Legend tells us of a young girl in the ninth century who swears to marry none but Vishnu. She appropriates a garland meant for him - a transgressive act, yet one of singular devotion. Born of her boundless, consuming love for Vishnu are the two exquisite Tamil poems, Tiruppaval and Nacciyar Tirumoli. These compositions, in which Vishnu is her awesome, mesmerizing and sometimes cruel lover, give expression to Kotai's powerful experiences and her vibrant, bold sensuality.
