    Koodaraivalli


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Koodaraivalli is a function celebrated based on Andal's 27th pasuram "KOODARAI VELLUM SEER...". Every year, margazhi 27 is celebrated as "koodaravalli" hence. In this day, the andal with her friends have completed their fasting in this day and started enjoying themselves for the rest three days. The song "vaiyathu vazhveergal..." should be think of before entering into Koodarai vellum pasuram.

    In the pasuram, "Vaiyathu vaazhvirgal", andal is telling us how to involve in the fasting and what are all the procedures. You should always chant the bhagavannama for the whole day of fasting, avoid ghee, milk, take bath early in brahmamuhurtha, dont decorate yourself, dont do avoided things (eating outside, speaking unnecessary words, etc.), help others, so on...

    In the pasuram, "koodarai vellum" she is concluding the fasting.

    koodaarai vellum seer gOvindhaa undhannai(p)
    paadi(p) paRai kondu yaam peRum sammaanam
    naadu pugazhum parisinaal nanRaaga(ch)
    choodagamE thOL vaLaiyE thOdE sevip poovE
    paadagamE enRanaiya palagalanum yaam aNivOm
    aadai uduppOm adhan pinnE paaR chORu
    mooda ney peydhu muzhangai vazhi vaara(k)
    koodi irundhu kuLirndhElOr embaavaay

    These girls are wearing so many ornaments and decorated themselves and went to temple. Their they sung the praise of narayana. They wore new garments. Eat well the milk-rice (Finishing their fasting by eating milk itself). How to prepare that milk-rice? Since all these days, they avoided milk and ghee, now they poured the ghee in amount so that it covered the rice itself. How to quantify that? It is very simple. When you take the rice in your hands, the ghee should flow free from that it should fall from your forearm.

    The final punch is very important. "Koodi irundu kulirnadelo" Share and enjoy the same food with everyone present there.


    In perumal temples, (I dont know whether they are preparing Paal soru) Sweet, ghee sakkara pongal will be prepared and in even houses, they prepare chakarapongal and offer it to god and then to other houses and then they eat. By keeping this fasting and ending this with cheerfulness, makes our enemies to drive away from us.

    Andal is a psychiatrist, Dietician, beautician, what not I think. The enemies she is telling is the uncontrallble mind only. By doing fasting, then preparing delicious dish and then sharing the same with others make our mind cool and harmless. After a pakka dieting, if we loaded ourselves with ghee and milk, the proteins will get accumulated into appropriate places and necessary aminoacids will started secreting.

    Enjoy this koodaravalli with your near and dear ones.

    Note: For so many years, since I learned this pasuram, I thought "koodaraivalli" means on that day, perumal will be placed in a "koodaram" (Tent). hhaaahahah
