PeriyAzhvaar's Praise of Thiru Kudanthai Aravamudhan
 
குடங்கள் எடுத்து ஏற விட்டுக்
கூத்தாட வல்ல எம கோவே

மடம் கொள் மதிமுகதாரை
மால்செய வல்ல என் மைந்தா

இடங்திட்டு இரணியன் நெஞ்சை
இரு பிளவு ஆகா முன் கீண்டாய்

குடந்தைக் கிடந்த எம் கோவே
குருகத்திப் பூச் சூட வாராய்(188)-Periyazhvaar

“Kudangal Eduthu Yera Vittu,
Koothaada Valla Em Kovey
Madam Kol MathiMugathaarai,
Maal Seya Valla En Maiynthaa

Idanthittu Iraniyan Nenjai,
Iru Pilavu Aaga Mun Keendaai
Kudanthai Kidantha Em Kovey,
Kurukathi Poochoota Vaaraai”

Periazhvaar composed 10 verses referred to as Poochoodal.

In his 7th paasuram in the Poochoodal, PeriAzhvaar sings praise of Kudanthai Aaravamudhan.

PeriAzhvaar praises the sleeping lord at Kudanthai(Kumbakonam) as a King who was deft at juggling pots thrown in the air. He refers to the Lord as the young prince who infatuates the young and beautiful girls.

He wants the Lord who once tore open the chest of Hiranyakashipu and who is now residing in a reclining posture at Thiru Kudanthai to come and wear the Kurukaththi flowers.
