He can deftly wriggle and scrouch
And comply with Her dynamic rules.
He can snugly pause or renew
To fit into Her vibrant hues.
Cast Him into any fluid shape
She’d like him to heed to.
Her engaging game it is
He’s only sincerely playing to.

An old poem again with this beautiful keerthanam, “Ardhanarishwara”, composed in the Kumudakriya ragam. It seems Muthuswami Dikshithar selected this specific ragam because the “Kumuda” flower, an aquatic blossom resembling a lotus, possesses both male and female organs, reflecting the symbolism of Ardhanarishwara. Talk about brilliance!?

“Ardhanarishwaram Araadhayaami Sathatham.
Atri Bhrighu Vasishtaadhi Muni Vrinda Vanditam”

“I always worship (“satatam”) Ardha Narishvara (“araadhyami”), who was saluted (“vanditam”) by the group of saints (“vrinda”), namely Atri, Bhrugu and Vasishtha.”
