கடல் சூழ்ந்த எட்டுத் திசைகளும் கொண்ட இந்தப் பூமி முழுவதும், கலி புருஷன் தனது ஸ்வபாவம் மூலம் உலகில் உள்ள அனைவருக்கும் அஜ்ஞானம் என்ற இருளை உண்டாக்கினான். இதனால் தர்ம மார்க்கத்தை யாரும் எளிதில் காணாதபடி செய்தான். இப்படிப்பட்ட சூழ்நிலையில் பரமபதத்தில் இருந்து இந்த உலகில் எம்பெருமானார் திருஅவதாரம் செய்தார். ஸர்வேச்வரனின் ஸ்வரூபம் மற்றும் ரூபங்கள் அனைத்தையும் உள்ளடக்கிய நான்கு வேதங்கள் என்ற கொழுந்து விட்டு எரியும் ஒளி கொண்டு, கலிபுருஷனால் உண்டாக்கப்பட்ட அஜ்ஞானம் என்னும் இருளை நீக்கினார். இவ்விதமாக எம்பெருமானார் செய்யவில்லை என்றால் என்ன நிகழ்ந்திருக்கும்? இந்த உலகில் உள்ள அனைத்து உயிர்களுக்கும் எஜமானனாக நாராயணனே உள்ளான் என்று மிகவும் தெளிவாக ஆராய்ந்து அறிபவர்கள் யாரும் இல்லை என்ற அவலநிலை உண்டாகியிருக்கும்.
Such wrong interpretations and misinterpretations of other religions, if EmperumAnAr did not crush, the kaliyuga influence would not ended at all. This was only the beginning of Kali yuga. And within that time, the other religions attempted to engulf the world and the influence of Kali began in full force. Avaidika, non-vedic religions prospered. The vedic scholars did not join and rejected avaidika religions. This illusory religion had the Vedas and Upanishads as the camouflage and declared that there are no jeevathmas, no worlds; no matter; There is nothing in the world. And it was almost close to Bowddha matham which also said everything is soonyam. Vedas are pramaaNams [proof] – they said; but the same proved and considered other vedic statements are wrong and are contradicting and hence need to be rejected. How can the PramaaNam be violating its own statements! Fell under the influence of their “camouflage” of Vedic proof, even the Asthikas followed them. Amudhanaar feels bad for them and is happy that Ramanuja has removed their hurdles and saved them.
When the whole world, surrounded by oceans was engulfed by the darkness of Kalipurushan, Sri Ramanuja appeared and with the shining light of praamaaNams (proofs) from four Vedas, dispelled the darkness immediately. Had he not done that, the world would not have known the truth (of Sarva sEshithvam of Sriman Narayanan for all jIvAthmAs).
Kadal aLavu aaya dhisai yettinum- in all eight directions, engulfing everywhere
kaliyiruLE- the darkness of ignorance in Kaliyuga
midaitharu kaalatthu – grew and during those times
Iraamanusan- EmperumAnAr Ramanujacharya
mikka naan maRaiyin- the four Vedas that clearly mention the chith, achith and Iswara tattvams crystal clear
sudar oLiyaal- with the luster of knowledge [that can not cause even an iota of disbelief or lack of understanding] a iruLai- that darkness of anjnAnam [ignorance or wrong knowledge]
thuratthilE yEn- had that not been removed or chased
uyirai udai yevan- Jeevas are unique and different from each other; He is their Sarva Swami.
NaaraNan- Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan
enRu uRRu uNarndhu aRivaar illai- Thus [Iraamaanusan] interpreted the above tattvam and words [in Vedas] clearly and blessed us with right meanings- There is no one like that who has understood [like Ramanuja]
Sriman Narayanan resides in the jeevathmas, manifested in them. He is their AthmA; ParamathmA. EmperumAnAr could understand the same clearly as he is the aathmA for the Lord himself. KrishNA himself declares that jnAni thvAthmaiva mE matham. . Had Ramanuja been not there, Jeevathmas are different; Paramathma is different; Jeevathmas are sEsha bhoothars of The Lord Sriman Narayanan. Jeevathmas are unqiue and different from each other- would all be unheard of. That jnAnam would have perished. Even some understand that they would be misled to believe that Sivan or Rudhran is the Supreme One and Not Sriman Narayanan.
Here, it is enjoyable to refer to

Meaning: This world suffers from the darkness of ignorance. Had only Ramanuja, the lamp, (that burns with the oil of love for God), not been there, how would people- intrinsically faultless, avoid, even if they want, the darkness of conceit and the baseless arguments, indulged in by vile speakers of contesting systems, who can be likened, for their effect, to snakes.
