The reason for my being able to sing in praise of Sri Ramanuja like these verses of NooRRanthAthi, is only due to Emperumaanaar’s limitless compassion on this lowly self through the merciful KooratthAzhwAn’s blessing me by taking me as his [KooratthAzhwAn’s] sishya and thus EmperumAnAr placed His lotus feet on my head.

விளக்கவுரை :

“இருள் தரு மா ஞாலம்” என்று கூறப்படும் இந்த உலகத்தில் ஒரு பொருட்டாகவே கருத இயலாதபடி நான் இருந்தேன். அப்படிப்பட்ட என்னை ப்ரஹ்மவித்துக்களில் உயர்ந்தவனாகவும், சிறந்த வஸ்து என்று அனைவரும் கூறும்படியாகவும் எம்பெருமானார் மாற்றினார். எனது அறியாமை காரணமாகப் பல காலமாகவும், இந்தப் பிறவியிலும் எண்ணற்ற பாவங்கள் சேர்ந்தன. அந்தக் கர்மவினைகளை முற்றிலுமாக வேருடன் அழித்தார். அனைத்துக் காலங்களிலும் நிலையாக நிற்கும் ஸர்வேச்வரனை மட்டுமே அனைவரும் உணர்ந்து கொண்டு வணங்கும்படியும், மற்ற தேவதைகளின் தொடர்பு நீங்கும்படியும் செய்தார். அனைவரும் விரும்பி அனுபவிக்கும்படியாக ஸ்ரீபாஷ்யமும் கீதாபாஷ்யமும் அருளிச்செய்த எம்பெருமானார், தனது தாமரைமலர் போன்ற திருவடிகளை என் தலை மீது வைத்து அருளவும் செய்தார். இத்தனைக்கும் பிறகு என்னிடம் குறை என்பது என்ன இருக்கப் போகிறது?

Meaning

Emperumaanaar, made even me, the lowly, unworthy one, as an object of worthiness on this earth. How? He plucked the roots of all my karmic diseases, that have grown huge and tremendous over the ages due to my a~jnAnam (wrong knowledge or no knowledge); He destroyed the ahankaara, mamakaaram [I and mine]; He taught me through upadesa [through KooratthAzhwAn] about the glories and kalyANa guNAs of the Lord. Also, he ordered me utter and praise loudly the greatest kalyANa guNAs of the Primordial Chief, Padmanabhan, the Lord even during Cosmic cycle, who alone exists at that time with all other jeeva raasis in his stomach;. Such Greatest Emperumaanaar Sri Ramanujacharya who iseven grander than this Primordial Chief as He has saved this lowly self; He has placed His Lotus Feet on my head permanently and made me so blessed; I am indeed fortunate. Hence, there is neither grievance nor an end for me anymore.

SRI UTTAMUR SWAMI’S COMMENTS:

The One who took refuge at the lotus feet of Periya Nambhi [MahapoorNar] reverently addressed Alavandhaar Sri YamunAchArya as yathpadhAmburuha DhyAna viDhvasthASEshakalmasha: and meditated on Swami Alavandhaar and was blessed to receive his benign blessings and says: he thus became a vasthu due to his [Alavandhar’s grace].

Similarly, I took refuge at the feet of Swami KooratthAzhwAn; and thus am now blessed to praise Swami Emperumaanaar who made me a vasthu [an object of worthiness]. So, through AzhwAn and through himself, he got me rid of my karmic diseases from its root, and crushed my ahankara. He blessed me to become the ardent devotee of Lord RanganthAn alone with the strength of his upadesa. He has placed his lotus feet on my head and changed my lalaata lipi [the fate lines on my forehead- thalai yezhutthu].

Hereinafter, only good will happens. I can compose the verses effortlessly. Swamy Desikan says: Paadhukas have touched my head and thus composing Paadhuka sahasram has become effortless for me.
