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

  • perumaiyanE vAnaththu imaiyOrkkum – AzhwAr is reiterating what was explained in thiruvAimozhi 1.3.3amaivudai mudhalkedal odividai aRanilam adhuvAm amaivudai amarar” (dhEvas such as brahmA et al have dharmam (virtuous path) that leads to proper result, have attained high position to be engaged in creation, annihilation etc and are very capable/intelligent). While others are present in lower worlds, they are residing in distinguished worlds; they think highly of themselves as being responsible for creation etc; emperumAn is so great that even such brahmA et al need to surrender unto him and retain their true nature.
  • vAnaththu – This [being in higher world] is the only distinction they have; when compared with him, there is no difference between us and them. They are more heavily immersed in samsAram than we are. For us, we need to give up only what we hold on to, but for them, they need to give up the whole worlds which are under their control.
  • kANdaRku … – When he himself pursues us, for those who reject him, it will not be possible to see him. No need to search for the sambandham (relationship [between us and him]) today; the difference lies in whether one desires to attain him or not. AzhwAr is reiterating what is said in thiruvAimozhi 1.3.1piRargaLukku ariya viththagan” (difficult to attain for those others who are not interested in him).
  • enRum thirumey uRaiginRa – AzhwAr is explaining the nithya yOgam (eternal togetherness indicated in “math“) in rahasyam (dhvaya mahA manthram). thiruvAimozhi 6.10.10agalagillEn” (I will not leave his chest even for a moment). AzhwAr is reiterating what is said in thiruvAimozhi 1.3.1malar magaL virumbum” (one who is dear to SrI mahAlakshmi). One who is always having periya pirAttiyAr residing in his divine form.
  • sem kaN – Due to eternal togetherness with her, his divine eyes are always fresh like watered green field.
  • mAl – The greatness acquired by having her as said in SrI rAmAyaNam AraNya kANdam 37.18 “yasyasA janakAthmajA – apramEyam hi thaththEja:” (One cannot measure the greatness of the one who is married to the daughter of SrI janaka); AzhwAr is reiterating what is said in thiruvAimozhi 1.3.1arum peRal adigaL” (our great lord, who is difficult to attain).
  • nALum … – Eliminating my karmas which are in the form of puNya and pApa, he accepted the kainkaryam which will be done after leaving this samsAra and reaching paramapadham, in this samsAra, everyday. There he will conduct the sustenance of the AthmAs by letting them experience his qualities; here we will sustain with the knowledge about his qualities.
