He would come if those who have seen or heard call him.

There are eight incarnations , there are   eight   forms,

Before him Sudalat  madan is coming, he is very naughty god  ,
Who can make deciets and black magic fly away like cotton.

In the Madan who comes in front there is a big knife ,

             Deciding that   we would   see Lord Sastha at top of Sabari mountain,
             We would wear the rosary   and then take   the decision,
              For seeing the great lord  in the light of Makara  month,
             WE would worship him within our mind  and sing  with love.

Ayyappa sharanam entru                  swaamiyey sharanam entru
Ayyappa sharanam entru                  anputaney paadiduvom
Aanandhamaay paadiduvom             bhakthiyutam paadiduvom

We would sing with  love , I surrender  to Ayyappa,
I surrender  to the God  , I surrender  to Ayyappa,
We would sing with joy , we would sing with devotion.

Aarumukha sodaraney anpaana saasthaavai
Veeru kondu malai meley valam vanthu kumbidavey
Pampaa nadi kkarayeri pakkuvamaay neeraadi
Themudan venneerum pooshi thudarnthu malai yeriduvom

For saluting with valour after   perambulating on the mountain,
The loving Sastha   who is  the brother of the six faced one,
After  climbing to the banks of Pampa river and properly bathing there,

Karpoora jyothiyiley kalanthu nirkkum kadavul entru
Kai kooppi kumbiduvaar kankalil neer perukkiduvaar
Annadhaanam sheithuvarum anpar ullam thangiduvaar
Enna kurai irunthaalum ethir vanthu kaathiduvaar.

             Among those who salute with folded hands   that god,
As  one who is the one who stands mixed in the flame of camphor,
He would make them shed  tears   from their eyes,
He would stay in the minds of those  who come after making charity of food,
And whatever may be   their problems , he would come  and solve it.

Neyyabhishekam sheithiduvom nenjam maranthiduvom
Saasthaavey sharam entru sharana ghosham muzhakkiduvom
Aavesha kadavul entrum anandha roopan entrum
Aarvathudan adi paninthaar allalkalai pokkiduvaar
Aarvamutan poojai sheithu amrutha paanam sheithiduvom

We  would annoint  with ghee  and completly forge our heart,
We would loudly shout, Oh Sastha   you are  our protection,
For those who  say God with divine energy , as one who has a  form of joy,
And salute at his feet  with respect, he  would remove all their troubles,
We  would worship that nectar like God and drink nectar.

            kalnenjam urugi vidum          kaala bhayam odi vidum

            It would melt even stone like heart and the fear  of death will run away

             Heart,

            Who always  salute   your feet,

            Ippuviyil  inpam  vendaam  vendaam  endru
            Vanamthil  kehiya  vanpuli  vaahanaa
            Shabari  giri  thannil  ekaanthamaay  vaazhum
            Dheeraney  veeraney  sathya  swaroopaney                                    (karuna…)

            Oh God who rides  on a tiger , who went to the forest,
            Saying that  you do not want  the pleasures  of  this world,
            Oh Valorous one  who is the personification of truth,
             Who lives  on solitude  on the  Sabari  mountain.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

55.       Uthiram naalil avatharithaai                                                           (Karahara priya)
            Ayyappa sharanam sharanam sharanam sharanam ayyappaa
Swamiye sharanam sharanam sharanam sharanam ayyappaa

Oh Ayyappa, I surrender , I surrender , I surrender to you Ayyappa,
Oh God, I surrender , I surrender , I surrender  to you Ayyappa.

Uthiram naalil  avatharithaai           
Shathru samhaaram seyya vanthaai
Sharavana bhava guha  sotharaney
Shabari  maamalai  naayakaney                                           Ayyappaa…….

You were   born in the Uthram star,
You came   to exterminate  the enemies ,
 Oh Brother   of Saravana bhava guha,
Oh Lord   of the  big Sabari mountain.

Kaarthikai  muthalnaal  vanthidavey          
Keerthanai  unmel  paadidavey
Stothiram  seyya  nee  arul  vaayey
Shabari  maamalai  naayakaney                                           Ayyappaa…….

You would come on the previous day to Karthikai,
Please shower  your grace  for being able to,
Sing  praises   on you ,
Oh Lord   of the  big Sabari mountain.

Dhaarani  pukazh  shiva  baalakaney         
Poorana  pushkalai  naayakaney
Karunai  sheivai  veera  manikantaaa
Shabari  maamalai  naayakaney                                           Ayyappaa…….

Oh son  of Shiva who is praised by all the world,
Oh consort   of Poorna  and Pushkala ,
Please show your mercy , Oh valorous Mani Kanta,
Oh Lord   of the  big Sabari mountain.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
56.       Kondaattam                                                                                   (Naamaavali)
            Kondaattamaam kondaatam 
manikanta swaamikku mandala kaalathil kondaattam
Thindaattamaam thindaattam          
Ayyappan naamathai  sollaatha perukku thindaattam

Celebration and celebrations,
To the God Mani kanta during Mandala period,
Problems and suffering, problems and suffering,
To  those who do not tell the name  of God Ayyappa.

Maalai  aninthu  vritham  iruppathu            manassukku kondaattam (irumudi)
kettum shumanthu  kaattil nadappathu       kaalukku kondaattam

Wearing the rosary and doing penance is celebration to the mind,
Carrying two section packet and walking in the forest is celebration to the leg.

Erumeli shendru veshangal pottu                 thulluvathum oru kondaattam
Swami thinthakka thom                                 ayyappan thinthakka thom
Erumeli shendru veshangal pottu                 thulluvathum oru kondaattam
Ariyankaavinil  poorana psuhkalai               naathanukkum oru kondaattam

After reaching Erumeli dancing after putting on different  forms is one celebration,
God Thikka thom, Ayyappa , Thithikka thom,
After reaching Erumeli dancing after putting on different  forms is one celebration,
In Aryankavu to the consort of Poorna  and Pushkala  it is celebration.

Thengaai udaithu pathinettu padi                thaanduvathum oru kondaattam
Devargal  poojikkum sasthaavin sannidhi    sheruvathum  oru kondaattam

Breaking coconuts and climbing eighteen steps is one celebration,
Reaching the permanent temple in which devas worship is also  a celebration,


Sabarimalayil  swami  darshanam                  kannukku kondaattam  (angey)
shambhukumaaranin  naama sankeerthanam          kaathukku  kondaattam

Seeing the God in Sabari mountain is a celebration to the eye ,
And singing of names of son of Shiva   there is a celebration to the ears.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
57.       Ayyappa  sharanam                                                (Naadhanaamakriya)
Ayyappa  sharanam  swamiyey  sharanam 
Ayyappa  swamiyey  sharanamey  sharanam

I surrender  to Ayyappa, I surrender  to the  God,
I surrender  to Ayyappa, I surrender  to the  God,


Ambili  anintha  shiva  shankaranin  mainthan
Aadhi  paramaatmanai  avaniyil  vanthaan
Irumudiyum  thaangiyey  erumeli  shentru                         
Mela  thaalangal  udan  pettai  thulliduvom                         (Ayyappa    ……)       

Once the  son of Shiva who wears   the moon ,
Came  in this world as   the primeval God,
Carrying the two burdens, going to Erumeli,
We would dance in Pettai accompanied by music and drums

Katinamaam  karimalayay  sulbhamai  kadanthu
Punya  pampaa  nadhiyil  snaanamum  sheithu
Neelimalayum  shabari  peetavum  vanangi            
Nalla  pathinettu  padi  bhakthiyudan  paninthu                 (Ayyappa ……)

After safely crossing the forest covered  Karimala,
After taking bath in the sacred  Pampa river,
After saluting Neeli Malai  and Shabari Peeda ,
After  saluting with devotion the good eighteen steps.

Shabari  giri naathanin  sannidhiyil  shernthom
Neyyum  thenum  aadi  nimmathi  adainthom
Kaantha  malai  jyothiyai  kan kukira  kandom      
Vinnathira  sharanam  vili  muzhanguvathai  kettom         (Ayyappa………)

We reached    in front of the Lord of Sabari mountain,
And attained peace  by offering ghee  and honey,
Then by seeing the flame of Kanthamalai we gave enjoyment to the eyes,
And also shouting of “I surrender to you”, shaking the skies.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
58.       Unnidam  nerungukiren                                                   (Sindhu bhairavi)

            Unnidam  nerungukiren                                ayyaney  arul  purivaay
            Enthan  ullam  kavarnthavaney                   kaantha  malai  kaavalaney                                                                                                                                      (unnidam)

            I am coming near you, Oh Lord ,shower your grace ,
            Oh God who stole my heart, Oh guard of Kaantha malai.

            Mandala  kaalam  thannil                              maalayudan  vrutham  irinthu
            Aandanavey  unthan  pukazh                       anthippakal  paadi  vanthen
            Palli  kettu  chumadenthi                               kaadu  malai  eri  vanthen
            Madhavaa  mainthaa  unnai                         kaanavey  thudi  thudithen

             After observing penance  with rosary in the mandala period,
              Oh God ,I came singing your fame day   and night ,
              I came carrying the Palli Kettu  crossing mountains and forests ,
              Oh son of  Madhava , I was  very anxious   to see  you.

            Ponnu  pathinettu  padi                                 thulli  thulli  naan  kadanthu
            Ponnambalam  thannil  unnai                       kandu  naan  mathi  maranthen
            Sabari malai  uchiyiley                                   enna  thaan  athishayamoh
            Makaram  muthal  naalil  onnai                    kaana kkan  kodi  undu  (unnidam)

             Jumping and jumping  I crossed    the Golden eighteen steps and saw you,
             And seeing you in the golden temple  , I forgot myself,
             What wonder is there  in the top of Sabari mountain,
              On the first day of Makaram month, to see you , billions of eyes would be there.
