Previous Centum


Focus of this centum – sathyakAmathvam – bhagavAn, the one with all his desires fulfilled

Highlights from vAdhi kEsari azhagiya maNavALa jIyar‘s introduction

AzhwAr mercifully highlighted the strong hurdle which is eliminated by bhagavAn in the previous decad;in this centum, AzhwAr sets out to meditate upon how the hurdles are removed and the following aspects are highlighted by him:

  1. the presence of emperumAn who eliminates the hurdles, for the sake of his devotees
  2. though one may have attachment towards him, he would not be easily approachable for those who have not given up attachment towards other matters
  3. his being the independent cause for love in his devotees, being unable to bear their separation
  4. eliminating the most difficult hurdles for his devotees, and considering their wealth as his own
  5. as one develops love towards him who is the apt lord, the hurdles will be eliminated naturally
  6. his presence in close proximity, to eliminate the hurdles of the devotees
  7. his presence as antharyAmi through which he eliminated all the hurdles
  8. how bhagavAn reveals the inseparable purity of AthmA (self) and the distant faults which are incidental
  9. how emperumAn would transform the most faulty person to be engaged in purest service to him
  10. highlighting the elimination of hurdles after revealing the greatness of service to devotees even over service to himself (bhagavAn)

With these aspects, AzhwAr mercifully establishes the manner in which the hurdles which are shown previously, are eliminated.

We will see each thiruvAimozhi (decad) in detail.
