మీనాక్షి మే ముదం దేహి
మేచకాంగి రాజ మాతంగి

అనుపల్లవి

మాన మాతృ మేయే మాయే
మరకతచ్ఛాయే శివ జాయే
(మధ్యమ కాల సాహిత్యం)
మీన లోచని పాశ మోచని
మానిని కదంబ వన వాసిని

చరణం

మధురా పురి నిలయే మణి వలయే
మలయ ధ్వజ పాండ్య రాజ తనయే
విధు విడంబన వదనే విజయే
వీణా గాన దశ గమక క్రియే
(మధ్యమ కాల సాహిత్యం)
మధు మద మోదిత హృదయే సదయే
మహా దేవ సుందరేశ ప్రియే
మధు ముర రిపు సోదరి శాతోదరి
విధి గురు గుహ వశంకరి శంకరి

Pallavi

O Meenakshi! Yield me bliss.The one who wears golden adornments.The one who is in the form of RajamAtangi.

Anupallavi

Charanam

The one who dwells in Madhurapuri.The one who wears a bejewelled bangle. The one who was born as the daughter of Malyadhwaja Pandya.The one who has a face that rivals the moon in beauty. Victorious one! The one who creates the 10 gamaks associated with vINA playing.The one who brings bliss to the heart. The one dear to Sundaresha.The one who is the sister of Vishnu,who is the enemy of the asuras Madhu and Mura.The one with a slender waist.The one who captivates Brahma and Guruguha! The ever-auspicious
