Srimathe Gopaladesika Mahadesikaya Namah:

Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

In the last ten AzhwAr enjoyed the sowlabhyam of Emperum,aan showing Himself 
at ThirukkOttoyoor. Now here AzhwAr pays his obeisance to various Divya 
Desams PerumAL in one ten.

1. ”inRu pOik karunel soozh kaNNa mangaiyuL kaaNdumE..”- He, who helps us, 
on His own in monets of distress, who is an unparalleled “bandhu” (relative) 
(to us), who is my AthmA; who grants the parapa purushaartham; who grants 
the SrivaikuNTa prApthi after this sarIram perishes, who has an ever 
youthful Divya MangaLa ThirumEni; - (we) paid pour obesiacne to Him at 
Thiruneermalai; Today, (let us) go and pay our praNAmams (obeisance) to Him 
at ThirukkaNNamangai, surrounded by fully grown paddy fields.

2. “ponnai, maamaNiyai aNiyaarndhadhOr minnai* vEmkatatthu ucchiyil kaNdu 
pOi* ennai yaaLudai Isanai enpiraan thannaich* chenRu kaaNdum thaNkaavilE..

He, who is sought after desirously like the Gold; who is like the lost 
valuable “maNi” (gem stone); who shines like the lightning; who is at the 
top of ThiruvEmkata mountain to whom we paid our obeisance yesterday and who 
enslaved us and rules us,- who is our parama upakaarakan (most merciful 
one); - Today, let us go and pay our obeisance to Him and ThirutthaNkaa.

3. "vElai aalilaip paLLi virumiya/ paalai aaramudhatthinaip* paithuzhaay/ 
maalai aaliyiR kaNdu maghizndhupOi*/ jnAnalamunniyaik kaaNdum naangoorilE..

He, who is the sweetest like the milk, who enjoys reclining on the tender 
banyan leaf during praLayam (end of Cosmic cycle); who is immeasurable 
sweetest quality like the insatiable nectar; who wears the thuLasi maalai 
(garland); who is SarvEshwaran- whom we enjoyed paying our obeisance to Him 
at Thiruvaali Naadu; who is mediated upon by the entire world; - Today, let 
us go and pay our obeisance to Him at Thirunaangoor.

4. "thuLakkamil chudarai* avuNan udal/ piLakkum mainthanaip pEril 
vaNangippOi/ aLappil aaramudhai amararkku aruL/ viLakkinaich* chenRu 
veLLaRaik kaaNdumE..

Never diminishing jyOthi is He; SarvEshwaran, who is the strongest to pierce 
the body of HiraNyakasipu, to whom we paid our obeisance at ThiruppEr Divya 
Desam. He- who is insatiable nectar, who is like the lamp for Nithyasooris 
(at theLi visumbhu Thirunaadu); who is most merciful whose compassion can 
never be measured- let us go and pay our obeisance to Him today at 
ThiruveLLaRai.

5. "sudalaiyil sudu neeRan amarndhadhOr*/ nadalai theertthavanai naRaiyoor 
kaNden*/ udalaiyuL pugundhu uLLam urukkiyuN/ vidalaiyaich cheNru kaaNdum 
meyyatthuLLE/

SarvEshswaran, who mercifully removed the sorrow (curse) of Sivan, (who 
smears the ashes and remains from the graveyard on his body)- we saw Him and 
paid our obeisance at ThirunaRaiyoor. He, the One who entered into my body, 
melted my heart and swallowing me- Such greatest Lord- let us go and pay our 
obeisance at Thirummeyyam today.

6. "vaanaiyaar amudham thandha vaLLalaith*/ thEnai neeL vayal chERaiyil 
kaNdupOi* aanai vaatti aruLum amarartham/ kOnai* yaam kudnathaich chenRu 
kaaNdumE..

SarvEshwaran- the most benevolent one who gave nectar to celestial Devas; 
who Himself is so sweet like the honey; - whom we paid our obeisance at 
ThirucchERai. He- who is the Chief of Nithyasooris, who killed the strong 
elephant Kuvalayaapeetam;- Let us go and pay our obeisance to Him at 
Thirukkudanthai.

7. "koondhalaar magizh kOvalanaay* veNNai/ maandhu azhundhayil kaNdu 
magizhndhupOi*/ paanthaL paazhiyil paLLivirumbiya */ vendhanaich chenRu 
kaaNdum ve:gaavuLE.

He- who made the beautiful haired cowherd women folks happy by eating butter 
- who is SarvEshwaran- we paid our obeisance at Thiruvazhundhoor. Let us go 
and pay our obeisance to Him, (who enjoys reclining on ThiruvananthAzhwAn 
and having Yoga nithrA) at Thiruve:gaa.

8. " patthar aaviyai paanmathiyai* aNith /thotthai maalirunchOlaith 
thozhudhu pOi/ mutthinai maNiyai maNi maaNikka/vitthinaich* chenRu viNNagark 
kaaNdumE.

He, the One who is “life” (aavi) of BhakthAs (or is it “AthmA” of baddha 
jeevaathmaas – that AzhwAr refers to?), who is like the shining moon, 
enchanting the eyes that see Him; who is so gorgeous like the Ornament; who 
is SarvEshwaran; - whom we paid our obeisance at ThirummalirunchOlai. He, 
who is like the white pearl; who is of the Divine form like Blue hued gem 
stone; who is sweet like the most valuable Sapphire stone; who is the Cause 
for all (Sarva kaaraNan) - Let us go and pay our obeisance to Him at 
ThiruviNNagaram Divya Desam.

9. "kamba maa kaLiRu anjik kalanga* Or/ kombu koNda kurai kazhal 
kootthanaik/ kombulaampozhil kOttoyoork kaNdupOi / nambanaich cheNru kaaNdum 
naavaayuLE..

He, who plucked the tusk of huge terrifying Kuvalayaapeetam elephant making 
it shout with pain before dying, who walked gracefully enticing everyone who 
saw Him walking- SarvEshawarn- whom we paid our obeisance at 
ThirukkOttiyoor. Let us go and pay our obeisance to Him (who is dear to His 
beloved devotees) at Thirunaavaay.

10.  This ten is on the SarvEshwaran – the Lord of ThiruppEr Divya Desam who 
reared and protected the cows. KaliganRi AzhwAr composes it. It is very 
sweet and those who read them will never be in dearth of Bhagavadh Vishayam. 
The Parama padham will be easy to attain.
