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

  • kUdi nIraik kadaindha ARum – The way emperumAn brought dhEvas and asuras together telling them “we will divide the nectar amongst ourselves and consume it”. Only by churning the ocean, emperumAn melted his heart.
  • amudham dhEvar uNNa … – When the result was to be reaped, emperumAn fed the nectar to the dhEvas and made the asuras ignore the nectar saying “throw that nectar to dogs [with disregard]”, by assuming a divine damsel form and have them [asuras] chasing that form – such amazing acts of emperumAn. SrIvishNu purANam “mAyayA mOhayithvA thAn vishNus sthrI rUpamAsthitha:” (vishNu mesmerized the asuras with his mAyA by assuming the form of a damsel). periya thirumozhi 2.6.1 “vAnavaraip peNNAgi amudhUttum perumAnAr” (the great lord who assumed the form of a damsel to feed the nectar to the dhEvas). By the way he churned the ocean and his other amazing acts.
  • Udu pukku – Instead of just being at the outer layer, entering into the inner most layer (heart).
  • enadhu Aviyai – The AthmA which is explained as in SrI bhagavath gIthA 2.24achchEdhya: … adhAhya:” (cannot be cut, burnt).
  • urukki uNdiduginRa nin thannai – You who melted me to become fluid and finished me. I became weakened thinking about your auspicious qualities, wondering “why is the purushOththama (best among men) doing like this?”. You should tell me a good means to sustain myself and enjoy you. When emperumAn asks “Can I sustain you?”, AzhwAr responds – Have you not let AdhiSEshan (parambhOgi – great snake, great enjoyer) sustain and enjoy you? Similarly, you should mercifully let me also sustain and enjoy you.
