Dearest Sisters and Brothers,
AzhwAr pleaded Emperumaan to get him rid of the worldly life to attain 
Emperumaan. It did not happen. AzhwAr loses himself and gets into Parakala 
nAyaki bhAvam, when she has already had experience of uniting with the Lord 
and the Lord has now deserted her. Due to her suffering, she is not able to 
express herself and the “mother” of Parakala nAyaki speaks.

1. “moovaril mun mudhalvan; - He is the first and Primordial Chief among the 
trio; He is the One who reclines on Milky Ocean; the One who creates 
(through four faced Brahma), the Universe from his naabhi kamalam (lotus 
from His navel); who has protected the Universe by retaining it in His 
stomach during the end of Cosmic Cycle and brings out during shrushti; He is 
the Chief of Nithya sooris; He is the Lord of ThirumalirunchOlai; the head 
of cowherd group by name Govindhan; - Is my creeper like waisted beautiful 
girl able to bear being deserted (by Him) after being hugged by such 
greatest Emperumaan?

2. “moovulagum padaittha mudhal moorthi thannai”- He is The Lord of 
Thiruvarangam, full of tall punnai trees, and dense beautiful gardens, and 
surrounded by the cool waters of Cauveri river; the first, primordial Chief 
who created all three worlds; He resides here most gracefully at 
ThirumaalirunchOlai; This place (sthalam), is surrounded by beautiful 
gardens. Is my darting, fish like eyed beautiful girl, able to bear being 
left out after being blessed to see His Divine Form?

kaN thuyil koNdu ugandha karumaaNikka malaiyai”-
During maha praLayam (Cosmic cycle end), the Emperumaan, ate the entire 
Universe and retained in His stomach, reclined on a little banyan leaf, 
enjoyed having His Yoga nithrA, as little infant, who is also of the black 
hued emerald mountain like beautiful huge Divine Form;- He is the One who is 
here at ThirumaalirunchOlai, where strong big elephants live in. This Lord 
is the king of everyone and everything in this Universe. Is my girl, adorned

ThirumaalirunchOlai, where the tall mountains appear to touch the clouds and 
the moon; Such sowlabhyan – Is my girl (who has beautiful forehead) not

by honey dripping flower filled beautiful, dense gardens. He is the Chief of 
even nithya sooris; - Is my girl not qualified to see Him and pay her 
obeisance (prostrating at his Feet)?

6. nEsam illadhavarkkum ninaiyaadhavarkkum ariyaan- Those who have not love 
for Him; no bhakti for Him and do not think of Him- he is simply 
incomprehensible and can not be attained easily at all; He appeared for 
everyone (blessed) to see at MathurA, as Kutti KaNNan.  He is here now at 
ThirumaalirunchOlai (for us -blessed), for everyone to pay their obeisance. 
He is Kesavan, ParipoorNan with all most auspicious attributes (samastha
