ANDAL

'Andal Has Won My Heart'

One day Periyalwar had a dream. Shriranganatha appeared in his dream and told him, " Andal has won my heart, give her to me in marriage."

Periyalwar's heart was filled with joy. His worries vanished -in no time.But how could he go to Shrirangam? Shrirangak- shetra was nearly two hundred miles away. In those days it was very difficult to travel that long distance. There was no one to help him. What to do?

Periyalwar thought of the Pandya King Vallabhadeva.He sent word to him. He told him about his daughter's decision and the wish of Shriranganatha.He made a request : "I have to go to Shrirangakshetra with my daughter. Please help me." The king was very happy. He considered himself as a member of the bride's party. He made grand arrangements for Periyalwar and his daughter Andal to travel.

The priest of Shriranganatha Temple also had dream: " I am marrying Andal.She must be brought in a grand procession, with all honor," so ordered Shriranganatha. The priest was surprised. But he did not delay. He started at once.
