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

  • kalanthu ennAvi nalam koL – Bonded with me like water mixing with water (so they cannot be separated) and subsequently established my AthmA‘s eternal servitude towards him.

Did he stop with that?

  • nAthan – As explained in thirunedunthANdagam 25 “ennai ALum koNdu” (ruling over me), eliminated the thought of existing for my own pleasures (and made me exist fully for his pleasure).

Are you the only one who was caught by him like that?

  • pulan koL mANAy nilam koNdAnE – mahAbali too was captured by him; he did not give himself to bhagavAn (like me), but only gave a little bit of land; Assuming a form that will enchant all the senses, emperumAn grabbed the earth which was considered by mahAbali as his own.

In the next article we will enjoy the next pAsuram.
