Simple translation

emperumAn, remaining firm under the hoods of AdhiSEshan, mercifully rested in thiruppARkadal; he went behind the fawn which was cheerfully having dots in many colours and was roaming around here and there; he plucked and threw the tusk of kuvalayApIdam which is having flowing water of exultation; being varAha having curved horn, he released the vast earth with his divine tooth to tear it; he grew to make the vast earth and vast sky become insufficient and measured the worlds with his divine feet and accepted them; I got to see such sarvESvaran, who enslaved me, in sthala sayanam in thirukkadalmallai, which is surrounded by fragrant garden.

Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

kidandhAnai … – One who mercifully rested in the vast ocean which is vast enough for his resting, on AdhiSEshan to not rise even if woken up by his divine consorts.

kiLar … – As sIthAp pirAtti requested SrI rAma to catch the fawn which was having multi-coloured dots and was roaming around cheerfully since it was evil, he chased it to lose his path. He went so far as to become separated from pirAtti. One who plucked the tusk of the huge, exultant elephant, effortlessly like plucking green leaves.

pAr idaththai … – Being mahAvarAha (great wild-boar) with a curved horn, he lifted up the earth with his divine tooth to cause a tear in it.

iru nilan … – He grew and measured the worlds to make the earth and sky become insufficient for him.

emmAnai – One who enslaved me by placing his divine feet on everyone’s head.

kaNdu koNdEn – AzhwAr is saying “I who escaped his divine feet when he himself placed it on everyone’s head, got to see him here”.
