emperumAn, who is known as gOvindha, himself created the worlds, the creatures, dhEvathAs and other entities such as mahath and annihilated them too; being the creator, lord who is greater than all, who revealed this kAraNathvam, is mercifully resting on the serpent mattress. If we engage in sweeping the floor etc at the divine entrance of his thiruvananthapuram which is having farm-field as decoration with (the schools of) fish jumping around joyfully in the entrance of the canals, our great sorrow, of not doing kainkaryam until now, can be eliminated. gOvindha could also indicate krishNa as said in “krishNa Evahi lOkAnAm uthpaththirapi chAbyaya:” .

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

  • thudaiththa gOvindhanArE … – thudaikkai – annihilating. Annihilation precedes creation. mahAbhAratham sabhA parvam 38.23 “krishNa Eva hi lOkAnAm uthpaththirapichAbyaya:” (krishNa is the cause for all worlds), periyAzhwAr thirumozhi 1.1.6 “vaiyam Ezhum kaNdAL piLLai vAyuLE” (mother yaSOdhA saw the whole creation in krishNa’s mouth).
  • ulagu uyir … – One who created the world, celestial beings and other sentient beings. When they started violating their limits, he annihilated them, and subsequently he gave them the senses/bodies which are necessary to attain the purushArtham (goal), and protected them.
  • em parama mUrththi – sarvESvaran who is humble towards his devotees.
  • pAmbaNaip paLLi koNdAn – One who mercifully reclined on thiruvananthAzhwAn (AdhiSEsha) in the created world, for the protection of the residents of the world. His,
  • madaiththalai … – In the abode which is decorated with fields where the (schools of) fish joyfully jump around and reside in the entrance of the canals, due to the abundant availability of water; just as mukthAthmAs reside in paramapadham singing sAma gAnam, even the animals reside joyfully in this abode.
  • kadaiththalai sIykkap peRRAl – If we get to perform divine sweeping kainkaryam at the sannidhi entrance.
  • kadu vinai kaLaiyalAmE – All the sorrows due to not performing service will be eliminated. After acquiring SEshathva gyAnam (knowledge of being a servitor), the sorrow of not having done service cannot be eliminated by prAyaSchiththam (atonement) [it will only go by engaging in kainkaryam fully].
