ParthaSarathy Perumal




Dearest ParthaSarathy,
At Your feet beautiful,
My heart is a flower little;
O Ruler of the World! My Lord Wonderful!
O Dark-skinned lover! May i forever at that height settle!

    Undhu madakallitran odadha tholvaliyan,

    Nandagopalan marumagale nappinnai,

    Kandham kamalum kuzhali kadaithiravaay,

    Vandhu engum kozhi alaithanakaan, Maadhavi panthal mel

    Pala kaal kuyilinanagal koovinakkan!

    Pandhar Virali! Un Maithunan peyar paada!

    Senthamarai kaigalaal seerar valaieluppa.

    Vandhu thiravaay magilndhelor empaavay!

  2. y little version of what the English meaning is:

    O Nappinai! The Daughter-in Law of Nandagopalan
    O! Dear Woman with the sweet fragrance in Your hair-Kindly open the door!
    We are here, the birds of different breeds,
    Singing His praises in His garden...
    O! With Your lotus fingers, come open the door,
    So that we may sing the praises of Your husband whom we adore,
    Even as the bangles on Your lotus hands dance as You open the door,
    Be pleased with us, and come! come and open Your door!

    so sorry for the divert here.
    Wanted ParthaSarathy Perumal (PSP) to hear these lines. :))
    btw, the reason we ask Thaayar to lead us to Him, is quite simple:
    He may have the heart to turn, or atleast, "pretend" to turn a deaf ear to us, but those games He can't play with Thaayar. :)
    If He is the ruler of the worlds, She rules Her husband :))
    So, our Aandal here is quite wise (why wouldn't she be? She IS His wife, incarnate to sing His praises as a Gopi, and to be with Periyazhwar, Her father, a great devotee) She first brings Thaayar on her side!
    btw, Periyazhwar was (is) one of the greatest of His devotees, but i dunno if you know about the Alwars at all. :)

    btw, PSP here is our arrow- marks-wounded Krishna (i referred a video, remember??)
    He (the pic) is the moolavar (i guess sometime talking about our angry Krishna, i mentioned about the Utsavar-Moolavar thing to you. The video was utsavar. This is a pic of the "inside Krishna".
    Anyways, His name is Venkatakrishnan, but i always refer to Him as PSP.
    now, tell me DP: isn't He stupendous, awesome?
    Won't you come to Chennai just to stare into His face? :))

  5. Ooh, that was just delightful!

    "He may have the heart to turn, or atleast, "pretend" to turn a deaf ear to us, but those games He can't play with Thaayar. "

    Thanks for sharing that! I never knew this.. It was really nice to know. Never heard about anything from this perspective before

    Thanks for sharing all of this :) I'm sure Krishna enjoyed it too!
    And the poem you wrote was also very very nice. I loved the part about the heart being a little flower. That was so endearing :)

  6. //Thanks for sharing that! I never knew this.. It was really nice to know. Never heard about anything from this perspective before//

    LOL, it wasn't a perspective of an sort, but yes, it was pulling His feet! :))

    But, yes, it is true that Thaayar is the Ruler of the Supreme Ruler! :)

    btw, you do know what "Aandal" means, na?
    it means "the one who ruled over Krishna Himself"

  8. By the way, This Krishna is special to me. Once in my dream, He Hugged me and patted me on my back, near the shoulder. He was laughing all the while. :)

    When ever I see this Krishna.... Don't have words to express.

  10. //ee.. your heart wants to be a little flower at His feet. Mine wants to be a Crown on His head. //
    LOL..My heart is totally in love.
    It is at the feet of it's ruler. :))
    If my heart were the crown, then it'd have to struggle to see His face.
    But, at His feet, it can see His face and relish its beauty completely :)
