pAsuram 73

Seventy third pAsuram. He brings the prabandham to an end by mercifully stating the benefit to those who learn it.

indha upadhEsa raththina mAlai thannai
sindhai thannil nALum sindhippAr – endhai
edhirAsar innaruLukku enRum ilakkAgich
chadhiRAga vAzhndhiduvar thAm

Those who retain always, in their thoughts, this prabandham called as upadhEsa raththina mAlai which reveals the essence of the instructions of our pUrvAchAryas, will live in a distinguished way, being the recipient of my swAmy yathirAja’s sweet compassion.

This prabandham revealed the incarnation of AzhwArs in a sequence, the places where they incarnated, the commentaries written by AchAryas for their aruLichcheyals (divine compositions), the glories of SrIvachana bhUshaNam which is the essence of the aruLichcheyals as well as their commentaries and the esteemed principle of “AchArya’s affection is the greatest”. Those who meditate constantly on these features of this prabandham will, with the mercy of the most compassionate SrI rAmAnuja, live with the wealth of servitude in this world and prosper further with service in the permanent abode of SrI vaikuNtam.

pAsuram 74

Seventy fourth pAsuram. It is customary to recite the thaniyan (single verse) of maNavALa mAmunigal’s disciple, eRumbiyappA, at the end.

mannuyirgAL ingE maNavALa mAmunivan
ponnadiyAm sengamalap pOdhugaLai – unnich
chiraththAlE thINdil amAnavanum nammaik
karaththAlE thINdal kadan

Oh those who live in this firmly established world! If you keep on your head, maNavALa mAmuni’s divine feet which are like golden, reddish flowers, after meditating on them desirously, at the end of this life, you will go in the path of archis (effulgent path) and go past the vrajA river (the boundary between materialistic and spiritual realms). Once amAnavan (a celestial entity who guides) does his principal act of touching you, you will get a divine form, enter thirumAmaNi maNdapam (divine huge courtyard made of gemstones) which is located in SrI vaikuNtam, the unbounded place of happiness, get accepted by emperumAn and be constantly in servitude to emperumAn along with the gathering of devotees.
