SrI:

Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

Today, Vaikasi Visakham is the Thirunakshathram (Birth day) of our 
dearest NammAzhwAr. Let us all pray to His Lotus Feet for blessing us 
with ceaseless thought on his works and on His Emperumaan. He is the One 
who can correct us (Thirutthi paNi koLvaan). 

Let us read his 6.10 ten, wherein AzhwAr gives the essence of Dwaya 
manthram in his famous "aghalagillEn iRaiyumenRu alarmEl mangai uRai 
maarbhA!". It is the tenth pAsuram in this set. The whole set is an 
equivalent of Dwaya manthram, especially the tenth one completely. The 
entire set of these ten pAsurams is on Srinivasa PerumAL. 
(ThiruvEnkadatthaan). 

1."ulaghamuNda peruvaayaa! ulappil keerthi ammaanE!..."...During Cosmic 
cycel end (PraLaya kaalam) You ate the entire universe and protected the 
same by retaining it in your stomach; Such a Large mouthed Lord! (in 
order to eat the universe); The unbounded Powerful AmmaanE! 
(EmperumaanE!), the embodiment of fame! The Complete form of Suddha 
satva EmperumaanE! You are with the Most shining illustrious form of 
ThirumEni ( Divine Body)! NedumaalE! (Tall Lord! TrivikramA!) My Dearest 
life of my AthmA! Oh ThiruvEnkadatthAnE! The Lord Srinivas, who is 
standing at Tirumala! I hail from a family that has been performing 
kaimkaryam at Your Feet. You should bless me and let me join Your Lotus 
Feet.

2.EmperumaanE, The Chief of NityasUris! You have the most strongest 
Divine ChakrA in Your right Hand. What A strong ChakrA is that! It can 
cut the asurA groups into pieces and destroy them, and burn them to 
ashes. It shines so brightly with such ferocity and terrific rage. Oh 
BhagawaanE The One who has such a GREAT CHAKRA as Your weapon! 
ThiruvEnkadatthaanE! Your place Tirumala has Lotus flowers on the ponds 
like the beautiful lamps on the pond.  You should bless me (adiyEn, who 
has faultless love for You, Lord) to join You and reach Your Lotus Feet.    

3. BhagawaanE! You possess the Beautiful dark Colour that stupefies 
those who see and arrest their hearts in its exquisite dark beauty! 
("aiyO en chinthai kavarndhadhuvE!"- ThiruppaNaazhwAr) Oh My dearest 
Lord! You, not only possess such physical Beautiful Divine Form, but 
also the Most Glorious unbounded, limitless Most Auspicious attributes 
(kalyANa guNAs) and are the Primordial Lord! Just by a mere thought, You 
enter into my heart and taste so sweetly like "akkaara adisil" (nectar). 
Oh Chief of Your dearest NityasUris! In spite of being the chief of 
NityasUris, You have still gracefully made Yourself available to us at 
Tirumala. There at Tirumala, the beautiful waterfalls shower pearls, 
Gold and Emerald stones (means: they are so enjoyable). You are My 
Chief, ThiruvEnkadamudaiyaan, who is there standing at Tirumala! You 
should take pity on me and empathize with me (telling aiyO, aiyO, paavam 
SadagOpar) (for my longing to be at Your Feet) and take me to Your Feet. 
(In as much as You blessed me the way to reach You, as the only means 
for me, You should now bless me to reach Your Feet also. Emperumaan's 
Thiruvadi is the means as well as the end. )  

4. Without taking pity on the world, (and its people), the asurAs attack 
the world and kill its people mercilessly. To such cruel asurAs, You 
shower on them the rain of fiery arrows and destroy their lives 
completely! Oh valorous Lord, the One who has the Divine Bow in Your 
Hand (Saarngham)! Oh Master of Periya Piraatti, MahAlakshmI! Devaadhi 
DevA! The One desired even by Rishis and DevAs! The One who is at 
ThiruvEnkadam! Srinivaasaa! You should gracefully bless me to join Your 
Lotus Feet completely and uninterruptedly. 

5. BhagawaanE! (When Sugreevan tested You) You sent an arrow through the 
disorderly grown seven trees and showed Your capacity with Your Divine 
Bow. You went in between the two marudha maram (trees) with the mortar 
teid to your waist, during Krishnavataar. Like that You appeared as Rama 
and krishna and became our savior. You now are standing at ThiruvEnkadam 
as Srinivasa PerumAL for our benefit again. You are carrying the Most 
strongest Divine Bow in Your hands. When will adiyEn reach Your Most 
beautiful Lotus Feet? (Please bless me). 

6. DevAs come rushing to Tirumala, to obtain His Blessings with a desire 
to see His Lotus Feet. They always talk and sing in praise of Him, 
Srinivasar, and always worship Him in their thoughts, actions and words. 
Oh Srinaivasa, ThiruvEnkadamudaiyaanE! The One who is worshipped like 
that even by DevAs at ThirumalA! Your daasaanu daasan, adiyEn, when will 
I be able to see Your Lotus Feet and reach Your Feet? (Please bless me 
for the same.)
(Sri Mukkur Lakshimi narasimhachariar has written in his "kuRai 
onRumillai GovindhA" book about Lord Srinivasar. When someone pays 
obeisance to the Lord of Seven Hills, His right hand pointing downward, 
appears to be saying two things: 1. "Please do not always immerse 
Yourself in seeing my Thirumugham (face). Look at my feet and surrender. 
I will save you." 2. O.K You have come here to worship me and pay 
obeisance to me. But Did you go there first? "keezhE thaayarai 
sEvicchiyaah?" . He shows AlarmEl manghaapuram, where His dearest 
Nithyaanapaayinee- AlarmEl mangaithaayaar-akhila jagan maatharam- asmath 
maatharam-  is majestically sitting.) 

7. "adiyEn mEvi yamarginRa
  amuthE! imaiyOr athipathiyE,
kodiyaa atupuL LudaiyaanE!
  kOlak kanivaayp perumaanE,
sediyaar vinaikaL theermarundhE!
  thiruvENG kadaththem perumaanE,
nodiyaar pozhudhum unpaadham
  kaaNa nOlaa thaaRREnE.

Oh Nectar! (amudhamE) For me (the One who has no other thinking except 
the enjoyment of Your Beauty), You are the insatiable nectar, who has 
come and stayed in me. Oh the Chief of NityasUris! You have GarudA in 
Your flag. He is the One, who has the natural capacity to destroy the 
enemies. Oh Lord! the One who enslaved me with Your Most beautiful 
curvy, Reddish BimbhA fruit like lips! Lord! You are the medicine to 
alleviate the sins and sorrows arising out of our past karmAs. Oh 
Srinivasa, ThiruvEnkadamudaiyaanE! I have NO WAYS AND HAVE NO PUNYAMS 
NOR ANY AUSHTAANAM to reach You. BUT I CAN NOT SIMPLY WITHSTAND AND BEAR 
TO BE AWAY EVEN FOR A SECOND FROM SEEING YOUR LOTUS FEET. (When 
Paraasara Bhataar was asked by one of his disciples as to which slokA or 
pAsuram, Sri Ramanuja used to advise for pilfering the food to 
Emperumaan, Bhataar said it is this pAsuram,  "adiyEn mEvi amarghinRa 
amudhE!"...  and Pacchai maa malai pOl mEni..that YathirAjar wanted us 
to recite.) 

8. EmperumaanE! I HAVE NO QUALIFICATIOSN NOR ANY CREDITS TO REACH YOU. I 
HAVE NOT PERFORMED ANY PENANCE. - This statement - Am I the Only One who 
is telling? The Greatest jnAni and bhakthA, Sivan, the Faultless BrahmA, 
Indran- each one of such Greats- individually has approached You and 
claimed that they have NOT performed any penance nor do they any other 
means to attain Your Lotus Feet. They pay obeisance to You and go to 
ThiruvEnkadam to praise You there. (Because You are kaliyugha Varadhan.) 
Oh Such Greatest Lord! Like You came as a Sowlabhya KrishNan, You should 
come near adiyEn, too and bless me.

9. "vandhaay pOlE vaaraadhaay!
  vaaraa thaaypOl varuvaanE,
sendhaa maraikkaN senganivaay
  naalthO LamuthE! enathuyirE,
sindhaa maNikaL pagarallaip
  pagalsey thiruvENG kadaththaanE,
andhO! adiyEn unpaadham
  agala killEn iRaiyumE.

....An excellent pAsuram- this one and the next one. PerumaanE! You 
entered into my heart and have granted me immense happiness and 
anubhavam of having come into my heart. But You have NOT SHOWN YOURSELF 
FOR MY PHSYICAL EYES. I AM NOT ABLE TO SEE YOU AND TOUCH YOU WITH MY 
HANDS. Hence, You have NOT ACTUALLY COME. i.e. When I realize that You 
are not attainable and You have not come for me to touch You, I suffer 
terribly and melt; Then, You have suddenly made Yourself present in my 
heart and made me realize that You have COME. Oh My Dearest Lord! You 
have red Lotus like Beautiful eyes; BimbhA fruit like lips and mouth, 
Broad, Large Huge Four shoulders; My Life! My Dear! You are standing so 
gracefully at TirumalA, where the Most precious stones (like 
ChinthAmaNi) in those mountains shine so brightly that even dark nights 
appear and are illumined like broad daylights. Oh 
ThiruvEnkadamudaiyaanE! I, (adiyEn), CAN NOT EVEN FOR A FRACTION OF A 
SECOND, STAY AWAY FROM THE ABODE OF YOUR LOTUS FEET AT TIRUMALA AND MY 
ENJOYMENT OF BEING WITH YOU. (So beautifully written by AzhwAr; I am 
sorry I can NOT write in English what AzhwAr wishes to convey.- 
especially the next one is more excellent!)

10. (This is the Most famous pAsuram: If we can memorize, understand the 
meaning and recite daily, WE ARE SURE TO BE SAVED BY AZHWAR AND LORD SRI 
NIVASAR.)

`agala killEn iRaiyum'en
  RalarmEl mangai yuRaimaar_paa,
nigaril pugazhaay! ulagamoon
  Rudaiyaay! ennai aaLvaanE,
nigaril amarar munikkaNangaL
  virumpum thiruvENG kadaththaanE,
pugalon Rillaa adiyEnun
  adikkee zhamarndhu pugundhEnE.

Telling that She, AlarmEl manghai, will NOT be away from You even for a 
fraction of a second and stays in Your Chest always (Nityaanapaayinee), 
Oh SrI nivaasaa! The One who is unparalleled and unbounded famous Lord! 
The One who has all the three worlds to His possession! My Ruler! The 
peerless dEvAs and rishis worship You, pay obeisance to You, and desire 
You at TirumalA, always, ThiruvEnkadatthaanE! I,- THE ONE WHO HAS NO 
OTHER MEANS AND NO ONE ELSE FOR MY REDEMTION EXCEPT YOU AND ONLY YOU- 
YOUR ETERNAL SEVANT AND ONLY YOURS- HEREBY SURRENDER AT YOUR LOTUS FEET. 
YOU SHOULD BLESS ME AND TAKE ME TO BE AT YOUR FEET FOR EVER.  (AzhwAr in 
order to fulfill his desire and wish for being with the Lord's Lotus 
Feet, takes Periya Piraati to his side, as Purushaakaaram and surrenders 
at Emperumaan's Lotus Feet. In the above nine pAsurams, he talks about 
Emperumaan's greatness. Here, he expressed his disqualification, 
limitations, helplessness, and having none else to save and protect him. 
i.e. Having no qualifications, Having disability to pursue any other 
means (like jnAnam, karma,  Bhakti yOgam), realizing the eternal nature 
of being His servant always- are the qualities to perform Prapatti at 
Divya Dampati's Feet. (also taking Periya Piraatti to his side and 
recommendation, praising her being closeness with Him). this pAsuram is 
the essence of Dwaya manthram. AlarmEl magahi: SrI. aghalagillEn- math 
(Sri + math). Nigaril pughazhaay... ThiruvEngadatthaanE... NarayaNa. 
unnadikkeezh- charaNau. amarndhu pugundhEnE....saraNam PrapadyE.)

11. ThiruvEnkadamudaiyaan shows His Feet to His BhakthAs by pointing His 
right Hand down and asks them to surrender at His Feet for their 
redemption. About that peerless, unparallelled Supreme Lord, Srinivasar, 
and in praise of Him, Sri SadagOpar has sung 1000 pAsurams. Out of those 
1000, these ten are on ThiruvEnkadam. Those who read these ten are 
DEFINITE TO STAY AT THE ETERNAL EVER PERMANENT PARAMAPADHAM.
