  • madandhaiyai – being in the stage of womanhood which is always enjoyable.
  • vaN kamalath thirumAdhinaiSri mahAlakshmi who is having beautiful lotus flower as her residence.
  • thadam koL … – emperumAn who placed SrI mahAlakshmi in his chest which is spacious to be the private quarters for her, and is having garland which is indicative of his control/wealth. As said in SrIvishNu purANam 1.9.105 “paSyathAm sarvadhEvAnAm yayau vakshasthalam harE:” (Amidst all the dhEvas (celestial beings) who were watching, SrI mahAlakshmi ascended the divine chest of SrI hari), during the churning of ocean to get nectar, that mahAlakshmi desires to climb his divine chest, emperumAn accepts her. My daughter [says AzhwAr’s mother] desired for the richly strung attractive cool fresh thuLasi flower from the divine feet of such emperumAn, and due to not getting it, she fell down and remained in a withered posture.
  • vAL nudhaleer – Oh girls who have forehead which has radiance! when will I see her in your splendour?
  • en madak kombE – Without separating from me, she remains steadfast in her goal and suffering as a result of that.
