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

  • aruLai I enbargaL – They will pray to emperumAn requesting to shower his mercy.
  • en ammAnE – Is there any other refuge for us if you don’t shower your mercy? They will say “You, who are apt for us, should shower your mercy”.

When asked “Who are those who pray for such mercy?” AzhwAr says,

  • mukkaN … – rudhra, who is having an eye in the forehead and who considers himself to be the lord. chathurmukha (brahmA) who is having the greatness of being the knowledge-giver and creator of such rudhra, indhra who checks the presence of dhEvas every Saturday and Wednesday, dhEvas who bring glory to indhra by being his subjects. the meditating sages who eliminate the ignorance in the form of darkness along with the trace. This thirumAlirunjOlai is the divine abode of such sarvESvaran, who is praised in one tone by all of these entities, who comes and resides eagerly.
  • maruLgaL kadiyum maNi malai – The abode which will completely eliminate the hurdles for the goal. That is – it will eliminate the thought of considering something other than thirumalai as the goal. When asked “Which entity does that?” AzhwAr says, “Is there anything else? It is thirumAlirunjOlai malai only”.
