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

    Original Script

    பிடியதன் உருவுமை கொளமிகு கரியது
    வடிகொடு தனதடி வழிபடும் அவரிடர்
    கடிகண பதிவர அருளினன் மிகுகொடை
    வடிவினர் பயில்வலி வலமுறை யிறையே

    Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
