Cursed Uma, thy spouse, when her egoism mistook thy placability for debility,
Gave her the title Gnanaprasunambika, seeing that ego turned into docility
Relishing the vuchchishta meat of Kannappa,
revealed the import of devotion
Seeing the unique bhakti of spider - serpent - elephant gave them salvation.
Teaching Pranava, turned this land into Dhakshina Kailas of great name,
Finding the ebullient genius in boy Dhurjati, made him a bard of high fame
Enshrining in Vayulinga, thou art breathing in Mukti Vayu into
Bless us O Lord Mahadev! to become
Kannappas to merge info thy body.
