Dear BhakthAs of the Lord of Thirukkudanthai :

Inspired by the AzhwArs who performed ManagaLAsAsanam ,
I have ventured to write ten Tamil poems on Sri SaarangapANi
in the spirit of the Tamil folk song . This effort of
mine is in tune with the spirit of this folk song  :

Kaana mayil aaDak kaNDiruntha Vaankozhiuyum
thAnum tannpollAc chiRahai viritthu aaDinARppOlE 

( Meaning ) : The Turkey spread its uncomely feathers
and began to dance , when it saw the beautiful peacock
spreading its colorful wing to dance . 

I place these ten poems at the feet of Sri KomaLavalli
SamEtha Sri AarAvamudhan with reverence . The words used
in these poems have been inspired by the AzhwAr's Pasura
vAkhyams :

1. anparkku aruL puriyum maaperum SothiyAnavan
   ulahelAm paranthu vinthaikal puriyum Maayavan
   Mangai iruvar malar silampadi varudum vayOdhikan
   Kudanthai Vaazh SaarangapANi Odhuvarkkariyavan 

( here His PraNavAkara SvarUpam is saluted with 
  the first three lines of the above poem 
  starting with with the letters A, U and M ).

2. Aavi AnAn Amudhamum AnAn naRtthuNai naNbanumAnAn

As a novice poet unfamiliar with meter and 
rhyme , I have emboldened myself to offer
at the feet of the Lord of Thirukkudanthai 
these decad of verses .May He accept it in
the spirit of humility with which it is offered 
at the time of His samprOkshana MahOthsavam
set for June 30 at Thirukkudanthai.
