Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

Today, Maasi month, Punarvasu star is the janma nakshathram of Our 
Dearest KulasEkharAzhwAr. The King, who became so much involved with 
Bhakti for Emperumaan sang excellent 105 verses of PerumAL Thirumozhi in 
Thamizh and 40 verses in Sanskrit by name Mukunda MaalA. He was so much 
attracted To Lord Sri Rama and was greatly involved that he, while 
listening to RamayaNa upanyasam, once even ordered his troops to help 
Sri Rama. 

He has sung 10 pAsuranms in the role of Devaki. They are really 
emotional anubhavam of our AzhwAr. Devaki says: 
1. I am the lowest and unluckiest of all mothers- which mother has such 
misfortune like me of not having her child with her right from the 
2. I am not lucky to see you lying down on the floor, so beautiflully.
3. I have not enjoyed your childhood days. When asked who your father 
is, oh no! You are showing Nandagopan. He is so lucky to be called you 
father. And VasudEva is the unluckiest father.  
4. I have missed all your childhood pranks.
5. She, yasOdhA was blessed with everything. She got the lovely, sweet 
kiss from you.
6. I WAS SO UNLUCKY to miss eating the remaining food, which you used to 
leave on the plate.
7. I lost all your most beautiful glances at me. Even Gopis enjoyed 
8. YasOdhA got the ultimate happiness in her life by bringing you up. 
She was so lucky to be subjected so much of mischiefs and pranks by the 
Emperumaan, KaNNan.
9. Even pUthanai was extremely blessed to be sucked by the kutti Kannan; 
but not me; I missed the kutti kaNNan's loving fondling of my breast 
while sucking the milk from the other breast. 
10.  KaNNA! You got such a loveliest, luckiest mother in yasOdhA!

What an anubhavam of KulasEkharAzhwAr. He has also sung pAsurams as if 
he is DasarathA. 
AzhwAr , the King, wished to be any object in ThiruvEnkadam be it a 
bird, a fish, a bush, a mountain, a tree, a person (holding the Golden 
vattil of the Lord for Him to spit in the morning), OR A STEP IN HIS 
SANNIDHI, or any other object at TirumalA.

Let us all think of Such a Great AzhwAr to day and surrender at his 

Ram Ram

With Best Regards
