Simple translation (based on vAdhi kEsari azhagiya maNavALa jIyar‘s 12000 padi)

emperumAn is having thiruvananthAzhwAn who is an eternal servitor, as his mattress; he is the ultimately enjoyable lord who is doing favours for the mumukshus who place him in their hearts and always pursue him through gyAna in the form of bhakthi, and who enjoy him; he is ultimately simple due to placing rudhra who is having the young crescent moon, which usually dwells in the sky, in his matted hair, on one side of his divine form; I got to surrender unto the divine feet of such emperumAn. The “ai” in the end of “aNaiyAnai, ammAnai” is just for sound and has no specific meaning. Alternative recital – “pAgaththu vaiththAnaip pAdham paNindhEnE“.

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

  • nAgaththu aNaiyAnai – He would accept those who are favourable towards him, as his mattress.
  • nALdhORum … – For those who embrace him in their hearts, with their gyAna, he will always shower his mercy. The mumukshu cannot always think about emperumAn! To eliminate such shortcoming, emperumAn who is in a singular form/state will always shower his mercy upon such mumukshu.
  • mAgam … – emperumAn gave place to rudhra, who is wearing the moon on his hair to pretend as an enjoyer and is having matted hair which reveals that he is a pursuer of some means, on one side of his divine form; I have surrendered unto the divine feet of such emperumAn; is there anything to worry for me now?
