maNavALamAmunigaL as giving darshan at thiruvaheendhrapuram
He asks in his mind, “dhEvarIr (your highness) divined ‘pinnavarum kaRka upadhEsamAip pEsuginREn manniya seer veNpAvil vaiththu [pAsuram 1]’ (that I am saying it as an advice using veNpA poetry form, for future generation to learn and follow), but those who are immersed in jealousy would criticize this effort wouldn’t they?”; and then he calms down his mind by saying that there is no harm done, and such behaviour of them is nothing to be surprised about.
kaRROrgaL thAm ugappar – As said in ‘aRiyak kaRRu vallAr [thiruvAimozhi 5.5.11]’ (~ those who learn and understand well), such AchAryas would be happy, saying, Ah! he is advising through this prabandham what we wanted to advise; Or the meaning for the phrase can be said as: those who learned this prabandham through their AchAryan (will be happy);
next it talks about the nature of those who, unlike such learned people, are interested in now learning and understanding this:
kalvi thannil Asai uLLOr peRROm ena ugandhu pinbu kaRpar – When we would have had to learn with great efforts from those who have learned and understood, now we are getting very easily through this prabandham! – and so the people who are very interested in learning this would say and become happy like they got a big wealth, by getting this, (pinbu kaRpar) and they would learn well from those who have learned and understood well, and be satisfied.
maRROrgal etc. – different from the aforementioned two kinds of people – Others;
They are: ‘aRindhavar pAl chenRu sErudhal (seRidhal) seyyA[dha] thee manaththar (gyAna sAram – 27]’ (bad-hearted ones who would not go to and learn from the learned);
mAchchariyaththAl igazhil – if they find faults due to jealousy.. jealousy is – as said in ‘piRar minukkam poRAmai [Arththi prabandham – 55], others’ jealousy is shown in real; that is, if they cannot tolerate the growth/greatness of others and if they find fault and ridicule/spurn;
vandhadhu en nenjE – Oh mind! as you are fully in congruence with the one (emperumAn) who possesses all the glories, there is no worry/problem (if they find faults); since they are ‘manakkuRRa mAndhar [rAmAnusa nURRanthAdhi – 5]’ (~people whose mind is faulty), if they ridicule, then that would be a praise is what we think isn’t it?
Still if they would ridicule shouldn’t we stop (the prabandham),
igazhgai AchchariyamO thAnavarkku – for those who would grow plump when they ridicule (happy to be ridiculing others), it is not a surprize if they ridicule (our prabandham). So it is according to their nature;
From this, we conclude that the liking and disliking of good and the bad people respectively both would add to the greatness of the prabandham.
