Talam Misra chapu
Mookambika kshethra thirunadayingal jnan,
Ekantha dhayathil aandu ninnen.
In the auspicious door of the Mookambika temple ,
I Stood in solitary meditation.
Rakamathi mukhi devi saudamini ,
Lekangi munnil thilangi ninnal.
The goddess with a full moon face , who is like ,
Lightning stood shining in front of me.
Devi than thejassu Mamakathmavine ,
Ppavithamakki uyarthi nirthi,
Poovil manam pole , ravil kuliru pole ,
Devi yennullile bodhamayi.
The luster of that Goddess purified ,
My soul and made it stand high ,
Like scent in a flower, like cold in the dawn,
The goddess became the wisdom of my mind.
