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

  • thuyarangaL … – Oh krishNa who causes sorrows!
  • sudar nIL mudiyAy – Meditating upon his wealth is also as harmful as his divine crown. piLLAn explains this as AzhwAr reminiscing what he experienced previously in thiruvAimozhi 7.7.10muRRa im mU ulagum viriginRa sudar mudikkE oRRumaik koNdadhu” (my heart became attached to the radiant, divine crown [of emperumAn] which is spreading like radiance, having the complexion of shining gems and pervading the world which has three types of chEthanas and achEthanas). Because it has to be enquired and learned from him, it is said to be tormenting.
  • thuyaram sey … – The pride of being “dhAsOham” (I am a servitor) is priceless. Unlike that, the pride which causes sorrow by thinking “sOham” (I am he [supreme lord]).
  • madhan … – Arrogance caused by worldly joy, and the lust which leads to destruction as said in SrI bhagavath gIthA 2.62 and SrI bhagavath gIthA 2.63 “sangAth sanjAyathE kAma: … budhdhinASAth praNaSyathi” (from attachment occurs lust … due to destruction of intelligence, he himself perishes). bhagavath kAmam is unlike that [it leads to uplifting].
  • thulaiyAy – as pramANam (authentic text) which measures [one’s state/progress].
  • nilaiyAy nadaiyAy – Explains sthAvara [plants, stationary] and jangama [animals, mobile]. Also explains existence and movements [of previously explained aspects]. You are causing sorrows in this manner!
  • ivai enna suNdAyangaLE – This is enjoyable sport for you. But this is causing sorrow for us.
