krishNan who has beautiful leelAs caused shivering for kuvalayApIdam, the elephant with huge head and fleshy body, plucked its tusk and made it to fall down along with its mahout. His firm abode is thiruththEvanAr thogai which is vast enough to have fortified streets which are made with reddish gold and gardens, in thirunAngUr where sheNbaga flowers’ freshness is spreading and its fragrance is smelling nicely.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
kumba … – krishNan effortlessly plucked the tusk of the elephant which has a huge head, just as one will pluck green leaves; he made the elephant to shiver and fall down along with its mahout. This was similar to wild grass falling down in a flood; the abode where such emperumAn is residing with heart-stealing leelAs.
vambavizhum … – Freshly blossoming sheNbaga flower is smelling fragrantly in thirunAngUr; thiruththEvanAr thogai has fortified streets, and gardens which surround those streets.
