Yen palli kondeer Ayya
( In the popular versions only one Charanam is there. But I found reference to three charanams also. I have used the popular version.)
Yen palli kondeer aya,
Sri Ranganatha, neer
Aambal pootha shaya parvatha maduvile,
Yavadaritha irandu nadi naduvile
1.Kousigan chol kurittadarko? Arakki kulayil ambu terithadarko?
Ishan villai murithadarko? Parasuramn uram parithadarko?
Mashillada mithilesan pennudane vazhi nadanda ilaippo?
Dhooshilada guhan odathile gangai thurai kadanda ilaipo?
Meesharamaam Chitrakoota Sikarathin Misai Kadantha Ilaipo
Kasini mel Marichan odiya gati thodarnda ilaippo?
Odi kalaitho Deviyai thedi ilaipo Marangla ezhai thulaitho?
Kadalai katti valitho? Lankai ennum kaval ma nagarai iditha varuthamo?
Ravanadigalai muditha varuthamo?
Oh Ranganatha, why are you lying down?
Between two rivers originating,
From a lily pond of the great mountain.
1. Is it for following the words of Viswamithra?
Is it for killing the rakshasi by hitting her with arrow?
Is it for breaking the bow of Lord Shiva? Is it for conquering pride of Parasurama?
Is it foe walking along with the daughter of the spotless king of Mithila?
Is it for crossing river Ganges in the boat of the spotless Guha?
Is it due to the crossing of the peak in Chithra koota?
Is it due to following and Chasing Maricha in the earth?
Is it tiresomeness due to running? Is it tiredness due to searching of Sita?
Is it due to effort in putting a hole in the seven trees?
Is it due to taming the sea and building a bridge?
Is it due to the sorrow in destroying the city of Lanka?
Is it due to the sorrow of killing Ravana and others?
