Keesu Keesenru Engum: Thiruppavai Pasuram Day 7 Upanyasams

Srivilliputtur Sri Andal Neeratta Utsavam8

Today, December 22, 2013 is Day 7 of Margazhi masam. The seventh pasuram of Thiruppavai, Keesu Keesenru Engum, 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 seventh pasuram (Keesu Keesenru Engum)…

This Pasuram begins with keesu. keesu – the shrill notes produced by Bharadwaja birds. They create so much noise that it is impossible to sleep. The other sound is produced by the churning of curds by the cowherdesses. Added to the churning sound is the sound produced by their amulets and necklaces. The gopis with fragrant tresses are busy with their churning which is done early in the morning. Andal addresses the friend as their leader and invites her to sing about Narayana and Kesava. Kesavan means the slayer of Kesi- the asura who came in the guise of a horse. Kesava also means One with beautiful tresses. Kesava nama destroys klesham (sadness). It is a practice to repeat Kesava before going out of the house. Describing the multitude of sounds both outside and inside this girl is urged to wake up.
