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

  • kaNdE kaLikkinRadhu ingu enRukol kaNgaL – Let me do whatever I can; when will the fatigue of my eyes end?

When asked “Certainly AzhwAr will see him one day; now, what is the reason to force him?” AzhwAr says,

  • thoNdE unakkAy ozhindhEn … – Without any diversion, I have become fully desirous on your divine feet. My desire is so much that I cannot lose this even for a fraction of a moment. thurisu – contact with undesirable aspects for the mind.
  • vaNdu … – Just as the buds/fragrance, even the beetles are present in the flowers. The town which is having such gardens with beetle-filled flowers. Greatly enjoyable town which would not let those who entered it, leave it, as said in chAndhOgya upanishath 8.15 “na cha punarAvarthathE” (there is no return).
  • koNdE uRaiginRa – The town which is celebrated in his divine heart thinking “This is the apt abode where my devotees and I can interact as desired” and where he is residing.
  • em kOvalar kOvE – Just as you incarnated as krishNa and became easily approachable for the cowherd clan, you arrived in thirunAvAy and became easily approachable for me!
