Pidiyathan Uruvumai


Note: The proper pronunciation of sandhi (joining) between "uru" and "umai" forming the second word, "uruvumai," is "v" and not "g." As is often the case in singing, short vowels are elongated at the end of some words or lines. For more information on sandhi and a guide for singing see our singing guide

    பிடியதன் உருவுமை கொளமிகு கரியது
    வடிகொடு தனதடி வழிபடும் அவரிடர்
    கடி கணபதிவர அருளினன் மிகுகொடை
    வடிவினர் பயில்வலி வலமுறை இறையே!

    Transliteration

    KadigaNa padhivara varulinan migukodai
    Vadivinar payilvali valamurai yiraiyey!

    It is the older folk, the wiser folk, the experienced elders, who have lived longer and therefore can see further, to whom youth should be listening.
