Sri Andal Thiruppavai !! Pasuram – 18 !!

Jai Sriman Narayana !!

In this verse, Sri Andal and the young maidens assembled in the early hours of dawn in the Palace of Nandagopa awaken Nappinnai, daughter in-law of Nandagopa and consort of Lord Krishna.  Sri Andal describes the strong arms and physical strength of Nandagopa as equivalent to an elephant.  Sri Andal requests Nappinnai to wake up and enlightens Nappinnai who has long plait of beautiful hair which diffuses the intense fragrances, about the rooster’s cries on the arrival of day break and the chirping of cuckoos settled in the jasmine shrubs.   Sri Andal reveals their intention to sing praising the glories of Lord Krishna and requests to open the door to Nappinnai whose hands has close resemblances to lotus due to the intimate association with Lord Krishna and with all those clattering noises of bangles in her hand.

Undhu Madha Kalitran Odadha Thol Valiyan
Nandagopan Marumakale Nappinnai
Kandham Kamazhum Kuzhali Kadai Thiravai
Vandhu Yengum Kozhi  Azhaithanakan Madhavi
Panthalmel Pal Kal Kuyilinangal Koovina Kan
Pantharvirali Un Maithunan Peyar Pada
Chenthamarai Kaiyyal Seerar Valai Olippa
Vanthu Thiravai Magizhdhelor Empavai
Jai Sriman Narayana !!
