Those who can firmly hold this decad in the heart and recite it will be the protector for earth which is surrounded by vast ocean which is filled with ships and will get to rule paramapadham as well. Remain without a doubt on this principle.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
sem kayal … – Just as mukthAthmAs (liberated souls) will always remain twenty five years old and remain joyful enjoying bhagavAn, fish which are reddish due to their radiant youth will remain joyful with each other in the ponds of thirumalA where Sriya:pathi is eternally residing. On such Sriya:pathi.
mangaiyar thalaivan … – AzhwAr who is the leader of thirumangai region, mercifully sang this decad in the form of a garland in beautiful thamizh with honest words. Those who can firmly hold and recite this decad, will certainly be the protector of the earth which is surrounded by ocean, and will subsequently have nithyavibhUthi (paramapadham) also at their disposal.
Will this occur?
sangai inRi – No need to doubt this principle.
