Ninety first pAsuram – (thALadaindhOr…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of setting out to ascend to paramapadham along with emperumAn’s company, having been given the final date and is mercifully explaining it.
thAL adaindhOr thangatkuth thAnE vazhith thuNaiyAm
kALamEgaththaik kadhiyAkki mILudhalAm
EdhamilA viNNulagil Ega eNNum mARan enak
kEdham uLLadhellAm kedum
emperumAn is the companion in the final journey for those who surrendered unto his divine feet. Everything known as sorrow will be destroyed as we think about AzhwAr as the one who mercifully thought to ascend to paramapadham which is free from the fault of anyone returning [to samsAram from there] having such emperumAn who is like a dark cloud as the protector for the path.
Ninety second pAsuram – (kedumidar…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of desiring to perform kainkaryam that is done in paramapadham, in thiruvananthapuram and is mercifully explaining it.
kedumidar vaigundhaththaik kittinAppOlE
thadamudai anandhapuram thannil padavaravil
kaNduyil mARkAtcheyyak kAdhaliththAn mARan uyar
viNdanil uLLOr viyappavE
To the wonder of nithyasUris who are in the great parampadham, AzhwAr desired to serve emperumAn who is mercifully resting on the matress of AdhiSEsha, who has hoods, in the vast thiruvananthapuram, as if he had reached and engaged in service in SrIvaikuNtam, which is free of any sorrow.
Ninety third pAsuram – (vEymaruthOL…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of having his doubt clarified by sarvESvaran on why he placed AzhwAr in samsAram against his desire and is mercifully explaining it.
vEy maru thOL indhirai kOn mEvuginRa dhEsaththai
thAn maruvAth thanmaiyinAl thannai innam bUmiyilE
vaikkum enach changiththu mAl theLivikkath theLindha
thakka pugazh mARan engaL sArvu
Having not reached the abode where Sriman nArAyaNa, the lord of SrI mahAlakshmi, who is having bamboo like strong shoulders, is mercifully residing, AzhwAr unnecessarily doubted “emperumAn will place me in this samsAra still” and acquired clarity by the clarification given by emperumAn. Such AzhwAr who has matching fame, is our refuge.
sArvAgavE adiyil thAnuraiththa paththidhAn
sIrAr palaththudanE sErndhadhanaich chOrAmal
kaNduraiththa mARan kazhaliNaiyE nAdORum
kaNdugakkum ennudaiya kaN
Knowing about the manner in which bhakthi which was mercifully explained by him previously in thiruvAimozhi 1.2 “vIdumin“, which is to be pursued by all and which culminated in prapaththi, the best result, AzhwAr mercifully explained without skipping anything. Everyday, my eyes will joyfully see such AzhwAr’s divine feet only.
kaNNan adi iNaiyil kAdhal uRuvAr seyalaith
thiNNam uRavE surungach cheppiyE maNNavarkkuth
thAn upadhEsikkai thalaikkattinAn mARan
Ana pugazh sEr than aruL
The glorious AzhwAr, with his grace, briefly and mercifully explained the act of the devotees towards emperumAn’s divine feet, to make it remain firmly in the hearts of all the AthmAs in this world and concluded his task of instructing others.
Ninety sixth pAsuram – (aruLAl…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of emperumAn who is urging to carry AzhwAr to paramapadham, doing it as per the orders of AzhwAr and is mercifully explaining it.
aruLAl adiyil eduththa mAl anbAl
iruLArndha tham udambai ichchiththu iruvisumbil
iththudan koNdu Ega ivar isaivu pArththE irundha
suththi sollum mARan senjol
sarvESvaran lifted AzhwAr from samsAram to start with, with his causeless mercy; AzhwAr’s divine words will reveal such sarvESvaran’s purity of awaiting AzhwAr’s permission to carry AzhwAr with this body to paramapadham, desiring for AzhwAr’s body which is filled with ignorance.
Ninety seventh pAsuram – (senjol…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of emperumAn being desirous of AzhwAr’s body and making him give up on that by requesting “Please relieve me from this body which is an obstacle” and is mercifully explaining it.
senjoRparan thanadhu sIrArum mEni thanil
vanjiththuch cheyginRa vAnjaidhanin vinjudhalaik
kaNdavanaik kARkattik kai viduviththuk koNda
thiNdiRal mARan nam thiru
paramapurusha who is the object of vEdham which has honest words had abundant, mischievous desire towards AzhwAr’s divine form which is filled with qualities such as gyAna etc. Seeing that, AzhwAr who has firm strength, relieved himself holding on to emperumAn’s divine feet. Such AzhwAr is our wealth.
Ninety eighth pAsuram – (thirumAl…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of forcefully asking emperumAn “Why did you, who are accepting me now, not do so since time immemorial?” and emperumAn having no answer for that and is mercifully explaining it.
thirumAl thampAl viruppam seyginRa nEr kaNdu
arumAyaththanRagalvippAn en perumAl nI
inRenpAl seyvAnen enna idaruRRu ninRAn
thunnu pugazh mARanaith thAn sUzhndhu
Seeing the great attachment of SrIman nArAyaNa towards him, the greatly glorious AzhwAr asked emperumAn “Oh emperumAn! Why did you keep me in samsAram since time immemorial and push me away? Why are you showing great attachment towards me now?” empeumAn humbly remained in grief due to not having an answer for that question.
Ninety ninth pAsuram – (sUzhndhu…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of enjoying the welcome given in archirAdhi mArgam (the luminous path towards paramapadham) as shown by emperumAn and is mercifully explaining it.
sUzhndhu ninRa mAl visumbil thollai vazhi kAtta
Azhndhu adhanai muRRum anubaviththu vAzhndhangu
adiyarudanE irundh ARRai urai seydhAn
mudi magizh sEr gyAna muni
As emperumAn surrounded AzhwAr and stood, and showed the ancient path of archirAdhi mArgam leading to paramapadham, AzhwAr, the gyAna muni (wise sage), who has vakuLa garland on his divine head, mercifully spoke about being immersed in the ocean of joy there, enjoying it fully, living there and the way he remained blissfully, without any burden, along with devotees such as garuda, vishvaksEna et al.
Hundredth pAsuram – (munimARan…) In this pAsuram, mAmunigaL is following AzhwAr’s pAsurams of reaching the ultimate goal with the help of paramabhakthi (the last stage before attaining bhagavAn) and is mercifully explaining it.
muni mARan munburai sey muRRinbam nIngi
thaniyAgi ninRu thaLarndhu naniyAm
parama paththiyAl naindhu pangayaththAL kOnai
orumai uRRuch chErndhAn uyarndhu
AzhwAr, who is a meditator, being relieved of all the joys he mercifully said to have attained previously, stood alone with sorrow. Being well matured, due to the well developed parama bhakthi, having Sriya:pathi in harmony in his divine heart, having attained the greatness of nithyasUris due to that, had prathyaksha sAkshAthkAram (real vision for the external eyes) and got to serve in the togetherness of the divine couple.
