..1.Madhi niraintha nannaall…for the soul it is a good day as he understands all about himself,The Paramatma and their relation as briefly stated in Thirumandram…”Neeraada Pothuveer “–the purpose of getting the body is to serve Him here and here after..neeradavathu is like sunai aadal-actually Krishna samsleshanam-“Poduveer Podumino “-all those who have such craving for kainkaryam are qualofied to join her..on hearing this al the faces of her friends became bright “madhi niraitha “.the moon is not only in the sky,but all over their faces..”seer malhum aaypaadi selva sirumeerkaal”–the prosperity of Srivaishnava consists of love  towardsHim and enjoyment of His company..Nanda gobanin vigilance in gaurding Him, and yasodhai’s over-chellams are said in “kodum thollilan —ellam singam “.Koorvel also means our sankalpam should be sharp and focussed..kodum thozli is removal of our sins..elam singam will chase away our sins and enemies….Aahasa thaamarai polvan yentru “kaarmeham,sem kann, kadir madiyam pol muhathaan “..yenkiraal…Upaaya svaroobam “Naaraayananney” ,adhikaarai svarubam “Namakkey “and pala svaroobam “parai tharuvaan ” are the key notes–only His grave and not karma, bakti, gjana yogam will fetch Him.What Krishnan tried to preach over 700 sloakas in Geethai here she says in simple ,understandable words, right in the first paasuram…the sacred month “maarkazli “has “kesavan ” as presiding deity..”parai tharuvaan “=He will bless us with all required tools for kainkaryam, such as Gjanam,seelam and other atma gunams..this paasuram states the same as “kannan kazlalinai nannum manam vudaiyeer yennum thirunaamam thinnam naarannamey “..Thiruvaaymozli 10-5-1..In this paasuram she stresses ananya seshadvam,ananya sarannadvam and ananya praapyadvamHer maha visvaasam is seen in “narayananey, namakkey, parai tharuvaan “..essence of Thirumandram..

..2..In the second paasuram, after getting lots of friends to join her in kainkaryam, she gives do’s and donot’s as the leader of the group..”naamum “–yentru we are all longing for His company ..”paraman adi paadi ” yentru Thiruvadiyil thodangukiraal..avanai thuthipathu thaan mudal kadamai yenkiraal..discard all worldly desires like eating ghee,drinking milk..bath early in the morning..kannukku maiyum thalaikku poovum eppo kollaamal-thanithu erukkum pothu kollaamal- erukkanum..these  decorations are only for His enjoyment..”seyyatha seyyom “..we will follow all traditions and will never do whatever our elders did not do..”theek kurallai sentru othom “-.never speak ill of othetrs–we whould be ready to do charity..we should impart knowledge of Paramatma to all those who need it…”vuyuumaaru yenni “–constantly think about upliftment..keep our minds filled with peace and happiness…vidubabahalaiyum pattrubahalaiyum sankalipithu kollu kiraarkal ethaal….manam(vuyyum aaru yenni,vuhanthu)),vaakku(paadi ), kaayathaal(neeraadi,kai kaatti ) seyya venndiyathai arulinaal.manathaal syya koodath(seyyathana seyyom-we will not think about other stray things),vaayaal solakoodatha(thee kuralai sentrothom),kaayathaal seyyatha (ney vunnom, paal vunnom ) enbathaiyum arulukiraal..seyyathana–para himsai, bagavatha, baagavatha abacharam, mudaliyana..now nama sangeerthanam is the only thaaraham…Aiyam refers to our sambavanai to acharyas and pitchai refers to our offerings to sanyasis..singing bagavan’s perumai is also aiyam and bagavatha perumai is pitchai..aanthanaiyum–ellai yennathu yeenthaley nantru -polaVuyum aaru-may also mean the six guide lines given by Deva Perumaal to Raamanujar through Thirukatchi nambi..aaru may also mean six mangala vastu for women–metti, vallai,mookuthi, thirumangalyam, thilagam, pushpam..”Vaiyathu vaazlveerkaal ” yentru elloraiyum koopudukiraal..

..3..Even though she wants to be detached from the worldly riches, she is praying for rain –considering these also as His riches–“sarve janah sukhino bhavantu “–every one should be happy as e daily pray for..thangal ninbu norkka anumathi koduthavarkal anubavikka..mudalil Thiruvikraman–ongi vullahalantha vuthaman–avanin thirunamam -paada sollukiraal..Thiru namam is more powerful than Him..”govinda ” yentra peyar thaan pudavai suranthathu Draubadikku..eppadi peyr  paadinaal neer mallaiyum paal mallaiyum niraiya varum yenkiraal..”nengaatha selvam “–avanudan nithya kainkaryam pera eppadi thirunama sangeerthanam pannanum yenkiral..”mum maari”–three rains in a month -right amount of rain-theengintri erukkum.in recognition of vedic scholars,righteous king and pathivirathas..the water poured on the hands of vamana,kamandala jalam of brahma who washed His thiruvadi and ganga jalam that flowed from there are also the three maaries..nine days of sunshine with a day of rain is the ideal cycle..Saattri neeraduvathu=ubadesam of rahasyartham by acharyas and we following the same..mummaari refers to Acharya’s ubadesam,  Study of Divya Prabandam and Pilgimmage to Divyadesams..ongu perum sennel vuoodu kayal=being in the land of Aallavandaar and Raamanujar and our own acharyas ..Pothil porri vanndu kann vallarppa=Emberumaan in our lotus-hearts happily sleeping as we become His true adiyaars..mullai pattri..kudam nirraikum–goshti of Sishyas and sowlapya, sowseelya gunams of acharyas..vallal perm pasukal..these acharyas giving all rahasya arthams to us without expecting any thing from us.the udders are vedartham,smirthi, sathivika puranams, aazlvaar paasurams.

With the three paasurams, she gave us all three mandrams …and benefits of learning and following them. now let us see the others.

,,4..Varuna bagavan comes and takes instructions from this gopi, who has mastered all three mantras..she asks him to go to the mid-ocean, suck all water ,oli seythu aahasathil yeri, karumai niram konndu,minnal ediyudan koodiya mazlaiyaal ,without any delay, pour over all places to bring prosperity everywhere..Aandaal, being Piraati, commands acharyas to dig into vedas and ubanishads-Aazliyul pukku–ella arthangalum therinthu-muhanthu kodu,bless sishyas with rahayarthangal-ontru kai karavel–She also praises them for having kaarunnyam like Him-vuruvam pol mey karuthu-,their brilliance arises from their divya gjanam-aazli pol minni-,their ubanyasam -gjana ananda vishya gosham-is like “valam puri pol nintru athirnthu-gjana varusham kodukka solkiraal…kaalla meham called Nammaazlvar plunged into Daya ocean and showered on Nathamuni mountain,and that Daya rain flowed thro two streams named Uyyakonndar and Manakkaal nambi,and joined Aallvandaar river,which continued as Raamanujar lake and reached many thrio 74 madathibathikal yennum madahu to reach all of us continuouesly even today thro their vamsaavalli acharyas..Aazl mazlai kannan” yentrathu varuna bagavanin antaratmavaha erukkum nirvahanai kurikkum..Here Aandaal uses “zhli”..eleven times just like Peraalvar “kuzlal erunndu”2-6-11 paasuram ten times..
