Sriman Yathindra tava divya padabjasevam
Srisailanatha karunaparinamadattam /
Thamanvaham mama vivardhaya natha tasyaha
Kamam viruddamakilancha nevartaya tvam /

(w to w) Sriman Yathindra  – Yathiraja, who possesses everlasting wealth of  granting liberation to His Acharyas and His disciples, tvam – Yourself, me – for myself,  karunaparinamadattam  – given by the mercy of my Acharya Tirumalai Azhawar otherwise called Tiruvoymozhippillai,  tham –such great, tava divya padabjasevam  – to perform service at Your feet, anvaham – daily, vivardhaya  – to be flourished. This means that the descendents of Sri Ramanuja’s servants lineage has to perform this service till the end – that is to be flourished by him.  natha  -Yathiraja!, tasyaha  – for such service, viruddam akilam-  all obstacles, kamam  nevartaya  – should be eradicated.

(Commentary) In this Sloka, Mamunigal completes the prayer for doing service to Sri Ramanuja’s disciples and Sri Ramanuja, which he began in Slokas 3 and 4 respectively. The word sevam vardhaya means the sustenance of service to Sri Ramanuja is requested. The prefix in the word vivardhaya, ’ vi’  means that the upkeep of service to Sri Ramanuja’s disciples is requested. With this, it is considered that accepting the service by Sri Ramanuja is that he is the means to eradicate the obstacles for that service and nourish the same. Mamunigal’s awareness about Sri Ramanuja was only by Thiruvaymozhipillai which is to be noted here. The obstacles for the service to Sri Ramanuja are as follows – experience of worldly matters and enjoyment of swarga etc., experience of soul, doing service for their enjoyment to the Lord and not for the sake of Sri Ramanuja.
