“KumarA, GuruparA, MurugA, SaravaNA,
GuhA, ShanmugA, the younger brother of GanEshA with an elephant-face, Son of SivA,
You are the Master of SivA who Himself is the Master of the Panchakshara (five letters) SivAyanama” –
This chanting gets loud like the sound of the churning of the Milky Ocean for Divine Nectar by DEvAs;
this is the loud prayer chanted daily by Your devotees;
and do You not hear their appeal made in complete surrender to You to do away with all their Karmas (bad deeds)?
(In the war with asuras) the seven dark seas and the seven worlds were destroyed and all the eight directions were crushed;
the tufts and bodies of the confronting asuras were knocked down;
and You, with the Great Spear, snatched away their lives in the war.
With fiery feet that took the life of Yaman (Death-God)*
and tresses bearing the River Ganga, Lord SivA has You as His Master!
You have an abode at SwAmimalai, full of lotus flowers;
and You are praised by VEdAs (scriptures) that are chanted, Oh Great One!
