Hello,
	This is the second pAsuram from periya thirumozhi. This talks about
	the greatness of the women living in thiruvallikkENi in the last
	line (One of the bhakti-list member, Smt. VaidhEhi is from 
	thiruvallikkENi. She would feel very happy that thirumaN^gai AzhwAr 
	has sung about them :-)

	-Viji

(suvai - taste, payan - the end result/ fruit)

The one who is like the 'flawless' fruits eaten by the great sages.

(kOdhu il -could have a better meaning than just 'flawless'!, My limited
knowledge just halts there..)

n^an^dhanaark kaLiRRai - The One who was born -like a baby  elephant- to
n^an^dhagOpan

you will never feel satisfied of seeing. You would like to see it again and 
again..)

I (the AzhwAr) had the blessing of such a Lord's dharshan at Triplicane (thiruvallikkENi), which boasts of having incomparably great women living 
there!!
