காரநம் கேட்டு வாடி (ஸகி) காடலன் கிடம்பர னாதன் இன்னும் வராட
பூரந டயவுள்ள பொன்னம்பல டுரை என் பொருமையை ஷோடிக்க மறைமுகமானடன்
கல்லாலும் வில்லாலும் கட்டி அடிட்டேனோ கந்நப்பன் ஸெஇடடை-கனவினில் ஸெஇடேனோ
ஷெல்லாமனைக்கு டூடு ஸென்று வா என்றேனோ ஷெய்யாட காரியம் ஷெய்ய முயன்றேனோ
కారణం కేట్టు వాడి (సఖి) కాడలన్ చిదంబర నాతన్ ఇన్నుమ్ వరాడ
పూరణ దయవుళ్ళ పొన్నమ్బల డురై ఎన్ పొరుమైయై శోడిక్క మఱైముఖమానడన్
కల్లాలుమ్ విల్లాలుమ్ కట్టి అడిట్టేనో కన్నప్పన్ సెఇడడై-కనవినిల్ సెఇడేనో
శెల్లామనైక్కు టూడు సెన్రు వా ఎన్రేనో శెయ్యాడ కారియమ్ శెయ్య ముయన్ఱేనో

P: Oh friend, please find out the reason as to why my lover, Lord of Cidambaram, has not visited me yet.
A: The lord of the golden hall, who with his immense grace, is testing my patience and hence remains invisible to me.
C: Did I strike him with stones or the bow? or did I do (or even think of in my dream) what KaNNappan (nAyanAr) did? (KaNNappa nAyanar put his foot on the eye of the lord to guide him to do the transplant of his own second eye on the Lord’s second bleeding eye). Did I send him to carry a message to a house which is prohibited? Did I even attempt to do something which should not be done?.
