Thiruvaaymozhi 8.7- He is just waiting for our "NOD" to enter into our heart!

Sri:

Dearest Sisters and Brothers, 

AzhwAr simply could NOT imagine that what he is experiencing (i.e. the 
Lord entered into his heart and stays united with him) is TRUE. He is 
simply flabbergasted at Emperumaan's mercy on him and His decision to 
stay united with him. AZHWAT IS DAMN EXCITED AND THESE VERSES REALLY 
SPEAK VOLUMES OF HIS JOY AND HAPPINESS! He is OVERWHELMED BY 
EMPERUMAAN'S LIMITLESS MERCY. Let us enjoy both AzhwAr's joy and 
Emperumaan's mercy.

1. I pleaded Him everyday and prayed to Him that I need to be blessed by 
Him to be at His Feet as His servant. When I did so, that Vaamana 
mUrthy, out of His great mercy blessed me and accepted my request. In 
fact, He has considered my request as His own thinking. He is so happy 
glancing at me continuously. (NampiLLai elaborates so beautifully: 
Emperumaan's glancing the AzhwAr so happily without taking His eyes off 
is similar to that of the relieved proud happy Parents who look at their 
child coming out unscathed from a very dreadful big deadly disease! - 
How nice is the comparison and simile!)
 
2. Emperumaan mercifully made the efforts of all my cruel five sense 
organs (to attack my mind with dreadful terrible diseases) get destroyed 
completely and also shows His Divine Beauty to me, while He keeps on 
looking at me gracefully! He captivated and attracted me with His 
exquisite beauty to enable me to prevent myself getting entangled into 
influence of five senses. The way He has thus shown His dayA/ mercy on 
me, the lowly self. His dayA on me is much bigger than His krupai on 
GajEndrA even. When one realises His krupai (or dayA) on me, His mercy 
on that GajEndra is NOTHING. I can tell that this is so great and so 
magnanimous of Him.
 
3. My Lord, Emperumaan, is present in my heart so as to completely 
remove my ajjnAnam (ignorance). Hence, His mercy and dayA to escape the 
influence of sense organs is also comparably less than this dayA of His. 
Not just that alone! The Lord, who is at Paramapadham and rules all 
three worlds from there, considers my heart more grand and dear for Him 
and lovingly, willingly stays in my heart. Is it NOT MY PARAMA BHAGYAM? 
Even His love and affection/dayA on me- I am scared that it is His one 
of His mischief or is it my own day dreaming that He is my heart? I 
don't know.
 
4. KaNNan- that Chief of Nitya sUris- isn't He the Male Lion? (Yes He 
is!). He has kept His Most Beautiful Divine Divya MangaLa vigraham in my 
heart and has completely ruled me! Due to His grace and mercy, I have NO 
DOUBTS hereafter; No more- such doubts, suspicions, those terrible, 
traps can approach me! Since, He has mixed with me by being in my heart, 
I will NOT say that He has haunted me and confounded my confusions. I 
will only say that He has only illuminated my inner self with His 
Greatest brightest jYothswarUpam in me.
 
5. He entered and is standing in me so mercifully to let the whole world 
celebrate me "Blessed really is he". Due to His grace, He saved me; He 
stayed in me and is even making others praise me. He showed me this and 
is standing in me like a mountain of Emerald. There is nothing more 
blissful than this. I do not need and long for any other enjoyment, nor 
any other praises. 

6. When there are so many pleasures and happiness that He can bless one, 
He has blessed me with the Greatest of all- offering Himself to me in my 
heart. To who else, will He offer Himself like this? It is due to His 
love for me, He has offered Himself. What a Beauty is He! He is like the 
Lotus flowers (His eyes, His chest, His Hands, His Lotus Feet, Navel, ) 
bloom above the huge Black Emerald mountain.

7. His Red Beautiful mouth, His lovely youthful navel, His milk white 
teeth, His long hair, - all of these are competing with each other in 
their beauty. He is simply the personification of Beauty. Such Lord has 
enetered into my heart and is looking at me with His Divine Beautiful 
smile on His Coral lips. I do not know anything other than His smiling 
face and His Greatest limitless mercy on me for that. That is ENOUGH FOR 
ME. I DO NOT NEED ANYTHING ELSE.

8. My ruler- My master- "I should bless and shower my dayA"- if ever He 
decides of that, He needs no reason or efforts on our part. He simply 
pours His dayA very happily and willingly. He shows His joy completely. 
Such a thing he has done on me. I do not know anything else. Such a 
Greatest Lord- who has all three worlds in His stomach- is now staying 
in the heart of this "small" person so mercifully; What can I say about 
that!

9. The kings protect his people like the mother protects the foetus. 
These kings help and provide alms to Brahmins. Hence the three worlds 
protect these kings and Brahmins in them, which in turn are protected by 
Sriman Narayanan in His stomach (during MahA praLayam). Such Greatest 
SarvEshwaran is He. When he protects the worlds, He doe NOT undergo any 
change or transformation at any time. Due to his grace, He has shown 
mercy on me and is in my heart permanently.

10. (Dearest Sisters and Brothers! THIS IS A VERY GOOD PASURAM!). 
ParamAthmA- Param poruL Emperumaan- I have retained in Him, with my 
"anumathi" (permission). (i.e. PerumAL wished to come in and I said 
"ok". He entered- ALL THAT HE IS WAITING FOR IS OUR NOD AND HE IS 
EXTREMELY PLEASED TO ENTER INTO OUR HEART AN STAYS. WHAT A DAYA 
SAAGARAN! AN OCEAN OF MERCY!) After that, I will never get separated 
from Him anymore. That Emperumaan has the bed of Adhiseshan on the Milk 
Ocean (ThiruppaaRkadal). Such SarvEshwaran has entered into His property 
(i.e. me) and hence, I WILL NOT HAVE ANY MORE SORROWS. 

11. Sri SadagOpar of Thirukkurugoor has sung about the ways to attain 
the Lotus Feet of Emperumaan (who has Adhiseshan as His Bed) in 1000 
pAsurams. Those who read these ten (out of 1000) will NOT GET THE 
DISEASE OF BIRTHS.
