What is Vinayagar Agaval?

 

Vinayagar Agaval is one of the most powerful poems on Ganapathy, written in chase Tamil by Avvaiyar, the saint poetess of the Tamil Country who lived in the 9th century, propagating the fragrance of Tamil literature and also speaking about marlaity and spirituality.

In the 72-line poem, she describes Lord Vinayaga through which she expresses how to leash the enormous reserve of untapped potential within each of us – it is one of the rarest treasures left behind for all of us to enjoy and pass it on to the next generation.
