Some Kudhambai sidhar songs in english


Some Kudhambai sidhar  songs  in english

Translated  by
P.R.Ramachander



Kuthambai Sidhar  is  one of  the 18 Sidhas  . It seems he was only son   to his parents and was brought  up  like a girl waering an ear globe(Kudhambai) .He is famous for his three lined   philosophical verses  , all addressed  as question   to a girl   called  Kudhambai.  It seems he attained  Maha  Samadhi in Mayiladuthurai  . Here    are translation  of some of his verses  in to english . His verses   are very difficult to translate     and what I have done  is only an attempt
