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

  • thalai mEla thAL iNaigaL – As I prayed in thiruvAimozhi 2.9.1nin semmA pAdha paRputh thalai sErththu” (placing your reddish divine lotus feet on my head) and thiruvAimozhi 9.2.2pAdha pangayamE thalaikkaNiyAy” (your lotus feet are the decoration for my head), he decorated my head with his beautiful divine feet.
  • thAmaraik kaN ennammAn – He stood in front of me, gave a cool glance and won over me as said in “jitham” (victory).
  • nilai pErAn en nenjaththu – He is doing all of these without leaving my heart. As saubari assumed 50 forms, as AthmA would assume many forms to enjoy him, emperumAn assumed many divine forms to enjoy AzhwAr.
  • eppozhudhum – He pursued all the options which I pursued to enjoy him as I did in thiruvAimozhi 2.5.4eppozhudhum nAL thingaL ANdu Uzhi Uzhi” (every moment, day, month, year and yuga cycle). He manifested all of his omnipotence. He did everything such as remaining in my heart, standing in front of me, placing his divine feet on my head etc simultaneously.
  • emperumAn – The owner sustaining himself by acquiring his possession is [higher and] not the same as the property sustaining itself by acquiring the owner.
  • malai … – emperumAn who is mercifully resting on thiruvananthAzhwAn (AdhiSEshan) in thiruvAttARu  which is having mansions which appear as if they are carved out of mountains. With this, the attainable goal is explained as highlighted in paryanka vidhyA [scripture which narrates how SrIman nArAyaNan is present on AdhiSEsha throne].
  • madham … – All the hurdles for our enjoyment will see the same fate that was faced by kuvalayApIdam. As emperumAn eliminates the AthmA’s hurdles, the AthmA will get to enjoy him.
  • kurai kazhalgaL kuRuginam – The sound of the ornaments is heard. We attained what we prayed in thiruvAimozhi 6.9.9thadandhAmaraigatkE kUvik koLLum kAlam innam kuRugAdhO?” (Will the time to invite me to engage in those divine feet, not happen soon, even at this stage?)
