This pasuram is recited invariably in all vaishnavite temples.Periyalwar had participated and won a debate on who is the Supreme Para Daiva?.During the victory procession,the supreme lord and his consort came rushing seated on Garuda.On seeing the Lord ,Periyalwar got worried that such a beautiful Lord may get Drushti and does Mangalasasanam.
Pallandu,pallandu pallayirath aandu*
Pala koti noor ayiram*Mallanda thin tholl manivanna*
Un sevadi seviithirukappu*Adiyom odum ninodum*
Piru indri ayiram pallandu*Vadivay nin vala marpinil *
vaghkindra mangayum Pallandu*Vadivar sothi valtath urayum
sudar azhiyum Pallandu*Padai por pukku muzhangum ap panchasanniyamum
