Mahishi Mardhana-A Malayalam Krithi
Dr. V.R.Prabodha Chandran Nayar
(A Krithi about Lord Ayyappa-the killer of ogress Mahishi.)
Mahishi mardhana, Manjula vadans ,
Mahimaa nirjitha surari sena
Oh killer of Mahishi , Oh pretty faced one ,
Who won over the enemies of Devas by his own power
Thuhina karopama , manojna hasaa,
Ahibhooshana , hari nandana Basa,
He who is similar to the oon , who laughs in an attractive manner ,
And who makes happy the God wearing snakes and Lord Vishnu.
Gananaatheetha , gunasritha bodhaa,
Gana guha sahajaa, BHootha nadha ,
Anayaan aruluga samsyuthi vahni,
THuna nilkaanaa a, athil nee yenni.
He who is beyond estimation , who is wise depending on good qualities,
He who is the friend I of Ganas as well as subrahmanya who is the lord of Bhoothas,
Please command the fire which is raging to stifle,
And in that who else except you would be support too me.
