Meaning and Comments:
At KaancI, the boon granting Lord (Varadan) is present on top of Hasti Giri. He is the Lord of all the celestials (devAtirAjan). SrI VaradarAjan was very pleased with the grand yaj~nams performed at His kshetram by SrI SrInivAsAdhvari dIkshitar and addressed the dIkshitar as “appaya”. That SrI SrInivAsAdhvari is the kUTasthar (mUla Purushar) for all descendants of atri vamSam. Lord VaradarAjan addressed Sri SrInivAsAdhvari as appayya just as He addressed SrI NaDAtUr ammAn with great affection as “ammAL”.
