Sri:

Dearest Sisters and brothers,

AzhwAr addresses his mind saying “We are not able to get rid of our longing 
for the worldly pleasures; this life is tremendously transitory; flickering 
life; never ever permanent; the carnal desires attack us; the material 
wealth is never permanent and does not stay with us for ever. Realizing 
this, and leaving all of them, if at all, we search for athma jnAnanm; then 
we need to realize that other religions and doctrines are completely 
“non-Vedic” and utter only the name of Lord of Thiruvallavaazh. (Excellent 
ten- more appropriate for us, in its entirety.)

1. Oh mind! If you have realized the transitory nature of life and that of 
relations like father, mother, children, other relatives, et al, and have 
realized that it is not right for this AthmA, who is eternal sEsha bhUthan 
(servant) for Emperumaan, to be caught up in such bonded lives after lives, 
all that you need to do is: Utter the Divine Name of Thiruvallavaazh 
Emperumaan, who took the strong KaNNan avtaar; who is a Nirvaahakan of 
everything and everyone; who is the creator of all during srushti and who is 
the destination for all during praLayam.

2. Oh nenjamE! (Mind!) If you are scared of (or apprehensive that it is 
dangerous) sensuous pleasures from young women, who have tender, narrow 
waist (that conquers even the lightning and the creeper in this thinness and 
beauty), then all that you need to do is: Have the strength to utter the 
divine name of Thiruvallavaazh Emperumaan, who had gone as a messenger for 
the kings, Pancha paaNdavaas, whose crown are densely bedecked with precious 
gems stones.

3. Oh nenjamE! If you think it is wrong to listen to sweet sugar coated lies 
as truthful statements from those young women of tender breasts where 
beautiful ornaments loiter, then, all that you need to do is: Have the 
strength to utter the divine name of Thiruvallavaazh Emperumaan, who had 
appeared as Vammanan and begged the three measures of earth from mahaa 
bhali.

4. nenjamE! If you plan to escape from thoughts and influences of people who 
always dream of hugging the tender breasts of young women, then all that you 
need to is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of Thiruvallavaazh 
Emperumaan, who stands permanently at ThiruvEmkatam, and shows Himself to 
Devas; who shows Himself always to Nithyasooris at Paramapadham; and who has 
the Divinely beautiful ocean like bluish form.

5. nenjamE! If you think of those kings who ruled so greatly vast area, 
under their umbrella, surrounded by elephants, and have all become non 
existent now by simply perishing, (realizing the transitory flickering 
nature of lives as well as the material power /wealth), then all that you 
need to do is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of Thiruvallavaazh 
Emperumaan, the little baby KaNNan, who had placed His one Hand on 
Poothanai’s large poisonous breast and sucked the life of Poothanai along 
with the milk.

6. nenjE! Entering into the sarIram of these births, if you are scared of 
the attacks and influence of those cruel five sense organs, who torment you 
continuously asking for their respective sensual pleasures,), then all that 
you need to do is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of Lord of 
Thiruvallavaazh, where Brahmins consider the four Vedsa, five agnis, six 
Veda angas, etc., as their very lives.

7. NenjamE! If you (have realized) consider the words (statement of 
vibharItha jnAnam) that this sarIram (which is filled only with cluster of 
diseases), is the permanent one, most truthful, - as false, all that you 
need to do is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of Lord of 
Thiruvallavaazh, who is the Brighjt Sun, the Moon, the dark rainy clouds and 
all others- the Most wonderful Lord who resides here permanently.

8. nenjamE! The skies where the clouds wander; the fire, the water; the 
Earth- the Air- a combination of these pancha bhUthAs- is this body of ours 
and if you realize that this is not permanenet and is not going to save you, 
- all that you need to do is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of 
Lord of Thiruvallavaazh, where He along with His unparalleled, Divine 
Consort Periya PiraaTTi, seated on the Golden Lotus flower, who adorns Her 
tender breasts with most fragrant sandal paste.

9. NenjamE! “veLLiyaar; piNdiyaar; bOdhiyaar; enRu ivar OdhuginRa- kaLLa 
nool thammaiyum karumam anRu -enRu uyyak karudhinaayEl”-( veLLiyaar- Those 
who consider Sivan, seated in white mountain (Kailasam) as the Parathvam; 
piNdiyaar- Jains (Arhathar?) Bodhiyaar- Buddhists)    - If you have realized 
that the words and paths of Saivites, Jains and Buddhists are not the RIGHT 
PATH and are wrong scriptures (kaLLa nool) and wish to actually get saved, 
all that you need to do is: Have the strength to utter the divine name of 
Lord of Thiruvallavaazh, where jnAnis go and pay their obeisance to their 
Lord (having realized the only way and the Goal as He); the One who granted 
most mercifully the nectar to Devas- Udhaara SwabhAvan- and who resides here 
permanently.

10. This ten is on the Lord of Thiruvallavaazh, where Vedic scholars, 
faultless Brahmins live; It is composed by Kaliyan of beautiful, vast 
Thiruvaali naadu, surrounded by gardens. Those who recite this ten, composed 
by him, will first be blessed to rule this earth and then rule Paramapadham 
too.
