Vel Muruga-A Malayalam Krithi
Dr.V.R.Prabdha chandran nayar
Ragam Sri Ranjini
(Lord Muruga of Pazhani is an ishta devatha of Keralites. This Krithi praises Lord N Muruga.)
Vel Muruga , nin neel vel munayaal,
Oh Lord Muruga with Vely, using the tip of your long Vel,
You should uproot all hindrances.
Ner varum azhal malayellame nin,
Ther naadham kettu akalenam.
All the mountains of sorrow which come towards me ,
Should go away hearing the sound of your chariot.
Nin mayil, peeli vitharthaadumbol,
Yen manam eenam nalgenam,
Nanmayil yen mathiyingal bodham,
When your peacock opens its feathers and dances ,
My mind should sing the suitable melodious tune
And in my brain wisdom for the good ,
Should grow along with the truth.
