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