Srimathe Gopaladesika Mahadesikaya Namah:

Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

ParakAla nAyaki – unable to bear the pangs of separation now says to herself 
“Rakshakan has left me here in this plight”. Who else is my rakshakan here 

1. He, who had lifted Govardhana Mountain effortlessly as an umbrella to 
stop the torrential downpour sent by DevEndhran; and who had danced with 
cowherd women has haunted my memories.  In front of my house, those “anRil” 
birds from those trees are torturing me with their shrill (lamenting) voices 
too. Who can save those birds from those nests?

2. He, who had broken even the heavy kurundha tree; who had angered on the 
seven bulls and killed them; who had tore open the Kesi asuran’s mouth; who 
had broken the tusk of Kuvalayaapeetam elephant; who has sucked the 
poisonous breast of Poothanai along with her life- Such Greatest KaNNan, 
(who has such divine mouth to suck Poothnai’s life too) torments me; Not 
only does He trouble; also the music from Balaraman’s flute also torments me 
with greater vigor.

3. I have been always contemplating on that most fragrant Thirutthuzhaay 
garland that adorns Emperumaan, who had killed the two wrestlers sent by 
Kamsan and killed the sender Kamsan too; This gentle evening breeze also 
searches the place where I stay and come to torture me. The sounds of those 
huge bulls also further aggravate my sufferings greater.

4. Whenever I think of those two unparalleled Feet of Ramapiraan who had 
sent the arrow through even trees, that dark deep blue ocean’s wave roars 
heavily. In addition to that the sea breeze trouble me. What can I do to 
overcome these sufferings? (Only He can help)

5. These ocean waves’ roars; the anRil birds’ sounds troubling me; the 
bangles that slip off from my wrists; - all these happen only after my 
getting lost to KaNNapiraan, the Divine Consort of Nappinnai PiraaTTi, (who 
has dark long black tresses, who has the most beautiful gait like swan, who 
has most gorgeous PeethAmbaram (silk cloth) around her waist).

6. SarvEshwaran, - Our Swami- who has the Divine Sanghu and ChakrA, has 
called us for the endless uniting experience like a dream. Except for my 
friend and I, the whole world is sleeping. This hen also does not crow for 
announcing the dawn’s arrival. This dark night appears to be never ending.

7. The way Manmanthan troubles me is ineffable. The dark, blue hued ocean 
like form -KaNNan is my beloved husband. His son Manmathan is also my son. 
But he (manmathan), coming to talk of, is terribly torturing me throwing 
“virhahaagni” (fire of pangs of separation) on me. My tender breasts grow 
thinking of that blue gem stone like Divine Bodied SarvEshwaran.

8. Emeprumaan, who shows Himself at ThirummaalirunchOlai, has stolen the 
feminine shyness from my heart. He has never thought of me- not even once. 
This Sun- why does he not come out? Where had he gone hiding? If this body 
of ours perishes with this suffering like this, I think it will do good to 
us. (means, we need not suffer any more after death)

9. Oh friend! Do not think that we can wait till He comes, considering our 
feminine nature and our Athma guNAs, instead of suffering from Manmathan’s 
torturous arrows. Shall we go towards where He is and let us both pay our 
obeisance to the dark cloud bodied Lord and enjoy His Beauty with our eyes 
to the fullest?

10. This ten is on SarvEshwaran, the ever-victorious One, who killed seven 
bulls at the same time. Kaliyan, the king of Thirumangai, composes it. 
Those, who recite this garland of ten pAsurams, will have NO SORROWS. To 
tell further, the place (world) where they reside will have no grievance at
