    1.Please refer to many scholars’ statement( Today U.V Thamal Sri Ramakrishnan also repeated the same )…
    ” Koodaarai vellum ” has unfortunately got twisted as Koodaaravalli. It is giving a wrong meaning. The actual meaning is Lord Govinda attracts even those who do not wish to join the right path and thereby saves them from Doom. “Vellum” is not by fighting but by Compassion (Kaarunyam). There is NEITHER “Koodaaraam” ( Tent/Shaamiyaana) , NOR “Valli”(sounds like Vedavalli or Sundaravalli !)
    It is just .. KOODAARAI ( meaning Koodaathaarai ) VELLUM (conquering by Grace) GOVINDA !
    2. AKKAARA VARISAL is a special Naivaidyam stressed in this and the next song( Karavaigal pin sendru). Both the songs are interconnected. The process of making this special Naivaedyam corrosponds to each step of Krishnaanubhavam( experiencing the Lord).
    To be prepared …WITHOUT WATER , RICE SHOULD BE BOILED IN MILK ONLY . MEANS NO DILUTION. ( EXPERIENCE HIM WITH NO DILUTION & ONLY IN PURITY.. It’s the message of the song. Communal harmony , sharing equally with Love is stressed in the 28th song.
