Aathi antham vaalaiyavaliruntha viideh
Paththuvayathaagumintha vaamithaaneh (Karuvoorar)
Sri Vaalai bestows love, wisdom and prosperity with her small hands.
The Siddhars language would define the word vaalai as life, soul, breath, and life energy. Vaalai resides in the human form from head to toe, both as life and conscience. Konggana maharishi states that one who worships Vaalai will become a Siddhar.
The triangular wheel is Vaalai’s tool. Agaaram, Ugaaram and Magaaram signify intelligence, emotion and thought.
