pAsuram 7

Seventh pAsuram. He explains how their divine names were established firmly in the world because of the great benefit that they bestowed on the world.

maRRuLLa AzhwArgaLukku munnE vandhudhiththu
naRRamizhAl nUl seydhu nAttai uyththa – peRRimaiyOr
enRu mudhal AzhwArgaL ennum peyar ivarkku
ninRadhu ulagaththE nigazhndhu

Since these three AzhwArs incarnated ahead of the other AzhwArs and corrected the world by composing prabandhams in thamizh, the term mudhal AzhwArs became firmly established for them.

pAsuram 8

Eighth pAsuram. Since he had said that he would follow the order in which they incarnated, after the month of aippasi, he is mercifully speaking about the incarnation of thirumangai AzhwAr in the month of kArththigai. He explains the greatness of thirumangai AzhwAr in two pAsurams. First he explains to his heart, the greatness of the day on which thirumangai AzhwAr incarnated.

pEdhai nenjE inRaip perumai aRindhilaiyO
Edhu perumai inRaikku enRu ennil – OdhuginREn
vAyththa pugazh mangaiyar kOn mAnilaththil vandhudhiththa
kArththigaiyil kArththigai nAL kAN

Oh ignorant heart! Do you know the greatness of this day? I will tell you, listen to me. Today is the day of kArththigai star in the month of kArththigai. It was on this day that thirumangai AzhwAr, who has apt greatness, incarnated on this expansive world.

pAsuram 9

Ninth pAsuram. He explains the wonderful connection between nammAzhwAr and thirumangai AzhwAr. He instructs his heart to praise the divine feet of those who celebrate this day.

mARan paNiththa thamizh maRaikku mangaiyar kOn
ARangam kURa avadhariththa – vIRudaiya
kArththigaiyil kArththigai nAL inRu enRu kAdhalippAr
vAyththa malarth thALgaL nenjE vAzhththu

Oh heart! nammAzhwAr mercifully composed four prabandhams which are equivalent to the four vEdhas. Just as there are six parts to those four vEdhas, thirumangai AzhwAr incarnated on this great day of kArththigai star in the month of kArththigai, only to compose six prabandhams which are like the six parts to nammAzhwAr’s prabandhams. Praise the divine lotus-like feet of those who like this day very much.
