Ambala puzhayile Chembaka meyyane-Malayalam Krithi
DR.V.R.Prabodha chandran nayar
(In Kerala Amalapuzha Krishnan is as famous as the Krishnan of Guruvayur. This temple is very near to Alapuzha town of Kerala. The Pal Payasam prasadam of this temple is simply matchless in taste . It is believed that when Tipu Sulthan attacked Kerala , the idol of Guruvayurappan was taken to this temple for protection.)
Ambala puzhayile chembaka meyyane ,
Ambala kadavathu kathirikkum jnan,
I would be waiting for the God whose body,
Is of colour of Champa flowers ,
In the bathing ghat of the temple.
Chempavizha chundil, punchiri, pon kuzhal,
Anbumai aa maayan Vannu nilkkum.
That enchanter would come and stand there with a smile,
Golden flute and friendship.
Ambala poo maala peeli kolothu jnan,
Ambadi Kannannu kaazhcha vekkum,
Ambodha roopande ,minnalanee yezha,
Yen bodham ammattil annudhikkum.
I would present him with humility,
The flower garland of the temple and,
The stick with the feather of peacock,
And in the brain of this poor one who is the lightning of that God,
Of him who looks like cloud, a new consciousness would rise.
