- Dail In Number : 270-400-2000
- Access Code : 455395#
The Tiruppavai is a collection of thirty stanzas (paasuram) in Tamil Sung by Andal, incarnation of Sri Bhudevi, in praise of the God Tirumal or Vishnu during the month of Margazhi. It is part of Divya Prabandha, a work of the twelve Alvars, and is important in Tamil literature. The Priests in Vishnu temples chant these in Daily Aradhan everyday of the year. Margazhi month signifies end of Dakshinayana.
It always starts on December 16th or 15th every year. For all Devas, it signifies the beginning of the day. " Of all the months the month Ma:rga si:rsha is Me " declared Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita. This is a holy month. Whatever Divine activity that is taken up during this month will yield the best results. Goda, or Anda:l, a small 5 year old girl, conducted a vratham to marry Lord Krishna,during this month and was successful in her mission.
She sang the greatness of the Lord in 30 songs, a song a day and submitted the garland of 30 songs to Lord Krishna. Each song is called as Pa:vai in Tamil. The garland of these 30 songs is called as Thiruppa:vai where Thiru stands for 'Holy'and pAvai is a vratham, a penance or vow. Tiruppavai Vratam is the substance of WHOLE VEDA and whoever wish to enjoy the divine Experience, wish to pray for the welfare of the world, should take in part in this vratam get enlightened with the divine knowledge filled in these Pasurams.
