Ongi Ulagalandha Utthaman Per Paadi
Naangall Nampavaikku Chaattri Neeradinal
Theengindri Nadellam Thingal Mummaripeydhu
Ongu Perum Sennnelloodu Kayalugala
Poonkuvalai-p-podil Porivandu Kannpaduppa
Thengathe Pukkirindhu Seertha Mulai Pattri
Vaanga-k-kudam Niraikkum Vallall Perum Pasukkal
Neengade Selvam Niraindhu-el-or em Paavaai
Madabhushi Sridhar's English Poem 3
Sing of the dwarf who grew to measure the Universe.
As holy bath cleanses the heart to intensify the prayer.
Three rains a month to raise the wealth of crops.
Where fishes flourish with joy in farm-waters, and
Where bees doze within the folds of white lotuses
Grown up and healthy cows in herds are ready and
Generous enough to splash the streams of milk filling the pots
Wealth unlimited greets all of us, come & join my girls.
This poem refers to Raama and Krishna, besides explaining the power of Vaamana. Mantras might have stringent restrictions for chanting. But singing the name of God is easy and free from all limitations. Anybody at any time can spell His name. Gopikaas were asked to come and bathe in early hours with chanting of Naarayana Naamam. It will relieve them from pangs of separation from Sri Krishna. Once you get into it there is no dearth for anything, says Goda.
