Highlights from nampiLLai‘s vyAkyAnam as documented by vadakkuth thiruvIdhip piLLai

  • It is explained in two ways:
    • emperumAn is “aNangena Adum en angam vaNangi vazhipadum Isan piNangi amarar pithaRRum guNam kezhu koLgaiynAn”  (my body dancing like divinely possessed, worships the sarvEsvaran in the form of obeisances, etc., whose qualities are discussed by nithyasUris”.
    • piNangi amarar pithaRRum guNam kezhu koLgaiyinAnAna Isanai anubaviththu aNangu ena Adum en angam vaNangi vazhipadum” (On enjoying bhagavAn whose qualities are discussed by nithuasUris, my body like being possessed will dance and will worship him).
  • aNangu ena Adum en angam – dancing like being possessed; worshiping emperumAn as if that is the only work.
  • piNangi amarar pithaRRum – While debating the various qualities, one starts with glorifying ones own favourite quality, but ends up glorifying the quality that is favoured by the others; they become upset with each other wanting to glorify each of their favourite qualities – the one who is the abode of such auspicious qualities;
  • guNam kezhu koLgaiyinAnE – Just like an ocean having unlimited precious stones/gems/pearls in it, emperumAn who is having unlimited auspicious qualities; One who has such auspicious qualities naturally in full. AzhwAr says he is going through the same emotions like nithyasUris who are sarvagyas (omniscient).
