He is mantled in the pachyderma of the dark tusker;
He is Ekampan of lovely Kaanchi damasked with flowers;
He is easy of access to his servitors--whoever
He is the infinite One unknown to the celestials;
He is the Light of the Empyrean who enacts the dance
Whilst the earth-born and the heaven-dwellers adore Him;
His names are legion;
He is of Perumpatra-p-Puliyur.
Unlived indeed are the days unspent in His praise.
