In this pasuram a gopi reputed for her exquisite beauty
like a golden creeper (POR KODI) and born of a very noble
family,is being woken up.Her father and kinsmen are known
for discharging the duties pertaining to their cowherd
caste,which entails milking an endless number of cows.
So Andal seems to say that performance of one's duty as enjoined
in the Scriptures is calculated to bring happiness to the
Lord and thereby falls into the category of His Service.
One should hence never discard one's duty.
SETTAR TIRALAZHIYA is noteworthy.SETTAR means enemies.
Who are the enemies meant here ? Not those who despise
them but those who want to harm Sri Krishna.For a
Sri Vaishnava there is no direct enemy;he will not
mind or may even welcome (as it will take away his
sin) someone trying to harm him.But he considers him
his enemy who intends harm to the Lord.
SUTTATTU THOZHIMAR - the girl-companions of this gopi
- who are they? They are those who even after performing
all kinds of services to the Lord,do not expect anything
in return except His Supreme Satisfaction and Happiness.
"Praharshayishyami sanatha jeevitah"-I'll make my life
worthwhile by pleasing Him- says Sri ALAVANDAR.The stanza
in NACHIYAR TIRUMOZHI " Naaru narum pozhil".(9.6-7) is also
to be remembered in this context.
