Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

nedumAl … – thirumangai AzhwAr who is having eternal fame and is the leader of the residents of thirumangai and can conduct intoxicated elephant in the battle, composed this garland of thamizh pAsurams with tune, on thirunIrmalai where sarvESvaran, who is greater than all, is eternally residing. For those who are able to practice this decad,

udanE – While surrendering, the sins will run away. Further if they desire for the attainment of the goal, that will be easy to attain. Or, if they desire for worldly pleasures/wealth, they will become the singular rulers of the earth which is surrounded by shining, resounding, curved ocean, enjoying the wealth by remaining under a moon like whitish umbrella (which highlights supremacy in this world) and will eventually reach the divine feet of emperumAn.
