Govindaa GGoovindaa!!

விசேஷமான நாள்

Govinda Gooovinda!!!

Wondering what is lost? Yeh!! That’s what I would think first when I see this title till last few months!! Yeh, most of you would tend to think so.

Have you ever thought why do we relate the name govinda to losing and not getting back??
Well, ‘Go’ - cow / land or one’s senses , ‘Vinda’ - protector. Lord Krishna lifted Goverdhanagiri to protect the cows and villagers and Indra awarded this title “Govinda”. You must be saying like arivaali Muthulakshmi - adhaan enaku theriyungale. Read ahead!!

Later in 8th century, adishankarar wrote the very famous Bhaja Govindam. In that he said " If we just worships Govinda, we can easily get out of this great ocean of birth and death and go to the eternal blissful Vaikundham and not get back to earth". This should have been inculculated in everybody’s mind and passed through generations. In the later days, the name Govinda should have been used to denote ‘not get back ’. Over the period ‘Govinda gooovindaa’ should have been used to denote anything to ‘not get back and totally get lost-poyee pochu’.

Idhu theriyaama ivlo naal irundhen.. Just thought I will share this with you all. It has been long time that I blogged.

Well, do you guys know why we say that ‘kaadhu kuthaadha’ when somebody lies ? Therinja sollunga :)-

hehe.... nalla araichi. innuru vishayam gavanichiya... naamam podradhu kooda adhe meaning la dhan solraanga. When someone cheats you (especially with money), "naamatha saathitan pa" nnu solvaanga. Venky kku ivlo edhiriya.... ;-)

priya..

naan idhuvaraikkum govindaa sonnadhu only two reasons.. #1 - thirupathi la line la nikkumbodhu...kootathula govindaa poduven.. #2 - evanavadhu evanayavadhu yemathitta solluven.. (already cited by AACHI Viji :P)

so indha explanation ippo dhan first time kelvi padaren..

Priya said...

yeh.. viji and arun,

namatha saathitaan also means to say 'one who becomes vaishnavite loses death and birth cycle' and that has now changed into 'lose something'.

Infact once when I asked thatha abt 'why are we born as vaishnavite', I heard that this is to lose death and birth cycle':)-

Priya said...

thankoo subha!!

All these years I thought "Govinda Govinda" is associated to "Shaving our head" (i mean mottai addikaradhu) which is also its first cousin. But yours is more of a spiritual explanation. Like it!!!

On a side note, I like Muthulakshmi's Poori Recipe in arivali.

Priya said...

this is not my explanation..i think it is the fact..
govindakum mottaikum sambhandam enaku theriyala..anyways..

Sriram Varadharajan said...

I agree the fact the way you explained it. Mottai addikaradhu is also another way to say poyay pochu.

Priya said...

yeh, mottai is related to poyepochu..and we wud say mottai adikaatha..

may be all mottai are considered to say govinda govindaa:)-
