emperumAn is reclining on top of AdhiSEshan in SrI rangam, which is surrounded by gardens where flowers are overflowing with honey. Such emperumAn has the form of an ocean, lotus-like eyes and a divine face which resembles moon with cool rays. He is worshipped by barhmA, Sivan, various celestial entities including indhran, celestial women such as rambA, wise sages such as sanaka et al, who come from all the sides, strewing flower all along the way, as they approach SrI rangam. When will I worship such emperumAn such that my mind will melt fully?
aLi malarmEl ayan aran indhiranOdu – brahmA who is sitting on top of a lotus flower which is swamped by beetles, together with his son Siva and indhra who is mentioned along with these two in thaiththirIya upanishath nArAyaNavalli 11 “sa brahmA sa Siva sEndhra:” (brahmA, Siva and indhra are possessions of SrIman rArAyaNan)

arambaiyarum – celestial women such as rambA et al
maRRum theLi madhi sEr munivargaL tham kuzhuvum – jIvAthmAs are classified as brahmabhAvanA nishtar (those who are deeply engaged with the supreme being), karmabhAvanA nishtar (those who are deeply engaged with carrying out their karma (activities appropriate to their past virtues and sins) and ubhayabhAvanA nishtar (those who are engaged with both supreme being and their karma). Until now, AzhwAr had spoken about karmabhAvanA nishtar and ubhaya bhAvanA nishtar. Now he is speaking about those who are deeply engrossed with the supreme being alone – sages such as sanaka, sanandhana, sanAthana, sanathkumAra et al, who have clear knowledge (about supreme being).

en uLLam miga enRu kolO urugu nALE – when will my mind melt (after seeing such emperumAn)?
