The people who consider that they will live without any hindrance!
The people who consider that they will live throughout
…the end of their life-time without any hindrance
will not get agitated if they are stopped
…at the entrance where the rulers reside,
they will not take too much privilege
…that the ruler can't tolerate,
they will not retain the ruler's dues
…levied to them even by chance,
they will not decorate themselves
…with dress and ornaments equal to the ruler,
they will not go across the ruler's chamber
…to join with others!

கடைவிலக்கிற் காயார் கழிகிழமை செய்யார்
கொடையளிக்கட் பொச்சாவார் கோலநேர் செய்யார்
