Govinda appeared in dream to Periyāḻvār: "My dearest Periyāḻvār, Viṣṇucitta! For singing verses of glory and wearing my garlands Godā has earned a special place in my heart. She is my beloved Bhūdevī (Mother-Earth) and only appeared as your daughter and she shall be called Āṇḍāḷ hereafter. Do not try to stop her from wearing the garlands. She should continue wearing them." Āṇḍāḷ wrote Tiruppāvai (30 verses) and Nācciyār Tirumoḷi (143 verses) as a prapatti to the Lord and to seek refuge at His Lotus feet.
