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

  • andhO aNugap peRu nAL enRu eppOdhum – Due to lack of strength in completing the sentence which he started, AzhwAr is saying andhO (alas). He thought of saying “aNugap peRu nAL yavaikol”.
  • eppOdhum – Instead of giving up after trying to say it once and becoming weakened, he keeps saying it always.
  • sindhai kalangi … – having his heart bewildered; just as an anguished son will call out the names of his mother and father, I will call out “thirumAl” (beloved lord of SrI mahAlakshmi).
  • kondhu Ar … – In thirunAvAy which is surrounded by gardens filled with bunches of flowers. Since the abode has gardens in permanent spring season, it can be said as perfectly enjoyable.
  • vandhE uRaiginRa – Oh one who is eternally residing here for the sake of your devotees with the form that can be seen in paramapadham! Implies “Until you show that form to me, your arrival is as good as false”.
