The cloud comes down to usurp ocean water to fill itself

Tiruppavai-4


Tamil Paashuram

Aazhi Mazhaikkanna! Ondrum Nee Kai Karavel

Aazhiyull Pukku Mugandhu Koda Aatthu Ari

Oozhimudalvan Uruvam Pol Mey Karuthu

Paazhiy Am Tholudai Padmanabhan Kaiyyil

Aazhipol Minni Valampuripol Minru Adhirndhu

Thazhaadhe Sarngam Udiatha Saraamazhai Pol

Vazha Ulaginil Peydhidaay Nangalum

Margazhi Neerada Magizhndu-el or em paavaai.


Madabhushi Sridhar's English Poem 4


Rain God Varuna, continue to shower and

the cloud comes down to usurp ocean water to fill itself

to pregnant with water becomes dark, like Krishna.

Lotus in the navel, weapons in His two strong hands

Lightning Disc and Thunderous Conch

Like his bow fast releasing stream of arrows.

raining heavy to enrich and rejuvenate the world,

Come on, friends, let us bathe in Margali Rain.


Meaning:


Third, fourth and fifth Paashurams symbolise the Sandhya Vandan at three times in a day. Great preacher Sri Bhashyam Appalacharya says, pray Mitra (Aruna) in the morning, Varuna in the evening and the Sun at noon. Chinna Jeeyar says Goda penned Tiruppavai to awaken the good qualities among the people and inspire them to work together for betterment of the society and the country. Goda wanted the nation to be prosperous, peaceful, and people help one another, with the grace of God and His equal showering of kindness and knowledge. When Gopikaas prayed with all these qualities and sincerity, Cloud God rained enough of sacred water as if a good boon was granted to the devotees.
