    If we ( who adhere to the Vratam-Paavai nOnbhu) sing in praise of the holy names of the Utthaman , Lord Thrivikraman
    ( the most benovolent Lord) , who grew to a cosmic form and measured the three worlds in two strides and put His
    third step on the head of Emperor MahABali , and then if we take the bath (in sacred YamunA) in the name of our Vratham ,
    then there will be three timely showers (of rain) throughout the country and there will be no harm at all (i.e., no drought , nor any famine).The country will be rich and plentiful (because of the copious rains); the fish (kayal) will roam about amidst tall stalks of large red paddy crops (drinking sufficient honey from fallen-pollen and becoming dazed);the bees with spots (all over their bodies) will fall asleep amidst the petals of KuvaLai-flower ( Blue Lotus/NeelOthpalam )and the great , profusely milk-giving ,
    generous cows will yield milk just while being touched on their stout udder filling up a number of milk-cans very quickly;because of plenty of milk , only skillful people could undertake to milk these cows. Thus , the whole country will be filled with undecaying wealth and prosperity (Richness in fields, lands and villages is assured if the good poeple take to righteous path and sing
    the glory of Lord Thrivikrama ).

    Oh Lord VaruNA who is the prsding deity of ocean-like burst of rains! (We pray to you so that ) you please do not make your gift very small(i.e. be bounteous towards us). We request you (in the form of clouds) to pour plenty of rains in the world;first you should get into the womb of the deep seas and take excessive water ( so that even the sea becomes bereft of water),make thunder (uproar), and go higher up (in the sky); (the color of ) your body should become as dark as that of the primordial cause of the world ( Oozhi Mudalvan= Jagath Kaarana BhUthan); you should become resplendent with lightning, just as the dazzling discus (Aazhi=Chakram) held on the hand of Lord PadmanAbha with broad shoulders; you should make a thunderous roar like the conch(Paanchajanyam) held on the hand of the Lord; you should bring forth rains in abundance without any cessation,--the rains just like the shower of arrows coming forth in succession from the bow (Saarangam) of the Lord.;your rains should be for
    the good of the world so that the world flourishes ; and ,through your rains , we will have plenty of water and also happily take the ceremonial bath during Maarghazhi month. ( Lord VishNu's important weapons--discus, conch and bow are cited here , in a form of invocation as it were; and Lord PadmanAbha is indicated as the JagathkAraNan-- the primordial cause ).

    The Meaning of the Fifth paasuram:

    (All of our sins vanish like a blade of grass thrown into fire , when we sing in praise of KrishNan and worship Him ). Him--the mysterious Lord ; the young courageous Lord born at north MathurA , the One who sports in the pure waters of the great river , YamunA ; the emerald-like shining Lamp that has risen from the race of cowherds;and the Lord DaamOdharA (the One
    bound by the rope around the waist)who has brought high esteem to His mother YasOdhA (literally, who illumined the mother's womb)--Him let us approach with sincerity (purity--physical and mental); let us worship Him with fresh and fragrant flowers;let us pay our obesiance to Him;let us sing in praise of Him , by words of mouth; let us think of Him in our mind;if we do so approaching worshipping ,obeying,singing and thinking of Him alone), our sins of past , present and future will vanish like
    straw put into fire.Therefore let us sing His glory.

    Awaken , Oh Young girl! Even the birds have woken up and are chirping about the arrival of the morning .Do n't You hear the loud and sacred sound from the white conch being blown at the temple of our Lord , who rides on the divine GarudA ? Oh Young girl ! Wake up! . The Yogis and Sages with minds known for uninterrupted contemplation of our great Lord celebrated for His adhbhutha leelais such as:
    (1)destroying evil Poothanai by suckling her poisonous milk-bearing breast and at the same time sucking her life away
    (2)destroying a cunning asuran , who came in the form of a cart by splintering him into pieces with a swift kick from His tiny (baby) toe .
    He(Our Lord) is the primal cause of the whole Universe . He sleeps on AdhisEshan in Yoga NidhrA at the milky ocean . The Yogis and sages have now come out of their meditation slowly and are reciting the name of Lord Hari loudly for seven times.The crescendo of that Hari Naama UccharaNam resounds like thunder and enters into our hearts and pleases us. Does it n't that aravam enter your heart too? Oh Young girl! Please Awaken and join us in the nOnbhu

    Oh pEy peNNE (deluded girl)! do n't you hear the noise raised by the Aanai Saatthan birds ( BharadhvAja Birds in Sanskrit and Valiyans in Tamizh)? Does n't your sleep get affected by the Keesu-Keesu sabdham (avyaktha madhura sallAbham ) of these busy birds outside your sleeping chambers? The dawn is advancing .There are signs of the world awakening all around you. Do n't you hear the sound made by the busy churning of the curd by the other gopis with symmetric movement of their churning rods ?
    The body movement(exertions) of these beautiful gopis sends out fragrances from their flower-adorned locks of well combed hair . Their engagement in the churning act makes their bangles and other aabharaNams around their neck (acchu thAli, Aamai thAli
    et al) collide against each other and result in a rhythmic musical sound (mangaLa naadham ). Do n't you hear that auspicious jingling sound ? Are n't you awakened yet by the sloshing of the curd as a result of the strong movement of the churning rod
    in your neighbor's houses during this still hour of the morning? Oh crown gem among gopis ! How can you be so indifferent and sleep away even after hearing us singing the nAmams of our Lord Kesavan, who destroyed the demon Kesi appearing in disguise
    as a horse ? Please awaken and get up ! Oh Luminous one! Come and open the door so that we could sing
    together about the mahimai of our Lord with you.

    Oh beautiful girl full of uthsAham (kuthUhalam ) for the Lord ! Day break is approaching as seen by the whitening of the Eastern sky from the earlier red hue linked with AruNOdhayam . Awaken ! The hungry buffalos have been led to the pastures close to home ( siRu Veedu mEyvAN) for their "breakfast " of dewy grass .We have detained the other Gopis , who were ready to go to the place of vratham so that you can join with us all .We have assembled in front of your house to awaken you and take you with us . Please get up. If we sing about our Lord's glory together , He will give us the vrathOpakaranams (Drum and other saamagriyAs to observe our vratham ).When we approach our Lord--who destroyed the asuran Kesi by tearing his mouth apart,
    and killed the wrestlers of KamsA's court--and prostrate before Him in all humility, that Lord (KrishNa ), the Lord of all gods(Devaathi Devan ) will be moved and have DayA for us and will inquire about our yOga KshEmam with great interest (aavA yenRu=haa haa yenRu

    (The cowherd women folk practising the Srivratham (Paavai Nonbhu) awaken another maiden , who has self complacency in her earnest devotion to the Lord). Oh the daughter of our uncle! You are taking rest and sleeping on the soft bed , while the lamps are lit all round the dazzling hall(with inlaid gem stones )of your mansion filled with aroma of the incense . Please (get up) and open the lever-lock of the shining doors (with inlaid gems ) of your chambers.( As the inside of the chambers is apparent , these gopis could see within the enclosure and so call the aunt , the mistreess of the house). Dear Aunt !Could you please
    awaken your daughter? Is She dumb or deaf or exhausted and tired out? Or has She been cursed with long spell of sleep ? (may be , that is the reason for her sleeping without responding to us). To awaken her from this hypnotic sleep , (let us) recite as remedy , the numerous names of the Lord as " God of the Supreme magical power ( MahAmAyan), the Lord of Goddess MahA Lakshmi ( Maadhavan) and Vaikuntan ( the Lord of Sri Vaikuntam).
