7.Kollan ulai pola kothikudhadi yen vayiru
Like the black-smiths furnace my stomach boils my dear
Nil yendru sonnal nilai niruthha kooduthillai
When I ask (the life) to stop (without departing;dying) that state of retention (the art of wilfull-death known in Sanskrit as iccha mrityu) doesn’t materialize
“with extreme determination, i try to master the state of sustaining the body with life that i leave behind in the state of samadhi
Nil yendru solliyallo nilai niruthha vallarkku
For those who had mastered the art of retention of life (within the body)
Koll yendru vandha yaman yen kanamma!kudiyodi pohano!
Even yama (the Lord of death) who’d come to kill and take away the life my dear,would scamper away with his assistants
to master this art is to attain immortality of the body, my sweet heart, kundalini!”
“Ootrai sadalamadi uppirundha pandamadi

I would get rid of this body of loose flesh my dear,and mingle with Your (Gods) feet!
there is the science of being able to sustain the body infinitely through siddha medicines and if i knew this science, this higher wisdom will instead wish me to go beyond the desire to keep this fleshy body and instead seek the body to be light!”
10.Payyoorilae irundhu pallhoorilae pirandhu
From the land of the bag (womb) I took birth in this forsaken-land
“from the karmic baggage i took birth as human
Meyooril povadharkku Vedanta veedu yerinaen

to go to my true home, i climbed above to the wisdom of oneness
Meyoorir povadharkku Vedanta veedu arindhal
To go to the True-land,if I were to realize the vedantic philosophy
Payyoorum meyoorum yen kanamma! Pallai mudiyavo!
The land of the bag and the true-land my dear,would be forsaken (the realized person doesn’t even yearn for heaven)!
upon reaching this wisdom of oneness, the desire for human birth reality and the desire for realms of oneness, both dissolved… at the state of turiya, the sleepless sleep, my sweet heart, kundalini!”
