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

  • mANbu … – For SrI vAmana who has beautiful decoration and amazing form. mANbu – azhagu – beauty. mAyam can also mean mischief.
  • sEN sudar … – As he was given water [by mahAbali], he grew. For the one who has a form which is having beautiful splendour like a lofty, radiant mountain.
  • kAN perum thORRaththu – thORRam – azhagu – beauty. Said to be having a form which is pleasing to the eyes and infinitely enjoyable. It can also imply the greatness of the incarnation as said in SrI rAmAyaNam bAla kANdam 3.10 “janma rAmasya sumahath” (The great incarnation of SrI rAma).
  • em kAguththa nambikku – chakravarththith thirumagan who is complete in all qualities. AzhwAr is the one who says as in thiruvAimozhi 3.6.8thayarathaRku magan thannai anRi maRRilEn” (I won’t exist for any one other than the son of dhaSaratha). SrI rAmAyaNam kishkinthA kANdam 15.21 “guNAnAm AkarO mahAn” (the abode of all good qualities).
  • en pUN punai men mulai – One who is having bosoms which are decorated with ornaments and which cannot bear the separation [of emperumAn].
  • thORRadhu poRpE – poRpu means azhagu (beauty). Since it is said “pUN punai men mulai“, she lost the beauty which was acquired by the decoration. My daughter who will give joy to him by making him not think about anyone else due to her beautiful bosoms as said in mUnRAm thiruvandhAdhi 3 “malarAL thanaththuLLAn” (one who resides in the bosom of SrI mahAlakshmi who resides in the flower), has now been defeated here.
