Ramanuja Nutranthathi- 63


Share post:


வேதங்களை மறுக்கும் ஆறு மதங்களைப் பின்பற்றுபவர்கள், அந்த முள் நிறைந்த செடிகளை அண்டி இருப்பவர்கள் கண்டவுடன் பயந்து ஓடும்படியா, இந்தப் பூமியில் பரமபதத்திலிருந்து வந்து திருஅவதாரம் செய்த எம்பெருமானாரே! (ஆறு என்ற பதம் மூலம் – ஆட்டின் தலையை வெட்டிப் பலி கொடுத்தல், முள் நிறைந்த காட்டில் பஞ்ச அக்னி எழுப்பி கோரமான தவம் புரிதல், பாஷாண்டி வேடம் பூண்டபடி இருத்தல் முதலானவற்றையும் கூறுவதாகக் கொள்ளலாம்). உடையவரே! உம்முடைய ஞானம் எத்தகையது! எனக்கு ஒரு விண்ணப்பம் உள்ளது. அது என்னவென்றால் – பெண் யானையைத் தொடரும் ஆண் யானையைப் போன்று, இத்தனை ஆண்டுகளாக நான் உலகவிஷயங்களின் பின் மட்டுமே சென்றபடி இருந்தேன். இவ்விதம் திரிந்த நான் இனி வரும் காலங்களில், இந்த உலகம் முழுவதும் நிரம்பிய புகழ் கொண்ட உன்னுடைய திருவடிகளை மட்டுமே, ஒருபோதும் நழுவாமல் அண்டி நிற்கவேண்டும். இப்படிப்பட்ட குணத்தை நீவிர் எனக்கு அருள வேண்டும்.

Amudhanaar explains his desire to be associated always with and be at the lotus feet of Sri Ramanujacharya.


The religions that have been filled with distorted facts and illusory phenomena have been taken up by those who are now being chased away with thundering logic and Vedic proof by Sri Ramanuja. He is here in this world to preach and advise against such pitfalls. He wanders everywhere looking for people and act accordingly to let them comprehend his philosophy

Such Great Most compassionate RamanujA! The One with unlimited jnAnam! Please bless me with the mentality and strength to enable me to hold and follow Your Glorious Lotus Feet at all times!

aRu samaya sediyai– the plants of six religions
thodarum maruL– the darkness engulfing and continuing because of [them]
seRindhOr– those who have had such darkness [following those religions]
sidhaindhu Odi– for them to run away with shame and fear vandhu- [He] came here and took this avathAram
e padiyai thodarum iraamaanusa mikka paNdithanE– Oh Greatest scholar! Ramanuja! The one who continues this task [of conquering other religions] on this earth!
Pidiyai thodarum kaLiRu enna– Like the female elephant following faithfully the male elephant in full faith Yaan un- I [to you]
piRangiya seer adiyai thodarumpadi nalga vaeNdum– Please bless me to hold onto the resplendent and shining lotus feet [of yours]

AzhwArs with extreme devotion to the Lord assumed themselves as the nAyaki and the Lord as Purusha [as He is the only PurushOtthaman]. In Naayaki bhAvam, they were in love with the Lord and wanted to unite with Him. On similar lines, Amudhaar longs for holding onto the feet of Acharya like a female elephant holding onto the male elephant. The desire and love shall be only for Him- says Amudhanaar. He prays to Ramanuja for blessing him the same. Like the female elephant that never ever leaves the hold, I would like to
hold onto.

aRu samaya– the six religions that were chased away by the greatest scholar Ramanujacharya.. – Here we are reminded of Swami Desikan’s YathirAja
sapthathi– paryAptham paryaChaisham … … yatheendra … thaneeya: [69th verse]

We have studied Vaisheshika to satisfaction. We have learnt Nyaya. We have got filled with Meemaamasam as well. We have mastered Saankhya and Yoga. However, all this being so, what have we to learn from people who have been roaring aloud in the dense forests of false paths, blinded by the night of nescience, when these systems have been totally demolished by Ramanuja (in his works, like Sri Bhashyam)?
