Goda also known as Andal is considered the incarnation of Bhoodevi and is a divine daughter of Sri Vishnuchittar or fondly called as Periyazhwar. She was found by Vishnuchittar under a Thulasi plant and happily brought her up like his own daughter while feeding her with the stories and glories of Lord Krishna. Goda fell in love with Lord Krishna and at the age of five sang the most beautiful set of 30 hymns called Thiruppavai and 143 hymns called Nachiyar Thirumozhi. She explains Krishna bhakthi and ways to attain the supreme Lord in the most easy and practical ways of serving devotees. Hence Dhanur masam, the most special among the other months, begins with the first hymn of Thiruppavai and culminates with Goda Kalyanam where she enters into eternal loving service to Lord Ranganatha.
Inviting all Krishna and Goda devotees to participate in this divine wedding of Goda and Lord Ranganatha and get the blessings from the Divya dhampadhis.
