Sri:
SrImathE Gopaladesikaya Namah:
Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

AzhwAr (Thirumangai AzhwAr) now immerses and loses himself to Kutti KaNNan, 
(SarvEshwaran, Sarvagnan, SarvavyApakan, Swamy, Sarva sEshi) letting Himself 
be tied down by a rope by an illiterate Ayar padi (cowherd) woman YashOdhA.  
NammAzhwAr also, fainted for almost 6 months, it is told, moved by His 
Sowlabhyam of being allowed to be tied down to a mortar with a rope.

Let us enjoy this ten on His sowlabhyam.

1. The One who revealed Vedas to establish dharma in the world; In addition, 
the One who  has the Moon, the Sun, Earth, the wavy oceans, the mountains, 
the fire, as His own and manifests in them; who has His lovely neck, that 
can swallow all of them too; Such greatest Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: 
The just churned fresh butter- He stole that and ate. Got Himself caught 
red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by a cowherd woman. Is there any 
such wonderstruck even in the world similar to this? (None.)

2. The One who had the unparalleled huge manthara mountain as the “matthu” 
(stick) for churning, the snake Vasuki as the rope, churned the huge ocean- 
Later once aimed a round arrow to straighten the hunch back of a woman; one 
who had retained in His stiomach seven worlds, seven mountains, seven 
oceans, during dissolution and protected the same- Today- Such greatest 
Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh butter- He stole 
that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by 
a cowherd woman. See for yourself.

3. The strongest Madhu, kaitapars,-when shivering Devas pleaded the Lord, 
prostrating at His Feet for saving them from the asurAs, - were killed by 
SarvEshwaran. Also the One who effortlessly tore the body of HiraNyan (which 
was huge like a mountain) into two- who had  the bent Divine Bow in his 
Hand; - Today Such greatest Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just 
churned fresh butter- He stole that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed 
and allowed Himself tied down by a cowherd woman.

4. Devas, when exhausted by asurAs’ troubles, prayed to Him “You are our 
rakshakan”, He became one immediately and protected them, by killing strong 
arrogant HiraNyan. SarvEshwaran, the Consort of Periya PiraaTTi MahAlakshmi, 
grew huge and big to capture all the whole Universe from MahAbhali by 
measuring the whole universe (surrounded by oceans) with His Feet. Today- 
Such greatest Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh 
butter- He stole that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed 
Himself tied down by a cowherd woman.

5. The One who expanded everywhere during Vamana avtaar- who has His Lotus 
Feet (for devotees to surrender) in order to alleviate all sorrows of His 
devotees and enable them reach the status equal to Nithyasooris (as 
Mukthas). Such Parama upakArakan- One who instructed Yama and his dhUthAs, 
that “They are my devotees and are not to be scrutinized for any further”. 
(AS they are assured of mOksham for having surrendered to His Lotus Feet). 
One who has the entire Universe under His control; - Today- Such greatest 
Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh butter- He stole 
that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by 
a cowherd woman.

6. Swamy Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan- the Sri Vallabhan- the One who 
removes all paapams of devotees who brush aside all pleasures that are 
prohibited in saasthras, and surrender to the Lotus Feet of His, makes them 
all His own in SrivaikuNtam as His eternal servants performing servitude, - 
The One cut the thousand shoulders of strong, angry KaarthaveeryArjunan, who 
came in front of Him, saying “I am Your enemy”. – Today- Such greatest Lord- 
SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh butter- He stole that and 
ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by a 
cowherd woman.

7. After praLayam (the dissolution of this cosmic universe), He created the 
worlds again. He has the ThiruvuLLam to have the jIvans who surrender to 
Him, saved by Him and He places them as His daasars (servants). The 
illiterate asurAs (who do not have this knowledge of saraNagathy) are 
destroyed due to their own arrogance and anger against the Lord. To do that 
all that He did is to build a bridge with mountains across the ocean with 
the help of monkeys.  Today- Such greatest Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: 
The just churned fresh butter- He stole that and ate. Got Himself caught 
red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by a cowherd woman.

8. The dense, dark, black haired, unparalleled SitA PiraaTTi, wearing most 
beautiful ornaments – and of about the same aged Divine Bow was broken by 
Sri Rama and He united with SitA. He crossed the inaccessible lankA and 
destroyed rAvaNan and cut his ten heads, shoulders and legs. Today - Such 
greatest Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh butter- He 
stole that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed Himself tied 
down by a cowherd woman.

9. The curly red, blonde haired angry Kesi (horse) asurA was chased by 
KaNNan. It (he) ran everywhere. He caught hold of him and tore open the 
mouth to kill him. Also, He as Rama, with His strong Bow aimed an arrow 
through seven trees; cut the sharp nose of SoorpaNakai. Today- Such greatest 
Lord- SarvEshwaran- what He did: The just churned fresh butter- He stole 
that and ate. Got Himself caught red-handed and allowed Himself tied down by 
a cowherd woman.

10. Kutti KaNNan, even after beinh caught red handed and tied down by a rope 
to a mortar, for stealing and eating the butter, stands shamelessly to the 
enjoyment of all those who flock to see Him. His only aim was to fill His 
stomach with others’ butter, curd, milk and then caught by them red handed. 
This ten is on that Butter thief’s Lotus Feet. This Tamil garland, is 
composed by Kaliyan of Thirumangai. Those who recite them (or read them) 
will NEVER EVER suffer from any sorrow or grievance at all. They will cross 
blissfully the Chathurmukha BrahmA’s lokam and reach Parama padham.
