Citing the vision vividly,
Listen carefully to what I have to say,
Listen well to be blessed graciously,
Discard bad spells of the life lived,
Be awarded subtle spiritual initiation,
Heartfelt joy as I made you to realize my son!
Being direct disciple if Sage Agasthiyar and its tutelage,
Having named as Nagappan and Vaalai Sitthar,
Shall be also bestowed previously as Vaalai Sitthar Nagappan,
Awaiting to be initiated lovingly by us!
