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

  • kaRkum … – She said “There is no boundary to what I learn from sAndhIpani within a short span of time”. Alternatively – she is saying “I am not properly situated to learn Sruthi (vEdham) which is stated in thaiththirIya upanishath “yathO vAchO nivarthanthE” (the speech returned unable to comprehend bhagavAn‘s qualities). I am not inside the boundary to learn. Another explanation – I am the knower of vEdhAntham as said in “vEdhAntha vizhup poruLin mEl irundha viLakkai” (the light atop the vEdhAntham).
  • AvEnum – Did I just not remain incomprehensible by vEdhAntham? Are they not at my complete disposal? This is explained in “thvamEva vidhyA” (you are the knowledge).
  • seyvEnum – She said “I will create that knowledge at the appropriate times”.
  • kaRkum kalvi thIrppEnum – She said “I will eliminate any doubts in them and establish the essence in them”. There are those who are greatly learned yet say “sUnyamE thathvam” (voidness is truth). Also explained as, parAnguSa nAyaki saying “those students and teachers are at my disposal”. Would thIrppEn (finish) mean teaching/learning? Yes. thIrkkai means seeking the ultimate aspect of it.
  • sAramum – She is saying that “I am the result of those essential aspects of that knowledge”.
  • nAthan vandhERak kolO – Did the all knowing lord enter into my daughter?
  • kaRkum … – What shall I say to you who don’t even know the very basics of bhagavath vishayam, to learn and know now?
  • kaRkum … – What shall I say about the engagement of my daughter in this manner? She is of very tender nature  and is not speaking at all while earlier she would repeat every word and not say a word of her own.
