Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

neelam … – Just as a blue mountain reclined with a priceless gem on it, emperumAn is reclining on thiruvandhAzhwAn in thiruppARkadal, with the SrI kausthuba jewel on his beautiful divine form.

adiyEn manaththirundhAy – He reclined on thiruppARkadal only to enter AzhwAr’s heart as he was waiting for AzhwAr to not reject him; as AzhwAr stopped rejecting emperumAn, he entered AzhwAr’s heart and felt accomplished.

sOlai … – Huge prides of peacocks dance in the fragrant garden because of the rising smoke from burning the sugarcane juice which appears as clouds during monsoon. Seeing the cloud like smoke from the burning of sugarcane, the prides of peacocks in the garden would dance. Having such abode which caused bewilderment, you entered my heart and remained there!
