After saying ARumukam six times, they take the Holy Ash (VibUthi)
and apply it on their bodies, the great sages;

their devotees prostrate before the sages’ lotus feet;
such devotees’ feet are the only solace to us.
Every day, (we pray to You saying) “You, the great peacock rider!
GuhA! SaravaNA! my God!

My dignity is entirely Yours” and we ask
“The mental anguish of ours, the poor souls –
why is it like this?” – Even then (if You are silent)
who will praise You?

What will the VEdAs speak about You?
Adorned with the holy ash on Your golden body,
Oh VELA! The rider of the beautiful blue peacock!
Oh MurugavEL, the son of UmAdEvi!

Along with the Asuras,
destroy my evil Karma too;
for that You fling Your long and unique Spear!
Oh, VELA, whose Spear is fierce like VatavAgni (the Cosmic Fire which destroyed the Universe once).

The giant asura (GajamukAsuran) came furiously
(before) the elephant-headed VinAyagA, who took the Asura’s life – You are the younger brother of that VinAyagA!

With mountain peaks reaching the roof of the sky,
is beautiful Pazhani, which is Your abode, Oh KumarA!

You gave a boon to BrahmA!
MurugA! Oh Lord of Lords!
