Those who can learn these pAsurams which are firmly filled with bhagavAn’s qualities, with their meanings, will remain as kings who are great charioteers, and shiningly rule over earth which is surrounded by resounding ocean filled with beautiful water.

Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

pAr … – On paramESvara viNNagara, where pallava king who had ancient, well established fame on earth, surrendered.

kAr … – The town has pregnant fields [dark – well grown]. Just as mukthAthmAs will always remain 25 years old. It is said in periya thirumozhi 10.1.1 “karunel sUzh kaNNamangai” (thirukkaNNamangai which is surrounded by dark paddy crops).

kunRAdhu … – Whatever qualities mentioned for poetry, there is no shortcoming in any of that; those who are well versed in the thamizh garland which was mercifully composed in such manner; by the grace of periya pirAttiyAr, they will be great charioteer kings in this world and rule over the earth which is surrounded by ocean.

thigazhvargaLE – Will become radiant. To not waste such wealth/control, they will get to use them for the sake of bhAgavathas just as AzhwAr did.

Thus, with this decad, it is explained that since this dhivyadhESam is dear to sarvESvaran, it is refuge and it is refuge for all. That is – only those who have noble qualities such as Samam, dhamam etc are qualified to surrender; this abode is such that even those who are without such qualities, will humbly surrender here.
