Thiruppavai is composed by Andal, like many of us might know. She undertakes a vrat much similar to the “Karthiyayani” vrat beginning on the first day of the month of “Margazhi” and adorning each day of the month with a new Pasuram, an eight-lined verse. The thirty verses collectively form the book of “Thiruppavai”. This could be recited everyday to invoke the blessings of the Lord Narayana. However, the month of Margazhi (mid-December to mid-January) is significant with respect to the recital of this hymn. Even Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita says "Masaanaam Margaseershohum", meaning “among the months, I am Margazhi”
Our app comes both with the complete lyrics of the song (In Tamizh and English)and the audio for the same (with auto-scroll option). Anybody can learn it so easily. You get the feeling of a traditional songbook in the mobile form. More better, as you get the audio for all the 30 songs played in the background. Also, when you hit the “play” button for the audio, the lyric content scrolls automatically. How more exciting can it get. Go ahead and enjoy the Margazhi month by listening to all the 30 songs every day.
Other Details of this app:
In the first five verses, Andal dwells on the appropriateness of the vrat and the method to be followed, invokes varuna deva for timely rains and emphasized that all obstacles for performing the vrat will be eliminated if everyone sings and reflects on the name of the Lord (“Namasankirtanam”).
From the sixteenth to the twenty-ninth verse Andal reminds the seemingly forgetful Lord of His earlier promises to grant “salvation” to His devotees, alternatively seeking His pardon for earlier trespasses, worshiping Him for His superior qualities and surrendering unto Him unconditionally (“Charanagathy” tatvam/philosophy)
In the thirtieth verse Andal acknowledges the fulfillment that would arise from the observance of the “marghazhi vrat” of the Gopis and declares that those who recite Her Thiruppavai verses would become the objects of Her Lord's grace and would be filled with bliss.
