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

  • idar keda … – The words of those who consider themselves as lords (dhEvas) and sages who can both inflict their curse and bestow blessing are as in “emmai idar keda pOndhu aLiyAy” (bless us to have our sorrows eliminated). To have the sorrows mentioned in sthOthra rathnam 13vEdhApahAra …” (stealing of vEdhas), to be eliminated.
  • emmai – Those who previously considered themselves to be, as said in SrI bhagavath gIthA 16-14ISvarOham’ (I am the controller), when afflicted with dangers, will present their emptiness as said in SrI rAmAyaNam AraNya kANdam 6.16 “Ehi paSya SarIrANi” (Look at our bodies).
  • pOndhu aLiyAy – They (AzhwArs) will tell him that he should descend and protect them. Those [dhEvas] who were previously ignoring, when met with danger, will ask him “why are you resting, while we are suffering here?” just as one would question the village chief.
  • enRu enRu Eththi thodara –  To continuously praise him and forcefully surrender unto him due to their dangerous situation.
  • sudar koL sOdhiyai – emperumAn is appearing radiant thinking “at least, they come to me when they are in danger”. Another explanation – due to his distinguished beauty, he should be pursued for his beauty alone, but he is only considered as the eliminator of hurdles.
  • dhEvarum munivarum thodara – dhEvas and rishis. Those who remain “ISvarOham” and those who pursue wealth.
  • padar koL pAmbaNaip paLLi koLvAn – One who accepts the service of ananyaprayOjanars (those who expect nothing but kainkaryam) is mercifully resting in kshIrAbdhi (milky ocean) for the sake of prayOjanAntharaparars (those who seek other benefits)!
  • padar koL pAmbu – thiruvananthAzhwAn (AdhiSEsha) who expands by the touch of emperumAn.
  • paLLi koLvAn – thiruvananthAzhwAn is capable of making the sarvagya (omniscient lord) becoming captivated by sleep due to coming in contact with him.
  • thirumOgUr – He mercifully stood in thirumOgUr to be easily approachable for us as well just as he remained easily approachable for dhEvas (in kshIrAbdhi).
  • idar keda adi paravudhum – Let us surrender unto his divine feet to have all our sorrows eliminated.
  • thoNdIr vamminE – All those who are sagOthris (sharing the same gOthram of prapanna kulam (the clan of servitors)) should gather around.
