A human can become god.

Manithan enbavan deivam aagalam

A human can become god.

(2)வாரிவாரி வழங்கும் போது வள்ளலாகலாம்
வாழைப் போல தன்னை தந்து தியாகியாகலாம்
உருகி ஓடும் மெழுகு போல ஒளியை வீசலாம்
vaari vaari vazhangumpodhu vallal agalam
vaalai pola thannai thanthu thyagi agalam
urugi odum melugu pola olaiyaai veesalam.

When he gives ( unconditionally and without any selfishness ( in scoops and heaps) ), he becomes a king (philanthropist),
Just like a banana tree ( whose every part is useful – signifying ultimate sacrifice) , one could sacrifice for the good of people and be remembered as a great human,
he could spread light ( all goodness and positive energy), like the wax in the candle that melts itself to spread light.

(3)ஊருக்கென்று வாழ்ந்த நெஞ்சம் சிலைகளாகலாம்
உறவுக்கென்று விரிந்த உள்ளம் மலர்களாகலாம்
oorukenru vaalntha nenjam silaigalagalam
uravukenru virindha ullam malargalagalam

the hearts (people) that lived for the welfare of the society may become (noble) statues ( as a mark of respect),
a person who opens up (helps in need) for a relationship will bear a heart that is as beautiful and pure as the beautiful flowers. ( emphasizing the importance of helping people around oneself and the concept of inclusion)

(4)யாருக்கென்று அழுத போதும் தலைவனாகலாம்
மனம்! மனம்! அது கோவிலாகலாம்
yaarukenru aludhapodhum thalaivanagalam
manam manam adhu kovil aagalam

When one cries for the problems of others and gives a helping hand, he becomes a great leader,
such a heart with all these qualities, becomes a temple.

(5)மனம் இருந்தால் பறவை கூட்டில் மான்கள் வாழலாம்
வழியிருந்தால் கடுகுக்குள்ளே மலையைக் காணலாம்
manam irundhal paravai koottil mangal vaalalam
vali irundhal kadugukulle malaiyaai kaanalam

If you have the heart then even in a bird’s nest you can accommodate a deer ( emphasizing that you are never too small to help, its all in the mindset),
if you have the vision/can see the path, then even in a grain of mustard ( something so small) you can envision a mountain ( something big) ( means that even in/with small thing , you can achieve great heights),

(6)துணிந்துவிட்டால் தலையில் எந்த சுமையும் தாங்கலாம்
குணம்! குணம்! அது கோவிலாகலாம்
thunindhu vittal thalaiyil endha sumaiyum thangalam
gunam gunam adhu kovil agalam

if you dare, then you can carry any amount of burden on your head ,
such a virtue or trait , will be considered equivalent to a temple
