Dear Mr.Ramki,

Could you post the final composition of Adisanka just before his mukthi at Kanchi? He did original lyric in sanskrit. I heard this exact word-to-word translation done in the song 'Tripurasundari.. chandira nizhal nee, Imayenum soundarya lahari...' sung by KJ.Yesudas in tamil film 'Adisankarar'. Could you publish the original and translation please?
