Thirupaavai Bhavam-part-2..

December 31, 2008

..16th..PramANam, PramEyam and PramAthA are of three kinds. Vedam, Smruthi, PurANam, IthihAsam, dhivya prabhnadhams, Brahma soothram are PramANams. Lord Sriman NaarAyaNan in Parama padham, vyUham, Vibhavam, Archai and antharyAmi arePramEyams. AchAryAs like Naathamuni are PramAthAs. Similarly, Rahasya-Thrayams (Thethree manthrams) are PramANams; PerumAL is PramEyam; the AchAryan initiating us into
these manthrams is PramAthA. In the context of this Paasuram, “Koil KaappAnE” denotes Moola manthram; “kodit thOnRum –vaasal KaappAnE” refers to Dhvayam; nennalE vaai nErnthAn” stands in for Charama slOkam of the Lord. The Gopis describe themselves as the ones that have arrived with MukkaraNa suddhi (Vaak, Manas, Kaayam) at the Lord’s door. MukkaraNa Suddhi here also refers to that they have come with paripoorNa visvAsam in the holy triad–Manthram, Devathai and AchAryan– for liberation from the deep sleep of SamsAram and to gain MokshAnandham.
There are two sections to the door defended by the guards: One door of Moola Manthram (1) “praNavam and Nama:” and (2) NaarAyaNAya. Again Dhvayam (1) Sriman NaarAyana –prapadhyE and (2) srimathE–Nama: Also charama slOkam is also constituted by its two doors of PoorvArtham (Sarva DharmAn–SaraNam vraja and aham thvA — maa sucha:). Thus manthram, EmperumAn and AchAryan are covered in this paasuram as PramANam, PramEyam and PramAthA..

..17th..The gopis say: “Oh NandagOpA! You give away generously food, clothing and water to all those, who seek them. These are anithya (perishable items) vasthus. Please grant us as DhAnam, the food known as Kuttik KaNNan. He is “uNNUm sORu, Paruhu neer, Thinnum VeRRilai” for us. He is our Taaraka,
Posahaka BhOgya Nithya vasthu. The AaypAdi girls had great attachment to ThrivikramAvathAram. That is why they referred thrice in ThiruppAvai the mysterious deeds of Thrivikraman In the previous Paasuram, the three Sri VaishNava Rahasyams were referred to. In this Paasuram, the MEANINGS of the three rahasyams are alluded to. Amparam is PraNavam; sORu is “NaarAyaNAya”;TaNNIR is Nama: Sabdham of the Moola manthram. ANDAL uses “Am”, the BhIjAksharam as a woman through choice of the word Amparam. TaNNIr can be split into TaNN + Neer (Cool water fall). Nama: sabdham includes SaraNAgathi. SaraNAgathi is an angam for Bhakthi and therefore the two upAyams of Bhakthi and Prapatthi are included by use of the word, “TaNNIr”. Our Lord is “SORu” in the spirit of Swamy NammAzhwAr’s anubhavam (UNNumSORu, Paruhu neer —). From “AmparamE–NandagOpAlA”, AchAryan, who stands in the form of PithA is invoked. From “KompanArkkellAm– –YasOdhA”, the Manthram that stands in the role of Mother is invoked. YasOdhA is the Yasas giving Mother. The Vedam says in this context: “YasO
Brahma:” In “SempoRRk Kazhaladi–Umpiyum Neeyum uRangEL”, anugraham from the Lord and His Tamar (BhAgavathAs) are beseeched…

..18th..In our AarAdhanam, we awaken (invoke) AchAryan and Ananatha-Garuda-VishvaksEnar (nithyasooris) first and then awaken PirAtti. Here through the awakening of Nappinnai, all the three parties are awakened. In KrishNavathAram, until the time of the Lord’s residence in Gokulam, Nappinai PirAtti was
PradhAnam (chief wife) and enjoyed the andharangam of the Lord. Nappinnai is the incarnation of NeeLA dEvi. Therefore, the Gopis approach Nappinnai seeking her intercession (PurushakAram). Without PurushakAram of PirAtti, Saasthrams say that one should not approach BhagavAn. Even PirAtti would not intervene unless that the chEthanam has sathsahavAsam and SadAchArya sambhandham. Therefore as poorvAngam (preliminaries), the
Gopis related to the gate keepers, and NandhagOpan. Nappinai’s close relative is NandhagOpan. Therefore, Gopis address Napinnai cleverly as “NandhagOpAlan MarumahaLE” here. NandhagOpan’s Isvaryam is indicated with “Unthu mathakaLiRRin OdAtha ThOlvaliyan” in this paasuram. Besides his wealth of cattle, NandagOpAlan is known for the herd of elephants befitting his role as the king of GopAs. His Bhuja bala parakramam is also indicated by the reference to the elephants in rut, which NandhagOpan is able to subjugate.(This is the famous Paasuram associated with AchAryA RaamAnujA’s swoon, when he identified AthtuzhAi, the daughter of his AchAryAn, with Nappinnai, when sheopened the door of her house with jangling bangles to offer Bikshai to RamanujA..

..19th..Kutthu ViLakkeriya = AchArya UpadesamkOttuk Kaal Kattil = Four PurushArthams (Dharma, Artha, Kaama, Moksham) representing the four legs of the Kattil, metthenRa pancha = This prapancham (universe) made of Sayanam Isvara GuNams..Pancha sayantthin mElERi = The five entities can also be dEva-thiryak (animal..ManushyasthAvara..(insentient) and aprANi roopa Jeevans and the Akshara Lord, who is above all Kshara entities, Kotthalar poo = the assemblies of joyous nithya sooris, Malar MaarbhA = the PurushOtthaman, who is the overlord of both nithya sooris and His PirAttis, pirivARRkillAyAl = according to “adiyOmOdum ninROdum pirivinRi” You who are always, with us in the company of Your Lord can not abandon us., TatthuvamanRu = it does not fit with Your Svaroopam as PurushakAra Svaroopai Tahavu = since You are the DayA Moorthi
———Kutthu ViLakku: It has five mukhams. When we add oil in one Mukham, it spreads evenly to the other four mukhams and produces illumination evenly. These five faces also represent the five states of our Lord and artha panchakam. Kutthu ViLakku is thus the Jn~Ana Dheepam, which removes the darkness of SamsAram.
Malar MaarbhA: One with a the most generous heart, who grants the boons all the way upto Moksham. This is perhaps the reference to the “Akhila hEya Prathyaneeka” svaroopam of the Lord celebrated in SaraNAgathi Gadhyam. Vaai ThiRavAI: Sriman NaarAyaNA! I hold on to Your Thiruvadi. Please open Your mouth and say that You have accepted our SaraNAgathi as in AzhwAr’s aruLiccheyal..

..20th..Muppatthu Moovar: The 33 = 8 Vasus, 11 RudhrAs, the 12 AdhithyAs and the 2 Asvini dEvAs .
Munn senRU: Oh KrishNA! You should protect us even before harm comes our way, just as You do for the Muppatthu Moovar. Kappam tavirkkum KaliyE!: Oh Proud and valorous Lord, who stops the tremblings of the dEvAs, who fear their enemies. SeppamudayAi: this salutation recognizes the kalyANa guNam of Aarjavam (nErmai) of the
Lord, the Sathya-parAkramasaali. ThiRaludayAi: the Saamarthyam and competence of the Lord as SarvalOka Rakshakan is being celebrated here…seRRArkku veppam kodukkum VimalA: BhagavAn has equanimity towards alll, but when it comes to the enemies of the BhAgavathAs, He destroys latter. Sepenna Menmulaic chevvAic chiRu marungal Nappinnai nangAi: This Paasuram paasagesalutes the samudhAya anga soundharyam of Nappinnai PirAtti. ThiruvE: Nappinnai is addressed as MahA Lakshmi avathAram here. Actually She hasinvolvement in PurushakAra kruthyam (the act of intercession with her Lord to protect the Jeevan) just as BhUmi and Sri Devi. That is why the AchAryAs say: “Samastha JananIm VandhE”.TattoLi is mirror, as part of the ShOdasOpachAram for the Lord. Even today in Srirangam, the mirror is made of bronze and is shown to Lord daily wishing Him Subha Mangalam.
unn MaNALanai ippOthE yemmai neerAttu: Please help perform our vratham related ceremonial bath through Your dear husband, who is Sarva karma SamArAdhyan.

..21st..“OoRRamudayAi”: The Lord, who is magnanimous in forgiving the dhOshams of the one surrenders to Him, even if he had committed aparAdhams earlier. Our Lord is intense on removing these dhOshams. He is the “PeriyAi” or the Supreme one towering over all since He has the rare combination of DayA and Sakthi. Without the combination of DayA and Sakthi, allefforts at rakshaNam will be unfruitful. Just having DayA or Sakthi alone wont do so much
good for a Rakshakan. “Ulahinil thORRamAi ninRa”: PerumAL’s avathAram as RaamA and KrishNA experienced with human eyes during their VibhavAvatharams is referred to here (sakala manuja Nayana vishayathAm gatha: (PaarthasArathy = naam paartha-Saarathy). Vedam declares, “Sa U srEyAn Bhaavthi JaayamAna:”. “U” here stands for AvathAranam saluted by AazhwArs “nilavarambil PALA PIRAPPAI”, “YenninRa YoniyumAi
PIRANTHAAI”. The five states “avathArams”/ manifestations) of the Lord are also described here: (1) “OoRamudayAi” is linked to Para VasudEvan desirous of creating the beings of the world (Jagath Srushti). (2) “PeriyAi” is connected to VyUha roopa EmperumAn. (3) “Ulahinil” stands for the Vibhava avathArams like RaamA and KrishNA. (4) “NinRa” refers to His standing steadily as ArchAvathAran at dhivya dEsams amidst us. (5) “SudarE” means the JyOthi Svaroopa Roopam inside us as antharyAmi Brahmam

..22nd..UPANISHAD BHASHYAKARAR’S LILTING SANSKRIT EXPLANATION
-mahAmaNdalAdhipathaya: nirasthAbhimAnA:santhO sangIbhUya thvadhIya manja — adhasthAna pradEsE yatho Upavisanthi tathA thvadhguNa vivasA bhUthvA aagathya — aasrithA:sma –(just as the great kings casting aside their ego have arrived at the foot of Your cot, we are also standing overcome by Your guNAdhisayam and have sought Your protection)”.KinkiNi Vaai seytha thAmari– “dhara-vikasitha puNDarIka sadhrusa raktha nayanAbhyAm mandham mandham asmAn aalOkaya” (with Your slowly opening red lotus like eyes, please look at us / bless us).
ThinkaLum –saapam azhinthu: “udhitha Chandra Soorya sadhrusAbhyAm athisundara nayanAbhyAm asmAn pasyasi chEth asmadhIyAni pApAni nasyanthi” (If You look at us with Your Sun and Moon like, most beautiful eyes, all our sins will be destroyed…abhimAna BhangamAi Vanthu = There are 8 kinds of delusions that a human beings have that interferes with their Tatthva Jn~Anam: the Delutions (1) one’s SarIram is AathmA (2) one is a svathanthran (3) we are servants to some one other than the Lord. (4) there are bhandhus other than Sriman NaarAyaNan to help us. (5) one can attain purushArtham (mOksham) by seeking UpAyams other than Bhakthi & Prapatthi. (6) deep desire to wallow in perishable pleasures. (7)we do everything by our own power. (8) the tendency to commit apachAram to BhaagavathAs. The release from these eight delusions means that one is Bhaagavatha Seshan (the servant of the devotees of the Lord).

..23rd..Maari malai muzhanjil Mannik kidanthuRungum seriya Sigham aRivuRRu Thee Vizhitthu = Receiving the blessing of dhivya Jn~Anam from Lakshmi-narasimha, who is the enduring principle of the rahasyams of Vedams (Upanishads), which pour down (knowledge about) PuNyams and Paapams and awakening as a result of His dhivya anugraham…vEri mayir ponga yeppAdum pErnthu udhaRi moori nimirnthu nee muzhanki puRappattu yeppAdum povaip poo VaNNA= May you journey to Sri Vaikuntam to the sound of mangaLa vAdhyams! May You, who never procrastinated about the performance of your nithya karmAs, spread the glories of that Lord of fragrant kEsams and supreme Buddhi VikAsam!..Poovaip Poo VaNNA = Oh Aathma Jn~Ani with blossomed Jn~Anam!..yAmm vantha Kaariyam aarAyntharuL = Please intercede with the Lord for us to be blessed with sarva- vidha Kaimkaryam (nithya Kaimkaryam).The ThiruvadikaL (feet) and the ThirukkaikaL (hands) of the Lord are the key limbs, which are behind His majestic gait and unparalleled generosity to bless us with what we seek according to Abhinava Desikan. Hence, the Gopis praise His gambeera Nadai and boon-granting hands.Indirectly, they praise His souseelyam, Soulabhyam and Paraakramam (valour). Since Thrivikrama, Raama and KrishnAvathArams are dear to them, they
take instances from these avathArams to salute His nadai with Srimath GaambhIryam and His auspicious varadhAna hastham..

..24th..We have arrived today to sing pallANDu for Your valorous deeds in Vibhavam and to seek eternal kaimkaryam to You in Parama Padham (YenRenRum unn sEvakamE yEtthi parai koLLa inRu yaamm vanthOm). Please have dayA for us (irangu).We hail the spear like, sharp-edged sankalpam of Yours, which banishes obstructions to gaining Moksha Siddhi (venRu pahai kedukkum ninn kaiyill vEL pORRi). We hail Your lofty guNams as Sri VaikuntanAthan as the SarvEsvaran seated under the white umbrella (yEka ChakrAdhipathi with svEtha Chathram); {kunRu kudayAi yedutthAi guNam pORRi} in Parama Padham. We hail your heroic deeds that destroy like a powerful daNdam thrown at our PuNya Paapams (KuNilA kanRu yeRinthAi, Kazhal pORRi). “Sakatam ponRa uthaitthAi puhazh pORRi”: we hail Your glories that destroy the manOrathams of Jeevans, which are the causes behind the naraga-Svarga anubhavams! “angu senRu tenn Ilankai seRRAi thiRal poRRi”: Hail to Your sakthi which is manifested through Your presence in the universe as antharyAmi, VibhavAtharan and AchAryan and for conferring the power of vivEkam to ward off the moksha virOdhis! “anRu ivvulaham aLanthAi adip pORRi”: Hail to Thee, who created all these Universes and their beings and for making Your Thiruvadi as UpAyam for our Prapatthi! We are eulogizing Your powers of creation, power to control our sanchala manas, power of Your guNams that save us from enjoying the fruits of Paapa-puNyams, power to banish mOksha VirOdhis. We beseech You through our prayers to give us the VrathOpakaranams and to listen to our request for eternal kaimkaryam at Your feet; have mercy on us.

..25th..As UttamAdhikAris, the Gopis knew of this Bhakthi/Prapatthi route to the Lord and declared in His presence “Unnai arutthitthu vanthOm, parai taruthiyAhil, Thiruttakka selvamum sEvakamum yaamm paadi, vaarutthamum theernthu MahizhvOm” We have woken up all the gOpis and we have come in a state of great purity to You seeking the greatest of purushArthams. If You would grant us the boons sought by us, we will sing about the great and matching wealth of You and Your PirAtti and engage in sEvaka vruthti to You both and be rid of all of our dukkhams and attain bliss (BrahmAnandham). “uRREn uhanthu paNi seythu unn paadham peRREn” is One AzhvAr’s Sri Sookthi (adiyEn became dear to You and joyfully performed kaimkaryam for You and attained the parama bhAgyam of Your sacred feet). The Gopis say in this context: “Thirutthakka Selvamum, sEvakamum yaam paadi, varutthamum theernthu mahizhvOm”.Lord KrishNa talks about those born to divine destiny (dhaivI sampadhi) and the others born to demonic destiny (aasuri bhUthA:). The Gopis are the dearest to Him since they have dhaivI sampadhi. The Lord resides in their Hrudh puNDarIkams with great vaathsalyam. Kamsan and his ilk are the aasuri (demonic) type and the lord stays inside their stomach as huge fire (Kanjan karutthai pizhaipitthu vayiRRil neruppu yenna ninRa NedumAlE) to destroy them.

..26th..We perform hrudh-Yaagam (mAnasIka aarAdhanam) first and then engage in BhAhyArAdhanam (external aarAdhanam). Latter has six steps (aasanams) as established by sishtAgresarars (done by the leaders of righteous conduct: mElayAr seyvanakaL). The word group “mElayAr seyvanakaL vENDuvana” is the essence of this paasuram, where sishtAchAram (Conductof the noble ones)is celebrated as the way to follow, whenever one is in doubt.
 The six Aasanams are: (1) manthrAsanam (2) SnAnAsanam (3)alankArAsanam (4) bhOjyAsanam (5) punar-manthrAsanam and (6) paryankAsanam. We have to seat the Lord in each of the six aasanams and offer upachArams.
The six accessories desired by Gopis for the AaarAdhanam match with the six aasanams: (1) blowing of the conch (pranava nAtham) (2) Vadhya ghOsham performed Thirumanjanam (3) manthra pushpam and recitation of aruLiccheyalkaL & Vedic chanting. This is equivalent to singing PallANDu (4) The samarpaNam of NaivEdhyam for the Lord is known as lighting a lamp (5) vij~nApanam is made whether the Lord desires any sanchaaram on Garudan, His kodi (Dhvajam) and (6) the vidhAnam (canopy) is spread over the Lord’s bed. Thus, the six upakaraNams (Sankhu, Parai, PallANDU-isaippAr, Kola ViLakku, Kodi and VidhAnam) are mappable to the six Aasanams prescribed for the six stages of external AarAdhanam for the Lord.

..27th..KoodAr: These, who are not with the Lord are of four kinds: (a) those with no Jn~Anam at all about EmperumAn (b) Those who chase after material things (c) Those who do not comprehend the soulabhyam (ease of access) guNam of the Lord and stay away from Him (d) those, who can not stand His vaibhavam and are resentful .
KoodArai vellum seer GovindhA: With His anantha kalyANa gunams (seer), the Lord wins them all over, one by one. He has different prescriptions as Viadhya Veera Raaghavan for each of the vimukhA patients though His The guNams like Souryam, Souseelyam, Soundharyam. Even IndrA, who sent a deluge of rain at Govardhanam ended up recognizing the Supermacy of the Lord & performed Govindha-PattAbhishEkam. Govindhan defeats the KoodAr and is defeated in turn by the Koodinavar through their Bhakthi/ prapatthi anushtAnams. He becomes YathOkthakAri to those devotees (Koodinavar). ANDAL points out that the Lord incarnates to bring back the erring Jeevans under His sway; they stayed away earlier from Him and suffered as a result of their separation from Him. He could not bear with their sufferings. They (vimukhAs) observe later (thru a sadAchAryan) upAya anushtAnam (prapatthi) and get rewarded with parisukaL (SammAnam) that are coveted by the people of world (yaam perum sammAnam nadu puhazhum parisinAl). AntharyAmyAradhanam is celebrated (Bhunjan chinthaya GOVINDHAM). Those who take SaathvIka aahAram with Govindha naamam get the benefits of satthva-JnAnam (Aaahara Suddhou sathtva Sudhdi:, sathva suddhou dhruvA Smruthi:).

..28th..In each paadam a distinct message is conveyed.(1) “karavaikaL pinn senRu ghAnam sErnthuNpOm”), the Gopis describe themselves as the ones, who seek their livelihood by tending to cattle in the forests and thus do NOT have sath-Kaarya Phalan.(2) “aRivonRumillA Aaikkulatthu”, they reveal their unfitness (apakarsha anusandhAnam) to pursue Bhakthi, Jn~Ana Yogams. We are Tatthva-Hitha-PurushArtha Jn~Ana Soonyars. “Jn~AnEna Heena: pasubhi: samAna:”(3) “piRavi peRumtanai puNNiyam yaam udayOm”, they refer to the extraordinary BhAgyam of having KrishNA born as sajAthIyan in their Kulam.(4) the Gopis address Him as “KuRaivonRumillatha GovindhA”. They celebrate here the moola Sukrutham (the fundamental, quintessential bhAgyam) of Isvara GuNa Poorthy (PrApya-Prapaka sangrahathvam and GuNa Thungathvam).(5) “UnRannOduravEl namakku inku ozhikka ozhiyAthu”, the Gopis celebrate the sambhandha Jn~Anam (6) “aRiyAtha piLLaikaLOm anbinAl”, the Gopis identify themselves as the little country girls without awareness of lOka maryAdhai and without Bhakthi or Jn~Anam.
I(7) “UnraNNai siRu pEr azhaithtanavum sseRi aruLAthE”, the Gopis seek PoorvAparAdha KshAmanam (forgiveness for previous trespasses).(8) the Gopis address te Lord as “IRaivA” and request for Kaimkarya sampath (Nee ThArAi parai). Here UpAya apEkshai is made.

..29th..SIRRAM SIRU KAALE VANTHU: AruNodhaya Kaalam is chosen by Gopis to arrive at Lord KrishNA the time at which the Jn~Anam of the Lord happens (siRRam siRu Kaalam). AzhwAr says : “kaalai nann jn~Anat thuRai padinthAdi”. The dawning of the Jn~Anam about EmperumAn through SadAchArya is SiRRam SiRu Kaalai. “SiRRam SiRu Kaalam” is the time from Prapathti to the shaking of the mortal coils is the for the Prapannan, when MunivarkaL and Yogis rise gently and start Hari nAma sankIrthanam. Gopis seem to say that it is difficult to see You (KrishNA) once the day has dawned as he goes to the fields to graze the cows. Andal reminds us of the KshaNa Karthavya upAyam of Praaptthi (that which is done in siRiya kaalam) with the invocation of the words, “siRRam sIRu kaalE”.
VANTHU UNNAI SEVITTHU: Gopis ask KrishNA to think about the way they came in that cold morning with dew drops on their heads. They remind Him that they have come driven by their fears about their aakinchanyam and ananya gathithvam and have come to worship Him and pray for Kaimkarya Sri. “Sevitthu” refers to the Veda Vaakyam: “BhUyishtAm tE NAMA Ukthim vidhEma”. We have come here with anjali bhaddha hasthams since we know about our mElayAr’s saying: “Ohr anjaliyum uNDaRukka maattAthu”. You melt like sugar in water, when a Bhakthan stands before You with anjali mudhrA. That indeed is anjali Vaibhavam. Therefore we have come before You at the early dawn withfolded hands (sEvitthu).

..30th..Vangak Kadal Kadaintha Maadhavanaik Kesavanai
EmperumAn churned the Milky Ocean to gain nectar for the dEvaas and PeNNamuthu (MahA lakshmi)for Himself. KrishNan churned the ocean of curd in Gokulam. The Lord, who used the excuse of churning
the milky ocean to gain MahA Lakshmi also used the ThiruppAvai nOnbhu as the VyAjam for gaining the Pancha Laksha Kudis (gOpis) of Gokulam.  ANDAL addresses the Vangak Kadal kadainthavan as “Maadhavan” and “Kesavan”. She addressed the Lord as “Maadhavan” following the Upadesam of Her AchAryan, PeriyAzhwAr: “Maarvam yenpathOr kOil amaitthu MAADHAVAN yenpathOr Dhaivatthai naatti”. Kesavan is the adhishta Devathai for Maarghazhi month. The reference to the act of churning the Milky ocean (Vangak kadal Kadaintha) by the Lord points out His Bhaktha Vaathsalyam and Omnipotence.  “angu appaRai koNDavARRai”: “angu” (there) refers to the incident of the Gopis winning paRai (there) at AaypAdi, (there)at Nandha Gruham and(there) at the throne room in presence of NeeLA PirAtti. “appaRai” is to be split in to antha-Parai, appERpatta, VisEsha paRai.  “paimkamalat taNN teRiyal Bhattar PirAn Godhai Sonna”: Godhai identifies Herself as Bhattar PirAn’s (PeriyAzhwAr’s) Godhai. He was Her foster fatherand also Her AchAryan.

Thirupaavai Bhavam-part-1..

December 30, 2008

..1st..Seer malhum: The place where those blessed ones, who comprehend fully the anantha kalyANa GuNams of the Lord reside AaypADi: nErizhayeer: Oh People with the noble traits of Samam and dhamam (auspicious Aathma GuNams of Tranquility and Control over the senses)!NiRaintha- ThingaL Mathi: On this day, which is like the Moon with all its sixteen digits (kalai) just as the ShAdgunya SampoorNa BhagavAn Himself..NannALAl: Since it is such an auspicious day Maarghazhi Neerada pOthuveer pOdhuminO!: Those who wish to follow the most noble upAyam (means) of Prapatthi (self-surrender)!Please join us!Thozhilan: One who destroys our sins

..2nd..KIRISAIGAL (Observances) are of three kinds: Vaachikam, Kaayikam and Maanasam
(by one’s speech, limbs and mind). Singing /naama Sankeerthanam (paadi) is Vachika kaaryam;
taking bath, giving alms are kaayikam kaaryams; thinking about Him is the maanasika kaaryam.
ANDAL insists all should wear six mangaLa vasthus (1) Mettu in toes (2) Valai (bangles) (3) Nose screw (4) ThirumAngalyam (5) Tilakam (6) Pushpam..ACTS TO BE DISCARDED(1) “TheekkuRalaic-chenROdhOm” (we will not speak painful untruth and engage in purposeless talk) (2) “SeyyAthana seyyOm”: We will not think on subjects that will lead us astray. (3) “NeyyuNNOm PaaluNNOm”: We will not consume ghee and milk…THAT SRIMAN NAARAYANAN IS “PARAMAN”The Greatest of the greatest One is our Lord, who performs Yoga Nidhrai on Adhi Seshan in the midst of the Milky Ocea, has none Equal to Him or Superior to Him. With Sri MahAlakshmi’s , He shines as Param JyOthi there and becomes Parama Purushan and PurushOtthaman…ANDAL addressed of us as “Vaitthu VaazhverkAL” or the BhAgyasaalis, who got the difficult-to obtain Nara Janmam to observe the Vratham of SaraNAgathi and follow the life of PrapannA ..

..3rd..”NeerAdinAl” here refers to the UpadEsam of SaraNAgathi rahasyam by SadAchAryAs and its observance by SadhsishyAs. “MummAri” is benefits of attaining the fruits of the Vratham (SaraNAgathi) by Upadesam, study of divya Prabhandhams & enjoying the ArchA moorthis at their dhivya desams.“Ongu peru-sennalUdu Kayal ukaLa” are PrapannAs thriving in the land rich with AchAryAs, who are like strong fishes jumping with joy in the paddy fields, who see their efforts by Ukthi and AchArya Nishtai (to do SaraNAgathi) have borne fruit.
“PoomkuvaLai pOthil PoRi VaNDu kaNN Paduppa” refers to Sriman NarAyaNa sleeping without worry in our heart lotuses (Hrudhaya Kamalams) that His workthrough His AchAryAs has been successful. He sleeps like a content farmer, who has realized abundant crops.“VaLLal perum pasukkaL” compares to generous AchAryAs, who never expect any returns. They use the equivalent of the four fingers of the udders of the abundant milk giving cows to impart knowledge about the three parama rahasyams of Sri VaishNavam. The four fingers of the udder through which this milk of Knowledge (Jn~ana milk) flows are Vedam, Smruthi, Saathvika PurANams and AzhwAr Paasurams. “NeengAtha Selvam NiRainthu” is the undiminishing wealth of Jn~Anam at all times on His Leela VibhUthi (Earth) & in His Transcendent world of Sri Vaikuntam

..4th..Aazhi Mazhaik KaNNA: Oh Venerable AchAryAs, who pour down the rain of Jn~Anam and whose eyes are flodded with the showers of aanandham (bliss) through Bhagavath anubhavam! Nee onRu kai karavEl:
Please bless us with all the meanings of the three rahasyams without holding back any Oozhi mudalvan uruvam pOl mey karutthu: You (AchAryAs) who have the dark hue of the Lord due to your constant meditation of that dark-complexioned Lord and You who are filled with infinite dayA similar to that of the Lord and who are the embodiment of His compassion (Tanmayathvam) PaRpanAbhan kaiyil Aazhi pOl minni: You who have the radiance arising from your dhivya Jn~Anam Valampuri pOl ninRu athirnthu: You roaring like HayagrIva ghOsham (Jn~Anandha maya vijaya ghOsham)Udaittha Sara Mazhai pOl: showering the Jn~Ana varsham (torrent of Jn~Anam) like the bhANa Varsham (the torrent of arrows leaving KodhanDa Raaman’s Saarangam bow) Ulahinil Vaazha: For the people of the world to survive and live Mahinzthu peythidAi: please rain (of Jn~Anam) with joy
naangaLum mahizhnthu Maarghazhi neerAda: so that we engage in the most exalted Maargha seersham act of Prapatthi/SaraNAgathi at Your sacred feet!

..5th..“MaayOnai”: Our Lord is a MaayAvi. ANDAL addresses Him next this MaayOn as “Mannu Vada Mathurai Mainthan”. Mannu stands for Vada Mathurai, where the Lord has blessed through His Bhagavath Saaniddhyam.
“Thooya peru neer Yamunai”: YamunA is most sacred and pure. YamunA cleaved and let VasudEvar walk across its sandy bed, on the dark rainy night of JanmAshtami. Yamunai had deha sambhandham with the Lord through His Jala kreedais there with Gopis. “Aayar Kulatthinil thOnRum aNi viLakkai”: Our Lord was born in Raaja Kulam to VasudEvA and Devaki. He surfaced in the community of cowherds (AaypAdi). ANDAL saluted Him as “ThOnRum aNi ViLakkai” or the most beautiful, lustrous lamp that appeared amidst the aayar kulam.
“ThAyai Kudal Vilakkam seytha DhAmOdharanai” KaNNan was caught by YasOdhA while stealing butter and tied Him by to a mortar . YasOdhai was His mother and a Bhakthai. Hence, the Lord allowed Himself to be bound. Even today, One sees the three welt marks on the waist of Lord RanganAtha. “ThUmalar thoovi thozhuthu, VaayinAL paadi, ManathinAl chinthikka”: Suddha pushpAnjali, TuLasi Pushpa samarpanam and manthra Pushpa samarpaNam are very dear to our Lord’s heart. Hence..ANDAL recommends them here. “Cheppu”: The paasuram ends with the command, “cheppu” (say). “Sri KrishNAnu smaraNam Param” as saathvika Thyaagam (KrishNArpanam..

..6th..PiLLAi YezhunthirAi: Please discard your childish attitude that the Supreme Lord and You are one and the same and gain true knowledge about Your Master-servant relationship with Him and awaken!
MunivarkaLum YogikaLum: the two kinds of prapannAs practice Bhakthi Yogam ( Bhagavath guNAnubhavan and Kainkarya anubhavam ).Hari YenRa pEraravam: approach the Lord and loudly request Him to eliminate the Paapams and PuNyams, which are the seeds of SamsAric afflictions (approach AchAryan as Moksha bheeja BhUthan)
uLLam Puhunthu: That aartha naatham (sufferer’s loud cry) of the PrapannAs entered through the Lord’s (AchAryA’s) ears and reached His (their) heart(s).KuLirnthu: That sound reaching the Lord’s heart made Him happy and contented; That anubhavam of the Lord (Achaaryan) made Him PrasAdha-Visishtan for us. Hearing this uplifting message and its effect on our Lord (AchAryan), Oh Girl, please awaken and join in the Nonbhu!

..7th..Keesu Keesu yenRu: Haven’t you heard their sweet dialog, yengum pEsina pEccharavam kEttilayO?:(Oh PrapannA! You will realize all your wishes as a result of your performing prapatthi and the Lord responding with the blessing “May you perform all Kaimkaryams for us in all places and times — pEy peNNE!: Oh Maiden, who is deeply lost in Bhagavathanubhavam and as a result look like a deluded one!Vaasa NaRum Kuzhal Aacchiyar: VyAsar and other AchAryAs who have researched on the fragrant tresses like Upanishads, which contain inside them the Sarvaghandhan, Sriman NaarAyaNan..They raise hands matthinAl osai- after churning with intellect paduttha thayir : the curd (annam) like BhOgya NaarAyaNan aravam kEttilayO?: declare that Sriman NaarAyaNan is Para DEvathai.
Oh pEy peNNE! Haven’t you heard that loud declaration?– Naayaka peNN piLLAi: Oh smart one, who understands fully the Para dEvathA aspect of our Lord and thereby have become the leader
of our ghOshti NaarAyaNan Moorthy Kesavanaip paadavum: when they sing that NaarAyaNan is
the One, who created BrahmA and Sivan..nee kEtte kidatthiyO?: even after hearing that powerful message, how can you stay without performing SaraNAgathi at Sriman NaarAyaNan’s sacred feet?

 

..8th..Oh Joyous Maiden, who is very dear to the Lord! Please come and join this ghOshti. We have come to take you with us on our journey to AchAryan, who protects our Indhriyams from entering into destructive ways and who by the power of Jn~Anam and anushtAna sakthi destroys Naasthikan as well as Kudhrushtis (Those who have viparItha Jn~Anam and interpret Veda Manthrams wrongly). That AchAryan is greater than even sarvEsvaran for us. We should sing his praise through his taniyan and get our minds cleared by the anushtAnam of Prapatthi
and understand well the mode of behavior after prapatthi & practise it; afterwards, placing AchAryan in front, if we arrive at Bhagavath SannidhAnam and prostrate before The Lord of Lords, He will be elated and inquire carefully into our qualifications as aartha prapannan (One who is desirous of Moksham without delay) or dhruptha Prapannan (One who wishes MoKsham at the time of falling of this body) and grant us the appropriate prapatthi phalan.
In addition to the deep spiritual insight gleaned from the passages of this paasuram, one can not but fall at the sacred feet of ANDAL for Her immaculate poetic skills in the description of the advancement of dawn. Those who have seen the red hue of dawn shifting slowly into different degrees of whiteness as the Sun climbs up can relate well to Her choice words “Keezh Vaanam VeLLenRu”. ThoNDardippodi’s ThirupaLLIyezhucchi paasura Vaakhyams alos echo in our minds: “SudaroLi paranthana Soozh disai yellAM thunniya thAtakai minnoLi surungi”.

..9th..“ThoomaNi maadatthu suRRum ViLakkeriya”. ThoomaNi Maadam is the eternal, defect free, all revealing Vedam (Nigama Soudham). “SuRRum” refers to the six angams (limbs) of Vedam like SeekshA et al. “ViLakku” is Jn~Anam or UpabrumhaNams like Smruthi, PurANas that explain the meanings of VedAs. “SuRRum ViLakku Yeriya” is the Jn~Ana dheepams shining in that ThoomaNi Maadam. AzhwArs have referred to this Jn~Ana dheepam (ViLakku) often: “AkAra Vaachyan”, Sriman NaarAyanan. “DhUpam kamazha Thyuil anai mEl kaNN VaLarum”:
are (1) Jn~Anam (2) AnushtAnam (3) VairAgyam. “MaamIr avaLai yezhuppIrO? Unn MahaL thaann UmayO? anRic cheviDO? ananthalO?: address to MahA Lakshmi (LakshmI SambhOdhanam) “maamaayan maadhavan vaikundhan enRenRu naaman palavum navinRu”. the words chosen by ANDAL:“MAAMAAYAN”. He gives three interpretations: (1) Maa+aayan = the Big Gopa KumAran (2) Maa+ aayan = that Gopa Kumaaran associated with MahA Lakshmi (Maa sabdham of MaalOlan, Maadhavan); He is thus Sriya: Pathi (3) maa+ aayan = maa being “not” and aayan meaning “a cowherd boy”. Our Lord is not a Aayan (not born in the cowherd clan) but is MahA VishNu incarnating as GopAlan for Dharma Samrakshanam.

 

..10th..THULASI MAHATHMYAM..Salutation to Sriman NaarAyaNan and His glories are housed in the passage “NaaRat thuzhAi mudi NaarAyaNan” Here the Lord is invoked in the form of wearing the sacred ThuLasi on His Siras to assure us that His Vratham is to give the boon of Moksham for those, who perform SaraNAgathi at His feet
(nammAl pORRa Parai tharum PuNNiyan).ThuLasi’s glory is also indicated in this Paasuram (nARRa ThuzhAi Mudi NaarAyanan). “nARRa Thuzhai” is fragrant ThuLasi adorning His Siras (over the Kiritam). It has been presented by Soodikkoduttha NaacchiyAr earlier. Lord KrishNA says in this context in MahA BhAratham: “Among Pushpams, ThuLasi flower is the most sacred”.
ThuLasi was born during the time of the churning of the milky ocean (amrutha Matanam) by the Lord.
The Thulasi flower, leaves, kattai/log (Kaashtam) and root are all important in Bhagavath AarAdhanam, At SrivilliputthUr, ANDAL incarnated at the foot of a ThuLasi plant. During the month of Marghazhi, any one performing Pongal naivEdhyam for our Lord cooked in the fire made from ThuLasi Kaashtai obtains indescribable auspiciousness; so does one, who iscremated with Thulasi Kaashtai sambhandham.
In Maasi Ratha Sapthami and EkAdasi, naivEdhyam for PerumAl with food cooked over
ThuLasi Infinite indeed are the glories of TuLasi , the TuLasi Vana Sudari, SaakshAth KashamA (Godhai

..11th..Having drunk the milk of Jn~Anam from Upanishads, smruthi, IthihAsa PurANams independent of their size or complexity and Having won over naasthikars and aasthika abhimAnis in saastrEic debates
Oh Sathsishyan, who has been blessed with sadAchAryan, with mastery over the blemishless VedAs!. Oh sathsishyan, who dances like a happy peacock (that has seen the rainy clouds) while singing the many naamAs of our Lord!

pOdharAi: May Thou be engaged in this aanandha anubhavam! — SuRRathtu ThOzhimAr: The aadhivAhikars, who display yellAm vanthu freindship to You, the Prapannan have come now.

ninn muRRam puhunthu: They have entered the front gates of Your (of the one, who has cast aside the gross body and entered into the subtle body/sookshma sarIram) house.— Muhil VaNNan pEr paada: They are reciting the Lord’s names and are ready to lead you to His supreme abode at the final stages of your journey via archirAdhi maargam, like BhaagavathAs reciting manthrams into your ear.

siRRAthE: You should cast away any concerns about committing sins consciously or otherwise. — pEsAthE: You should speak of nothing except Bhagavan naamAs. nee selavap pendAtti: You become thus the one appreciated by BhagavAn Himself. — uRangum poruL yeRRukku?: You have no more vinais to worry about? Why then this sleep rooted in fear and brahmam (delusion)?

..12th..Mother MahAlakshmi thinks about Her young children (chEthanams) and She has nirvEdham for them because of their suffering and takes great pity (daya) on them. She feeds them the milk of JnA~na through Her breasts (mulai vazhiyAha) copiously until the heart of the chEthanam is drenched (“ninRu sOra nanaitthu seRu aakkum”) and the chEthanam becomes
the possessor of limitless, evergrowing Jn~Ana sampath.

Oh beautiful lady, the sister of the possessor of such visEsha Jn~anam! Please achieve through pancha samskAram the vivEkam banishing dEhathma bramam and take refuge at the sacred feet of the Lord, who is the embodiment of Sathyam, Jn~Anam, anantham, amalam and Aanandam. That prapatthi removes ancient prArabdha karmAs. It is easy to practice by anyone.

Knowing how easy it is to practice, please awaken. The BhagavathAs around You have known the KshaNa phala daayakam of Prapatthi and have performed Prapatthi. Why you alone have the tendency to stay in the darkness of SamsAra kaaLa Raathri?

..13th..This gopi is firm about her assessment that the Lord, has to come to her because of her most beautiful eyes. She does not think that she should go to Him.

“PuLLin Vaaik keenDAnai” is about KrishNa’s valor. After He cleaved the beak of Bakaasuran and killed him, then, the young gOpAs plucked the feathers of the bird-shaped asuran and hung them (feahters) up like a thOraNam to remind all what would happen if some one commits unpardonable apachAram to the Lord.

“pollA arakkan” is Raavanan; saadhu arakkan is his saathvik brother, VibhishaNan. His saathvik tendency and gratefulness to Raamachandran for accepting his Prapathti is told by Kamban as: “panju yena sivakkum menkAl Deviyai pirittha paavi Vanchahanukku-ILaya yennai, varuha yenRu aruL seythAnE”.

“PaLLikkidatthiyO?”: The gOpi being awakened is really not sleeping. She is chewing in her mind over her blissful anubhavam of union earlier with the Lord on that bed. She had KrishNa sparsam before. The gopis say: “You are like a Paavai (Bhommai) and as such do
not have the skills to understand that the MaayAvi has left and that he is no longer at your side.

Meaning of neerAttam: Thinking of the Lord is NeerAttam; ArchAvathAra sEvai is “kudainthu neerAttam”; Thinking of Vibhava avathAram RaamA and KrishNA is “KuLira NeerAttam”; the darsanam of Sri VaikuntanAthan is “KuLLak KuLira NeerAttam”, the ultimate bliss

..14th..“UngaL Puzhakkadai thOttatthu vaaviyuL Senkazhuneer vaai nehizhnthu”:= Jn~Anam has blossomed in the heart of the tree in SamsAram allocated for the chEthanams.
“Aambhal vaai Koombina”:= The flowers like Kaamam, mathsaram et al associated with aj~nam have closed their petals. “SenkaRk kodikkURai veNN pall tavatthavar tankaL thirukkOil sangiduvAn pOhinRAr”= Many wearing the sacred clay (ThirumaNN) originating from SvEtha dhvIpam, wearing red bordered vasthrams and possessing the power of great penance are meditating on the Lord in their Hrudhaya PuNDarIkam through PraNavOpAsanam.
“YenkaLai munnam yezhuppuvAn vaai pEsum NangAi YezhunthirAI”= May You as UtthamAdhikAri, who stated to wake us immersed in the timeless samsAram, get up and bless us! “NaaNAthAi NaavudayAyai” Oh Uthama AdhikAri, who is not reticent about instructing us on sadh Vishayams! Oh Nangai who is blessed with sadh-Vaak to recite the names of our Lord!
“Sankodu Chakkaram yEnthum Tatakkaiyaan Pankayakkananai paada”= Please instruct us on the margam of UpAsanai of the Lord who holds the unique symbols like Sankam and chakkaram in His hands to denote His Parathvam.

This Paasuram is “ThiruppAvayilum ThiruppAvai”. Among the dhivya prabhandhams. In all the thirty paasurams of ThiruppAvai, this paasuram is the most important. Even in this paasuram, the passage “naanE thaan aayiduha” is the supremely important one with great depths and depths of meaning.

..15th..TEN CHARACTERISTICS OF UTTHAMA
SRI VAISHNAVAAS
(1) “ellE ilankiLiyE”: the implied sense is that the speech of the devotee (BhagavathA) is most
welcome. (2) “innam uRangudiyO?”: it is wrong to indulge in other things (vishayams) when the company
of BhagavathAs is available. (3) “chil yenRu azhayEnmin” : Not a single harsh word should be used in conversation with BhAgavathAs. (4) “nangaimeer pOdarhinREn”: BhAgavathAs should be addressed most respectfully with utter/sincere humility.
(5) “Vallai un katturaigaL”: even the chastisement by a BhAgavathA (which will always be constructive) should be accepted gracefully.(6) “ValleergaL neengaLE naane thaan aayiduga”: Owning others’ mistakes as one’s own is the hallmark (LakshaNam) of a true Sri VaishNavan. (7) “ollai nee pOdhAi”: separation form the BhAgavathAs even for a second is unbearable.(8) “unakenna vERudayai”: The path laid down by one’s poorvAs need to be followed, not what is dictated by one’s own mind.(9) “ellArum pOndhArO pOnthAr ponthu yeNNikkoL”: seeing a congregation of BhAgavathAs (and being part of that group)is the most desired fruit in this life. (10) “VallAnai konRAnai mARRArai mARRazhikka vallAnai Mayanai paadu”: Singing His (Lord’s) virtues, valour, victory and other kalyANa guNAs are vital to a Sri VaishNavA as means of pleasing other Sri VaishNavAs; as such, it results in the service of BhAgavathAs (BhAgavatha daasyam..

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Those who fix their minds on My personal form and are always engaged in worshiping Me with great and transcendental faith are considered by Me to be most perfect.”

Ye = [the devotee] who, upasate = meditates, nitya yukata = with the desire of being always with, mam =Me [Sri Krishna], avesya = focussed or concentrated-selutha patta -, mano = mind, mayy = on Me [Sri Krishna], parayopeta shraddhaya = -mihuntha aarvathodum-yeedu paattodu-with very great dedication or commitment, te = [such a person] he, yukta tama = elakkai sulabamaaha adaivaarkall..siranthavar..reach the objective easily and early, me mata = [this is] My [Sri Krishna’s] opinion.  nirbharo nirbhayasmi – no responsibilities and no fears. .yen edathil-vuruvam–gunnangall-anbu seluthuvanaay -avan mel kooda aasai pattu — anubavithu -mad karma-seyyum seyal yellaam avanukku thaan -palan karuthaamal..avanai adaiyvathey palan..manam avan edam yeedu pattu kaariyam panninaal yellaam nantraaha erukkum.. naan-svandran ellai adimai thaan..bayam yetharkkum varaathu -paaramum ellai ..thudippudan, aarvathudan, vunnmaiyaaha erukka venndum –neermai gunnathil yeedu paduvathu sulabam.. kuselan, viruthan pola ..

Ramanuja’s Commentary ..The words avesya manah means focusing the mind and includes fixing the heart exclusively upon Lord Krishna otherwise if it is not exclusive something else may enter in and then it will not be possible for the Supreme Lord to be their only object of meditation. The word sraddha means firm faith and those so endowed eagerly and enthusiastically strive for divine communion with the Supreme Lord. Those who propitiate Lord Krishna in this way with mind and hearts absorbed totally in Him are His best devotees and yuktamamah the most superior of all as they joyfully and skilfully with great eclat and determination navigate themselves swiftly through the currents of life to attain eternal communion with the Supreme Lord.

But those who fully worship the unmanifested, that which lies beyond the perception of the senses, the all-pervading, inconceivable, unchanging, fixed and immovable—the impersonal conception of the Absolute Truth—by controlling the various senses and being equally disposed to everyone, such persons, engaged in the welfare of all, at last achieve Me. For those whose minds are attached to the unmanifested, impersonal feature of the Supreme, advancement is very troublesome. To make progress in that discipline is always difficult for those who are mbodied.”

Sri Krishna tells Arjuna. Dehavadbhi = associated with a body, ordinary people will not be able to meditate on atman that easily. Ye tu = [those] who are, upasate = meditate on, aksharam = not diminishing, that is atman, anirdesyam = not identifiable [ that is atman can not be identified as we identify various objects], avyaktam = not perceptible [by sense organs], sarvatra-gam = in all bodies [same atman takes various bodies in various births], acintyam = can not be comprehended or understood, kut-stham = common [to all living beings], acalam = not slipping [ that is atman never slips from its characteristic], dhruvam = everlasting, that is body is destroyable while atman is not. San-niyamya = controlling, indriya-gramam = all sense organs. Sarvatra = all atman in various bodies, sama-buddhaya = are same knowledge.  Sarva-bhuta- hite raha = showing same attitude to every living being, te = such a person [ devoting on atman], prapnuvanti = reach, mam eva = Me [Sri Krishna] alone.Klesam = the sufferings [in reaching one’s own atman] are, adhikatara = much more [than in reaching the Lord]. Why so? Because, they are meditating on asakta – cetasam = involved mind in, avyakta = unperceptible [atman, not felt by sense organs]. Dehavadbhi = associated with body, Avyakta = atman, gati = as destination or goal is, hi dukham = also sorrowful, avapyate = in reaching.

Ramanuja’s Commentary .-sloham-12-3-. Those who are attracted to meditation and upasate or worship on the avyakta or the unmanifest, impersonal brahman being the spiritual substratum pervading all existence or are devoted to realising the imperishable nature of their atma or eternal soul which is indefinable by the mind and imperceptible find that both ways are completely impossible to be perceived by any of the senses. The phrase sarvatra-gam acintyam means all pervading and inconceivable, respectively. The understanding is that despite the atma or eternal soul being present in the etheric heart of every living entity everywhere in creation in the demigods, the humans, the animals, the fish, the plants etc. It is completely inconceivable how the total aggregate of all these trillions upon trillions of souls approaching even an infinite amount actually comprise the transcendental, spiritual body of the Supreme Lord Krishna. Not only is it not possible to conceive this, it is also impossible to imagine what such an infinite spiritual form would appear like so it is completely indescribable. Even if one achieved atma- tattva or soul realisation and were able to perceive the form of their individual atma it would not be of any consequence in conceiving by any stretch of the imagination such an infinite and phenomenal spiritual form. The word kutastham means stable or uniform denoting that essence which never changes in form regardless of the constant changing of bodies of all living beings every life, thus it is acalam or immutable because of its singular unmoving nature and thus dhruvam or everlasting. Along with this must be sanniyamyendriya-gramam meaning all the senses must be fully controlled and restrained from absorption in their accustomed sense objects. The phrase sarvatra sama-buddhayah means equanimity towards all living entities which manifests itself when the cognition of the atma residing in the etheric heart of all living entities being of variegated and diverse species seen specifically as consciousness although concealed by various forms becomes a reality. Firmly fixed in this understanding one automatically becomes sarva-bhuta-hite ratah or favourably disposed to the welfare of all living entities or it can mean well removed from wishing any enmity towards any jiva or embodied being, for enmity is a product engendered by false ego due to imagining gradations in the atma’s between jivas because of external differences in their physical bodies.

Ramanuja’s Commentary .sloham-12-5…Whosoever devotes themselves to contemplation of the atma will certainly prapnuvanti or attain the Supreme Lord which means that by realisation of the atma is essentially realising an essence of the Supreme Lord which is like unto His essence as paramatma the Supreme Soul within the etheric heart of all living entities. This is what is affirmed later in chapter 14, verse 2 with the words mama sadharmyam agatah meaning endowed with a form similar to the Supreme Lords. The Mundaka Upanisad III.I,II,III beginning niranjanah paramam samyam states: Absolved from all sins one achieves sublime similarity with the Supreme Lord. Also in Mundaka Upanisad I.I-V beginning atha para yaya tad aksharam adhigamyate which means: Now that the higher science by which the aksara can be reached. Parabrahma or the Supreme Lord Himself is also designated by the word aksara for He is the source of all beings. That the Supreme Lord is known as Parabrahma is confirmed as distinct from the atma will be explained later in chapter 15, verse 17. But those who minds are attracted to avyakta the unmanifest, impersonal brahman, their tribulations and difficulties are great. This includes those who meditate upon the atma as well for the meditation of controlling the mind to think of all activities in relation to one’s individual atma without being able to imagine it in any way while performing physical and material activities is tantamount to great struggle and futile results..

“But those who worship Me, giving up all their activities unto Me and being devoted to Me without deviation, engaged in devotional service and always meditating upon Me, having fixed their minds upon Me, O son of Pritha—for them I am the swift deliverer from the ocean of birth and death.”

Mayi = unto Me [Sri Krishna], sarvani karmani = everyone’s responsibilities, the result of everyone’s actions and attachment to those responsibilities,-thozlil, palan, pattru anaithaiyum – sannyasya = dedicate. Mat-parah = yennaiyey ladshiyamaay-elakkaay- avan thiru vullam mahizla vaikka -ethu thaan bakthi ..having Me [Sri Krishna] as the destination or objective.  Ananyenaiva yogena = yoga, [with objectives] none other than reaching,-veru payan yethir paaraamal– Mam = Me [Sri Krishna].Dhyayanta upasane = devotion with meditation and the likes. The word upasana here means all activities like meditation, prostrating, archana, singing, pradakshinam [going around in temples], making garlands, offering flowers, making sandal wood paste, helping devotees, gifting food [அன்ன தானம்], etc. All thses are considered as in Bhakti marg or devotional path. Ye tu = such a person [ doing all listed above]-eppadi evan erukiraano avan… tesam = to them, aham = I [Sri Krishna] am, samuddharta = redeemer [one who lifts a struggling person]-thaanndu vippavan.. , mrityu-samsara-sagarat = from the death like samsara [worldly life] ocean. the cycle of births and deaths.-piravi yennum perum kadalil erunthu ..aatma svaroobathai azlikkum samsaaram..mirthu-vudal koduthu aatma gjanathai mazlunga vaikkum ..thukkam suham-alaikall koodina samsaara kadal.. Partha =Arjuna, na cirat = not for long or quickly, is rescued. -cira-vehukaalam ..vahu seekiramaaha  mukthi allikireyn ..Because, avesita – cetasam = [the devotee’s] involved mind, mayy = in Me [Sri Krishna].

Ramanuja’s Commentary ..sloham-12-6-Actions are of two types. One is worldly activities undertaken to maintain and progress the material existence of the physical body such as obtaining food and shelter and material development. The other is spiritual activities enjoined by the injunctions of the Vedic scriptures such as propitiation to the Supreme Lord, absence of violence to any living being, charity, etc. in short every act without an ulterior motive and without a hopeful gain. Whosoever being spiritual minded without any motive except for satisfying the Supreme Lord Krishna and without any desire of seeking anything in return from Him, who offer all their activities as devotion to Him, keeping Him alone as their sole goal and in one-pointed devotion focus their meditation on Him fully while worshipping Him in all their activities such as chanting His holy names, glorifying Him, offering prayers to Him, prostrating before His deity form, hearing about His lilas or divine pastimes, enlightening others about His glories, etc. as the be all and end all of all existence itself. To such devotees as these who always are in communion with Lord Krishna in their hearts and minds, He Himself personally becomes their saviour by being their samuddharta or deliverer from mrtyu-samsara-sagarat or the deadly ocean of the perpetual cycle of birth and death which is the principle barrier which stops the atma’s or eternal souls of all jivas or embodied from attaining Him when the end of each physical life has transpired..

“Just fix your mind upon Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt.”

The Lord tells Arjuna, na samsaya = never have any doubt.-santheham veynndaam.. Mayy eva = only in Me [Sri Krishna], mana = [Arjuna’s] mind, adhatsva = layikka, nilaikka -should concentrate.

Ramanuja’s Commentary ..Inasmuch as the Supreme Lord Krishna is the paramount of all and the ultimate achievement being the highest possible attainment for all living entities throughout creation, one should dedicate themselves exclusively for His satisfaction so He will become easily and swiftly attained by His desire. Let thy manas or mind and buddhim or spiritual intelligence be fully reposed in the Supreme Lord remembering Him always and let thy heart be full of bhakti or exclusive loving devotion for Him. Thus when the mind has been trained and disciplined and the heart has been infused with divine love then urdhvam meaning after this life, one will reside with Him eternally in the spiritual worlds. Lord Krishna emphasises this as reality with the words na samsayah meaning without a doubt..

“My dear Arjuna, O winner of wealth, if you cannot fix your mind upon Me without deviation, then follow the regulative principles of bhakti-yoga. In this way develop a desire to attain Me.”

Dhananjaya =Arjuna! -danam jeyathivaney-Mayi = in Me [Sri Krishna], sthiram =vuruthiyaaha- determined, chittam = mind, samadhatum = involvement, atha = if, na saknosi = not possible [by Arjuna].

 Ramanuja’s Commentary ..If one is unable to focus their mind steadily on the Supreme Lord Krishna without distraction and interruption then one should continuously endeavour to perform abhyasa yoga which is repeatedly fixing the mind on the Supreme Lord while simultaneously restraining oneself from all worldly affairs. Reflecting on Lord Krishna being the quintessence of all wonderful qualities and exalted attributes such as love, beauty, compassion, sweetness, wisdom, majesty, courage, valour, etc. while realising that He alone is the Supreme Lord of the spiritual kingdom and the material worlds being the ultimate source and the ultimate goal of all things at the same time being the antithesis and antidote of all that is demoniac and unrighteous. True endeavour for the Supreme Lord is bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to Lord Krishna. By remembering and meditating constantly on Him in this way, steadiness and equanimity of mind is achieved and one will directly realise themselves how to attain Him. 

Prapathi

Sri:vaishnava poorva:cha:rya:s feel “bhagavath pravruthi virodhi swapravruthi nivruthi prapatti”… One amongst the famous six commandments that Sri Deva:dira:jan gave Tiru kachi nambigal is “mo:ksho:pa:yah prapattih.. Again Swa:mi Pillailoka:cha:rya’s soothram in Sri: Vachanabhooshanam says, “prapatti upa;yathukku ikkutrangal ondrumillai”, for which Swa:mi Manava:la Ma:munigal says, “ikkutrangal ondru millai yengaya:le: matro:ru kutramundu yennumidam tho:trugiradhu, adha:vadhu a:pa:dha pradheethiyile: upa:yatva prathipathikku arhama:mpadi irukkai”.

 A:zha:rs say, “un manatha:l en ninaithirundha:i?” and the soothram based on this verse is the reply we get from our poorvAcha:rya:s, “un manatha”l en ninaithirundha:i? engirapadiye: pra:pthikku upa:yam avan ninaivu”.
