My daughter, parAnguSa nAyaki said “I am all the land which is seen”; she said “I am the ether which is seen”; she said “I am the hot fire, which is main among the luminous objects”; she said “I am all these vAyus, which arrive previous [to fire, in creation sequence], which are in close proximity, due to sustaining us”; she said “I am all the water, which is the next element [to air in creation sequence]”; Has sarvESvaran who is having an ocean like attractive form, entered into her? Oh you who don’t know anything beyond this world which you are seeing! In what way can I explain the actions of my very beautiful daughter who can see what is not seen by any one?

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

  • kANginRa nilam … – She is saying that the whole land mass which cannot be seen if one sets out to see them, is at my disposal. This is the pruthvi (earth) which is in the form of effect and can be seen by our eyes. If this itself is so vast, the nature of the pruthvi which is in the causal form can only be known by SAsthram and is much greater than the visible earth.
  • kANginRa visumbu … –  She said that the AkASam (ether/space) which provides space for this vast earth, which cannot be fully seen, is also at her disposal.
  • kANginRa ikkARRu … – In the same manner, she said that the fire and the air which can be felt, are at her disposal.
  • kANginRa kadal vaNNan … – She said that the ocean which cannot be fully seen by those who desire to see it, is also at her disposal. Did the sarvESvaran who is having invigorating ocean like form, where the onlookers cannot take their eyes off, come and enter her?
  • kANginRa ulagaththIrkku … – As you too are watching her like me, what can I tell you now; is there any difference between you and me, in being unable to explain her state?
  • kANginRa en kArigai … – What can I explain about my daughter who is immersed in the infinite emperumAn as said in thaiththirIya upanishath “yathO vAchO nivarthanthE” (the speech returned unable to measure bhagavAn‘s qualities) and is speaking about him?
