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

  • theLi visumbu kadidhu Odi – In the sky which is pure and supportless, moving quickly as if walking quickly on the ground. She considers their urge to be for her sake.
  • thI vaLaiththu min ilagum – Lightning is shining like a ball of fire. The clouds are with lightning just as someone who is dark will carry a lamp along to reveal the presence.
  • oLi mugilgAL – Oh clouds which are having beautiful form due to the contrasting colours!
  • thirumUzhikkaLaththu uRaiyum oNsudarkku – One who has increased radiance due to his eternal residing in thirumUzhikkaLam. Your form resembles his form.
  • theLi visumbu … – He is showing the love he has for parampadham, towards my heart and resides there.
  • thI vinaiyEn – I have committed sin which makes me unable to see him though he is shining in my heart. For this, siRRAL koNdAn explains “Just as one would discuss about the rate of the garment, while the cotton is still in the plant, while he has paramapadham as his royal assembly, ignoring it, to remain in front of me, he is shining in my heart”. But this does not fit with the overall theme of this decad; it is just a statement based on a momentary experience.
  • thuLi vAr kaL kuzhalArkku – For the one who has hari in which hair is overflowing; when an expert wears flowers, we can see the overflowing honey instead of the flower itself.
  • en thUdhu uraiththal seppuminE – Please go an inform the message of me who is having withered flowers in my head, to him. Inform him my state of having to send messenger while he had lovingly said that he will come himself.
