Thiruppavai - Day 27

Thiruppavai - Day 27

Here Andal says how they will complete the nombu

கூடாரை வெல்லும்சீர்க் கோவிந்தா! உன்தன்னை
பாடிப் பறைகொண்டு யாம்பெறும் சம்மானம்;
நாடு புகழும் பரிசினால் நன்றாக,
சூடகமே தோள்வளையே தோடே செவிப்பூவே
பாடகமே என்றனைய பல்கலனும்  யாம் அணிவோம்;
ஆடை உடுப்போம்; அதன்பின்னே பாற்சோறு
மூடநெய் பெய்து முழங்கை வழிவார
கூடியிருந்து குளிர்ந்தேலோ ரெம்பாவாய்

Govinda! who defeats all evil, please bless us. We will adorn ourselves with bangles on our hands, armlets on our upper arms, lovely earrings for our ears. We will also wear new clothes. We will have food with ghee overflowing upto our elbows and celebrate with all! We will sing your praise and complete our nombu!

  1. Shri KV Satagopan points out this significance of this pasuram.
    "The Govindha Naama SankIrthanam starts first in this paasuram ( Koodarai vellum SEER GOVINDHAN) and reaches a crescendo during the next two paasurams :"KURAIVONRUMILLAATHA GOVINDHAA" in "KaRavaikaL pin senRu " paasuram and " iRRai paRai KoLLvAnananRu KANN GOVINDHA " in "SiRRam SiRukAlE" Paasuram. The Phala Sruthi is sung in ANDAL's own words ( Bhattar PirAn Godhai Sonna) in the FINAL , Vangak Kadal Paasuram.Until the final (30th)
    Paasuram ,the Gopis were at the front end awakening their fellow Gopis, conversing with the occupants of Nandha Bhavanam and finally addressing the Lord Himself. The paasurams were Gopi-Mukham"
