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

  • kANmingaL ulagIr enRu kaN mugappE nimirndha thALiNaiyan thannai – thrivikraman emperumAn who is having the divine feet which grew in front of them [people of the world] after having tricked them as a magician since they won’t agree if he said “I am going to place my feet on your head! Come closer!”.
  • kANmingaL – Since they will pull back if he places his divine feet on their heads, he tricked them with the amazing act [of growing tall suddenly].
  • kurugUrch chatakOpan sonna – This is considered trustworthy since it is spoken by AzhwAr who enjoyed emperumAn‘s saulabhyam [easily approachable].
  • ANai Ayiraththu – Those who are experts in this decad which explains emperumAn’s orderly conduct of this world. viNNOr – nithyasUris, will admire them forever. There is no kONai – difficulty/shortcoming in it. How is this possible? How come a nithyasamsAri who learns this [and masters it] becomes admirable for nithyasUris who are untouched by the defects of samsAram? Even while being in paramapadham, mukthAthmAs (liberated persons) can meditate on the material realm considering it to be bhagavAn‘s wealth and become blissful. This person who is in this material realm, can experience the same feeling while being in this material realm itself. nithyasUris will eternally glorify such persons thinking “While being in material realm, how can someone have such experience!”.

In the next article we will enjoy the next decad.
