When Margazhi dawns, the air is filled with the devoted, poetic music of Venkateshwara. The season is celebrated with the compositions of Andal - the Thiruppavai and Thiruvempavai - which are verses recognised for their mellifluous ragas and enchanting lines of bhakti. Andal is considered one of the twelve Alvars, who were Tamil poet-saints and devotees of Lord Vishnu in the Vaishnavite tradition. To this day, she is best known for her compositions of devotional poetry, which are recited and sung in many Hindu temples and households not only during Margazhi, but all year round. Andal's life and works have had a profound impact on Tamil literature, art, and culture, and she is revered as a symbol of devotion, piety, and spiritual enlightenment. Her legacy continues to inspire millions of people around the world. The story of Andal ends on a happy note for her as she is united with her Lord who she was keen on marrying.Product Features:
