Thiruvaaimozhi 5.6- I AM EVERYTHING and EVERTHING IS IN ME;

From: Madhavakkannan V (
Date: Thu Apr 23 1998 - 21:36:03 PDT


Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

AzhwAr after explaining nicely about Thirukkurungudi Nambhi’s exquisite 
beauty, still finds himself at the disappointing end. Gopis, while 
anxiously waiting for KaNNan considered themselves as KaNNan and uttered 
words to that effect. Here AzhwAr too, as Parangusha nayaki, gets into 
the same anubahavam and utters statements as if Emperumaan Himself 
speaks through "Parangusha nayaki". THIS IS MOST EXCELLENT SET OF VERSES 
AzhwAr narrates the Most Divine, incomprehensible, most exhaustive 
Qualities and Most auspicious attributes of Emperumaan after narrating 
the Beauty of Vigraham of Thirukkurungudi Nambhi.   

AzhwAr’s mother is totally perplexed at the most philosophical and 
content of her daughter’s statements. She is not able to realise that it 
is due to her pangs of separation from the Lord that has made her speak 
like this. On the other hand, She wonders if Emperumaan has entered into 
her body. These ten pAsurams are sung as if they are spoken by Parangusa 
Nayaki’s mother.  (dearest sisters and brothers, Read them. If you have 
no time, allocate some time in the near future and come back to 
positively read for its beauty. They are simply wonderful.) Again, I can 
not resist writing the transliterated version for its richness in 
playing of words and literary niceties, in addition to the marvellous 
philosophy. Sorry for making the post longer than usual.  

1. `katalNYaalam seythEnum yaanE' ennum/`katalNYaalam aavEnum yaanE' 
`katalNYaalam koNtEnum yaanE' ennum/`katalNYaalam keeNtEnum yaanE' 
`katalNYaalam muNtEnum yaanE' ennum/katalNYaalath theesanvanN thERak 
katalNYaa laththeerk kivaiyen sollugEn/katalNYaa laththen magaLkaR 
My daughter says: "I am the One who created the world surrounded by the 
oceans; I am the One who is the World itself; I am the One who measured 
this world; I am the same One who protected this world by bringing it 
out during Varaaha avathaaram. I am the One who ate the universe during 
Cosmic cycle end retained it in my stomach". She talks like that. 
Listening to her such statements, it appears Emperumaan has entered into 
Her body. She is talking like NityasUris, while living in this world of 
samsaaram. What should I tell you, Guys?

2. `kaRkumkal vikkellai yilanE' ennum/`kaRkumkalvi yaavEnum yaanE' 
`kaRkumkalvi seyvEnum yaanE' ennum/`kaRkumkalvi theerppEnum yaanE' 
`kaRkumkalvich chaaramum yaanE' ennum/kaRkumkalvi naathanvan thERak 
kaRkum kalviyeerk kivaiyen sollugEn/kaRkum kalviyen magaLkaaN kinRanavE?	
My girl says: "I am NOT bounded by the education that is learnt;(means, 
I am beyond learning). I am that education itself; I am the One who 
makes education that is learnt and also the One who clarifies doubts and 
establishes the Truth in Education; (means, the teachers and the taught 
are all my puppets only). I am the essence of education" Like that she 
has been uttering. Has Emperumaan entered into her? When you all are 
attempting to step into the first step towards the (Spiritual) 
education, How can I describe the one she utters? (She is capable of 
only repeating what is told; But, now today, she utters such highly 
philosophical statements- what shall I say?)   

3. `kaaNkinRa nilamellaam yaanE' ennum/`kaaNkinRa visumpellaam yaanE' 
`kaaNkinRa vendheeyellaam yaanE' ennum/`kaaNginRa ikkaaRRellaam yaanE' 
`kaaNkinRa katalellaam yaanE' ennum/kaaNkinRa katalvaNNa NnERak kolO?
kaaNkinRa vulagath theerkken sollugEn/kaaNkinRa veNnkaa rigaisey 
My daughter tells: "The land that is seen everywhere is me; the sky, the 
red fire, the air, the Oceans, etc., - everything is me;- Seeing this 
speech of hers, it makes me feel that Emperumaan is using her as an 
instrument by getting into her and speak all these. How to tell all that 
she says , oh people!  

4. seykinRa kithiyellaam yaanE' ennum/'seyvaanin RanakaLum yaanE' ennum,
'seythumun NniRandhanavum yaanE' ennum/'seygaippaya NnuNpEnum yaanE' 
'seyvaargaLaich cheyvEnum yaanE' ennum/seyyakama lakKaNNa NnERak kolO?
seyyavula kaththeerk kivaiyen sollugEn/seyya kanivaa yiLamaan 
My darling says: "The actions that are performed in all past, present 
and the future is all done by me" she also says: "I am enjoying all 
fruits of all actions, while the karmA, that is performed and the 
karthA(the doer) are all under my control". She says "I am the one 
creating the doers of these karmAs;" Listening to her such speeches, I 
feel that The Red Lotus eyed Lord Emperumaan has entered into her speak 
like this. Oh Guys, who keep asking about my daughter, what to tell you 
and How?

5. `thiRampaamal maNkaakkinREn yaanE' ennum/`thiRampaamal malaiyeduth 
thEnE' ennum,
`thiRampaamal asuraraikkon REnE' ennum/`thiRangaatti yanRaivaraik 
kaaththEnE' ennum,
`thiRampaamal katalkatainN thEnE' ennum/thiRampaatha katalvaNNa NnERak 
thiRampaatha vulagath theerkken sollugEn/thiRampaa theNndhiru magaLey 
My daughter says :Without making even a small injustice to any one or 
anything whatsoever, with no support, I protect the entire universe. I 
am the One who lifted the GovardhanaGiri effortlessly and stayed put for 
seven days and nights." She talks as if She is Govindhan. "I killed 
asurAs; I have saved Pancha Paandavaas in the battle with my smart 
moves; I churned ThiruupaaRkadal (Milk ocean)" Like that she keeps 
saying; Looks like Emperumaan has definitely entered into her. What to 
tell you, folks, (who are standing in the bank about this girl, who is 
deep down in the waters, about her experience of bliss in the water- you 
will not understand-interprets nampiLLai.)  

6. `inavEymalai yEndhinEn yaanE' ennum/`inavERugaL seRREnum yaanE' 
`inavaaNnkanRu mEyththEnum yaanE' ennum/`inavaanNirai kaaththEnum yaanE' 
`inavaayar thalaivanum yaanE' ennum/inaththEvar thalaivanvanN thERak 
inavERkaN nalleerk kivaiyen sollugEn/inavER kaNNi yenmaga LuRRanavE?	
My girl says, " I am the One who lifted the Big, Huge Govardhana 
mountain most effortlessly; I am the one who killed the seven oxen; I am 
the Cowherd boy, who took the groups and groups of cattle which were 
much bigger than me in size; I was the Chief of all cowherd folks;" 
Listening to all these, it appears the Chief of NityasUris, has 
definitely entered into this girl. What shall I talk to you about this 
most beautiful eyed girl of mine?  

7. `uRRaarga Lenakkillai yaarum' ennum/`uRRaarga Lenakkingel laarum' 
`uRRaargaLaich cheyvEnum yaanE' ennum/`uRRaargaLai azhippEnum yaanE' 
`uRRaargaLuk kuRREnum yaanE' ennum/uRRaarili maayan vandhERak kolO?,
uRReergat kensollich chollu gEnyaan/uRRen NnutaippE dhaiyuraik 
My daughter utters sentences like "I have no relations; and at the same 
time even though there is no relation who knows me fully, There is 
ABSOLUTELY NONE who CAN NOT be thought of as my relation; All are my 
relations;" She also says: "After creating the relations, I am the One 
who offers them whatever they need for their sustenance by standing 
within them (as antharyaami); and at the end, I am the one who removes 
their belongings and shackles and free them; Those who hold me as the 
only fruit, I am offering myself as everything to them; I am "Most 
incomprehensible One" even by the Most knowledgeable people; I AM THE 
kataaksham);" She talks all such statments; What and How shall I explain 
them to you? (AzhWar narrates in this pAsuram, how Emperumaan saves all 
of us, by His mercy on us)   

8. `uraikkinRa mukkatpiraan yaanE' ennum/`uraikkinRa thisaimugan yaanE' 
`uraikkinRa amararum yaanE' ennum/`uraikkinRa amarar kOn yaanE' ennum,
`uraikkinRa munivarum yaanE' ennum/uraikkinRa mugilvaNNa NnERak kolO?,
uraikkinRa ulagath theerkken sollugEn/uraikkinRa veNnkO maLavoN kotikkE?	
My daughter tells: "I am the Sivan, who is talked about in puraaNaas; 
(Sivan is reported to be a part of Emperumaan’s body). I am the 
Naanmukhan, the four faced BrahmA; I am the DevAs; I am their Chief, 
IndrA, too; I am the Rishis, the ones, who recite vEdAs;" I think only 
Emperumaan, the Blue hued Cloud coloured Lord, has entered into her body 
and spoken all these statements; What can I tell you, folks, who have 
been enquiring so much about the status of my daughter, the Most 
beautiful Creeper (kOmaLakkodi).   

9. `kotiya vinaiyaathu milanE' ennum/`kotiyavinai yaavEnum yaanE' ennum,
`kotiyavinai seyvEnum yaanE' ennum/`kotiyavinai theerppEnum yaanE' 
`kotiyaa NnilangaicheR REnE' ennum/kotiyapuL Lutaiyava NnERak kolO?,
kotiya vulagaththeerk kivaiyen sollugEn/kotiyEn kotiyen magaLkO langaLE?	
My daughter says: "I am not bounded by karmAs and am unlike all others, 
who are bounded by their karmAs; There is nokarmA for me; (KarmAs and 
sorrows that I come across during avataars are all willingly undertaken 
by me and I am never bounded by that). Even the cruel karmAs and 
samsaaric afflictions are all under my control; I am the One who enables 
jIvAthmAs undergo their karmic diseases; I am the One who removes their 
"vinaippayan" too, the puNyams and paapams from the past karmAs of my 
devotees and those who have surrendered to my feet; I am the One who 
killed rAvaNA!"- Like that she spakes! Can you imagine that my darling 
daughter speaking all such statements? It is done by Emperumaan, who 
must have entered into her; What else to say?   

10. `kOlangoL suvarggamum yaanE' ennum/`kOlamil naragamum yaanE' ennum,
`kOlamthigazh mOkkamum yaanE' ennum/`kOlango LuyirgaLum yaanE' ennum,
`kOlangoL thanimuthal yaanE' ennum/kOlangoL mugilvaNNa NnERak kolO?
kOlango Lulagath theerkken sollugEn/kOlanN thigazhkO dhaiyeNnkoonN 
She says: "I am the beautiful heaven and also the cruel hell; I am the 
Parama Padham itself; I am the Cause, the Primordial Chief for all of 
these;"- the way she keeps on saying such statements, woith so much 
conviction and assurances, it is very much certain that Emperumaan is 
making her speak; (in this pAsuram, for "kOlam koL thanimudhal naanE",  
nampiLLai says 1. I am the cause and essence of beings, and non-beings, 
2. It is Emperumaan’s sankhalpa rUpa jnAnam and 3. I am the SarvEshwaran 
, a combination of the cause and essence of all beings, possess the 
sankhalpa rUpa jnAnam and the most auspicious kalyANa guNAs;)     
11. koondhalmalar mangaikkum maNmatanN thaikkum/kulavaayar kozhundhukkum

Periya Piraati and BhUmi piraatti, the Ones, who wear the most fragrant 
flowers in Their hairs, and the Most Beautiful Nappinnai Piraatti- Their 
Naathan, Their Chief, SarvEshwaran, Sriman NarayaNan- about Him, in 
praise of Him, Sri SadagOpar has sung these 1000 pAsurams of superb, 
faultless quality, and performed eternal Great kaimkaryam to the Lord. 
Out of those 1000, readers of these ten, WILL BE BLESSED WITH THE MOST 
NARAYANA’S BHAKTHAS. (means we will do all that thrills and excites SrI 
vaishNavAs; The most unbounded wealth, we will get, means we will be 
blessed with SrI VaishNavam, which is the Most unbounded treasure)
