As stated in Upadesa Ratnamala verse 55, “aar vachana bhooshanaththin aazh porul ellaam arivaar? aar athu sol neril anuttippaar?”…in .howsoever simpler language the tenets may be explained by Mamuni to his disciples, , the concepts in Srivachanabhooshanam would be too tough to follow and more difficult to enjoin in practice; yet because of the complications in the meanings, the teachings to the disciples also would appear to be difficult.  The discourses by the swami after performing the saayam sandhyavandanam and the evening Tiruvaaraadhanam would be spontaneous couched in simple utterances.  This is svairaalaapai:  The discourse that contains all the saastraartha and yet in simple style is svairaalaapai.  Mamuni pleases his disciples by his very lucid and simple discourses.  Here, Hari refers to AranganagarAppan referred to as  ‘Ranganidhi’ in sloka 17 of Poorva Dinacharya   ‘Hari’ means one who removes the obstacles of the devotees, and also One who appoints, controls all the othergods.  It should be noted that in Poorva Dinacharya sloka 17 the morning aaraadhanam to  ‘atha Ranganidhi’, in sloka 29  “aaraadhya Srinidhim’  thebhagavad aaraadhanam, and in this sloka the evening aaraadhanam have been mentioned, indicatin that the swami was offering all the three tiru aaraadhanam to the Lord.
