Simple Translation

Oh the daughter of kaikEyi! You have made SrI rAma, who has learnt all the vEdha SAsthrams from great, learned teachers, along with his younger brother, lakshmaNa, and my daughter-in-law, sIthAp pirAtti, whose waist is thinner than even lightning, to go the forest. You have brought blame on bharatha, who is affectionate towards you. You have made me too, to go the world far above. What benefit did you get (out of all these)? In this expansive earth, you are living comfortably.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

pon peRRAr ezhil vEdhap pudhalvanaiyum thambiyaiyum – Teachers are considered by everyone to be wealthy people (wealth of education). SrI rAma had learnt from them all the texts which are beautiful. Both he and his younger brother, who is inseparable from him . . .

pUvai pOlum min paRRA nuN marungul melliyal en marugiyaiyum – looking like the bird pUvai (bush mynA), having a slender waist, similar to lightning, and having soft characteristics, sIthAp pirAtti, my daughter-in-law

vanaththil pOkki – sending [the three of them] to the forest

nin paRRA nin magan mEl pazhi viLaiththittu – creating a blame on bharatha, who does not consider anyone other than you as his mother, “He carried out a treacherous act on his brother”

ennaiyum nIL vAnil pOkka en peRRAy kaikEsI – making me too to ascend the world above, what did you get as the benefit for all these acts?

iru nilaththil inidhAga irukkinRAyE – the greatest happiness that one can get out of this samsAram (materialistic realm) is to be together with husband and children. You have sent SrI rAma, who considered you as his mother, to the forest and you have sent me, your husband, to the world above. He [dhaSaratha] reviles kaikEyi, telling her “You are going to enjoy the pleasures of this world very well!”

We will next take up the 9th pAsuram of this decad.
