Those who follow kshapaNa (jaina) matham, wearing saffronised cloth, having tonsured head, remaining close to each other, eat along with their relatives, and subsequently become fat due to eating as desired. While they remain in this world, you, who are my mind, are engaged in serving the lord of nithyasUris residing in spacious paramapadham, who is having thirumalA where animals with fur are gathering, as his abode.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
thuvari … – Having saffron cloth which was given that colour, there are those who pluck their hair from their heads and throw it down – they are followers of jaina philosophy; they eat a lot and further they and others who have interest in their philosophy, become fat.
en nenjam enbAy – While they do what they do, what can I call you, who are having a distinguished nature from them?
kavari … – One who is having thirumalA where herds of animals with fur gather, as his abode.
kaN Ar … – There is a spacious sky – thripAdh vibhUthi (SrIvaikuNtam which is three times larger in size than the world we live in). The controller of anantha (AdhiSEsha), vainathEya (garudAzhwAr) et al who are present there.
adimai … – You have disregarded the acts of jainas and engaged in the routine of nithyasUris! [How great!]
