Thirumurai – 7

பித்தா பிறை சூடி பெருமானே அருளாளா
எத்தால் மறாவதே நினைகின்றேன் மனத்து உன்னை வைத்தாய்
பெண்ணை தென்பால் வெண்ணெய் நல்லூர் அருள் துறையுள்
அத்தா ! உனக்கு ஆள் ஆய் இனி அல்லேன் எனல் ஆமே

Pitttha Pirai soodi perumane arulalala
etthal maravadhe ninaikinren manathu unnai vaithai
pennai thenbaal vennai nalloor arul thuraiyul
attha !! unaku aal aai ini allen enal aame.

A beautiful poem which my mother taught me in school days and I remember it even now, but look at the beauty of sundarar and his bhakti and gyanam flowing as one stream
