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

  • thoNdIr vammin – Oh those who are desirous in bhagavath vishayam! Come!
  • nam sudar oLi oru thani mudhalvan –  One who is endlessly radiant and who is himself the three types of causes. “nam” indicates the well-known nature of the pramANam (source of knowledge). Alternatively it indicates that he is the one who revealed his physical beauty and his aptness due to being the cause.
  • aNdam mU ulagaLandhavan – One who is beyond the oval-shaped universe. One who measured and accepted the three kinds of worlds inside the universe which were stolen by mahAbali. Not only does he create the universe, but he also protects it by walking all the way when the created universe is claimed by strong persons.
  • aNi thirumOgUr – The abode which is a decoration for him; or, the abode which is a decoration for the material realm.
  • eN dhisaiyum … – To have sweet sugarcane and paddy crops growing in all directions.
  • koNda kOyil – The abode which was accepted by him in his divine heart. The paddy crop appears to be giving shade for the sugarcane [it is that tall]. Due to his presence, the town remained as said in SrI rAmAyaNam yudhdha kANdam 127.19 “akAla palinO vrukshA:” (the trees blossomed in non-season).
  • valam seydhu – circumambulating etc.
  • ingu Adudhum kUththE – We will enjoy at thirumOgUr, the same enjoyment which will be enjoyed there in paramapadham as said in thaiththirIya upanishath “ahamannam ahamannam ahamannam:” (I am the food and I am the consumer of food[repeated thrice] – residents of parampadham are enjoyed by emperumAn and they in turn enjoy emperumAn).
