The lamp lighted on the hill , the Varadaraja lamp,
Which removes the darkness of wants .

Matharasi devaki yethiya deepam.
The ruby emerald lamp of this world,
Which was lighted by our great lady Devaki.
Navaneetham manakka varum deepam,
Narada ganam kettu thulli yezhum deepam,
Kuvalai malar neela deepam-aayar,
Kulam vazha vandhu nindra nalam therum deepam,
Avayinil Panchali azhaitha neram,
Ayiram kodi vannamai poi yezhundha deepam,
Divi gana munivarkal kuviyum karam kandu,
Uvakayodu arulum bhuvana deepam,
Chithamidai vandhu thava shuddha sathuvam kalanthu,
Nithiya mida vazhangu matha giri yennumoru
The Lamp which comes along with the smell of butter,
The lamp which jumps and gets up on hearing the song of Narada,
The blue lamp which is like Kuvalai flower,
The lamp which came and stood to look after the cowherd clan,
The lamp which arose with thousand colours in the council,
At the time when Panchali called for it,
The lamp of the world which with joy graced,
When it saw the folded hands of the sages of the earth,
The lamp came in the mind and mixed pure philosophy,
And gave it daily and is the one called Mathagiri.
