Thiruppaavai - song 3



This is the 3rd song from Thiruppaavai

3. Ongi ulagaLandha uththaman pErpaadi
    naangaL nam paavaikkuch chaatri neer aadinaal,
    theengindri naadellaam thingaLmum maaripeidhu
    Ongu perunj chenne loodu kayal ugaLap
    poonkuvaLaip pOdhil poRivandu kaNpaduppa,
    ThEngaadhE pukkirundhu seertha mulaipatri
    vaangak kudam niRaikkum vaLLal perumpasukkaL
    neengaadha selvam niRaindhElO rembaavai

Meaning 

If we sing the praise of Him,
Who grew big and measured the world,
And worship our Goddess Pavai,
Then would there be at least three rains a month,
And the red paddy plants would grow big,
And in their fields would the fish swim and play,
And the spotted bees after sipping honey,
To their hearts content,
Would sleep in the flower themselves
After having their fill,
And the cows with big udder
Would fill milk pots to the brim,
And healthy cows and never diminishing wealth,
Would fill the country,
And all this I assure by our vratham / practice.
