AzhwAr highlighted his emptiness and surrendered to thiruvEngadamudaiyAn praying for kainkaryam; after surrendering bhAshyakArar [bhagavath rAmAnujar] prayed “You should eliminate prakruthi (body) which is in both gross and subtle form; you should eliminate ahankAram and mamakAram; you should eliminate the hurdles; you should cause parabhakthi etc [paragyAnam and paramabhakthi] in me”; similarly, AzhwAr is praying to sarvESvaran who eliminates the hurdles, who is the protector of all, who cannot sustain without materials which are touched by his devotees, who is naturally united with his devotees and who is easily approachable for all [these are all identified based on each of the pAsurams in this decad] saying “you should eliminate my hurdles; you should make me unable to sustain without you”; in this decad, it is said that emperumAn said “Have I not arrived and stood here to fulfil all your desires? ” and showed his presence in thirumalA and subsequently entered AzhwAr’s divine heart and caused parabhakthi etc. bhakthi is present both in prapanna (one who surrenders) and bhakthimAn (bhakthi yOga practitioner). It is said in SrI bhagavath gIthA 9.14namasyanthaS cha mAm bhakthyA” (bowing down to me, with devotion), with respect to both bhakthi and prapaththi.
