Simple translation (based on vAdhi kEsari azhagiya maNavALa jIyar‘s 12000 padi)

emperumAn, the lord, is having the ability to cause destruction of the strong sins occurring to the group of his devotees; he is having many types of innumerable weapons starting with SrI panchAyudham; he is having the greatness of being the father of the youthful kAmadhEva who has great physical beauty and five arrows; for us who are helpless in samsAra having the wealth of servitude towards the servitors of servitors of the blemishless devotees of such emperumAn, his mercy should occur. The term kUtta val vinai also implies sins derived through attachment [to worldly pleasures]. When recited as “chadhu mUrththi” (instead of sadhir mUrththi), it implies the different forms of emperumAn.

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

  • thamargaL kUtta val vinaiyai nAsam seyyum – One who would destroy the strong sins that enter the group of SrIvaishNavar. Alternative explanation – one who would destroy the collective strong sins of his servitors. Another explanation – as the servitors increase their sins, he will destroy them. Just as it is natural for the servitor to increase his sins [due to being in this material world], it is natural for emperumAn to always destroy them.
  • chadhu mUrththi – emperumAn will assume many apt forms to destroy the enemies [of devotees]. Just as the AthmA [in liberated state] will assume many forms to engage in service, emperumAn will assume many forms to engage in protecting the devotees.
  • amar koL … – One who has divine weapons such as thiruvAzhi (divine chakra) etc which are ready to battle, for the elimination of the enemies.
  • kumaran – He remains eternally youthful.
  • kOlam … – One who is the father of kAmadhEva who has five arrows. It is said that even the beauty of kAmadhEva who thinks “There is none beyond me for beauty” is originating from emperumAn himself. AzhwAr is saying that he should be at the ultimate state of servitude for the SrIvaishNavas who are ananya prayOjanas (who expect nothing but service) towards emperumAn being captivated by his charming youth and beauty.
  • sadhirE vAykka – This ultimate goal should occur eternally.
  • thamiyERkE – Even in the past, one needs to search and locate SrI SathrugnAzhwAn for such bhAgavatha SEshathvam (servitude towards bhAgavathas, in this case, SrI bharathAzhwAn) and in the present there is none who matches AzhwAr’s nature, AzhwAr is saying “for us who are lonely”. In the previous pAsuram, AzhwAr said “nangatku” (for us) since he is not lonely after singing thiruvAimozhi 2.8kEsavan thamar“; here AzhwAr is saying “thamiyERku” (us who are lonely) since there is no match for him among samsAris (worldly people).
