Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
uNdAy … – AzhwAr is speaking about emperumAn being unable to sustain himself without the food (ghee) which is in contact with his devotees, the act of helping them without caring for himself. You ate the pure ghee which was safely placed in the rope hanging down from the ceiling, considering it to be nectar.
koNdAy … – You who are the supreme lord, assuming the form of vAmana, accepted the vast earth with your two steps.
viN thOy … – Oh one who is firmly residing on thirumalA where the peak reaches up to paramapadham!
aNdA – Oh cowherd boy! Alternatively – oh one who is the controller of those who live inside the oval shaped world!
adiyEnukku … – You should give me the opportunity to do my kainkaryam to you, which does not match the kainkaryam of yaSOdhAp pirAtti and indhra.
