1.Anbaana Kamakshi Amma,
Kalai amaintha Kanchiyile un Arasangamaa?
Angusa , paasam, Karumbu vil, theenganai,
Oh Mother Kamakshi who loves all,
Are you ruling in Kanchipuram ruled by the arts,
Are goad , rope, sugarcane and the arrows of fire ,
The ones that helps to identify you?
2.Mannum, vinnum padaithaval neeye ,
Ingu manalil Shivalingam amaithaye,
Maamara nizhalil ongi nindraaye manam poal,
Sivanidam manam Kalanthaaye?
You are the one who created the earth and the sky ,
Did you not make Shiva linga in sand here,
Did you not stand very tall in the shade of mango tree,
And did not your mind merge with that of Lord Shiva.
3.Azhagu aanavam alai magal thuranthaal,
Then vadivayai izhanthu nin vaasalile vanthaal.
Kuzhanthai ullam kondaval neeye ,
Un kumkumathaal ingu ira kanithaye.
The daughter of the oceam leaving her pride and beauty,
Losther form and came ay your door steps,
You are the one who has a mind of the baby,
And did you not tell us to remain here by your kumkum.
