         Here is another angle: the Lord had to "stop" after
         "reaching" because the aazhi could not keep up with
         the Lord and arrived a little late.  AzhvAr is pointing
         out our Lord's swiftness in coming to the aid of His
         prapannaas.

         Thank you Mr. Triplicane :-)
