Essence of thiruvAimozhi 2.6

Introduction

In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of pacifying ISvaran as ISvaran unnecessarily doubted “What if AzhwAr who enjoys me saying in thiruvAimozhi 2.5.4appozhudhaikkappozhudhu en ArAvamudham‘ (my unquenchable nectar, every moment), leaves me claiming himself to be unqualified” and is mercifully explaining it.

How is that done? As AzhwAr, who united joyfully with sarvESvaran, said in thiruvAimozhi 2.5.5allAvi uL kalandha” (emperumAn united with the lowly self) and highlighted his lowliness. emperumAn unnecessarily doubted “What if he thinks to leave me as he did in thiruvAimozhi 1.5vaLavEzh ulagu‘?” and became perplexed; seeing that, AzhwAr became blissful thinking “How much subservience and motherly care he has towards me!”  explaining the many reasons why he would not leave emperumAn and eliminating his doubt. Thus he sustains him in thiruvAimozhi 2.6vaikundhA maNivaNNan“; mAmunigaL mercifully explains this starting with “vaigundhan vandhu“.
