SRIMAN NARAYANA, SRI LAKSHMI AMMA (DAYA DEVI) AND THE HOLIEST OF HOLY WORKS OF THE REVERENTIAL AZHWARS ( MYSTIC SAINTS ) OF THE SOUTH OF INDIA. ( Part 16 / 21)
Sri Andal amma ( Bhuma devi amma our dearest mother earth) Part 16 of 21
- As in our most adoring azhwars they took the role of a nayaki and also lovingly treated our lord Sri Krishna as a "SARVESHWARAN ( ALL IN ALL ) but in her case she made it very clear in the first instance itself, to everyone in her immediate circle including her father our dearest Peria azhwar that she will marry none in this mortal world but will merge only with the PARMAATMAN. She did not give any scope to anyone in this at all , she was very transparent and from the very first moment of her birth her divine most thoughts was to marry our Lord Sri Krishna just like our most loving Mira amma. She could not bear to even think of anyone else as a life partner. If this was not destined she was most willing to give up her life for SHE LIVED EVERY BILLIONTH OF A SECOND ONLY FOR OUR DEAREST LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA. SUCH IS A PURITY OF HER THOUGHTS AND HENCE SHE IS THE FOREMOST PATIVRATHA (MOST DEVOTIONAL WIFE ) OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.
She cries with pain, begs our lord, accuses him of his irresponsible behaviour, of a cruel heart , she runs to his most beloved wife NAPPINAI and begs her to intercede on her behalf , she does everything humanly possible to ensure she marries our lord Sri Krishna, in her 30 holiest of holy verses "TIRUPAAVAI" which is so lovingly sung by every devout srivaishnavite everyday and more so during Dhanur month ( December - January).
Every small child, women, men, young unmarried girls, seniors sing with the highest reverence her holiest of holy verses with the strongest and most unshakable faith that we too will reach our PARMAATMAN just like herself, one day which is the only right destination paved with absolute truth , dazzling splendour, and divine lamp of love.
Her pious outpourings are read in big devotional groups in temples and the highest credence of her works is during the whole month of Dhanur, our lord SriVenkatesa of holiest of holy Tirumala hills listens to her verses with the most happiness and Suprabhatam which is otherwise recited every morning at Brahmamuhurtam (early hours before 5 am) is not narrated during the month of Dhanur instead our most beloved Andal amma's pious verses are recited with the highest piousness. THIS IS THE PLACE HER DIVINE VERSES HAS IN THE LOTUS HEART OF OUR MOST DEAR PARMAATMAN LORD SRI KRISHNA. MOST EXALTED WORKS OF UTTER JOY AND BLISS.
- Our most beloved Andal amma too like our most adoring azhwars has spoken about Srivamana , SriTrivikrama and all other of his divine manifestations with great fondness and the glorification of each of his manifestation is very well brought out in her divine works. HER LOVE FOR LORD SRI RANGATHAN (NONE OTHER THAN OUR DEAREST LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA) OF DIVINE SRI RANGAM IS SUPREMELY UNBEATABLE AND SHE FINALLY MERGES WITH HIM.
- She dreams ( HOW FORTUNATE! IS OUR DEAREST MOTHER WHEN HER DREAMS MATERIALIZE, IT IS MENTIONED THAT OUR DREAMS ARE AN ETERNAL PART OF OUR SUB CONSCIOUS MIND AND HENCE THEY KEEP RECURRING AND MANIFESTING AS PER OUR CONSTANT THOUGHTS ) of marrying our lord Sri Govinda and the various minutest of minute details she mentions , just like any other bride desperately waiting for her bridegroom, her anxiety if he does not turn up in the last moment, the wonderful venue of the celestial wedding, the most auspicious decorations with beautiful scented flowers and the holy plantain leaves and the various age old rituals of the marriage function, the shyness at which she glances our lord Sri Krishna from the corner of her eyes not directly as any coy bride would , our lord Sri Krishna's majestic appearance on the royal elephants, his magnificent grandeur, his most superlative loving response to her equally amazing tenderness towards our lord and finally the most celestial transcendental union AFTER THE LONGEST WAIT WITH OUR DEAR MOST LORD SRI GOVINDA IS WORTH READING LAKHS , BILLION AND, COUNTLESS NAY INFINITY TIMES AND YET OUR HEART NEVER FILLS WITH SATIATION.
EACH ONE OF US CROSSING EVERY PARAMETERS OF DISTINCTION THE MALE AND THE FEMALE, THE SMALL AND THE BIG, THE SAINT AND THE GRAHASTA (HOUSEHOLDER), THE CHILD AND THE YOUNG MAIDEN FIND THE HIGHEST CONNECT WITH HER MOST FAULTLESS LOVE AND NONE OF US WANT TO LEAVE THE VENUE OF HER SUPER MARRIAGE FOR IT IS THE BEST WEDDING THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE HAS SEEN , WILL EVER SEE FOR NONE CAN MATCH OUR MOST BELOVED ANDAL AMMA'S BRILLIANCE AND HER UNPARALLELED STATUS AS THE SOLE QUEEN OF COSMOS.
HER LOVING MOST QUALITY THAT OF DAYA DEVI AMMA, HER HIGHEST LOVE SHE NURTURES FOR EACH ONE US , SHE IS THE ONE AND ONLY OUR DEAREST OF DEAR MOTHER FOR WHOM WE WILL LAY AND SURRENDER IN ITS ENTIRETY ALL THAT IS MATERIAL, TO EVENTUALLY REACH HER FOR SHE HAS ALREADY INTERCEDED ON OUR BEHALF WITH OUR LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA, IT IS ONLY A DELAY ON OUR PART AND UNNECESSARILY WE ARE KEEPING OUR DIVINE MOST PARENTS WAITING, IF ONLY WE LOVED THEM MORE THAN ANYTHING IN THE ALL THE WORLDS THEN THE FIRST THING WE ALL WILL HAVE TO DO NOW ITSELF IS TOTAL PRAPATI ( VOLUNTARY MOST LOVING UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER) TOWARDS OUR LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA , REST OUR ANDAL AMMA WILL FULLY TAKE CARE OF.
WE NEED TO PROVE TO OUR LORD SRI KRISHNA, ONLY OUR DEAREST ANDAL AMMA COULD DO WHAT NONE ELSE, FOR WE HAVE AT LAST SURRENDERED AT HIS DIVINE MOST BEAUTIFUL LOTUS FEET AND OUR WAITING TOO IS GETTING UNBEARABLE FOR US, JUST LIKE ANDAL AMMA'S FOR OUR LORD SRI GOVINDA WOULD BE VERY HAPPY THAT OUR DEAREST MOTHER, AS USUAL, IS ALWAYS SUCCESSFUL IN EACH OF HER ENDEAVOUR AND HIS LOVE FOR HER WILL FURTHER MULTIPLY MANIFOLD TIMES.
It is very rightly said in our scriptures , those of us , who lovingly recite all her divine works, and if we are unable to do so ( let me wholeheartedly admit and confess even I do not know to recite her divine most verses by heart from memory without referring to her Tirupaavai book but can relate to each of her divine action and holy words like I can connect to none in this entire universe , because am unable to recite flawlessly ,I listen with rapt attention to an audio recited by the sri vaishnavas at very regular intervals and meditate in total silence whilst I listen to her most divine verses being recited and beg her to forgive me for not able to recite her verses but also convey to her that despite not being able to recite her verses by heart , I listen to it, as a person who is lost in a huge desert and suddenly has managed to reach the oasis, it is like the thirstiest of thirsty when he gets one drop of water to drink it becomes a divine most nectar for that person ,the very same with me too, when I meditate on our most loving mothers divine verses she directly transports me to SriParmapadam and to our dear most one and only one LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA.
OUR ANDAL AMMA IS OUR ULTIMATE PROTECTOR, A FINAL REFUGE, WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE FAILS IN THIS UNIVERSE AND WE HAVE NO HOPE LEFT AT ALL, HER DAYA ( OCEAN OF COMPASSION) WILL LIKE A RAFT CARRY US, SURELY TO OUR DEAREST LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA ,FOR SHE WILL ENSURE, AS SHE ALWAYS HAS, A PERMANENT DIVINE MOST UNION, TOTAL TRANSCENDENTAL WITH OUR LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA. THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH, TRUTH, TRUTH AND THE ONLY TRUTH. LET NONE OF US DOUBT ON THIS EVER. ONLY SHE CAN DO THIS FOR US IN ALL THE THREE WORLDS.
WITH PALLANDU (DIVINE BLESSINGS ) TO OUR DEAREST MOTHER ANDAL AMMA , MAY WE ALL IN CHORUS WITH BOTH HANDS JOINED LOVINGLY AND RAISED ABOVE PRAY TO OUR LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA TO FOREVER SHIELD OUR DEAREST MOTHER ANDAL AMMA AND TO MOST LOVINGLY BIND HER TO HIM EVER, AS ALWAYS, AND MAY SHE FIND THE HIGHEST BLISS IN HER TRANSCENDENTAL UNION WITH OUR LORD SRIMAN NARAYANA.
