Introduction
This tamil poem of thirty verses is composed by Andal. 
She was one of the 12 alwars who lived circa 
5th-9th century C.E.
This is a simple word for word translation and was
put together to understand the actual cadence
and literal meaning of the verses so as to better 
appreciate the deep philosophical meanings they
represent and the commentaries written by others.
It draws heavily from the translation of R. Srinivasan
and the commentary and write up of Oppiliappan Koil 
VaradAchAri Sadagopan which provides the inner meanings
to the deep philosophical significance behind the poem.
