Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

When AzhwAr was terribly tormented by Emperumaan's beauty and longed to 
see Him, lamented in the last ten, Emperumaan also had His dvarai 
(longing-urgency) to join the AzhwAr and bless him. At 
Thirukkaditthaanam Divya dEsam, He shows Himself to AzhwAr and blesses 
the AzhwAr. AzhwAr narrates his ecstasy in this ten. Let us also get 
ecstatic with his yet another outpourings!

1. Emperumaan, during days and nights, at all times, showers mercy on us 
and only us-in order to save us. He has adorned His Head with the lily 
flower and the cool fragrant ThuLasi garland. Emperumaan- My father- is 
present so gracefully at Thirukkaditthaanam where Sri Vaishnavas, who 
are blessed with the invaluable wealth of performance of kaimkaryam at 
His Feet. That is His place.

2. Emperumaan, when He appeared as Sri Rama, fought with the egoistic, 
the head strong (having false pride) rAvanA and his army and rained the 
arrows at them to kill them. (AndAL says "thaazhaadhE saarngham 
udhaittha sara mazhai pOl"- the bow raining the arrows..).That peerless 
chief of mine has considered my heart and this Divya dEsam 
(Thirukaditthaanam) as equal and has willingly stayed at both places. 
Thus, He is lovingly staying in my heart too, as He does at 
Thirukkaditthaanam.

3. When He appeared as Sri Rama and when He stood and fought with asurAs 
in the battle, He fought with one- two- three and many others at the 
same time as if He is one- two- three and many forms simultaneously and 
killed them. The same wonderful, valorous Lord is here at 
Thirukkaditthaanam along with Periya Piraatti- MahAlakshmi. When I think 
of His such wonderful acts, it is so sweet to think of them. (i.e - the 
Lord who has Sri MahAlakshmi in His Chest, the One who stays so 
gracefully and so willingly at Thirukkaditthaanam is here in my heart 
also so willingly. To think of that, it is so sweet of Him!)   

4. Maayavan- Mysterious Mischievous Lord- My Emperumaan not only did He 
alleviate my sorrows and sins, also He, out of His Great compassion, has 
permanently stayed in my heart as if it is His Parama padham. He also is 
staying Permanently at Thirukkaditthaanam, too. The Brightest NityasUris 
even come here to pay their obeisance to Him at this place. It is the 
Divya dEsam and is the holiest place. Like He is housing Himself in this 
Divya dEsam, He is also housing Himself at my heart.

5. He considers both Thirukkaditthaanam as well as my heart as His 
temple and stays here willingly. The same Emperumaan, who has entered 
into my heart is worshipped by the Divinely NityasUris in all Divya 
dEsams. The Sri vaikunta Nathan is the One who danced as Sri KrishNan. 
He has fallen in love with me and out of His love for me, He has stayed 
in my heart like Thirukkaditthaanam.

6. The robber of hearts- Emperumaan - SarvEshwaran- the One who performs 
so wonderful acts- has removed all my sins and has delinked all 
bondages. The same swami of mine has destroyed madhu kaitapar asurAs and 
got His name Madhusoodhanan. That Emperumaan is present at 
Thirukkaditthaanam. If you go to this place and pay obeisance to this 
Emperumaan and praise Him, ALL YOUR SORROWS AND SINS WILL VANISH 
IMMEDAITELY AND NOT STAND ANYWHERE NEAR YOU. PLEASE DO NOT THINK AS "YET 
ANOTHER" LIP TALK, AND PAY ATTENTION AND GET IT DRILLED INTO YOUR HEAD 
AND FOLLOW.". (That is AzhwAr's advice to us!)

7. The Parama sowlabhyan- so simple GodHead- Sri KrishNan had measured 
the whole Universe in His just two steps.To pay obeisance to such Great 
Lotus Feet of Emperumaan, ordinary people and the Nitya sUris come to 
Thirukkaditthaanam. IF YOU SIMPLY THINK OF THIS PLACE EVEN, ALL YOUR 
SORROWS WILL DISAPPEAR.

8.There are actually many places that Emperumaan is quite pleased with 
and stays (like other Divya sthalams). He also stays in this earth, 
Paramapadham, ThiruppaaRkadal (Milk Ocean), etc.. EVEN THEN, He has 
gleefully accepted this Thirukkaditthaanam and my HEART as if they are 
His inherited property, and is staying most gracefully at these two 
places so beautifully.

9.Emperumaan, out of His own desire, is showing Himself in His 
"archaavathaaram" at various old, sacred, Greatest Divya dEsams. EVEN 
THEN, the Bright Nitya sUris come, stay and pay obeisance to their 
dearest Emperumaan only at Thirukkaditthaanam. That Emperumaan of 
Thirukkaditthaanam is the One who appeared as the Chief of cowherd 
people at Ayarpaadi. That "accharya" Lord (wonderful Lord) has become so 
dear to me at both these places (i.e.. my heart and Thirukkaditthaanam).

10.In my heart, Emperumaan- The Most Wonderful Narayanan ("aRputhan 
NaraNan arivaamanan niRpathu mEvi iruppathu en nenjamE") is willingly 
staying. That Emperumaan, who appeared as the Lion and Vaamanan is the 
same one who is here at Thirukkditthaanam Divya dEsam permanently. This 
place Thirukkaditthaanam is the place of Vedic scholars and pure 
brahmins. He is here at this place much before He has come into my 
heart. But after He has got (me) my Heart, that is where He stands, 
stays at all times. (What an anubhavam! What an outpouring! 
Thirumazhisai AzhwAr also says: "anRu naan piRandhilEn; piRandha pin 
maRandhilEn; ninRathum, irundhathum kidandhathum en nenjuLE!- Those days 
I was not born; After I was born, (i.e. after being blessed by the Lord 
with a jnAnam about the Lord) I never forget; Now He stands, sits, and 
lies down in my heart only!)

11.Thirukurugoor Sri SadagOpar has sung 1000 pAsurams in praise of 
Emperumaan, who is present always at Thirukkaditthaanam. Out of these 
1000 verses (pAsurams) which are as sweet as the Milk and nectar, these 
ten pAsurams will enable its readers stay at Sri Vaikuntam most 
wonderfully.
