Sri Kallazhagar, Madurai

Translation of Paasuram #14 by Dr. V.K.S.N Raghavan:

(The maidens awaken another group-leader). Already it is day-dawn , for even the Senkazhuneer flowers(red lotuses) have bloomed and Aambal flowers have closed their buds, in the small tank of your back-yard garden. The saints with ochre-robes and white teeth have started to visit their respective holy shrines for blowing the conch. Oh our Lady who boasted (by word of mouth) yesterday that you will come and awaken us at first! Now, please get up! You are not ashamed; you are but a chatterer. Let us sing the glory of the Lord of lotus-like eyes (pankayak kaNNan), who holds aloft on His mighty hands, the conch and the discus (the symbol of His supermacy among all gods).

The essence according to Sri Mukkur Azhagiyasingar:

“We must go daily to the temple of Sriman Narayana, offer Him our obeisances, and recite stotras in His praise, independent of our busy schedules or other inconveniences.”
