Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
thI manaththAn … – Cruel-hearted kamsan – one who cannot tolerate the presence of bhagavAn in a place (AyarpAdi/gOkulam); his servants such as dhEnukAsuran and pUthanA, who are roaming in disguise – one who killed them. In beauty, he is the father of manmatha, and has even greater divine form which is rejuvenating. The desirable abode of such sarvESvaran.
karudhum idam … – Water which is having waves which are hitting against each other, are pushing pearls in every ghat. The abode which has the beauty due to having vaidhikas who have pure heart since they are engaging their tongue and mind in bhagavAn’s manthrams, four types of vEdhams, five great yagyams, six ancillary subjects etc, and are living densely.
