pAsuram 57

Fifty seventh pAsuram. He feels sad about the sorrowful state of those who know the greatness of this grantham but are not involved in it.

dhEsigarpAl kEtta sezhum poruLaich chindhai thannil
mAsaRavE UnRa mananam seydhu – Asarikka
vallArgaL thAm vachana bUdaNaththin vAn poruLaik
kallAdhadhu ennO kavarndhu

What is the reason for those who can get rid of their faults of lust and anger, who can meditate well on the excellent meanings learnt from their AchAryas and are capable of following those meanings [in their lives], in not learning the esteemed meanings of SrIvachana bhUshaNam? How strange is it that these people, who are born in the species of humans who are capable of learning SAsthras and following them, are losing out on this grantham by not having the desire for it!

pAsuram 58

Fifty eighth pAsuram. He responds to those who query as to how they should learn the esteemed meanings of SrIvachana bhUshaNam.

sachchambiradhAyam thAm udaiyOr kettakkAl
mechchum viyAkkiyaigaL uNdAgil – nachchi
adhigariyum nIr vachana bUdaNaththukkaRRa
madhiyudaiyIr madhdhiyaththarAy

Oh those who have the minds dedicated to SrIvachana bhUshaNam! If anyone had written a commentary for this grantham which is praised by all, and if those who are anchored in sathsampradhAdyam (the traditional beliefs in truthfulness) feel joyous after listening to it, you too learn it, remaining in the neutral path.

Before mAmunigaL wrote an eminent commentary for it, AchAryas such as Ayi jananyAchAriyar from thirunArAyaNapuram, have written commentaries for it.

pAsuram 59

Fifty ninth pAsuram. He feels joyous by sharing his affection for SrIvachana bhUshaNam with other AchAryas who have fame matching his.

sIr vachana bUdaNaththin sem poruLaich chindhai thannAl
thErilumAm vAykkoNdu seppilumAm – AriyargAL
endhanakku nALum inidihAga ninRadhaiyO
undhamakku evvinbam uLadhAm

Oh AchAryas! It gives me unlimited happiness whether I enjoy the eminent meanings of SrIvachana bhUshaNam with my heart or if I recite it through my mouth. What sort of happiness do you people get? AzhwArs enjoyed emperumAn as insatiable nectar. AchAryas enjoyed AzhwArs and their aruLichcheyals  (dhivya prabandhams) as insatiable nectar. However, mAmunigaL enjoys SrIvachana bhUshaNam itself as insatiable nectar.
