Short  Meaning -
             In this Pasuram A:nda:l is awakening one of her friends.  See... the birds have woke up, running here and there busily chirping and greeting each other.  Haven't you heard the great sound of the White Conches blown in the temples of the lord Narayana who is the  Lord of the king of  birds( ie., Garuda), that which is calling the serving devotees to become alert in their duties ?  Having newly entered into the service of Lord, O' little girl, who is yet to know that serving the servants of Lord is the ultimate ! Wake up and join us.    He who drank the breast poison like milk, from demon Puthana who came camouflaged as His mother, He who broke the chariot  into pieces, that was   the deceiving  form of a demon Sakatasura, by just extending His cute legs and simply touching them to the chariot, He who is laying down on a soft serpant in the Milky ocean, whom the Munis and Yogis always try to constantly remember in their hearts by slowly waking up yelling the holy name "Hari"  " Hari"  have all entered into our hearts and calmed it down to the coldest, that which is making us shiver and tremble.  How are you still sleeping, wake up and come !
