In the previous decad, AzhwAr told that there is no shortcoming in his desire to attain emperumAn. There is nothing more needed to show one’s desire than incoherently repeating the names of the abodes which are dear to him as he said in “pArththan paLLi pAduvAL” (My daughter parakAla nAyaki sings about the dhivyadhESam named pArththan paLLi). For thirumangai AzhwAr, everything which is said in thiruvAimozhi 9.3.7mAga vaigundham kANbadhaRku en manam Egam eNNum” (My heart without any difference between night and day desired in a singular manner to see SrIvaikuNtam) and in thirviruththam 47kaNNan viNNUr thozhavE sariginRadhu sangam” (Since my daughter is thinking of continuously enjoying SrIvaikuNtam, the dwelling place of krishNa, her bangle is slipping out of her hands), is in the divine abodes of emperumAn (in this world); hence he went with great desire to thiruvindhaLUr thinking “While he has paramapadham as the abode of his divine assembly, abandoning such abode, he descended to thiruvindhaLUr to fulfil the desires of his devotees; if go there, we can enjoy him in many ways”; but unlike with his devotees such as SrI puNdarIkan, akrUran et al with whom emperumAn gave his special katAksham (divine glance), he did not give his cool look with his divine eyes, did not embrace, did not enquire AzhwAr; AzhwAr also did not see emperumAn ordering him to do kainkaryams while AzhwAr went with great eagerness as said in thiruvAimozhi 3.3.1vazhuvilA adimai seyya vENdu nAm” (We should perform all types of services without leaving anything); AzhwAr became very anguished due to that and got the mood of having romantic anger which is seen in feminine moods thiruvAimozhi 6.2minnidai madavAr” and periya thirumozhi 10.8 “kAdhil kadippittu“, in his natural state of being an AzhwAr; AzhwAr angrily speaks to emperumAn saying “You are present here; I have no shortcoming in my desire to attain you; you are the apt lord; why are you not engaging me in your service?”
