Andal 04. God Came In Dream - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

Surprisingly the Lord came
Not only in the dream
Of Andal's father, that night,
But also the temple priest.

The Lord commanded them,
'Go and bring the same
Garland that was worn
By Andal, the sacred one.'

'More fragrance is added
From the flower garland
Worn and offered by her.
I'm pleased by that offer.'

Surprised by the voice
Of the Lord of all Lords,
Her father realized then,
She was His chosen one.

She was called thereafter
For the ‘worn-offer' of her
As 'Choodi Kodutha Andal,
The Chudar Kodi, ' in Tamil.

To celebrate her marriage,
Andal reached a ripe age.
But she was too keen
To marry the Lord then.

How could that happen?
Andal, a mortal human,
Can she marry the Lord
The immortal Supreme God?

This way all questioned,
How it struck to her mind,
This kind of impossible one,
In her divine life to happen?

But all her actions showed
That she was so determined
To marry the Lord one day,
Waiting for it, come what may.
