The full moon day of Margazhi is here (from Tiruppavai)

by Andal

English version by
Original Language Tamil

The full moon day of Margazhi is here
What an auspicious day it is!

O dear ornamented girls
who thrive in Brindavana,
overflowing with prosperity

Come along, let us go bathe,
Come along if you so desire.

Narayana --
The son of Nandagopa,
whose sharp spear is readily so cruel --
The young lion of Yashoda,
whose eyes are so full of love --
With dark body
red eyes
face like the sun and moon

Narayana alone
will give us
The drum!

So join us, so that the people
Of the world will celebrate.
