ANDAL

They Belong to All Mankind

Periyalwar composed songs. Andal also composed songs. In the songs of both of them there is one thing that shows their greatness. In their songs, both of them pray God to eradicate unrighteousness (Adharma)and pray only for righteousness. Is not this the prayer of the people of all countries and all religions?May vice perish, may goodness grow, and may all people live in cooperation, without harming one another - is this not the prayer of all good people ? Such people belong to all religions, they belong to all who desire
the good of all mankind-. Both Alwar and Andal practiced the ideals of selflessness and freedom from all desire, and they set an example for others to follow. It is not wonder that people of all religions and have all times honour them.

The birthday of Andal,which falls on Pubba Nakshatra(star) day in the month of Adi (usually in July) is celebrated every where as 'Tiruvadippoora'.

Even to this day the pleasing idol of Andal can be seen in all Shrivaishnava temples.
TheTiruppavai composed by her is chanted everyday.
