Oh Sriya:pathi who remained in standing posture and is having the lengthy divine feet which fully measured the seven anchoring mountains, seven islands, the respective ocean which surrounds those islands and the seven worlds starting from bhUmi and who is having the divine chakra! When are you mercifully thinking to acknowledge me to remain under your divine feet which are naturally beautiful and are decorated with abundantly beautiful ornaments and serve them? koNdaruLi is also recited as koNdaruLa.

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

  • enRE – When emperumAn said “we will fulfil your desire” AzhwAr asks “when?”
  • ennai – Me who cannot remain without caring for you.
  • un … – Under your naturally beautiful divine feet which are decorated with abundantly beautiful ornaments. The divine feet which must be performed mangaLASAsanam.
  • ninRE Atcheyya – Instead of accepting favours and leaving as said in yajur vEdham “dhEhimE dhadhAmi thE” (I will do something for you and you grant me something), to serve continuously.
  • nI koNdaruLa – Unlike my climbing on a resting elephant , you should consider in your divine heart that I should be engaged in some service.
  • ninaippadhudhAn – Only emperumAn‘s thought/desire will lead to results. AzhwAr considers that his own desire is useless.
  • kunREzh … – When emperumAn’s seated posture in thiruvaNparisAram itself as said in previous pAsuram “vaN parisAraththirundha” deserves to be performed mangaLASAsanam, when he performs super-human activities, should he not be performed mangaLASAsanam? Oh Sriya:pathi who is having the lengthy divine feet which measured the seven anchoring mountains, seven islands, the seven oceans which surround them and the seven types of worlds, in standing posture itself and who is having the divine chakra in his hand! When will I pamper and massage your tender divine feet to relax them, which measured the uneven earth though you are the Sriya:pathi who are carrying the divine weapons such as Sanka, chakra etc? Alternatively, AzhwAr is saying “You who can accomplish most difficult tasks, should mercifully think that I should reach your divine feet and serve there”.
