Skandar Andatii
« on: November 23, 2008, 12:39:11 PM »
The Verse 55 of Skandar Anbhuti, reads as under:

Theetho-maranam.....  Not only bad things, even death will also
be avoided, by chanting his names!

Theethom-aran-am,  On the ocean, inside a large fortress, the
Surapadma was staying with his enormous army,

Thee-thomara-nam, O Skanda with firelike Spear, to whom
the Brahmins in large numbers pray everyday, as Agni,

The-ethu-omarana,  O pearlike God of the Hills,  these Brahmins give you
the offerings in the sacrificial alter, and pray to you to ward off the
bad things and death.  Why not I too pray?
