Twenty first pAsuram  – (mudiyAr thirumalaiyil…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of fully enjoying the beautiful form of azhagar emperumAn who is residing in thirumalai (thirumAlirunjOlai) and is mercifully explaining it.

mudiyAr thirumalaiyil mUNdu ninRa mARan
adivAram thannil azhagar vadivazhagaip
paRRi mudiyum adiyum padigalanum
muRRum anubaviththAn mun

Previously, AzhwAr firmly remained and enjoyed the thirumalai which is having peaks and fully enjoyed the beauty of azhagar emperumAn‘s divine form, along with his crown, anklet and other ornaments on his divine form.

Twenty second pAsuram – (munnam azhagar ezhil…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of becoming bewildered thinking “I am unable to fully enjoy emperumAn‘s qualities due to limitations in my senses” and emperumAn eliminating such bewilderment, and is mercifully explaining it.

munnam azhagar ezhil mUzhgum kurugaiyar kOn
innavaLavenna enakkaridhAyththenna
karaNak kuRaiyin kalakkaththaik kaNNan
orumaip paduththAn ozhiththu

Previously AzhwAr became immersed in azhagar emperumAn‘s beauty; the ignorance caused due to the limitation in senses of AzhwAr who mercifully said “even for me, it is difficult to measure his beauty to be as a particular level”, was eliminated by emperumAn as he pacified AzhwAr’s heart.

Twenty third pAsuram – (ozhivilAk kAlam….) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of revealing his great desire for kainkaryam and is mercifully explaining it.

ozhivilAk kAlam udanAgi manni
vazhuvilA Atcheyya mAlukku – ezhusigara
vEngadaththup pAriththa mikka nalam sEr mARan
pUngazhalai nenjE pugazh

Oh heart! Praise the beautiful divine feet of AzhwAr who attained great bliss by enthusiastically setting out to perform faultless kainkaryam at all times to emperumAn remaining together with him, who is in thirumalA which is having tall peaks.

Twenty fourth pAsuram – (pugazhonRu mAl…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of kainkaryam through speech, after emperumAn manifested his being the antharyAmi (indwelling supersoul) of everything to fulfil AzhwAr’s desire for kainkaryam which was prayed by AzhwAr previously and is mercifully explaining it.

pugazhonRu mAl epporuLgaLum thAnAy
nigazhginRa nEr kAtti niRka – magizhmARan
engum adimai seya ichchiththu vAsigamAy
angadimai seydhAn moymbAl

As sarvESvaran who has fitting glories, manifested his honesty in shining as all entities, AzhwAr who is vakuLAbharaNa, desired to serve emperumAn everywhere and as desired, performed vAchika kainkaryam due to the greatness of being blessed with faultless knowledge and devotion.

Twenty fifth pAsuram – (moymbARum mAlukku…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of  praising those who serve emperumAn and despising those who do not serve emperumAn, and is mercifully explaining it.

moymbArum mAlukku mun adimai seydhuvappAl
anbAl Atcheybavarai Adhariththum – anbilA
mUdarai nindhiththu mozhindharuLumARan pAl
thEdariya paththi nenjE sey

Oh heart! You should perform the most supreme devotion to AzhwAr who mercifully spoke praising those who serve with devotion and scolding those fools who lack devotion, due to the joy of serving the greatly capable sarvESvara through his speech previously

Twenty sixth pAsuram – (seyya paraththuvamAy….) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of giving instructions to samsAris (worldly people) on emperumAn’s saulabhyam which extends up to his archAvathAram and is mercifully explaining it.

seyya paraththuvamAych chIrAr viyUgamAyth
thuyya vibavamAyth thOnRivaRRuL – eydhumavarkku
innilaththil archAvathAram eLidhenRAn
pannu thamizh mARan payinRu

AzhwAr who is having the thamizh vEdham, which is well analysed along with chEthanas, as his identity, mercifully explained that for those who surrender, in this material realm, among the distinguished parathvam, great vyUha, pure vibhava etc forms, deity forms are easy to approach.

Twenty seventh pAsuram – (payilum thirumAl…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of fully explaining bhagavAn’s devotees as the desirable goal and is mercifully explaining it.

payilum thirumAl padham thannil nenjam
thayaluNdu niRkum thadhiyaRku – iyalvudanE
ALAnArkkALAgum mARan adi adhanil
ALAgAr sanmam mudiyA

For those who do not serve the divine feet of AzhwAr who desired to serve those devotees who remain with their heart fixed on the divine feet of Sriya:pathi and who are properly serving such Sriya:pathi, birth [in this material realm] will not end.

Twenty eighth pAsuram – (mudiyAdha Asai…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of saying how his senses and himself were in great anxiety and is mercifully explaining it.

mudiyAdha Asai miga muRRu karaNangaL
adiyAr thammai vittu avan pAl padiyA – onRonRin
seyal virumba uLLadhellAm thAm virumbath
thunniyadhE mARan than sol

As AzhwAr‘s unending love increased, all his senses reached sarvESvara leaving the bhAgavathas; each sense desired the act of other senses and AzhwAr desired to have all the desires of his senses; in this manner, AzhwAr’s divine words became dense.

Twenty ninth pAsuram – (sonnAvil vAzh pulavIr…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of highlighting service to others being disastrous and service to bhagavAn being apt, and is mercifully explaining it.

sonnAvil vAzh pulavIr sORu kURaikkAga
mannAdha mAnidarai vAzhththudhalAl ennAgum
ennudanE mAdhavanai Eththumenum kurugUr
mannaruLAl mARum sanmam

Oh poets who have the ability in your tongue to make poems! What is the benefit of praising the men who have short life span, through your poems, for food and clothes? By the grace of AzhwAr, the leader of thirukkurugUr, who instructed them [everyone] to be with him and praise Sriya:pathi, their birth will stop.

Thirtieth pAsuram – (sanmam pala seydhu…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of saying “for me who has my senses fully for the sake of bhagavAn, there is no shortcoming” and is mercifully explaining it.

sanmam pala seydhu thAn ivvulagaLikkum
nanmaiyudai mAl guNaththai nAdORum – immaiyilE
Eththum inbam peRREn enum mARanai ulagIr
nAththazhumba Eththum oru nAL

AzhwAr mercifully explained “Oh residents of this world! In this birth, I acquired the joy of always praising the auspicious qualities of sarvESvara who is having the goodness of incarnating many times and protecting these worlds; at least one day praise such AzhwAr, to have your tongue scarred [due to that praising].
