Surrender to him

ஆதி அந்தம் அரி என யாவையும்
ஓதினார் அலகு இல்லன உள்ளன
வேதம் என்பன மெய் நெறி நன்மையன்
பாதம் அல்லது பற்றிலர் பற்றிலார்.

 

In the beginning and in the end, they invoke his name

those who chant the measureless, permanent

Vedas; only to the wise one’s foot do they hold on to,

those who have shed everything else.

 

Kamban indulges in word play here – பற்றிலர் (Won’t hold any thing else) பற்றிலார் (those who have shed all worldly ambitions)
