Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
piNangaL … – With rudhra who is not humane in his heart [due to residing in cremation ground where ghosts are only seen]; with rudhra who is dancing in the cremation ground. Here AzhwAr is talking about emperumAn’s simplicity of giving a place in his divine form for those who are prideful (like dhEvathAs) and nithyasUris. sudharSana chakram is representative for nithyasUris.
visumbil gaNangaL iyangum mallai … – AzhwAr is speaking about nithyasUris roaming around on the sky looking at emperumAn’s simplicity of mercifully reclining in thirukkadalmallai. Alternatively, he is speaking about thirukkadalmallai having the greatness of celestial beings, who enjoy pleasures, such as yakshas, gandharvas who are roaming around on the sky.
vaNangum manaththAravarai – Those who have the heart to worship such emperumAn.
vaNangu – mada nenjE – Those who are worshipping such emperumAn are the object of worship for you instead of having to search for the emperumAn whom they are worshipping.
