sarvESvaran, the king, performed cruel acts during rAmAvathAram to destroy lankA, ocean, invincibly strong rAvaNa who is the lord of Sanka nidhi and padhma nidhi, and the demoniac clan; gangA hits the mEru mountain which is circumambulated by the shining sun, and flowing on the sky which is atop, like a vastly spread whitish cloth hoisted on a flag-post, is filled with strong and clear water; such sarvESvaran is eternally residing in SrI badharIkASramam which is on the banks of such gangA.
Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
- ilangaiyum … – sarvESvaran, the king, who previously performed cruel acts to destroy lankA which cannot be destroyed by anyone, the ocean which is like a protective layer for such lankA, rAvaNa who has the ability to resist anyone’s efforts to win over him and who is the owner of Sanka nidhi and padhma nidhi which were taken away from vaiSravaNa (kubEra) after defeating him and the demoniac clan which is rAvaNa’s strength, and make them all bite the dust. It is said in SrI rAmAyaNam kishkindhA kANdam 18.6 “ikshvAkUNAm iyam bhUmi: saSaila vanakAnanA” (The kings of ikshvAku dynasty are the rulers of this earth which has mountains, small and big forests).
- kozhum sudar … – Hitting mEru mountain which is circumambulated by sun, on the sky which is atop, the gangA falls with clear water just as a white cloth was spread on a flag-post.
- valam tharu maNi nIr – Water being very clear due to the strength derived from its force.
