Aazhi mazhaik kannaa ondru nee kai karavel
aazhi ul pukku mugandhu kodu aarthu eri
oozhi mudhalvan uruvam pol mey karuththup
paazhiy am tholudaip padmanaaban kaiyil
aazhi pol minni valamburi pol nindru adhirndhu
thaazhaadhe saarnga mudhaiththa sara mazhai pol

maargazhi neeraada magizhndhelor embaavaay
Oh Lord Varuna who is the presiding deity of ocean-like burst of rains! (We pray to you so that) you please do not make your gift very small (i. e. be bounteous towards us). We request you (in the form of clouds) to pour plenty of rains in the world; first you should get into the womb of the deep seas and take excessive water (so that even the sea becomes bereft of water),make thunder (uproar), and go higher up (in the sky); (the color of) your body should become as dark as that of the primordial cause of the world (Oozhi Mudalvan= Jagath Kaarana Bhuthan); you should become resplendent with lightning, just as the dazzling discus (Aazhi=Chakram) held on the hand of Lord Padmanabha with broad shoulders; you should make a thunderous roar like the conch (Paanchajanyam) held on the hand of the Lord; you should bring forth rains in abundance without any cessation, the rains just like the shower of arrows coming forth in succession from the bow (Saarangam) of the Lord; your rains should be for the good of the world so that the world flourishes; and, through your rains, we will have plenty of water and also happily take the ceremonial bath during Maarghazhi month.
