Tiruppavai by Andal Nachiyar
Tiruppavai is composed by the Consort (Niladevi) of Lord Vishnu, Andal Nachiyar. Andal is also one among twelve azhwars. The lyrics of the Tiruppavai are considered sacred. It is a part of Divya Prabandham, comprising 4,000 verses. Thirty pasurams of Tiruppavai are sung in the Tamil month of Margazhi. Tiruppavai has captivating lyrics, with in-depth meaning. It is equivalent to Vedas. These Tamil compositions are also sung by Carnatic vocalists during the music season. They tune them in various ragas. Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar and others have popularized Tiruppavai with their absorbing rendering. Late M.L.Vasanthakumari ranks top in Tiruppavai-singing and her album is the most-sought-after one even today. Many young artistes follow her style in singing Tiruppavai.

Tiruppavai was composed by Andal with an aim to reach Paramathma (Lord Vishnu) by singing these verses and undertaking fast (known as Pavai nombhu). The `nombu’ (or fast) was observed by Gopikas at Vrindavan in order to reach Lord Krishna. They meditated upon Goddess Kathyayani and observed fast many thousands of years ago. Andal followed the same principle while she took birth in bhooloka as the daughter of Periyazhwar. Periazhwar is also among 12 azhwars who had composed on Lord Vishnu. The first pasuram goes like this “Margazhi Thingal …” www.carnaticdarbar.com is proud to present the rendition of Tiruppavai by Smt. Vidya Subramanian, a disciple of Lalgudi Shri G.Jayaraman. Each day, we will present the pasuram specific to that day of the Margazhi month.
