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

  • pOginRa … –  Taking care of me in all three times (past, present and future) like a mother, doing what a father who is focused on the well-being of the child would do and even if they give up as said in SrI rAmAyaNam sundhara kANdam 38.33 “sa pithrA cha parithyaktha:” (being given up by his (kAkAsura) own mother and father), like ones’ own AthmA would care for oneself, after attaining you who is being the apt lord and the one who favoured, how can I, who has gratitude, leave him?
  • pAginRa … – As said in SrI rAmAyaNam sundhara kANdam 21.20 “vidhitha: …” (known by everyone popularly as virtuous and one who is affectionate towards the surrendered ones), emperumAn being well-known and spread even in the enemy camp, naturally having auspicious qualities, being the lord of the three worlds (all worlds and the residents of such worlds).
  • paramA – After highlighting you for such qualities and protection, if we think about any one else matching such greatness, having no such person and being greater than all. To be understood as – having such greatness, to accept my service, you have arrived into the cool thirumalA; I have attained you, would I leave you now?
  • thaN thuzhAy virai nARu kaNNiyanE – Having accepted AzhwAr and eliminated all his sufferings, giving him wonderful experience and having his own doubts of “what if AzhwAr leaves?” also eliminated, emperumAn is gracefully standing there with the beautiful garlands which have wonderful fragrance and design.
