Kalabeda, kola beda, husiya nidiyalu bedaMuniya beda, anyarige asahya padabedaThanna bannisabeda, idira aliyalu bedaIde antaranga shuddhi, ide bahiranga shuddhiIde namma koodala sangananolisuva pari.

Don't rob, Don't kill, Never ever lieDon't get angry, Don't think negative about othersDon't self describe, Don't tease othersThis is the way of self respect, this is the way to get respected by the world.This is the way of impressing my lord Koodala sangam deva.
