• "Naalvar" is a Tamil term that refers to the Four Tamil Saivaite Saints, also known as the "Nayanmars." They were devotees of Lord Shiva and played a significant role in the development and promotion of Shaivism (the worship of Lord Shiva) in ancient Tamil Nadu.
• The Naalvar, namely Appar, Sundarar, Sambandar, and Manikkavacakar, were prominent poet-saints who lived during the 6th to 9th centuries.
• One popular and spiritual golu doll set for the Golu display is the "Navalar" set, which features the dolls of Appar, Sundarar, Thirugnana Sambandar, and Manikkavacakar.
• Golu is a doll and figurine festival held in South India during Navaratri and Dussehra dedicated to the worship of the divine feminine, particularly the goddess Durga. It is a set of steps decorated with bommais (dolls) of all shapes and sizes to tell a story about a Hindu or secular cultural issue. Every Kolu needs a refreshing twist with beautiful dolls.
• They composed numerous hymns in praise of Lord Shiva, which are compiled in the ancient Tamil texts known as the Tevaram and the Tiruvacakam.
• Sambandar pointed heavenward, spontaneously singing his first hymn about Siva, "Thodudaiya Seviyan." The milk is regarded as Sivajnanam, milk of divine wisdom or knowledge of Siva, and the child became known as Thirugnana Sambandar (the saint related to God by knowledge), and as Aludaiya Pillayar.
• The 7th-century poet-saint Thirunavukkarasar pilgrimaged on foot to at least 125 Tamil Nadu temples, humbly sweeping the temple paths, worshiping and composing hymns praising Siva.
• Manikkavacakar was a poet-saint who wrote devotional verses known as "Tiruvachakam." His compositions reflect his devotion to Lord Shiva and his philosophical insights.
• Sundarar was a poet and devotee of Lord Shiva. He is renowned for his songs, called "Thevarams," which express his deep devotion and experiences of spiritual ecstasy.
• Including the Naalvar Golu set in the Golu display is a way to honour and pay homage to the contributions of these saint-poets in the promotion of Shaivism and Tamil literature.
• It serves as a reminder of their devotion, literary prowess, and the deep spiritual connection they had with Lord Shiva.
• Naavlar set is a traditional Kolu doll crafted with clay.
• Decorate your Kolu Padi with this unique collection of Golu bommai for this Navarathri from Giri.
• This Dassara dolls is an ideal present for festivals like Navaratri, Diwali, and housewarmings.
• During Navaratri, people visit each other's homes to see the Golu display and offer prayers. It is considered an auspicious time to seek blessings from the Divine and to celebrate the victory of good over evil."
