As the Sriya:pathi who approaches his devotees, was hiding, AzhwAr‘s sorrow increased and he reached a state of uncontrolled weeping; he embraced those which cannot analyse his sorrow and cried; such AzhwAr firmly blesses the devotees with his merciful eyes.
Twelfth pAsuram – (thiNNidhA mARan…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of meditating upon emperumAn‘s parathvam which was thought about incidentally, in his incarnations and instructing the same to others, and is mercifully explaining it.
thiNNidhA mARan thirumAl paraththuvaththai
naNNi avadhAraththE nanguraiththa – vaNNamaRindhu
aRRArgaL yAvar avaradikkE AngavarpAl
Those who approach the divine feet of totally surrendered devotees of AzhwAr, who know how well the firm minded AzhwAr mercifully spoke about sarvESvaran‘s supremacy through his incarnations, will not be overpowered by the relationship with body..
Thirteenth pAsuram – (UnamaRavE vandhu…). In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of seeking companions to enjoy along when emperumAn united with AzhwAr to make them be seen as “Ekathathvam” (single entity) and is mercifully explaining it.
UnamaRavE vandhu uL kalandha mAl inimai
Anadhu anubaviththaRkAm thuNaiyA – vAnil
adiyAr kuzhAm kUda Asai uRRa mARan
adiyArudan nenjE Adu
Oh heart! You live along with the devotees of AzhwAr who desired to join the assembly of devotees in paramapadham with the desire of having favourable companions to enjoy the sweetness of the union with sarvESavaran who came without any shortcoming and united with AzhwAr intimately.
Fourteenth pAsuram – (Adi magizh vAnil…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of speaking in the mood of a mother of a girl who was suffering in separation from emperumAn and his devotees, and is mercifully explaining it.

kUdi inbam eydhAk kuRai adhanAl – vAdi miga
anbuRRAr than nilaimai Ayndhuraikka mOgiththuth
thunbuRRAn mARan andhO
AzhwAr, being upset in not enjoying the union with the group of devotees residing in paramapadham and dancing in joy with them, became very grieved; he became perplexed and suffered to be analysed and explained by madhurakavi AzhwAr et al who were greatly affectionate towards him; alas!
Fifteenth pAsuram – (andhAmaththanbAl….) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of how emperumAn arrived along with his devotees [nithyasUris in the form of weapons and ornaments] and eliminated his grief which was highlighted in thiruvAimozhi 2.4 “Adi Adi“, and is mercifully explaining it.
vandhArath thAn kalandha vaNmaiyinAl – sandhAbam
thIrndha satakOpan thiruvadikkE nenjamE
vAyndha anbai nAdORum vai
AzhwAr had his sorrow eliminated due to sarvESvaran arriving with the desire he has for SrIvaikuNtam, along with the nithyasUris in the form of weapons and ornaments, and magnanimously uniting well with AzhwAr. Oh heart! Always have befitting bhakthi on such AzhwAr’s divine feet.
Sixteenth pAsuram – (vaigundhan vandhu…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of pacifying ISvaran as ISvaran unnecessarily doubted “What if AzhwAr who enjoys me saying in thiruvAimozhi 2.5.4 ‘appozhudhaikkappozhudhu en ArAvamudham‘ (my unquenchable nectar, every moment), leaves me claiming himself to be unqualified?” and is mercifully explaining it.
vaigundhan vandhu kalandhadhiRpin vAzh mARan
seyginRa naichchiyaththaich chindhiththu – naiginRa
thanmai thanaik kaNdu unnaiththAn vidEn enRuraikka
vanmai adaindhAn kEsavan
AzhwAr sustained himself after sarvESvaran who owns nithya vibhUthi, arrived and united, but started performing naichyAnushandhAnam; looking at that emperumAn became worried and started breaking down; seeing that, as AzhwAr mercifully said to him “I will not leave you”, emperumAn became calm.
Seventeenth pAsuram – (kEsavanAl…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of blissfully speaking of those who are his ancestors and descendants and who acquired servitude towards bhagavAn, due to relationship with AzhwAr himself and is mercifully explaining it.

thEsadaindhAr enRu siRandhuraiththa – vIsu pugazh
mARan malaradiyE mannuyirkkellAm uygaikku
ARenRu nenjE aNai
Oh heart! AzhwAr mercifully explained clearly saying “Those who belong to me acquired radiance, along with those who are related to them, both in previous generations and subsequent generations”; he is having glories which are spreading everywhere; surrender unto the divine lotus feet of such AzhwAr, considering them as the means for liberation for all eternal AthmAs.
Eighteenth pAsuram – (aNaindhavargaL…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of instructing emperumAn‘s mOksha pradhathvam (granting of liberation) and is mercifully explaining it.

guNandhanaiyE koNdulagaik kUtta – iNangi miga
mAsil upadhEsam sey mARan malar adiyE
vIsu pugazh emmA vIdu
AzhwAr mercifully gave faultless instruction highlighting emperumAn‘s quality of mOksha pradhathvam only to unite the nithya samsAris with nithyasUris who approach and serve sarvESvaran, to make them become a recipient of krishNa’s mercy; such AzhwAr’s divine, lotus feet which are having well spread out glories, are the abode of ultimate liberation.
emmA vIdum vENdA enRankkun thALiNaiyE

Oh heart! Placing the divine lotus feet of AzhwAr who is the cause for our sustenance, who mercifully spoke saying “Oh lord! It is sufficient to have the divine feet of your highness”, on our head, without any desire for lowly results, you shall rise more and more.
Twentieth pAsuram – (kiLaroLi sEr…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of instructing others saying “Taking refuge of thirumalai (the sacred thirumAlirunjOlai hill) is the means for the goal” and is mercifully explaining it. Alternatively it can be said that mAmunigaL is explaining how AzhwAr is enjoying thirumAlirunjOlai as the ultimate goal.
kiLaroLi sEr kIzhuraiththa pERu kidaikka
vaLaroLi mAl sOlai malaikkE – thaLarvaRavE
nenjai vaiththuch chErumenum nIdu pugazh mARan thAL
mun seluththuvOm em mudi
To attain the previously explained purushArtham which is having radiance, AzhwAr mercifully said to reach thirumAlirunjOlai which is the residence of emperumAn who has growing radiance, with our heart, without getting tired; we will place our head in front of the divine feet of the greatly glorious AzhwAr.
