She was deeply in love with Lord Vishnu, having grown up avidly listening to his stories narrated by her father. She had decided she would only marry Lord Vishnu, as no human man could compare. Now, in the Hindu tradition any offerings to God must be prepared in the cleanest manner possible so when her father caught sight of strands of hair tangled in his garland one morning, he was very dismayed.
He realised what his daughter must have done, discarded the worn garland for a new one and left for the temple. In her work, the reader can find the essence of the Hindu teachings.
An excerpt from Thiruppavai, a tamil devotional poem attributed to Andal. The Lord Madhava, who churned the oceans for the devas, one who killed the demon Kesi, one whose face is like the moon and one who is worshipped by the women of the cowherd clan who are dressed with fine ornaments, was worshipped by Sri Andal of Srivilliputtur thru these garland of thirty tamil verses that are greatly enjoyable. All devotees who worship the Lord whose four shoulders that are strong, whose eyes are bright red and who is the embodiment of all riches with these verses with similar zeal, will forever obtain the grace and blessings of the Lord and be supremely happy.
Thus we come to the conclusion of Thiruppavai. It is said that the Thiruppavai can be chanted on all days, not just during Margazhi although chanting this during Margazhi does have a distinct charm. Special mention to everyone who has helped me with the posts hroughout the season. Thus Andal finally gets down to asking for her boon. This is the most famous of the verses of the Thiruppavai and this verse and the next one are often recited in isolation often in the daily prayers of most people.
This is indeed a very powerful plea and shows the intensity of the devotion that Sri Andal had for Krishna. So Andal says to the Lord, let me tell you the objective of why we come to you in this early early morning, bow at your lotus feet and sing your praise!
Born alongwith us in the cowherd community who look after the cows to earn a living, you cannot refuse to take our worship or bestow your grace on us. What we have come for us not to just get your grace and boons today alone. What we seek is this — Forever and ever, in the next seven births that we may take we should be privileged to have a relationship with you in all your avatars and we should be beholden and offer worship to You. You should give us this as a boon and also ensure that any other desires of ours other than this are removed from our minds.
So this is the final boon — that we should worship and serve the Lord without any other thought or desire in our minds, not just for today but for ever and ever. Unwavering, unquestioning, totally dedicated faith in Krishna at all times and occasions is what should rule our minds.
She now feels it is the right time to also reiterate the context, reintroduce themselves and also ask for forgiveness before asking for the real boon. So she goes on to say we are the simple cowherds who drive the cattle to the forest and thus earn our daily bread, we are without much intelligence, but have been wonderfully fortunate to be born in this clan and be in your midst, You are the truly blemishless Govinda, the bonds and relationship that we have with you cannot ever be broken, We are small girls and it is possible that out of our enthusiasm and deep love for you, we might have taken liberties with you and in calling your name in singular, so please pardon and forgive us.
