The word Thiruppavai, among several acknowledged popular meanings, may literally be taken to mean EaoYz pv-a - shreshtha parva grand festival. For inner and deeper meaning of the verses one may refer several publications available on various websites.
There are 30 verses, and they depict how to observe the vow in Dahanur mas in honour of Srikrishna. The period of thirty days of vow begins from the full moon night of Margshirsh month onwards. The gopi of Vrindavan observe this vow to attain Srikirshna as husband and visit the river Yamuna for bath in early morning before sunrise. In thiruppavai also, in a similar fashion, Andal knocks the doors of all of her girl friends in the wee hour to move to the river Yamuna for bath.
Gathering the friends and reminding them about the glory of Srikrishna are the contents of first 1 — 15 verses. They take a vow not to eat verse 2 ghee and milk, avoid collyrium in the eyes, and flowers in the hair lock for all the thirty days. Thereafter they go to wake up Srikrishna. In the verse 16 the guards of Nandgop are requested to open the door. Verses 18 — 20 wake Nappinai, the consort of Srikrishna.

The sequence of words has been attempted to be maintained similar to the original Tamil composition.
Pavai Genre[ edit ] Thiruppavai belongs to the Pavai genre of songs, a unique Tamil tradition sung in the context of the Pavai vow Vratham or ritual observed throughout the month of Margazhi. Sri Vaishnavas sing these stanzas every day of the year in the temple as well as in their homes. This practice assumes special significance during Margazhi : each day of this month gets its name from one of the thirty verses. There are references to this vow in the late-sangam era Tamil musical anthology Paripadal. Vaishnavas sing these songs to bring peace, prosperity and Divine Grace. Andal assumes the guise of a cowherd girl in these 30 verses. Andal appears intent upon performing a particular religious vow to marry the Lord, thereby obtain His everlasting company, and inviting all her girl-friends to join her.
