                      nAcciyAr tirumozhi - II - ciRRil cidaiyEl.
           pAsuram 2.9 (second tirumozhi - pAsuram 9 muRRattUDu pugundu)

A. Translation from SrImAn SaDagopan's tamizh treatise.

"You didn't stop with destroying our ciRRil; you entered into the inside of
our house (muRRam) and showing your sweet face to us with a smile, destroyed
our hearts also; oh govinda, who measured with one foot, this whole world and 
with another, all the upper worlds!   Wouldn't the folks in the house talk 
bad of us if they find out you embraced us and kissed us?"

muRRattUDu pugundu nin mugam kATTi punmuRuval Seydu
 ciRRilODu engaL cinTaiyum Sidaikka kaDavaiyO gOvinDA
muRRa maNNiDam tAvi viNNURa nINDu aLandu koNDAi emmaip-
 paRRi meip-piNakkiTTakkAl indap pakkam ninRavar en SollAr?

B.  Some additional thoughts:

ANDAL is pointing out to kaNNan that just as He pushed mahAbali into the 
pAdALa lokam after he gave the three feet of land to vAmana, He is going to get 
them in trouble after hugging them if their mothers find out.  [SrI PVP]
