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

  • amararkku ariyAnai – Even for most intelligent persons such as brahmA et al, he cannot be attained by their own efforts; SrI vishNu purANam 1.9.55 “yannAyam bhagavAn brahmA jAnAthi paramam padhamI thannathA: sma jagadhdhAma thava sarvagadhAchyutha II” (Oh all pervading achyutha! We bow down to that supreme dwelling place of yours which even bhagavAn brahmA does not know and which is the sustaining entity for the universe).
  • thamargatku eLiyAnai – One who is easy to attain for ananyaprayOjana. Even for a monkey [sugrIva], a woman of the hunter clan [Sabari], or rishis (sages), emperumAn is easily approachable; as said in SrI rAmAyaNam kishkindhA kANdam 4.19 “sugrIvam SaraNamgatha:” (SrI rAma surrendered to sugrIva), SankshEpa rAmAyaNam “sa: abhyagachchath mahAthEjA:” (the very radiant, valorous SrI rAma reached Sabari); SrI rAmAyaNam bAla kANdam 31.4 “imausma munisArdhUla” (SrI rAma to viSvAmithra – Oh best among sages! We are available to execute your orders).
  • amarath thozhuvArgatku – For those who worship him without any expectation as ananyaprayOjana.
  • amarA vinaigaLE – The hurdles which are the cause for such seeking of other benefits will not come close.
