of Andal’s
Thiruppavai. For those who wish to read the text in other languages, please go tohttp://www.prapatti.com Andal is considered to be Sr
idevi’s amsaavataaram. She was born at Srivilliputoor (close to Kanchipuram, also the city where Indira Gandhi’s son and Indian Prime
Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated), as the daughter of PeriyAzhwar. She is alsothe only female among the 12 SriVaishNavite Azhwars. She longed for union withHer Lord and insisted that she should be taken to Srirangam where she eventuallymerged with Lord Ranganatha. You can read more about Andal at the link givenabove (or click here). The immortal Thiruppavai, attributed to Her, is a divine composition, filled with deep esoteric meanings, on which many commentaries havebeen written over the centuries.In the first pasuram, ANDAL invites Her friends for the Vratham observance. In thesecond paasuram, She spells out the rites to be observed and the deeds to beabandoned. In the third Paasuram, She describes the fruits of the Vratham. Theaacaaryas who have blessed us are considered to be like the milk giving cows withoverflowing udders. In the fourth Paasuram, Andal is directing her prayers to Varuna(actually to KrishNa who had the complexion darker than the darkest rain bearingclouds), the god of the rains, and comparing the bounty bestowing by aacaryas to thebounteous rains showered by Varuna. In Pasuram 5 Andal tells us that He wouldcompletely burn off all of our accumulated sins much like a fire burns pieces of strawthrown into it.
