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

  • sAyak kurundham osiththa thamiyaRku – The one who on his own uprooted and felled the kurundhu tree which had well grown branches due to being possessed by a demon. For the one who demonstrated his valour, in the absence of nambi mUththapirAn (balarAma). parAnguSa nAyaki thinks emperumAn will help her too in her loneliness.
  • mAyach chakadam udhaiththa maNALaRku – [mAya has two meanings – mischievous, to finish] Implies mischievous wheel; to completely destroy the wheel as said in thiruvAimozhi 6.9.4 “thaLarndhum muRindhum sagadavasurar udal vERAp piLandhu” (the body of demon in the wheel, became tired and broke into pieces).
  • maNALaRku – Just as SrI rAma broke the bow and captivated the divine daughter of SrI janaka, he manifested this activity to parANguSa nAyaki and made her exist exclusively for himself.
  • pEyaip piNam pada pAl uN pirAnukku – The great benefactor krishNa who consumed the milk of pUthanA and killed her, unlike SrI rAma who let sUrpaNakA go free to cause harm in future.
  • en vAsak kuzhali – For my daughter who has naturally fragrant hair. This is the cause for calling emperumAn as “sarvagandha:” (root of all fragrances). thiruvAimozhi 10.10.2 “vAsam sey pUnguzhalAL” (One who has very fragrant hair).
  • izhandhadhu mANbE – He manifested his masculine aspects [valourous acts] and captured her femininity. mANbu also implies beauty.
