Highlights from nampiLLai‘s vyAkyAnam as documented by vadakkuth thiruvIdhip piLLai

  • pErE uRaiginRa pirAn – sarvESvaran who has arrived in thiruppEr and eternally residing there.
  • inRu vandhu – AzhwAr would have known previously that this will happen, had he performed any sAdhanAnushtAnam (pursuit of means).
  • pErEn enRu – He kept repeating “I won’t leave”, though there was no one to ask him “Will you leave or stay?” He is saying the words which are said by pirAtti about him, towards me [pirAtti’s words as in thiruvAimozhi 6.10.10 “agalagillEn iRaiyum” (I won’t leave even for a moment from his chest)] Though there is no one to raise unnecessary doubts about his leaving, he keeps vowing saying “I won’t leave”; SrI rAmAyaNam yudhdha kANdam 19.21 “thribhisthai: bhrAthrubhi: SapE” (I take oath on my three brothers).
  • en nenju – My heart which remains “It does not matter whether he leaves or stays”.
  • niRaiyap pugundhAn – Entered to become complete.
  • kAr … – Placing all the worlds containing seven types of clouds such as pushkalAvarthakam etc, seven oceans, seven mountains, in his divine stomach and still remained “What [good] have I done?” just as one who stole from a person who faithfully resided with him. One who remains “I have not done anything [good for you]” even after performing all types of protection starting from srushti (creation) to mOksham (liberation) for the protected ones.
  • adangap pidiththEnE – I held him well to make him feel satisfied that “We have done everything good for him”. Rescuing the worlds from the deluge implies again engaging in samsAram deeply; he was feeling incomplete since he did not carry the AthmAs to paramapadham; as I have become ready to be carried by him all the way to paramapadham, his desire has become fulfilled. I have become the target of his very complete acceptance.

In the next article we will enjoy the next pAsuram.
