Day and night she doesn’t sleep , in floods of tears her eyes swim ….

  The most revered srivaishnava Acharyar  Swamy Parasara Bhattars  was conducting a class at his Gurukulam .

He was explaining the three stages of love to LORD …….


Recollection   ,  Trance    and Rallying … 

Recollection is recollection of all the past ravishment’s  of soul ..vouchsafed by LORD

Trance or Fainting is consequent on desolation at this recollection not yielding to the present enjoyment

Rallying is the sudden lucidity whilst in this state of trance which is considered as a  extreme advanced state  in devotion which our Azhwar’s possessed……..


Bhattar continued with an example from Swamy Nammazhwars hymnal 1000 verses called Thiruvamozhi dedicated to LORD Ranganathar of the Holy  Capital SriRangam ..

jai jai


Swamy Nammazhwars amorous longing and panting to see LORD found vent in a pasuram ( song ) of his in which Azhwar considers  himself to be a mistress in love with LORD and seized with deep emotions swoons .


The speechless heart at such juncture is however revealed orally  through  another person which Azhwar  himself adorns as a mother of the helpless daughter and describing the latter’s condition to her neighbors  are out poured  on the spot …..

Day and night she  does not sleep

In floods of tears her eyes swim

Oh Discuss …Oh Conch  she cries …


And clasping her hands , and bowing to them

Oh Lotus eye one…she weeps and reels

Ah !! how is that without you I can bear

She pants and feels all earth for HIM……………………………


Oh Lord Ranga …………………abiding where      waters abundant flow …

and where fish  maddened with joy all leap and dance……


How …and…… How with my daughter will you deal …


Bhattar meditated on this verse and with intense emotion placed both his palms over his head and shed tears  and felt   sad ……………………………..


Stone hearted  we are … …….

…… are we going to realize the depth of Azhwar’s love as uttered in this divine pasuram …..


we who cannot realize  in the least of his sentiments ……..

we who cannot understand his heart ……. …

when  SUPREME LORD is eager to be with us …..

  1. Hari Om!
    Recollection Trance Rallying! – As Adiyen brouse thr’ Tiruvai Mozhi,wondering will any birth can render Adiyen such Devotion? How? Why not? What is the actual means? Questions thus haunted self. To Adiyens little brain it strikes thus: 1.Shut off external doors & peep internally – Search Search Search 2.Not a tinge of material benefits should pierce you.3.Now, expose Totally, Absolutely, Steadily, Single pointedly, madly, unconsciously,laid up in Trance! One in Koma – mad with aroma of only Perumal – That’s the way…
    Am I right Varadan? Yours is the ultimate Answer. Let me satisfy – Adiyen is able to taste a pinch of the salt from the ocean!
    – Adiyen Ramanuja Dasan – Jai Sriman Narayana!
