he has a black neck resembling the nīlam blue nelumbo flower.
has an eye on the beautiful forehead.
is holding a trident in his hand.
smears himself with the minute ashes of the burning ground.
one who has matted locks.
This may be taken as
as he is in ciṟṟampalam which is praised and worshipped with both hands by people of good conduct.
oh beautiful one!
bestow upon me your grace to worship with both hands your red feet wearing anklets.
we will speak about your pre-eminence.
blue nelumbo flowers.
