Title :- Aranganai Kanda Kangal
-------------------------------

Adiyen first seek the blessings of our Aazhwaars, Aachaaryaas 
and learned scholars in the list to accept this kainkaryam through 
adiyen's words in this posting. Adiyen also seeks the anughraham of 
U.Ve. Velukkudi Swamy as this posting titled "Arangani Kaana Nam 
Paananidam KarpOm" is a translation of his upanyaasam under the  
title "Aranganai Kanda Kangal", with adiyen's very little anubhavam 
after hearing swamy's upanyaasam. If adiyen has scribbled anything 
wrong in this posting, it is purely because of adiyen's mandha budhi 
or ignorance and purely without sampradaic knowledge. 

Hence adiyen fall at the feet of all mahaanubhaavas, learned scholars 
and bhaagavthaas to pradon adiyen for any mistakes, 
misinterpretations or for any apachaaram adiyen is committing
knowingly or unknowingly by introducing adiyen's anubhavam too in 
this topic of excellence. By the grace and anughrahams of all 
aazhwaars, aachaaryaas, learned scholars and emperumaan adiyen
bhaagavtha daasan proceed now to scribble whatever that comes to 
adiyen's mind.

Sarvam Sri Krishnaarpanamasthu,

Introduction :-

Paancha raathra aagamam mentions that emperumaan Sriya: pathi Sriman 
Naaraayanan has five different states of manifesting himself in this 
universe. He is the one and only creator, protector destroyer
but he carries out these taks in various forms as Brahmaa, himself 
and Shiva for Srishti, Sthithi and Samhaaram. The following are the 
five different states of emperumaan :-

1. Para    - As Vaikunta Pathi or Para Vaasudevan in Sri Vaikuntam 
             with his divine consorts and his nithya sooris namely   
             Anantha, Vishwaksena, Garudaa and others.

2. Vyooham - As Ksheeraabdhi naathan with Aadhi Sesha Sayanam in 
	     Yoga Nidhrai at the ocean of Ksheeram or milk with 
             Sridevi at his lotus feet doing paada sevai, who is 
             responsible for Srushti, Sthithi, Samhaaram

3. Vibhavam - As vibhavaavathaaram like Mathsya, Koorma, Varaaha, 
              Narasimha, Vaamana, Parasuraama, Raama, Balaraama, 
  	      Krishana, Kalki
 

The following paasuram refers to this Vibhavaavathaaram :-

"Meenodu Aamai kezhal ari, kuralaai, muunum iraamanaai, thaanaai,
 pinnum iraamanaai dhaamodharanaai karkiyum aanaan "

Meenodu - (Mathsya), Aamai -  (Koorma), Kezhal - (Varaaham), 
Ari - (Narasimham), Kuralaai (Vaamanam), Munnum Iraamanaai 
(Parasu Raman), Thaanaai (Rama), Pinnum Iramanaai (Bala Raman), 
Dhaamodharanaai (Krishnan), Karkiyum Aanaan (Kalki)

Here "Thaanai" means Lord Rama. Even though Lord has born as a 
normal manushyaa but still manifested all the divine qualities of 
the supreme being aazhwaars considers him as the supreme being 
itself and hence he uses the word "Thaanaai". This quote was 
explained by U.Ve. Velukkudi Swamy in his Upanyasam under the 
title "Aazhwaargalum Chakravarthi Thirumaganum" during his recent 
visit to the United States.

Thus the lord came down to the earth as 10 diffrent manifestation 
to save us from this ocean of samsaara but still he felt that he 
couldn't attain his objective.

4. Antharyaamitvam - Emperumaan dwells into everyone as antharyaami 
		     and does nithysvaasam at the centre of our 
		     heart which can be realized only doing ashtaanga 
		     yogam which one of the 32 Brahma kalai or called 
                     as Brahmaviddhais. He sits in a lotus at the  
                     centre of our heart with his divya mangala 
                     swaroopam which was realized by our saints or 
                     rishis by doing bhakthi yogam and by our 
                     aazhwaars and aachaaryaas. 		
		  
Thirumazhisai aazhwaar even requested emperumaan to show his from
in his hridayam or heart to all those people who argues against 
existence of emperumaan and emperumaan gave that diva sevai to 
everyone in the centre of Thirumazhisai Aazhwaars heart

5. Archaavathaaram - This is a state which we all can feel,  
                     experience, enjoy in our divya desam with his 
                     divya thirumeni and does kataaksham to all those 
                     who surrender at his feet doing Saranaagathai.
