Sri Andal Rangamannar Thirumanjanam
Translation of Paasuram #6 by Dr. V.K.S.N Raghavan:
Awaken , Oh Young girl! Even the birds have woken up and are chirping about the arrival of the morning. Don’t You hear the loud and sacred sound from the white conch being blown at the temple of our Lord , who rides on the divine GarudA ? Oh Young girl ! Wake up! The Yogis and Sages with minds known for uninterrupted contemplation of our great Lord celebrated for His adhbhutha leelais such as:
(1) destroying evil Poothanai by suckling her poisonous milk-bearing breast and at the same time sucking her life away
(2) destroying a cunning asuran , who came in the form of a cart by splintering him into pieces with a swift kick from His tiny (baby) toe .
He (Our Lord) is the primal cause of the whole Universe. He sleeps on AdhisEshan in Yoga NidhrA at the milky ocean. The Yogis and sages have now come out of their meditation slowly and are reciting the name of Lord Hari loudly for seven times. The crescendo of that Hari Naama UccharaNam resounds like thunder and enters into our hearts and pleases us. Does not that aravam enter your heart too? Oh Young girl! Please Awaken and join us in the nOnbhu!
The essence according to Sri Mukkur Azhagiyasingar:
“We should arise before dawn in the sacred month of Margazhi and utter “Hari! Hari!” for the banishment of our sins, for acquisition of all auspiciousness, and to posess a mid free of doubts and confusion.”
