To the primeval power  who is the mother , endless  crores of auspiciousness,
To  my goddess  who shines  inside me  auspiciousness.

1.Auspeciousness  to the one with divine taste   who fulfills all desires,
Due to the tender sensation of my never melting mind  melting  before  you.

Charukatha   jnanam  poothu thazhaithu  inba  kaniyai  kaana

Due  to  the flow  of river like  tears  , which earlier has  not flowed

3.Parukatha   madhura thenai   paruginen   payan pethene  ,
Yeppirappum    yeitheno   iyarkayaana   sidhiyai.

3.I drank the honey which was  never drunk before and was benefitted,
Would not I get   my natural powers  in any of my births.

And made me free of inferior  nature   and  strength which never   weakens  ,

Ands my nature   is to melt   and merge   in devotion.

And also  gave greatness   several  great experiences and luck   to all those who sing it.

Nama keerthanam  pranathu  nadellam chezhikkavum

And became the  power which is the form of wisdom   which will cool down all.

Jnan deepamethi   yendrum  nama  geetham paaduvoom.

Reading the last paragraph it seems that translation is incomplete,at least by a word or two.

Only an extra word "and" was added. I have removed it now. The last stanza has only one line.
