Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

annaiyum … – Even if she desired to go, should she leave blaming us? She did not show mercy towards us, the servitors, considering us to be mother and father. Should she leave us who are the servitors, blaming us to be the controllers?

pinnai … – If she leaves two persons here, she should hold on to two persons there [nappinnaip pirAtti and emperumAn]. The reason for abandoning us is the greatness of emperumAn to be enjoyed there.

minnai … – The one who would defeat lightning and vanji creeper with her thin waist, walked.

punnai … – Would they enter the abode which has enjoyable places [gardens] and their species [swans]?
