Oh lord of beautiful thiruvAli where the sweet sound of singing bhagavAn’s stories and sound of conch are pervading everywhere, the abundant sounds of many different musical instruments and the sound of the dance which is seen everywhere, are continuously occurring! Oh one who meditates, who shot seven ebony trees to fall at once! You who have motherly forbearance towards your devotees, should not think that my mind, which offered many different flowers and mixed flower garland at your divine feet which match each other, for a long time, worshipped and praised, should suffer like a leaf.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
nIdu … – As said in thiruvAimozhi 3.3.1 “ozhivil kAlam ellAm” (At all times) and thiruvAimozhi 4.7.8 “eNdhisaiyum uLLa pUk koNdu” (With flowers from eight directions), my mind offered garlands with many different types of flowers, at your divine feet which match each other, and praised; you should not think about such mind to suffer like a leaf.
maram eydha mAmunivA – Is he not the one who instills faith in his devotees?
mAmunivA – Your thought is unlike our thought which may fail or succeed.
pAdalin … – Sound of the songs, the other sounds such as the sound of conch etc pervade everywhere, and further abundance of many different musical instruments, and the sound of the dancers who are seen everywhere are occurring continuously; paNai – percussion instruments like murasu, palliyam.
