Word by word meaning

innadhOr thanmaiyar Ay – thus, having such nature
Ingu udalam vittezhundhu – leaving the physical body in this world and rising up
thol neRikkaN senRAr enappadum sol allAl – other than saying that he reached an ancient place
innadhu Or kAlaththu idhu peRRAr – on a specific day, a particular person reached mOksham (SrIvaikuNtam)
ennavum kEttaRivadhillai – has not been heard, as told by someone


innadhOr thanmaiyarAy – being constantly amidst difficulties, acquiring that (sorrowful state) as his nature, even if he gets heavenly bliss as a result of his penance, can he relish it?

Ingudalam vittezhundhu – in this world, wherein one can enjoy whatever one thinks of, he leaves behind his body, which he considers as a favourable entity having lived with it for such a long time, and rises up.

thonneRikkan senRAr enappadum sol allAl – other than hearing that he had reached the ancient mOksham (SrIvaikuNtam)

innadhOr kAlaththu – at a specific point of time

inaiyAr idhu peRRAr ennavum kEttaRivadhillai – we have not heard from someone, through his (her) own words that he (she) has attained this benefit. While we have heard of proof that someone has reached mOksham  through vEdhas, we have not heard it in person, as proof. We have heard that “Sukar has attained mukthi (reached mOksham)” or “vAmadhEva has attained mukthi” but we have not heard anyone say “I have reached mOksham and enjoyed the mukthas (those who have been liberated from samsAram and who have attained SrIvaikuNtam) there”. While rushis have said that Sukar and vAmadhEva have attained mukthi , can we not hear this from Sukar or vAmadhEva? This is not possible since there is none who has said “I had gone to SrIvaikuNtam; this is how it is there”.

In the next article, we will discuss the next part of this prabandham.
