May be the following :

>mumukshubhistu jijnAsyam mAlOlam sarvakAraNam		I
>SAstraih: eva hi samvEdyam dayAsaragam AshrayE      	II

can be interpreted as:

By studying the vEdAs alone (please note that here shrI mukkUr swAmy, may
actually imply the divine texts not limited to the 4 vEdAs), along with the
realization that shrI mAlOlan is indeed the controller of all that is, was
and to be, i.e., "sarvakAraNam", and such a stage of purity in thought, does
one attain the power of discrimination to recognise that action and
realization, qualifies you as a "mumukshu" so you may attain the Lotus Feet
of the Lord along with his Consort in Shri Vaikuntham.
