Tiruk Kadavur Veerasthanam:

Verse 1:

மருட்டுயர் தீரவன் றர்ச்சித்த மாணிமார்க் கண்டேயற்காய்
இருட்டிய மேனி வளைவா ளெயிற்றெரி போலுங்குஞ்சிச்
சுருட்டிய நாவில்வெங் கூற்றம் பதைப்ப வுதைத்துங்ஙனே
உருட்டிய சேவடி யான்கட வூருறை யுத்தமனே.


To save Mārkāṇdēyaṉ, the bachelor, who worshiped him with flowers to be free from the sufferings of birth born of ignorance. Kicking the cruel god of death who had a twisted tongue, hairs as red as fire, curved white teeth and a dark body, [causing him] to tremble with fear, the superior god who dwells in Kadavūr has the lotus red feet with which he caused the god of death to roll on the ground in this manner.
(The central idea of the first nine verses is Siva killing the god of death to protect Mārkaṇdēyaṉ who worshiped Siva in this shrine.)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:

பதத்தெழு மந்திர மஞ்செழுத் தோதிப் பரிவினொடும்
இதத்தெழு மாணித னின்னுயி ருண்ண வெகுண்டடர்த்த
கதத்தெழு காலனைக் கண்குரு திப்புன லாறொழுக
உதைத்தெழு சேவடி யான்கட வூருறை யுத்தமனே.

Chanting the Mantram, which consists of five letters, each being a word with a meaning with affection, to take out the sweet life of the bachelor who woke up comfortably from sleep, the blood to flow like a river from the eyes of the god of death who rose by his strength to attack with anger, the superior Siva in Kadavūr, has lotus red feet with which he kicked the god of death and rose in estimation.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:


கரப்புறு சிந்தையர் காண்டற் கரியவன் காமனையும்
நெருப்புமிழ் கண்ணின னீள்புனற் கங்கையும் பொங்கரவும்
பரப்பிய செஞ்சடைப் பால்வண்ணன் காலனைப் பண்டொருகால்
உரப்பிய சேவடி யான்கட வூருறை யுத்தமனே.


The supreme god dwelling in Kadavūr is difficult to be realized by people having deceitful minds, burnt even Manmatha, by the fire, that he spat from his eyes.
His body is as white as milk and has  red matted locks, on which are spread an angry cobra and Ganga, of extensive water.  He has feet as red as lotus with which he frightened with a roar Yama, on a certain day in the distant past.

Arunachala Siva.i
