Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
kaRavai … – One who protected the cows and killed kamsan who could not tolerate such protection for cows.
kALamEgath thiru uruvan – This is how his beautiful form is, which was meant to destroy others. Matching his ability to protect, he hoisted periya thiruvadi (garudAzhwAr) as flag and mercifully rested close-by in thiruppARkadal, to hear the cries of brahmA et al; the abode of such emperumAn who is greater than all.
thuRai thuRai … – In each ghat, gold and precious gems are abundantly being pushed by the gathered tides of maNNi river; on the southern bank of such river, the flags hoisted on the mansions which are having densely embossed precious gems, went up to the abode of sun and stopped his movement.
