Who is now swimming in the ocean of sorrow.

Of God with permanent form ,
Oh God Ayyappa , I surrender before you ,
With mercy give me the path to reach your divine presence

You should destroy our passions and greed,
Oh Lord wearing blue silk who has a pure body ,
Except you I do not have any other way.
