It's for him who makes a 9Bhoopradakshna first
Starting now, the contestant must be back here first
To get the entitlement to victory and the fruit
Prove your mettle to the audience and take the fruit."
As Maheswar ended, Shanmuga on peacock began his round
But Vinayaka with hands folded started going round
The pedestal adorned by his parents, the couple divine
Completing, he took the fruit from his father divine.
Coming back sweating, Shanmuga demanded of his parents
As how Vinayaka deserved for a mere round the parents
And started accusing the father for his partiality
And Mother sitting mute to injustice sans cordiality.
Unable to stand Shanmuga's charges baseless
10Uma tried to pacify him with appeals helpless
Unheeding, Shanmuga emptied his rage on audience
When Narada rose to clarify on behalf of audience.
"Know you Shanmuga, parents are the living gods
They embody the whole cosmos along with gods
Going round them means gaing round the worlds and gods
It's the scriptural truth endorsed by all gods.
viveka, and you, vignana personified in sooth
Wisdom is superior to knowledge-an immutable truth
Mark this, and be contented without any farther ado
Vinayaka's right and father's is just, honour the credo.
9. going round the world.
10. another name for Parvati, the wife of Siva.
