If we set out to prove that you are the organs such as karmEndhriya and gyAnEndhria such as hands, feet etc which are well seated in the body and all pleasures such as rasa, rUpa, sparSa, Sabdha and gandha which engage the mind deeply, there is no boundary for the subtle aspects.

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

  • enna iyaRkaigaLAl enganE ninRittAy en kaNNA – With what type of nature and in what forms, do you remain? Oh krishNa who is obedient towards me!
  • thunnu … – You are the controller for all the organs such as karmEndhriyam and gyAnEndhriyam which are closely located, and for the pleasures such as Sabdha etc which are meditated upon and desired for.
  • unnai uNara uRil – If we set out to know you.
  • ulappu illai nuNukkangaLE – There is no end for your greatness. As said in “aNIyAmsam aNIyasAm” (one who is very subtle), AthmAs have pervaded achith (insentient objects) everywhere, and emperumAn is pervading both AthmAs and achith, in a subtle manner.
