Simple translation (based on vAdhi kEsari azhagiya maNavALa jIyar‘s 12000 padi)

When dhEvas who know the noble aspects, become fearful of the very strong asuras who engage in evil deeds and take shelter of emperumAn considering “he is our exclusive, distinguished protector whom we surrendered unto”, he tumultuously protects us assuming an apt, desirable form. Oh all of you who are related to us! Speak and think about the glorious fame of thirumOgUr which is such emperumAn’s abode; praise it out of love. kAma rUpam also indicates emperumAn’s feminine form in mOhini avathAram to give nectar to dhEvas.

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

  • nAm adaindha … – The dhEvas sing saying “Our good protection, which we have taken shelter unto”.
  • nal amarar – AzhwAr is praising them as “nal amarar” (good dhEvas) since they know that he is the means when they are faced with dangerous situations. This is the distinguishing factor from the asuras [asuras won’t depend on bhagavAn ever].
  • thImai seyyum … – When they fear for asuras who are always engaged in harming others, and surrender unto emperumAn.
  • kAmam … – thirumOgUr, which is the abode of emperumAn who assumes a form which is apt for the protection.
  • nAmamE navinRu – Oh those who are related to me! Recite the name of the town, think about it and praise it, out of overwhelming love.
