Sri Andal, Srivilliputhur
Translation of Paasuram #22 by Dr. V.K.S.N Raghavan:
(The Young girls pray to the Lord in the strain of defeated kings surrendering to the emperor, who is the supreme sovereign) Oh Lord! We have come to You just as the kings of the vast beautiful Earth, who stay contented in large groups at the foot of Your bed (throne) after renouncing their haughtiness and self-esteem. Oh Lord! Will You not look at us, with Your gentle and exquisite eyes, resembling the half-blossomed lotus similar to a small kinkiNi (jewel-like little bells) opening little by little (gradually)? If You direct Your glance at us, with Your pair of beautiful eyes that resemble the rising sun and the moon, we will be freed from the curse of sins (past, present and future).
The essence according to Sri Mukkur Azhagiyasingar:
“We must cast aside our egos and prostrate before the devotees of the Lord.”
