He is the Father adored and hailed
By rare tapaswis;
He is the Lord of the supernal lords.
He is Hara the Sustainer;
The celestials with nectar--the cure for ageing.
the great One is the billowy sea,
The earth-supporting mountain,
the stars of lucent rays,
the moving lights twain and all else also.
He is of Perumpatra-p-Puliyur.
Unlived indeed are the days unspent in His praise.
