TV Programme - Brindavanamum Nandakumaranum

TV Programme - Brindavanamum Nandakumaranum

In this morning’s episode of Brindavanamum Nandakumaranum, (Vijay TV, 630 am) Sri Muralidhara Swamigal’s interpretation to a few lines of the song “Aadaathu Asangaathu Vaa Kanna” was very beautiful!

This song was sung by Oothukkaadu Venkatasubbayier. Lord Krishna is said to have given darshan to         Sri Venkatasubbayier in the temple in Oothukkaadu and he had the privilege of having a vision of Kalinga Nardhanam of the Lord here!

Muralidhara Swamigal’s described as below:
Radha Kalyanam is usually celebrated with pomp in Thanjavur district in the month of Margazhi One such celebration coincided with the day of Thiruvadhirai. In the Oothukaadu temple, Lord Krishna is decorated beautifully and brought out in procession. Venkatasubbayier, sitting in the temple prakaram gets the description of the Lord from some young boys standing there and sings “ Swagatham Krishna, Saranagatham Krishna”, welcoming and prostrating before the Lord. Suddenly he is able to hear the noise of musical instruments like melam and nadaswaram along with the chanting of rudhram. He asks the boys what is happening and they explain that Lord Natarajar from the Shiva temple in Aavur close to Oothukaadu, is coming out in procession as it was Thiruvadhirai day.
Venkatasubbayier sings,

ஆடாது அசங்காது வா கண்ணா
உன் ஆடலில் ஈரேழு புவனமும்
அசைந்து அசைந்தாடுதே
எனவே, ஆடாது அசங்காது வா கண்ணா
ஆடலைக் காணத் தில்லை அம்பலதிறைவனும்
தன் ஆடலை விட்டு இங்கே கோகுலம் வந்தார்......

கனக மணி அசையும் உனது திரு நடனம்
கண் பட்டு போனால் மனம் புண் பட்டு போகுமே!

The interpretation given here by Sri Muralidhara Swamigal is
Krishna, to see your dance, Nataraja has stopped his dance and come here. But please do not dance because everybody will cast their eyes on you, especially Lord Shiva has three eyes and he will cast all his three eyes on you, so aadaathu asangaathu vaa kanna!
I have not heard such an endearing interpretation of this song before and liked it so much and hence sharing here!
Here is a dowloaded version of the song for your ears!
