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

  • vaiththEn madhiyAl enadhu uLLaththu agaththE – I placed him in my heart with my permission; just for a simple permission, what a great benefit I attained!
  • eyththE ozhivEn allEn – From now onwards, I will never become weakened and suffer.

When asked “How long will this remain true?” AzhwAr says,

  • enRum eppOdhum – On all days and in all states.
  • moyththu Ey thirai – In the invigorating kshIrAbdhi, where the waves gather together and flow in a matching manner. Even if a small drop falls on emperumAn [and AdhiSEshan], his tenderness is such that it makes one say “huge wave hit him”.
  • paiththEy sudarp pAmbaNai – AdhiSEsha who is having expanded hoods which stop the waves from hitting emperumAn‘s divine form, and is having matching radiance due to [constant] enjoyment of bhagavAn; emperumAn having greatness due to resting on such AdhiSEsha.
  • nam paranai – One who revealed such greatness to us; emperumAn entered AzhwAr‘s divine heart as said in periyAzhwAr thirumozhi 5.2.10 “aravaththamaLiyinOdum azhagiya pARkadalOdum” (emperumAn arrived with his serpent mattress, SrI mahAlakshmi et al into my heart)
