Since there was no more tulsi available, he did not take any garland to the Lord that day.
That night he went to sleep with a heavy heart. But in his dream, Lord Vishnu appeared and asked, "Why did you not bring me the tulsi garland today?"
Periyalwar or Vishnuchitta replied, "Lord! Excuse Goda for her folly. She unknowingly wore the garland meant for you and defiled it, and so I could not bring it to you."
The Lord said, "Vishnuchitta! I love the garland worn by Goda more. Hereafter, bring me the garland only after she wears."
When Perlyalwar woke up he realised that Goda was no ordinary child, but Goddess Bhudevi Herself. It was then he gave her the name Andal.
