Short Meaning –
In this song A:nda:l is showing us the way how to worshi Lord in the best but,,, easiest way. Lord Krishna who has taken incarnation in the Northern part of Madhura, to save those who adore to Him, is the one with the mysterious characteristics and Divine sport. He is the king of Madhura, the place that’s always associated with the Lord. Lord Krishna is the one who always stands on the bank of the holy waters of the river Yamuna. He is like a glowing sacred lamp born in the cowherds caste. He is the one, Damodara, who glorified the womb of his mother. We should worship such Lord Sri Krishna, with the purity of not seeking anyother benefits from Him, by sprinkling the flowers on Him, by singing mouthfully, the glory of His holy traits (Kalyana Gunas) thinking him constantly in our heart, then, all the sins which are due in stock (sanchitha Pa:pa:s) and the sins that are about to materialise, they all get burnt down like that of a streak of cotton having fallen into a rapid fire. Hence, let us sing His holy names.
