Word by Word Meanings

pArOr pugazhum vadhari vadamadhurai – SrI badharikASramam, which is praised by all the people of the world, mathurA which is in the northern direction
Ur Aya ellAm ozhiyAmE – without missing any of the divine abodes (entering all those places)


pArOr pugazhum vadhari – isn’t this the abode which is praised by the people of this world as being the place where emperumAn carried out penance for their well being? I will go there, show my form and ask the people “Oh those who can see! Look at me and then decide as to who carried out penance – is it emperumAn or I?”

vada madhurai – initially when it was the hermitage of the great sages, it was the place where vAmana (one of emperumAn’s incarnations) had carried out penance; in rAmAvathAram, it was the place where SrI Sathrugna had defeated lavaNAsura and ruled over the place; in krishNAvathAram, it was the place where emperumAn incarnated himself as kaNNa. Thus, mathurA is the abode which did not lose its connection with bhagavath vishayam (matters relating to the supreme being) as brought out by the famous saying “mathurA nAma nagarI puNyA pApaharI SubhA” (the town mathurA is pious, removes sins and auspicious). I will go there and show them as to how he ran out of that place because I have reached there.

UrAyavellAm ozhiyAmE – will I say a few words in only a few places [as mentioned in the few verses stated above] and leave? I will enter all those places which I have not spoken of. It is not possible for me to say everything [here]. If you wish, you could follow me to all those places and make a note.

nAn – I, who am capable of destroying all his qualities which he is boasting of, in all the places where he is entering to hide himself, being fearful of me

avanai – he, who is torturing me and who is trumpeting that he is under the control of archakas (who are involved in carrying out timely ArAdhana (worship) of emperumAn at various divine abodes)

In the next article, we will discuss the next part of this prabandham.
