Having a small form with soft hair which resembles cotton, being the lord of all, krishNa mercifully consumed the poison in the bosom of pUthanA who was not aligning with him and was mischievous. Previously, he crossed the thoughts of kamsa who did not approach and surrender unto him. Oh very pure heart who is obedient towards me! Try to worship those who worship such krishNa’s merciful reclining in sthalasayanam in thirukkadalmallai, with their heart.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
panjich chiRu kUzhai uruvAgi – krishNa is having a toddler’s form where he is having soft hair which is as soft as cotton and cannot be gathered and placed in a knot. Alternatively – since kUzhai is a term which indicates a woman’s hair, this could be explaining pUthanA’s hair which is small and cannot be gathered and placed in a knot. [A question arises] Since she is in the beautiful disguise of mother yaSOdhA, would she not have dressed up like her? [Why small hair?] Though she can dress up as much as possible, the [demoniac] hair will naturally show up.
maruvAdha vanjap peN – Having unfavourable attitude in her heart, but covering it with favourable mood, she will come carefully. pUthnA who came in a disguise.
nanjuNda aNNal – The lord who consumed her poison. It is said in harivamSam “sthanyam thath vishasammiSram rasyamAsIth jagathgurO:” (her breast-milk which was poisoned, was very sweet for krishNa who is the lord of the universe). He protected himself who is the lord of the universe [emphasis on aNNal].
mun naNNAdha … – Previously, AzhwAr explained about the killing of the enemies sent by kamsa. Now he is talking about the killing of this evil kamsa who is the root of all the enemies. Killing kamsa who remained thinking “I will not let him live in any way”, emperumAn arrived at thirukkadalmallai to help the favourable ones. Those who worship such thirukkadalmallai.
nenjil thozhuvArai – Those who are unable to even open their mouth due to overwhelming experience in their heart.
thozhuvAy – Instead of searching for thirukkadalmallai and the nAyanAr (lord) who is present there, just consider these devotees as your goal and worship them.
en thUy nenjE – You are very pure to remain in thadhIya SEshathvam (being subservient to bhAgavathas).
