Most Gracious ILites, Now here we go with the 21st Paasuram of Thiruppavai. In this verse Aandal wakes up the Lord Himself. I love this verse because it talks of the right attitude with which we should approach God. As of now we approach God treating him as our partner in our evil deeds, our lawyer, our power of attorney holder and at times even our henchman. Aandal says "We have come to your house as your enemies, defeated and disgraced by you." We behaved like your enemies because we thought foolishly that we can manage our affairs and even those of the world with our bloated egos and swollen intellects. Time proved us wrong. We have now realised that we cannot do any thing unless we have your grace. This realisation first humiliated us but then humbled us too. Like an enemy defeated and disgraced we are waiting at your doorstep. Please come to rescue us, Lord.

As the cows, like generous donors, go on giving! Ye, son of the man, who owns such cows, Now is the time for you to wake up! You, who are, forever focussed on those Who are devoted to you! Please get up! The great being, the very presence in this world In the form of efferverscent light, wake up! We have come to you like your foes! Who were humbled and disgraced by you! Who devoid of any strength are waiting at your gate! To fall at your feet and beg for your love! So have we come, singing your praises!
