Conceptual meaning by K. Ramaraj.
pallavi: (1st line) Oh Devi, you are the embodiment of Divine Music
Laden with the alluringly beautiful Gamaka.
(2nd Line) Through the iunblemished melody emerged from
anupallavi: The celestial and eternal Devas and those endowed
With the sacred tenets have andearingly professed
the theory of SAMARASA BHAVA(THEORY OF
equanimity) through SAAMAGAANAM oriented Divine
Music which abounds with beauties of gamaka.
caraNam: Oh Devi UMA !You are the embodiment of divine
TAMIL music, captivating even the soul of Lord
VISHNU who is worshipped even by VaakDevi Saraswathy
And it is for you to reign (me) the ignorant soul and have your
Grace showered upon me
