Kattru Karavai Kanangal: Thiruppavai Pasuram Day 11 Upanyasams

Srivilliputtur Sri Andal Neeratta Utsavam

Today, December 26, 2016 is Day 11 of Margazhi masam. The eleventh pasuram of Thiruppavai, Kattru Karavai Kanangal, is to be recited today.

Margazhi month assumes special significance for Srivaishnavas. Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita says masanam margashirso aham (of months, I am Margazhi). Of the 12 sub-Vyuhas which are representative of the 12 months beginning from the Tamil month of Margazhi, Kesava is the lord for the month of Margazhi.

Most importantly, the month derives its auspiciousness primarily due to its association with ThiruppAvai. It was during Margazhi that Sri Andal observed the pious Pavai Nombu for Sriman Narayanan and composed the 30 pasurams of Thiruppavai for  the ujjeevanam (upliftment) of jeevatmas like us. Thiruppavai is very sacred and all our Acharyas have given commentaries on this prabhandam. The very fact that Swami Ramanuja was called ‘ThiruppAvai Jeeyar’ because of his deep attachment to this, illustrates the special place Thiruppavai had with Swami Ramanuja. In this Dhurmuki Varusham, the Margazhi month began on December 16, 2016.

For the benefit of Anudinam readers, we bring detailed Tamil commentary, musical recitation and detailed upanyasam audio by various vidwans (scholars) for each pasuram. It may be noted that the audio files are also available at www.sravanam.org

The following is an article about the eleventh pasuram (Kattru Karavai Kanangal)…

In this pasuram a girl who is immersed in Krishna-bhakthi is woken up. She is addressed as belonging to the family of cowherds who are always engaged in milking and taking care of cows but if attacked by enemies they are excellent warriors. Addressing her as delicate as a creeper, they ask why she is hiding inside the ant-hill like a cobra? They ask her to come and join them to sing about The One who has the hue of rain-bearing clouds, and dance like a peacock with its feathers spread out. They ask her to wake up, shake off her sleep and join them .They urge her not to be without stirring or speaking.
