Simple translation

emperumAn severed the sharp nose of sUrpaNakA who approached making noise and came with zeal, opening her cave like mouth, with a sword, to make her cry out. The lord of nithyasUris who is having the radiant thiruvAzhi which is very shining, held the mountain named gOvardhan and stopped the great rain which was appearing with great speed and noise, in front of indhra et al who opposed, to protect the herd of cows. Such sarvESvaran is eternally residing in the beautiful SrI sALagrAmam which is surrounded by ponds. Oh mind! Reach such SrI sALagrAmam.

Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

  • aduththu – Pursued eagerly.
  • Arththu ezhundhAL – Making noise, she came zealously, calling out; her nose.
  • ayil – Sharp. He [through iLaiya perumAL) pulled out the divine dagger and severed her nose.
  • viLAngu … – By manifesting the beautiful combination of his hand and divine chakra, he conducts the life of nithyasUris.
  • naNNAr … – In front of the enemies. As the great rain was triggered by indhra’s intent, it poured down heavily with great force. He stopped such rain by holding the gOvardhana mountain to protect the cows which can neither realise the favour done by emperumAn nor have any means to protect themselves.
  • thadam … – He is residing in the beautiful SrI sALagrAmam which is surrounded by ponds.[Oh mind! Try to reach there]
