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

  • sOlai … – Sriya:pathi who is eternally residing in thirukkadiththAnam which is having invigorating, attractive gardens.
  • madhiL kurugUrAzhwArthirunagari which is surrounded by fort which stops the sorrows of this samsAram from entering inside.
  • satakOpan sol – As said in SrI rAmAyaNam bAla kANdam “raghuvara charitham muni praNItham” (History of SrI rAghava (SrI rAma) spoken by the sage vAlmIkI bhagavAn [who only speaks about SrI rAma]). The thousand pAsurams which resemble a mixture of milk and nectar; or this decad which resemble a mixture of milk and nectar. This indicates the proper match between the words and the meanings. ALavandhAr‘s explanation – pAl (milk) indicates thirumAl (SrIman nArAyaNa) who resides in thirukkadiththAnam. amudhu (nectar) indicates nammAzhwAr‘s words.
  • ippaththum viyandhu mElai vaigundhaththu iruththum – This decad would think “It is amazing that in this samsAram (materialistic world) there is someone who recites this decad” and will place that person in the supreme abode, SrIvaikuNtam. It will place such person in the supreme abode where one need not go through the suffering as in previous decad “mAyakkUththA” and will grant eternal experience to such person.

In the next article we will enjoy the next decad.
