emperumAn, who is in thirumOgUr which has tall gardens and distinguished ponds as decoration and is shining due to that, who was sired by dhaSaratha, is like a pond having complexion of emerald gem, to drown the very strong rAkshasas who are having countless honorary titles/names; all of you who are as said in SrI rAmAyaNam kishkindhA kANdam 4.12 “guNairdhAsyam upAgatha:”, reach here and worship him. Your sorrows, will be immediately destroyed, without your effort. The example of maradhaga gem which eliminates poison and is also an ornament, implies emperumAn being the eliminator of enemies and being the refuge for devotees.

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

  • thuyar kedum kadidhu – Our sorrows will immediately go away, even we don’t desire for that.
  • adaindhu vandhu – vandhu adaindhu – coming here and reaching.
  • adiyavar thozhumin – You who are suffering thinking that there is no companion for the [final] journey, please take shelter and worship him.
  • uyar … – thirumOgUr which has the shine based on the decoration of tall gardens and beautiful ponds. When we see the garden, it will remind us of his beautiful form. When we see the ponds, it will remind us of how he eliminates our fatigue. He is said to be coming [walking] like a fragrant pond as said in thiruvAimozhi 8.5.1vAsath thadam pOl varuvAn“.
  • peyargaL Ayiram udaiya – Just as ISvara acquired many names by protecting others, these rAkshasas acquired many names by harming others; “yagyaSathru” (enemy of fire sacrifice), “brahmaSathru” (enemy of brAhmaNa) etc are some of their names.
  • val arakkar pukku azhundha – To drown the greatly prideful rAkshasas.
  • dhayaradhan … – Reach and surrender unto the son of dhaSaratha chakravarthy, who is like a pond which resembles blue gem. emperumAn protects the favourable ones as said in “badhi tharu maru vApI vArivath sarva bhOgyam” (one who is pleasing to the trees enroute, water in dry lands and all) and destroys the unfavourable ones as said in SrI rAmAyaNam yudhdha kANdam 14.20 “kAkuthstha pAthAlamukE pathansa:” (rAvaNa who enters into the fire of SrI rAma). Isn’t he the one who guides even a bird [to mOksham] as said in SrI rAmAyaNam AraNya kANdam 68.30 “mayAthvam samanugyAthO gachcha lOkAn anuththamAn” (With my permission, you shall reach the highest abode).
