Sri:

Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

AzhwAr said, “ThirukkaNNapuram is Parama praapyam” Now he enjoys saying that 
one can enjoy all His avtaar anubhavams which we had not enjoyed during His 
appearance, now at this sthalam of ThirukkaNNapuram.

1.	When the ocean grew huge to such an extent to immerse even the Deva lOkms 
and others, Emperumaan took Mathsyam (fish) avtaar and saved the beings and 
the worlds. He has the cool, dark eyes. He is the one who appeared as KaNNan 
with such a sowlabhyam as a cowherd Boy. Such greatest sowlabhyan- 
Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed 
seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

2.	Even the huge large fishes get scared and falters at the depths of this 
milky ocean; when it was churned Emperumaan, the most merciful Lord placed 
at the center of this deep ocean, the huge manthara mountain; Not only that. 
He took the huge Tortoise (Koormam) avtaar and carried the huge manthara 
mountain on His back till the amudham (nectar) was extracted from churning 
process. (Perhaps, he likes butter for having seen the churning process)  
This aaccharya bhoothan- the most wonderful Lord - Such greatest Emperumaan, 
adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him 
at ThirukkaNNapuram.,

3.	When the BhUmi PiraaTTi was in troubled waters, in depths of waters, 
Emperumaan took the huge Varaaha Moorthy, (Boar) and on His bent horns, 
brought back the Mother. So strongest is He. Such greatest Emperumaan, 
adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him 
at ThirukkaNNapuram.

4.	Lord took the huge ferocious Lion faced Narasinga roopam, malking 
everyone get scared and run away with fear. He appeared from the pillar and 
tore open the strong chest of hiraNayan, the terror of Devas, and killed him 
with His sharp, bent nails. Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- 
eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

5.	He took the small simple, Brahmin Boy form as Vaamanan, and obtained the 
entire Universe from Bhali. He has no change in Him and is always the Chief 
and Youthful. Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- 
is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

6.	He appeared as Parasuraman, having His sharp axe as the weapon, killing 
the twenty-one generations of kings when the raja needhi started decaying. 
Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- is blessed to 
have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

7.	He is the One who appeared as Lord Raman, the unparalleled One, and was 
worshipped by everyone in all worlds. He is the Chief of all, why to talk of 
His equal..?. He fought angrily at lankA and made all families of asurAs run 
away shivering with fear. Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- 
eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

8.	Lord appeared as Balaraman, with a shining ear stud in His ears, and the 
sharp plough in His Hand. He had victory as His very nature. Such most 
victorious Lord made many kings attain the Veera swargam in the battle 
filed. Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- eternal servant- is 
blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

9.	Emperumaan made the BhUmi PiraaTTi (one who has red bimbha fruit like 
mouth) happy by reducing and removing her burden by killing the kings in 
KusukshEthra field. For that, He appeared in the dark night of Krishna 
ashtami as Kutti KaNNan. Such greatest Emperumaan, adiyEn- His sEshan- 
eternal servant- is blessed to have enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNNapuram.

10.	Mathsyam, Koormam, Varaaham, Narasimham, Vaamanan, First Raman (Parasu), 
Raman, and latter Raman (Balaraman), KaNNan and then Kalki avtaar. He took 
all these avatars only for saving us and is here at ThirukkaNNapuram to 
enable all of us reach Him with such ease. This daasa bhUthan Kaliyan went 
and enjoyed seeing Him at ThirukkaNnapuram, composes this ten. Those who 
read this nectar like ten, will have no sins stay with them at all.
