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

  • illai allal – All sorrows will disappear.
  • enakkEl ini en kuRai – What is there to worry for me, now? Since all the hurdles for enjoying bhagavAn, which are the sorrows, have been eliminated, do I need to go and find the special abode [of paramapadham] for my enjoyment?
  • alli … – One who has the divine chest which is the permanent abode of periya pirAttiyAr. The one [SrI mahAlakshmi] who says as in SrI rAmAyaNam yudhdha kANdam 116-45 “nakaSchin nAparAdhyathi” (there is none who has not committed a wrongful deed) is with him, so that he would not abandon those who surrender unto him, finding faults in them. As one says the name of the town “thirukkaNNapuram” [their sorrows will be eliminated]. Those who do not have the tools/faculties to engage in bhakthi yOgam and those who do not have the firm faith to perform prapaththi, can simply say “thirukkaNNapuram” to have all their sorrows eliminated.

In the next article we will enjoy the next pAsuram.
