Dear SrIman Ram Kumar:

Few days ago , you had asked for the word by word meaning 
of the last Paasuram of Swamy NammAzhwAr's ThiruvAimozhi(TVM)
(TVM: 10.10.11). This is the 1102nd Paasuram of ThiruvAimozhi. 
This is  a grand summation of the outcome of Swamy NammazhwAr's 
intense quest for Moksham ( Veedu PeRa avaa). Swamy NammAzhwAr 
expresses here his gratitude ( kruthaj~nathai) for the Lord's 
paramAnugraham of granting that prayer .AzhwAr also points out 
that this ThiruvAimozhi (TVM :10.10 ) was born out of his 
Parama Bhakthi after climbing through the lower rungs of 
the ladder of para Jn~Anam and para Bhakthi . He declares with 
great joy that the Lord has granted him the boon of 
apunarjanma sAyujyam described by Upanishads.

The condensed meaning of this important paasuram based on
Dr.V.N.VedAntha Desikan's AzhwAr ThiruvuLLam is:
Sriman NaarAyaNan , who mingles earnestly with His 
devotees in an intense manner is the Soul Prime of ALL 
including BrahmA and RudrA .That Lord was sought by SaThakOpA 
with a passionate longing  through the moving appeals housed
in the Paasurams of his ThiruvAimozhi. The Lord has now 
responded to the moving appeals of His dear devotee (SaThakOpan)
and thus SaThakOpan's ambition (wish) has been fulfilled
totally . SaThakOpan has now joined with his Lord. This decad 
sung by SaThakOpan in the mood of Parama Bhakthi as the final 
dasakam of the One Thousand paasurams of ThiruvAimozhi 
will guaranttee to anyone , who masters it ( this dasakam ) , 
the blessings of being born as a Nithyasoori (eternally liberated ).

This Final paasuram ( TVM: 10.10.11)has the following form:

avAvaRac choozh ariyai ayanai aranai alaRRi
avAvaRRu Veedu peRRa KuruhUr SathakOpan sonna
avaavil anthAdhikaLaal ivai aayiramum mudintha
avAvil anthAdhi ippatthu aRinthAr piRanthAr uyarnthE 

The word by word meanig is as follows:

Ayanai AraNai = by being the indweller (antharyAmi 
Brahmam )of BrahmA and RudrA)

avA aRacchoozh = and mingling intensely with the devotees,
who seek His Thiruvadi as the ultimate refuge 

Ariyai alaRRi = Calling passionately that VishNu ,
who is the antharyAmi Brahamam for BrahmA , RudrA
and all chEthnams

avaa aRRU veedu PeRRa 
KuruhUr SaThakOpan    = SaThakOpan born in ThirukkuruhUr
                        has got all his desires fulfilled 
                        and gained Moksha SaamrAjyam 
                        and the blessings of Nithya 
                        Kaimkaryam to his Lord as well
                        as ParpoorNa BrhmAnandham.

(kuruhUr SaThakOpan)
sonna                 = (this final decad ) has been sung
                         by KuruhUr SaThakOpan with devotion

anthAdhikaLAl ivai
aayiramum             = this final decad , which is a part
                        of " the thousand " Paasurams of TVM
                        set in the anthAdhi format ( the last 
                        word of the previous paasuram becoming 
                        the first word of the subsequent paasuram).

mudintha avAvil anthAdhi
ipatthu                 = this final decad (coming at the end 
                          of " the thousand " Paasurams) in 
                          the same anthAdhi format arose out of
                          the Parama Bhakthi of SaThakOpan 

(ipatthu) aRinthAr 
uyarnthE piRanthAr      = those , who recite and reflect on
                          the meanings of these final "ten" 
                          paasurams will be guaranted to be
                          born with a status equal to that
                          of the nithyasooris ( eternally 
                          liberated ones residing at Sri Vaikuntam).
                          At the time of their birth ,the merciful
                          glances of Lord Madhusoodhanan will fall
                          on them and guarantee them a status
                          that is hailed even by the Nithyasooris.
                          They become " karuvilE Thiru ULLavarkaL .

Swamy NammAzhwAr states here that the fortunate ones , who
recite the final dasakam born out of his Charama Bhakthi
( parama Bhakthi) will attain the status of " uyarnthE
piRanthAr" and will gain the "uyar nalam udayavan " and
will worship Him and will be freed from all "Thuyar"
as stated in the first paasuram of ThiruvAimozhi ( Avan
ThuyaraRu sudaradi thozhuvathu) as a result of gaining
Moksha Siddhi (Parama Padha PrApthi). 

Thus ends the glorious ThiruvAimozhi of Swamy NammazhwAr
celebrating the fulfillment of his intense desire for
Veedu (Moksham) and the Lord's fulfilment of that avaa.
