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

  • meyyan Agum … – For those who are ananyaprayona, whoever they may be, he will completely fulfil their desires; for those who surrender unto emperumAn seeking other benefits, he will eagerly grant those benefits which lead to bondage and keep himself away from them. For those who remain as said in mahAbhAratham dhrONa parvam “krishNASraya: krishNa balA: krishNa nAthAScha pANdavA:” (for the pANdavas, krishNa is the final goal to be attained, krishNa is their strength and krishNa is their Lord), he will remain truthful; as he gave his nArAyaNa sEnai (army of his associates) and gOpAla sEnai (army of cowherds) to dhuryOdhana who came praying for army, he remained with pANdavas and destroyed dhuryOdhana et al and hence remained untruthful to them.
  • seyyil … – emperumAn, the supreme relative who is standing in thirukkaNNapuram where the fish are jumping around and living joyfully in the fields. Implies that the abode is so enjoyable that even the animals are living there joyfully. For those who keep him in their hearts
  • , he will be their servitor; for those who are ananyaprayOjana, he will remain as said in  SrI rAmAyaNam bAla kANdam 31.4 SrI rAma tells viSvAmithra “imau sma muniSArdhUla! kinkarau sampasthithau | AgyApaya yathEshtam vai SAsanam karavAva kim ||” (Oh best among sages! We are near you to serve your highness. You can order us. What should we do?)
