Hurt not, donate as much as you can

Tiruppavai -2

Tamil Paashuram

Vaiyathu Vazhveerkal! Nanum Nam Pavaikku

Seyyum Kirisaikal Keleero! Paarkadalul

Paiyya-th-thuyindra param Adi Paadi

Neyyunnom Paal Unnom Naatkale Neeradi

Maiy-itt Ezhudom Malar Ittu Naam Mudiyom

Seyyadana Seyyom Thee Kkuralai Senrodhom

Iyamum Pichaiyum Aandanaiyum Kaikaatti

Uyyumarenni Ugandhu-el-or-empaavaai

Madabhushi Sridhar's English Poem 2

For bliss of world, come dear, join this divine mission.

To sing at the lotus feet of Vaikuntha Natha of Milk Ocean

Forsake ghee and milk and forget not bathing in early hours.

Forsake flowers and eyeliner, avoid give facial make up.

Listen to elders, do not do the don'ts, do only the good.

Hurt not, donate as much as you can.

For salvation, engage with noble thoughts, awake, let us all go.


In her first Paashuram (Poem No.1) Goda explains the Naaraayana Tatwa as His first location, Sthana. The Lord told Gopikaas about the ultimate, omnipotent, and omnipresent power of Naaraayana. His omnipresence is indicated by names Vishnu, Vasudeva, and Naaraayana. Vishnu means one who pervades the universe. Vasudeva signifies that he resides and shines in every inch of the creation.

Second song of Goda discloses that second abode of Bhagavan, that is Paalakadali, the Ocean of Milk. He is smaller than the smallest, Annu (micro cell) among the Annus, and at same time bigger than the biggest, Mahat or Brihat. He is the embodiment of five elements. Body of every creature consists of the same five elements. Earth is one of those five. It is difficult to be peaceful on this Earth.
