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

  • numarOdum piriyAdhEparAnguSa nAyaki thinks about prApya vasthu (bhagavAn, who is the goal) as “thamarOdanguRaivAr” (one who resides there with his devotees); these herons are also happily living in that manner. Should those who are fully satisfied not help those who are not satisfied! It is apt for one who ate to satisfy the hunger of the hungry person.
  • nIrum num sEvalumAy – You and your spouse who interact according to the desires of each other. Should you who understand the pleasure of union not understand the sorrow of the separated one!
  • amar kAdhal kurugu inangAL – Love which is well placed in each other. In desire, isn’t there the desire which does not lead to separation! To begin with, you have complete desire, without any separation, and you are also interacting with mutual understanding! Though she started calling them “kuruginangAL“, due to lack of strength she could not even complete her sentence and became sorrowful thinking about her state.
  • emarAlum pazhippuNdu – aNimUzhikkaLaththu uRaiyum thammAlum pazhippuNdu – Due to the momentary union, the relatives abandoned her; due to the same union, he too abandoned her. He should have accepted me due to having been abandoned by my relatives; he should have accepted me since he descended here to present his audience to those who have missed him previously; both of these have become the reasons for his abandoning of me!
  • ingu en – What is the purpose of my presence here? Have I attained him or do I have my relatives? Should he not keep me in his protection after those who are here have abandoned me? Would these samsAris (materialistic people) not abandon one, the day one starts entering into bhagavath vishayam (spiritual matters)?

Leaving such sorrow at that, again, due to her sorrow, she starts telling them (herons),

  • thamarOdu angu uRaivArkku – Ask him “Would we not be acceptable for emperumAn who is residing there with his devotees?” Ask him “Would those who remain as said in thiruvAimozhi 2.3.10adiyAr kuzhAngaL udan kUduvadhu enRukolO‘ (when will I unite with the groups of devotees in paramapadham?) be not acceptable for this beautiful presence of emperumAn along with his devotees?”
