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.”
