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

Oh clouds which are having attractive form! emperumAn whose form reveals his lordship over everyone as said in “rUpamEva asya EthanmahimAnam vyAchashtE“, is residing in thirumUzhikkaLam which is popularly known as said in thirunedundhANdagam 10 “pinnAnAr vaNangum sOdhi”. When you go to him since I, who am having cruel sin, am sending you as my messenger and when you make a statement “mercifully grant her your perfectly enjoyable divine form”, will he eliminate the radiance of his divine form which he previously gave to you and reject your stay in the distinguished sky? She is saying “for emperumAn who bestows this favour to those who request it for themselves, eliminating sArUpyam (having similar form as bhagavAn) and vishNupadhASrayathvam (residing in paramapadham) for requesting on my behalf, does not fit”.

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

  • thirumEni adigaLukku – One who is manifesting his lordship in his physical beauty itself, other than the same which is seen in his svarUpa (nature), rUpa (form), guNa (qualities) and vibhUthi (wealth); also said as one who won over the whole universe with his physical beauty. His form is attractive even for unfavourable ones as said in mahAbhAratham sabhA parvam “… avaSA prathipEdhirE” (On seeing krishNa, they offered respects etc without realising it).
  • thIvinaiyEn vidu thUdhAy – Engaging as my messenger, where I am so sinful to have lost emperumAn‘s form which is available for everyone, and to fall at your feet.
  • thirumUzhikkaLam ennum – The abode which is popularly known to be the place where emperumAn is standing to protect the suffering ones.
  • sezhu nagar – Greatness [of thirumUzhikkaLam] over paramapadham. Three meanings explained – a) Oh beautiful clouds present in the distinguished abode! b) Inform the lord who is in the distinguished abode c) Go to the distinguished abode and inform.
  • thirumEni avatkaruLIr – You tell him “Can you not present your divine form which is existing for the sake of others, to those who desire for it?” You tell him that his divine form belongs to those who desired for it as said in jithanthE sthOthram “bhakthAnAm” (for the devotees); for a kAmini (lady in love with a man), there is more desire for her man’s form than his true nature etc.
  • aruLIr – After losing your love for me, have you lost your krupai (mercy) also?
  • enRakkAl – As said in SrI rAmAyaNam sundhara kANdam 39.10 “vAchA dharmam avApnuhi”  (become righteous through your speech), don’t you just need to speak a word?
  • ummai – All of you who are my benefactors.
  • than thirumEni oLi agaRRith theLivisumbu kadiyumE – Would he eliminate the radiance in your form and drive you away from the pure sky? Instead of giving you that which you don’t have, would he take away what you already have and punish you? Would he not give full equivalence as said in muNdaka upanishath 3.1.3 “paramam sAmyam upaithi” (he attains supreme equivalence) instead of minimal equivalence and presence in supreme sky (SrIvaikuNtam) other than the [material] sky? How can you be relaxed while your words will lead to same result for both you and me?
