periya thirumozhi >> Second Centum

AzhwAr surrendered unto emperumAn’s divine feet to attain kainkaryam as said in periya thirumozhi 1.9.2 “adaindhEn adiyEnai AtkoNdaruLE” (I have surrendered unto you, please accept my service) and periya thirumozhi 1.10.9 “ini yAn unnai enRum vidEn” (I will never leave you) and had acquired desire to have such kainkaryam to remain forever; AzhwAr analysed the reason for attaining such state, to show gratitude; while analysing that, AzhwAr realised that it is because of his heart that he attained the following aspects as said in SrI vishNu purANam 6.7.28 “mana Eva manushyANAm” (mind is the main reason for a man’s bondage and liberation):

  • While the worldly people who remain bhAhya (those who reject vEdham) and kudhrushti (those who misinterpret vEdham) are facing disaster, I got to surrender unto your divine feet to acquire such goal of performing kainkaryam.
  • Acquiring the taste to continuously perform such kainkaryam

Thinking about that, he joins his divine heart to celebrate such wealth of kainkaryam.
