Sri Vatapatrasayee Perumal
Translation of Paasuram #17 by Dr. V.K.S.N Raghavan:
Oh King NandagOpA , Our Sire and the one reputed for high charity in giving away many clothes, abundant water,and large quantity of food! Kindly awaken ! Oh Queen yasOdhA, the foremost scion among women of sterling character (lit. who are slim and firm like Vanjik Kombhu)! Oh Devi, who is the beacon light of all woman-kind! Please rise up! Oh Lord of Gods , who grew (into a gigantic form) and pierced through the space , and measured (with two steps) all the worlds! Please refrain from sleep and get up! Oh Prince BaladEvA ( the strong and powerful Lord) adorning the golden anklets of a Hero ! May Your younger brother and yourself get up without prolonging your sleep (uRangEl).
The essence according to Sri Mukkur Azhagiyasingar:
We must respond to human misery appropriately, even after taking refuge in the Lord through saranagathi. We should perform anna dhaanam (food distribution) to the poor, allieve thirst of the suffering (especially during the hot season), and donate clothes to those in need.
