Oh you who are desirous to own SrI paraSurAmAzhwAn, the great sage who wanted to destroy the kings and to liberate the residents of the earth which is surrounded by ocean filled with boats, who took up arms and entered the battle which was occurring at that time to sever the body of the kings with his axe, and became victorious and subsequently went to perform penance! Go and reach thillaith thiruchchiththirakUdam where periya pirAttiyAr is residing on his chest and SrI bhUmip pirAtti is firmly remaining on his left side and the woman, who is an embodiment of his fame, is shining radiantly, and which is surrounded by famous, protected, vast, blossomed garden.

Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

kO manga … – To have everyone claiming to be kings destroyed and to have the residents of the earth, which is surrounded by ocean, liberated, SrI paraSurAmAzhwAn without minimising his anger, while severing the bodies of the kings with his axe, took up arms and was having great valour; oh you who are desiring to own him!

pU mangai … – periya pirAttiyAr and SrI bhUmip pirAttiyAr are eternally residing with him, and his fame which is visualised as a woman, is shining everywhere; thillaith thiruchchiththirakUdam which has fame and protection.
