Aatthu kal vazhunna devi maheswari,
Pothuka nee yenne nithyam krupakari
Oh goddess who lives in atthukal, Oh great goddess ,
Daily you please look after me, Oh merciful one.
Payasanna priyaya Visweswari ,
Manasa vase , tripureswari.
Oh Goddess of universe who likes Payasam,
Oh Goddess of three cities who lives in my mind
Nee mama chaithanyamai maruveetane ,
Nee man manassin mani vilakkavane ,
Nee yen prabodhadham tharakamavane ,
Nee yen janikku artha poornatha yekane.
You please live as my mental activity,
You become gem studded lamp in my mind,
You become the star that lights my intelligence,
And You please make my life to be meaningful .
