Suprabhātam (Sanskrit: सुप्रभातम्), literally auspicious dawn is a Sanskrit poem of the Suprabhātakāvya genre. It is a collection of hymns or verses recited early morning to awaken the deity in Hinduism. The metre chosen for a Suprabhātam poem is usually Vasantatilakā. The idea of awakening the deity in the morning traces its origins to Tamil bhakti literature. These were called Thiruppalliyelucci (literally, the auspicious awakening). Numerous poems were composed by saints on Shiva and Vishnu, the most popular being Manikkavacakar's poem on Shiva and Andal's poem on Sri Ranganatha (Vishnu). Acharyas who come from the lineage of Ramanuja, adapted this form into Sanskrit in later times. In Sanskrit, the Suprabhātakāvya finds its first (1.23.2) in the Bālakāṇḍa of Vālmīki's Rāmāyaṇa, where Viśvāmitra calls out to Rāma to wake up.
