Tiruppavail of Saint Andaal – Pasuram 6


Long time, year after year, I resolve to translate one Song ( Paasuram ) a day from the Tiruppaavai, written by Saint Andaal ( the only female Viashnava Saint among the 12 Alwars ) . This year, after missing first 5 days I made an effort finally.

Find it below.

A humble offering at the feet of Saint Andaal .

புள்ளும் சிலம்பினகாண் புள்ளரையன் கோயிலில்
வெள்ளை விளிசங்கின் பேரரவம் கேட்டிலயோ
பிள்ளாய் எழுந்திராய் பேய்முலை நஞ்சுண்டு
கள்ளச் சகடம் கலக்கழியக் காலோச்சி
வெள்ளத் தரவில் துயிலமர்ந்த வித்தினை
உள்ளத்துக் கொண்டு முனிவர்களும் யோகிகளும்
மெள்ள எழுந்(து) அரியென்ற பேரரவம்
உள்ளம் புகுந்து குளிர்ந்தேலோ ரெம்பாவாய்.

puLLum silambina kaaN

veLLai viLisangin pEraravam kEttilaiyO
piLLaay ezhundhiraay

pEy mulai nancundu
kaLLac cakatam kalakkazhiyak kaalOcci
veLLaththaravil thuyilamarndha viththinai

Look ! The temple birds preach sweet !
Hear ! White conch blows forth primeval !
From inner sanctum of Holy Bird’s Lord !
Don’t you hear any ? Up my child !

Lord who drank from poisoned breasts,
Lord who kicked off monstrous killer carts,
Lord who reposes on waters atop serpent,
Lord the cause seed of the Universe,
Lord the image Yogis, Munis keep in,

To Him, do chanting ‘Hari’ in happy chorus,
To Him, do in-turned our hearts cool, abide,
To Him, Prayer mine, awake my dears you too !
