Choodikodutha Chudarkodi ..

Dileepan's posting on Andal prompted this - Thiruvadippoorathu is preceded
by the following four lines :

Kothai piRandha voor Govindan vazhumoor
Neethiyal nallapaththar vazhumoor nAnmaRaigalothumoor
Villipuththur vEdakkOnoor padangal theerkum paramanadikatti
VEdamanaithukkum viththagum kothai thamizh iyandhumindhum
aRiyadha manidarai vaiyam sumappadhum vambhu.

( I have not split the lines or words as they should be , writing it from
my memory and do not recall the exact end of lines )

Azhagukku azhaghu sErtharpol ...
There is a very fine praise of what Andal did - she herself personified beauty
in terms normally understood by all and in joining Govinda showed what reallly
is beautiful and endless other exalted attributes .. and this verse very
beautifully praises her.
