Translated by P. R. Ramachander

Shiva who dances the thandava (male form of vigourous dance) presides over the temple in Chidambaram.

Krupasamudhram, Sumukhan, Trinethram,
Jada dharmam Parvathy vama bhagam,
Sad shivam, Rudram anatha roopam,
Chidambaresam hrudhi bhavayami.

I salute with all my heart,
The Lord of Chidambara,
Who is the ocean of mercy,
Who is always pleasant,
Who has three eyes,
Who wears tuft of hair,
Who is always peaceful,
Who is full of anger
And who is an endless shape.
