We shall continue with the composition titled Paya Puli, The Rushing
Tiger. 

The Verse 3 reads as under:

Without any penance worth its name,
I do not even pluck fresh flowers,
And submit them to your feet,
When I can I  keep my hands above my head,
And pray to you, in the company of devotees,
And melt and become liberated,
When can I get your grace?
O my father in Chidambaram!

The Verses 4 reads as under:

You are the One who stays in the Hearts,
Of devotees and rains your mercy,
You are the One who is a thunderbolt
For the demons of Tripura and our karmas.
You are the One who dances in the Presence of,
Those who adore you, O the mad Siva!
If one understands your true nature,
You are the Space, without any boundaries.
