Oh one who uplifted the clan of kausalai, who has abundantly fragrant black locks! Oh one who is the son-in-law of janaka maharAjar who had great, lasting fame! Oh one who is the divine son of dhaSaratha chakravarthi! Oh one who has taken residence mercifully in thirukkaNNapuram which has more pious waters than river gangai! Oh one who is like a bluish coloured gemstone to me! Oh one who is the most enjoyable ambrosia in our royal clan! Oh Sri rAma! My lullaby to you.
kongu mali karum kuzhalAL kausalai than kula madhalAy – Oh one who uplifted the clan of kausalai dhEvi, who had fragrant and dark locks!
thangu perum pugazhch chanagan thirumarugA – Oh one who is the son-in-law of king janaka who is the repository of all that has fame!
dhAsaradhI – Oh one who was born as the son of king dhaSaratha, appropriate to become the son-in-law of king janaka.
gangaiyilum thIrththamali kaNapuraththen karumaNiyE – Oh one who has taken residence in thirukkaNNapuram, which has more pious waters than the river gangai, and who is the epitome of simplicity! When emperumAn took thrivikrama avathAram (incarnation), his divine foot reached sathyalOkam (the residence of brahmA). When brahmA washed his divine feet, the water which flowed from his divine feet came down as gangai. Hence, its piety can be known. Since the water bodies in thirukkaNNapuram such as nithya pushkariNi etc have constant connection with emperumAn, don’t these water bodies have more piety than gangai?
engal kulaththu innamudhE! irAgavanE! thAlElO – Oh one who incarnated in the clan of raghu and who is sweet, like ambrosia, for all of us, who were born in the regal clan!
thAlElO – lullaby to you.
We will take up the 4th pAsuram of this decad, next.
