brahmA listened attentively to what vEgAsEthup perumAL told saraswathi. I am going to reside on your banks all days to come. The words addressed to him (brahmA) that he would soon have his gift also echoed in his mind.
brahmA recalled the events chronologically – the dispute between dhEvas and rishis and munis; the curse pelted on him; saraswathi leaving furiously; his search on the earth for an apt place for penance; voice of aSarIrI; his subsequent arrival at kAnchi; numerous obstructions he faced from saraswathi and asuras and how emperumAn shielded them on every occasion.
So much had happened in so little time.
“You are beyond perception. The fortune I appeal for is that you shall be enshrined in my mind for ever ( i.e., I shall never forget you). Only you are the wealth I own.
Reflecting on you and your greatness, and only that is nourishing and beneficial for me.
I eagerly look forward to the day I will be endowed with the gift, namely you” said brahmA to himself.
Accompanied by saraswathi, he continued with the vELvi flawlessly. On an auspicious day, in the core of the uththara vEdi (place where fire is raised and penance performed) there appeared a dazzling brilliance which matched the radiance when thousand suns come into view at the same time.
All assembled danced jubilantly chanting “varadhan has emerged. varadhan has emerged!!”
dhEvas and those who have attained liberation (mukthi) expressed their joy sounding conches.
All present had their hearts fixed on the lotus eyes and the reddish mouth of varadha, resembling like fruit. They were labouring to prevent their hearts robbed by the charm of His eyes and lips.
varadha’s holy emergence occurred at the auspicious “prAthas savana kAlam”.
What is that period “prAthas savana kAlam”?
Wait to get enlightened .
