From  the material  of
Sumithra Narasimhan , Karur

Translated  by
P.R.Ramachander


 (Here is a  summary of Sundara  Kandam in   simple but magnificient Tamil verse .It can easily be chanted  within two minutes. This is  in the collection of Stotras of  Smt.Sumithra  Narasimhan .She is a great devotee of The Karya Sidhi Anjaneyar  temple  , Situated in Nerur   which is near Karur. It is the  same place where  the Jeeva Samadhi  of  the great saint Sadashiva  Brahmendral is located. With an aim in popularizing this great  wealth of information, she had got it typed and freely distributing  to devotees. One such copy  reach me  in Bangalore. I was so captivated  that  I  translated it in to  English within one hour , contacted  Smt.Sumithra   to permit me to use  the on line platform to popularize  it.She not only  agreed but   told me  that  Karya Sidhi Vinayagar   would bless me .I am sure  that each and every one of you who reads  this  would be blessed  by the great Anjaneya  and all your   desires would be fulfilled.)

1.Ithai  dinamum padippavarkalukku kashtangal  chaduthilyil,
Marayum  , vethrikal viravil  odi varum.

1.Sufferings   would  speedily   vanish and  victory   would ,
Come running   to those   who read this daily.

2.Sundara kandam  yendru  peyar  cholluvaar,
Sukham  tharum  sorghum  yendru  karuthil  kolvar.

2.This book is called  Sundara Kandam,
And people say that  it would lead  us to heaven ,
Where    we get  pleasure.

3.Kanden Sithai  yena  kakuthanidam   chonna,
Karunai  migu  Rama bhakthan  aanjaneyar  perumai  ithu.

3.This story is  about the greatness  of Hanuman  the devotee of Rama,
Who told  Rama  “I have  seen   Sita.”

4.Anjanai maindan   alai kadal thandave,
Aayathamaki nindrar , Rama banam poalave ,
Rakshasar  manai nokki  Raja gambheerathodu,
Rama  dhoothanum virainthe   chendraar.

4.That  son of Anjana   stood ready  ,
To cross the sea, just like   an arrow of Rama,
That emissary of Rama  went  towards,
The home of the  Rakshasa  with Royal splendour.

5.Angadhanum Jambhavanum   anaithu vanarangalum,
Anbudan  vidai koduthu   vazhiyanuppinare  ,
Vaanavargal danavargal   varunaadhi devargal,
Vazhiyellam  nindru poo maari pozhinthanare.

5.Angadha  , Jambhavan   and all  other monkeys ,
Gave him leave to go with love   and bid him farewell,
And  devas , Dhanavas  , Devas like Varuna  ,
Stood all over the way   and showered flowers like  rain.

6.Mainaka Parvatham   Maruthiyai upacharithu  ,
Maruthiyum Mainakathai   trupthi cheithu,
Sirasiyai vethri kondu  , simhikayai vadham cheithu,
Saanthoshamai  samudhram thandi ILangai   chernthaar.

6.The Mainaka  mountain hospitably treated  Hanuman,
And Hanuman satisfied   that  Mainaka ,
And  then he won over  Sirasa, killed  Simhika,
And then with happiness  crossed  the ocean and reached Lanka.

7.Idukkaka  pesiya  Ilangayin  Devathayai,
Ida kayyal dandithavan idayathai kavarkiraan,
Azhakaana   ilangayil   Janakiyai  ,
Angum ingum thediye   Asoka  vanathil  kandaan,

7.He punished   with his  left hand the goddess  of Lanka  ,
 And   stole   the   heart of the Goddess,
And then searching    for   Sita here and there,
In the  pretty Lanka  , he saw her  in Asoka  forest.

8..Simshuba  marathadiyil Sri ramanai   dhyanam cheyyum,
Sita pirattiyai   kandu   chitham kalnginaar  ,
Ravanan vegunda   Rakshasiyar  Kalangida  ,
Vaidehi arandida   vanthaan thuyar  thudaikka.

8.He  was mentally upset   seeing  Lady  Sita ,
Sitting below a shimsubha tree   and meditating on Rama,
When Ravana  became angry  and made  the  Rakshasis upset  ,
And  seeing Vaidehi   scared , He came to   remove her sorrow.

9.Kanayaazhiyai koduthu  Jayaraman charitham cholli,
Choodamaniyai pethra Sundara Aanjaneyar,
Annayin kanner kandu  , arakkan mel kopam kondu,
Asoka vanam azhithu   angirunthavarai  ozhithaan.

9.That pretty Hanuman    gave  the signet  ring,
Told her  the story of victorious Rama  and got her hair brooch  from her,
And seeing her  tears   , he became very angry   on that Rakshasa,
And then destroyed  the Asoka  forest   and destroyed people who were there.

10.Brahmasthrathaal   pinaithitta  Anjaneeyar  ,
Pattabhiraman thaan  perumayai   yeduthuraikka ,
Vegunda Ilangai vendhan  , vayyungal  thee  valukkindraan,
Vaitha  neruppinaal   venthathe  Ilangai nagar.

10.When Hanuman was tied  by Brahmasthra  ,
And when he told Ravana the greatness  of Rama,
That king of Lanka who became angry  ,said, “light  fire to his  tail”,
And with the  fire lighted there  , the entire  city of Lanka was burnt.

11.Arakkanin aganthayai   azhithitta  anumaanum,
Annai janakiyidam   anumathi pethru  kondaan,
AAkaya  margathil   aanjaneyar   thaavi vandhaar  ,
Annai  kandu vita  aanandathil  mei maranthaar.

11.That Hanuman who destroyed  the pride of the Rakshasa,
Took  permission  to leave from mother  Janaki  ,
And that hanuman jumped   through the way of sky,
And in the joy of having seen the mother  forgot himself in joy.

12.AAraatha  sokathil  aazhnthiruntha  Ramanidam,
Kai koopi   kanden  Seethyai    yendraar,
Vaidehi  vai mozhiyai  adayaalamai  cholliya  ,
Chollin selvar  , Ramanidam   choodamaniyai  alithaar.

12.To the Rama   who was drowned  in unquenchable  sorrow,
He offered salutations and said  “I have seen Sita “,
After  telling   the proof   that  was orally   told by Sita,
That master  of words, gave the hair brooch to Rama.

13.Manam  kaninthu  maaruthiyai  maarbodu anaitha  Ramar,
Maithiliyai  chirai meetkka   maru kanam chithamaanaar,
AAzh kadalil   arpudamai   anai katti  padaikal  choozha ,
Anumanum ilakkuvanum  udan vara   pura pettar.

13.Rama  with  a melting mind  hugged Hanuman to his chest,
And immediately became ready  to free Sita from prison,
Built a wonderful Dam on the ocean and surrounded  by the army,
And accompanied by  Hanuman and Lakshmana  departed.

14.Azhithittan Ravananai , ozhithittan  Adharmathai,
Annai Sita  deviyai  chrai  meetu  adainthittan,
Ayothi chendru   Ramar   jegam  pugazha  aakshi  cheithar,
Avanai  saran adainthorkku     avan arul  yendrum undu.

14.He destroyed  Ravana  , Completely removed actions against Dharma,
Released   Sita    from prison and joined   with her ,
And Rama went to Ayodhya   and  with the praise  of world ruled,
And They who  surrender  to him  , His grace   would always be there.

15.Yengengu  Raghu Raman  keerthanamo   angellam,
Karam kuvithu , manam urugi  , neer chorinthu , aanadathil moozhgi,
Ketkum  paripoorna  Bhakthane, Sri Anjaneyar  unnai,
Panikindrom  , Pala murai unnai  panigindrom.

15Oh Hanuman who  with folded hands  , with a melting  mind  ,
Shedding tears   and drowning  in joy  hears  wherever   the   song of Rama  is sung,
Who is a  complete  devotee , we salute   you,
We   salute   you  again , again and again.
