Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
vanjanai … – Consuming the life of pUthanA who came with a deceitful form; mercifully ate the curd which was present near by; mercifully ate the butter; consumed kamsan’s life. For him, there is no difference between the objects which are touched by favourable persons and the life of the unfavourable persons.
ivvulagu uNda – Just as he mercifully ate butter, he has taken the earth and placed in his stomach.
kAviri … – kAviri brings sandalwood. agil, gold and pushes into the garden which has grown tall to reach the clouds, and in the fertile field and creates unlimited wealth; as the brAhmaNas see the arrival of the river, they offer flowers and perform anjali saying “sarvESvaran has sent this for our livelihood” and reside there surrendering unto him.
