Sri:
Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

In last ten, Parakala nayaki lamented that she had lost her wrist bangles 
for Him..
Now she tells the rain flies (thumbhI) not to stay on her hair as she has 
lost her feminity to Him and thereby the fragrance on her hairs.. Hence, she 
addresses the bees (thumbhIs- that were loitering on her hair and drinking 
honey from her flowers (on her hair) not to stay there anymore and go 
somewhere else where they can certainly find honey and drink a lot. Also 
give some back to her too.. Very poetic ten! Beautiful!!

1. Oh ThumbHi! the One that drinks honey from the pollen of flowers! The 
Lord- Emperumaan- SarvEshwaran- the Divine Consort of Periya PiraaTTi- the 
chief of Nithyasooris- KalyaaNa guNagaNouka mahaarNavan- is the Lord of 
ThirukkaNNapuram- Sowri raja PerumAL. Go and drink the fragrance that 
persists on the thuzhaay maalai on His shining crown and blow on me that 
fragrance..

2. ThumbhI! The Vedha mudhalvan! The Chjeif who is praised in Vedas! the One 
who wears PooNool on His ThirumEni; The Greatest Lord, whose Feet are 
worshipped by one and all; The SarvEshwaran of ThirukkaNNapuram; Go and 
drink the fragrance that prevails on his Thuzhaay ( which is adorned by Him) 
and blow it on me..

3.  Oh ThumbhI! What did you achieve by loitering and wandering on those 
flowers that bloomed?(None.. the honey gets exhausted very soon. also it is 
alpam... ).. This Honey- this fragrance always stays with Him.. never ever 
gets finished.. Hence, the Nirvaahakan of all worlds- the 
ThirukkaNNaperumaan- is available. Go and drink fragrance from His ThuLasi 
that He wears and blow on me.. (perhaps then only can I survive..)

4.  ThumbhI! The Matsya avtaar that appeared unparalleled on the large vast, 
deep ocean; the limitless unbounded Koormam; the ferocious peerless 
Narasingan; - is all Emperumaan of ThirukkaNNapuram whose Divine Beautiful 
ThirumEni is enjoyed all who see Him, like dark huge clouds; Go and drink 
the fragrance that prevails on his Thuzhaay ( which is adorned by Him) and 
blow it on me..

5.  ThumbhI! What good you obtained by standing on those beautiful flowers? 
The Koormam (Tortoise) - Huge Beautiful One that spread everywhere 
throughout the vast Universe- on huge Ocean - is the Lord of 
ThirukkaNNapuram. Go and drink the fragrance that prevails on his Thuzhaay ( 
which is adorned by Him) and blow it on me..

6.  kOl thumbhI! the One that drinks honey from the pollen of flowers! He 
has Periya PiraaTTi in His Divine Chest! He has Strong chakrA in His right 
resplendent Hand; He is the Greatest Lord who had brought out the Universe 
(BhUmi PiraaTTi) from troubled waters; He is dark hued bluish colored 
Emperumaan like the Kaayampoo.(?) he is The Lord of ThirukkaNNapuram. Sowri 
rAja perumAL.  Go and drink the fragrance that prevails on his Thuzhaay ( 
which is adorned by Him) and blow it on me..

7. ThumbhI! He is the One who appeared as Vaamanan; He desires to appear as 
KaRki; He is the One who killed Madhu.. He is Madhavan; He is the one who 
appeared simply for protecting and rakshaNam as Chakravartthi Thirumagan. 
(as Rama); He is the Father of Cupid (manmathan) and That Greatest Lord is 
the Lord of ThirukkaNNapuram; Go and drink the fragrance that prevails on 
his Thuzhaay ( which is adorned by Him) and blow it on me..

8.  kOl thumbhI! Don;t blow unnecessarily on thsoe blue flowers, paady 
fields; etc.,You go and drink from the yama of the asurAs; the 
ThirukkaNNaperumAL- Sowri rAjan- from the thuLAsi that is on His shining 
lustrous kireetam; and blow on me that fragrance..

9.  ThumbhI! He is teh son of Nandhan;He is the One who fixes the Time for 
the worlds; He is the Primordial Cheif; He is the Consort of SrI; BhU Devi; 
He is SwamI of Nithyasooris; He is of the blue hued colour like dark rainy 
clouds; Such Greatest Emperumaan- SarvEshwaran- from the bunch of ThuLasi 
that adorns His shining kireetam - go and rink the fragrance and blow on

10. ThumbhI! the chief of Thiruvaali; the one who conquers enemies; Kaliyan- 
by name; is the one who composed this ten which is on the dark hued cloudy 
colored Lord of ThirukkaNNapuram. Please blow this ten on the minds of us to
