Oh Dayaa DEvi! There are a lot of similarities between Yourself and Periya PirAtti (MahA Lakshmi). Periya PirAtti resides on Your Lord’s chest and You reside in the mind of Your Lord. Periya PirAtti accompanies Your Lord in every incarnation of His and helps Him. You also stay with Your Lord in all His incarnations and assist Him. If there is no Dayaa (KaruNaa), there could not be any avathArams. PirAtti removes the sins of ChEthanams. The Paapams of ChEthanams run away from places, where You are present. PirAtti is worshipped in Her role as the Empress of the Lord by Kshamaa (BhUmi DEvi) and others. BhUmi DEvi (Kshamaa) stays under Your suzerainty and follows Your niyamanams. PirAtti is the Mother of the Universe. Oh Dayaa Devi! You serve as the Mother of the Universe also since You are responsible for the creation of the Universe. Periya Piratti confers MangaLams in this world and blesses us with Moksha anugraham in the other world. Oh DayA Devi! You play a similar role in this matter since the chEthanams gain MangaLams in this and the other world with Your power. Periya Piratti stays in Sri Vaikuntam with Her eternal auspicious ThirumEni. Her permanent abode of Srivaikuntam is totally devoid of TamO guNam. Oh Dayaa Devi! You volunteer to reside permanently in the hearts of righteous ones (Saadhus), which are completely free from TamO guNam. Thus there are many similarities between Yourself (Dayaa DEvi) and Periya PirAtti. adiyEn is inclined therefore to think that both of You have the same roopam and are one and the same Devi of the Lord at Sri Vaikuntam.
