Sri Thirumurugan Thevaram

Similar to the Shavite text, Thevaram which was composed by the great Shavite Saints like Sri Sambandar, Appar, and Sundarar, during the medieval period, a group of Murugan Devotees have composed the great Text, which is popularly known as “SRI THIRUMURUGAN THEVARAM”, and it is as popular as the Shaivite Text, Thevaram. These songs can be recited in the temples of Lord Muruga, especially in his six famous abodes situated at Tamil Nadu.

Some of the verses from the Sacred Text, Sri Thirumurugan Thevaram, are as follows:-

Oh My Dear Lord Muruga. My heart is filled up with full of joy whenever your devotees utter the name OM Muruga. Oh Muruga, you are the divine consort of Ma Valli and Ma Devasena.
