emperumAn, the amazing personality, entered me as if accepting my service and consumed my AthmA and kept me inside; even after doing that, my AthmA which appears to have some enjoyment remaining in it, will praise thirukkAtkarai; it will stand in there and call him who is obedient, as “kaNNA”; it will think about increasing the desire to enjoy, become broken and will melt to become fluid.

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

  • kAtkarai EththumAzhwAr will praise emperumAn‘s abode even more than praising emperumAn himself.
  • adhanuL kaNNA ennum – The greatness acquired after entering this town, which is greater than his parathvam (supremacy). As he says “en kaNNA”, he will praise kAtkarai; as he praises the town, he will then praise emperumAn; he does not go anywhere beyond him and his town.
  • vEtkai nOy kura ninaindhu – Meditating to increase the desire to enjoy.
  • karaindhugum – Will become broken, and melt to make others think that there is no form.
  • AtkoLvAn oththu en uyir uNda mAyanAl – By the amazing personality who entered me as if accepting my service and flattened me; AzhwAr is explicitly revealing what he concealed previously saying “thiruvaruL” (divine mercy). The amazing aspect is – when emperumAn was together with Azhwar, he remained humble and interacted blissfully with AzhwAr.
  • en Ar uyir kOL uNdE – kOL kuRaipattadhu – Even after consuming my AthmA fully (there was some remainder in me); AzhwAr is thinking that there is still some enjoyment left in self, since emperumAn is still pursuing AzhwAr; since AzhwAr remains in anguish still, he thinks that there is still something left in self. AzhwAr is thinking that a sarvagya (omniscient) [lord] will not show so much love in something which does not exist.
