Short  Meaning -   In this pasuram Andal says -
                Those who enjoy  living on this Earth !  Listen to the things we do in our Vratham !  Let us sing the glories of the Lotus feet of Parama:thma Lord Na:ra:yana who is taking rest in the milky ocean.  During this Vratham,  We take shower in the early morning. We don't take any preparations made of milk and  Ghee.  We don't put the black paste (Ka:tuka) to our eyes, nor do we wear garlands / flowers.  We shall never do the things that were not accepted by our elders, nor do we go to others and speak  bad about anybody or anything.  We shall practice to generously do charity to the extent possible and give alms to the saints and sannyasis. Listen to the things we need to do, relish  thinking the ultimate path !  This is our vratham, let us follow.
