SRIVILLIPUTHUR

When she listened to the story of Lord Krishna in Mathura she felt enraptured at the love of the Gopi" for Lord Krishna. The purest love and devotion ever shown to God by human beings is that of the Gopis shown towards Lord Krishna. Mightily'did Andal enjoy these stories of love and devotion of the Gopis and she wanted to have such experiences for herself. The stories of the Gopis moved her so much that she herself felt the very pangs of separation of the Gopis at the absence of Krishna. She has given expression to these feelings in the 30 lyrical stanzas known as Tiruppavai.

Nothing is superior to it in Tamil literature, in respect of poetic conception, simplicity of language and the philosophy underlying the work. As she listened with rapt attention to the names of the Lord, she was held captive by the grace and glories of Ranganatha, and decided that she would wed no other being thanRanganatha himself. Vishnu Chitta, in utter perplexity at the determination of his daughter to marry Lord Ranganatha, dropped into sleep Ranloanatha came in the dream of Vishnu Chitta and pro-posed himself for his daughter's hand and heart.
