaazhthal ariyamai –thanjamendre ,
Vayyam yellam kakkum maha sakthi nallarulai,
Iyyamara pathal arivu.
2.It is ignorance to live greatly scared ,
After growing the crop of worries in the mind ,
And it is wise to catch hold without any doubt ,
The divine grace of the Great Shakthi who protects all the world.
3.Vaiyakathukku illai maname!.Ninakku nalam,
Cheyya karuthi ivai cheppuven –Poyyillai ,
Yellam purakkum irai namayum kakkumendra ,
Chollal azhiyum thuyar.
3.Not to the world, oh mind , I am telling this,
To you to do you Good-this is not a lie,
The word that the “ the God of all the places ,
Would also protect us”, would destroy your sorrow.
4.Yennir kadangamal yengum paranthanavai,
Vinnir chudarkindra meenaiyellam -panniyathor ,
SAkthiye nammai chamaitharhu kaan, noorandu,
Bakthiyudan vaazhum padikku.
4.That power which created the difficult to count stars ,
Wich are shining and spreading every where in the sky,
Has also created us so that we would live,
For a period of humdred years with devotion.
