  • nAdIr nALdhORum – As one would eat whenever one is hungry [recite his name always].
  • vAdA malar koNdu – With flowers which are as fresh as your affection towards him.
  • pAdIr avan nAmam – As mukthAthmAs (liberated souls) would sing sAmagAnam as said in thaiththirIya upanishath “Ethath sAma gAyannAsthE” (The liberated soul is singing sAma gAnam), sing his divine names with love. nAdIr indicates the action of the mind; vAdA malar koNdu indicates action of the body; pAdIr indicates the action of the speech.
  • vIdE peRalAmE – As one engages in activities matching one’s true nature, one can get what is said in chAndhOgya upanishath 8.12.2 “svEna rUpENAbhinishpadhyathE” (attains natural realisation/blossoming of self). As one engages in sweet activities, one can get great benefit.
