This shlokam covers the scene, where VarAhappirAn lifts His PirAtti and places Her on the throne of His powerful shoulder. This occasion reminds Swamy Desikan of a coronation scene where BhUmi PirAtti enjoys Thirumanjanam from the PraLayam waters and thereafter is placed on the throne of the shoulders by Her Lord.


Oh BhUmi PirAtti! During the coronation of a powerful king, it is customary to play different MangaLa Vaadhyams, place him on the royal throne and bathe him in the waters of the ocean. After that PattAbhishEkam, the King observes Raaja dharmam, gladdens the heart of his subjects and rules his kingdom under a single white umbrella.

Oh BhUmi Devi! You are yEka chakravarthini (undisputed Empress) for this whole world. During Your coronation, the ocean and the waves served as the MangaLa Vaadhyams. The entire body of the deluge water became the sacred water for Your Thirumanjanam. The tall shoulder of Your Lord served as the royal throne for You. Your auspicious attributes became Your dutiful counsellors. You ruled over the Universe with their help and gladdened the heart of Your devotees, while You stayed under the shade of the single white umbrella befitting your status as the undisputed Empress of the world.
