Pullum Silambina Kan: Thiruppavai Pasuram Day 6 Upanyasams

Srivilliputtur_Thiruvaadipooram_2013_26

Today, December 21, 2013 is Day 6 of Margazhi masam. The sixth pasuram of Thiruppavai, Pullum Silambina Kan, 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 Vijaya Varusham, the Margazhi month began on December 16, 2013.

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 sixth pasuram (Pullum Silambina Kan)…

In Pasuram-6 Andal describes the early morning scene and urges her friend to wakeup. The air is filled with the sound of chirping birds, the sound of the white conch is heard from the temple of Garuda’s Swami (Sriman Narayana). Not finding any sign of her stirring, Andal tries to scare her into waking up. She talks of Poothana who came to harm their beloved Krishna but got delivered and Shakatasuran who came in the form of a cart and met his end by Krishna’s kicks. Not wanting to scare her further Andal talks about The One reclining on the ocean of milk and asks her not to jump out of her bed in a startled condition. Andal tells her to follow the path of munis and yogis who wake up slowly chanting the name of Hari seven times. Andal describes these sages as satisfied with what they have and of a composed frame of mind. Though there are many layers of meaning to Andal’s pasurams the simple message is how to wake up and when.
