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

  • mAnAngAra manam keda – To destroy those which are known as mahAn, ahankAram and manas; this also implies [mUla] prakruthi (primordial matter).
  • aivar vankaiyar manga – This [five gyAnEndhriyams – senses of knowledge] also implies karmEndhriyams (senses of action) and pleasures such as Sabdham etc. Did he ask them to fade away? If he agrees to give up his forceful attachment, they will leave him. If he nods his head saying “I agree”, there is nothing wrong in saying that AzhwAr’s desire is fulfilled.
  • thAn … – emperumAn entered me as the controller for me; emperumAn pridefully entered me.
  • thAnE thAnE AnAnai – emperumAn eliminated my claim over my self and belongings and entered as the controller; alternatively – without expecting my request, he himself became the one who requested and became the exclusive controller.
  • thEn AngAram … – AzhwAr, who is the controller of AzhwArthirunagari, which is having garden,liked by beetles, mercifully spoke this decad among the thousand pAsurams, to destroy mUla prakruthi which is the form of mahath, ahankAram etc; this decad which is spoken pridefully.
  • thirumAlirunjOlai malaikkE – This decad is spoken of, on thirumalai; if there is a section which is spoken about azhagar emperumAn, that should be considered as speaking about kalpakatharu (heavenly wish-fulfilling tree). Anything which is on thirumalai, is desirable; kulaSEkarAzhwAr also mercifully mentioned in perumAL thirumozhi 4.10 “emperumAn pon malai mEl EdhEnum AvAnE” (Let me become anything on the golden thiruvEngadamalai).
