Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
indhiran … – indhran, dhEvathAs, sages such as sanaka et al, four-headed brahmA who is beautiful, having vEdham and is having lotus flower as his birth place; he always recites vEdham and teaches vEdham. Sun, moon and those who have strong heads in samsAram, which is his wealth would say “You, who are our lord, should mercifully give your grace to us”; he arrived here and mercifully stood in this dhivyadhESam to conduct their positions.
ezhil … – Instead of having to deal with such tasks (of dhEvathAs et al), this abode is where he remains continuously seeing the beautiful gardens.
