(Commentary) By entering the Nanmugan Kottai entrance, Manavala Mamunigal go round in the order of worshipping Andal, Ramanuja, Nammalvar, Sriranga Vimanam, Senaimudaliyar, Garudazhwar, Sriranganathan, Sriranganachchiyar and also worships the deities like Sri Bhoomi Pirattiyar, Neela Devi, Nammalvar and other Alwars besides Paramapadanathan in the Sannidhi of Paramapadanathan. Erumbiappa worships only Mamunigal and not other deities. Why he has not worshipped the other deities? He worships only Mamunigal, as Mamunigal already worshipped other deities and worshipping him suffices. Since he is Acharya parathantra, he worshipped only Mamunigal. In the words of Bharadwaja, it is said that while worshipping Emberuman in Archa form, one has to worship with intense devotion. One has to worship His paraphernalia, bhaktas and Acharyas also. Accordingly, Mamunigal did mangalasasanam to Sriranganatha, along with Andal and other bhaktas, Senaimudaliyar and other paraphernalia. Andal, who is the Avatara of Bhoomi Devi, submits to Varahapperumal that she is a bhakta, disciple and servant to Him. (Aham Sishyacha daseecha bhakta cha Purushottama). Bhooma Devi and Neela Devi and Periya Piratti, otherwise called Sriranganachchiyar are in the group of wives to Him. Hence, Mamunigal while doing mangalasasana to Sriranganatha, also worshipped the wives, paraphernalia, Acharya and other bhaktas. Erumbiappa also worships Mamunigal in the presence of all every day.
