Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

Feb 16th - Massi Punarvasu is the Birthday (Thirunakshathram) of 

It is adiyEn's delight and Bhagaym to post a slokam from his Mukunda mala 
for our enjoyment and our obeisance to the Great AzhwAr.

This is slokam no. 33.

krishNa tvadheeya padha pankaja pancharaantham
adhyaiva mE visathu maanasa raaja hamsa:/
praaNa prayaaNa samayE kapa vaadha pitthai:
kaNTavarOdhanavidhou smaraNam kuthasthE?//

(adiyEn's free translation)Oh KrishnA! At this momet, at this spot of time, 
in my life, let the swan of my manas (mind), enter the Lotus Feet of Yours.. 
How can I remember You at the dying moment when my thorat is choked with 
phlegm (and emotions), mucus, bile and air (gasping..)

so, appOdhaikku ippOdhE solli vaitthEn..

Please also enjoy the excellent post in Feb 96 available in Bhakti archives, 
written by Sri Sampath Rengi titled "Perumaal Thirumozhi- an insight into 
vyaakyaanam by periya vacchaan Pillai" . Really a marvellous one wtitten in 
Sri Sampath Rengi's inimitable style.
