Ungal Puzhakadai Thottathu: Thiruppavai Pasuram Day 14 Upanyasams

Srivilliputtur_Thiruvaadipooram_2013_22

Today, December 29, 2016 is Day 14 of Margazhi masam. The fourteenth pasuram of Thiruppavai, Ungal Puzhakadai Thottathu, 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 fourteenth pasuram (Ungal Puzhakadai Thottathu)…

 


The girl addressed in this pasuram had promised to wake up everyone but was still sleeping. They tell her that the Aambal flowers (night queen) had withered and the lotus and water-lily in her backyard garden had bloomed, the sanyasis in ochre robes and pearly teeth were on the way to the temple. So, dear child it is high time you woke up and joined us to sing the praises of The One with beautiful hands holding the shanku (conch) and chakram (disc), and having eyes like the lotus.
