Tiruppavai - 11
« on: December 26, 2009, 11:13:02 AM »
The 11th song of Tiruppavai of AndaL, is sung today, the 11th
day of Margazhi, (Dhanur) month.

Gopas (cowherds) are those who have got fertile cows and robust calves and are capable of fighting valiant but honest wars with enemies.  O Peacock like girl, with a body like a golden creeper,
and snake-hill like bushy female organs! you are born in their clan.
Please wake up.  Your friends and relative-girls are waiting at the
portal to take you for bath.  We are singing the names of rain-cloud
like dark Kannan*, why are you not moving from bed nor speaking
to us but simply sleeping?  Kindly wake up and come with us early.

(* Kannan is the Tamil name for Krishna)

Arunachala Siva.
