nEsan enRum … – One who is fully loving towards his devotees.
then thisai … – dhEvAdhi dhEvan who is mercifully standing in thirunAngUr where brAhamaNas who are the chief of south direction are residing.
palarum Esa … – While many are accusing her, she considers them as her companions and sings about his town.
