abhirami battar

So devoted to the goddess abhirami was this tamil saint that when on a new moon someone asked him what day it was he responded that it was a full moon, as he was absorbed in her radiant face.

The king asked again and when he responded the same they set to burn him alive if his prediction was untrue. The goddess was so pleased with his slokas (praise poems) that she appeared in the sky in all her radiance. Beautiful classic indian singing.
