"Part 4" - Ayira vAy pada mookkin pAmbaNai
Dear bAgawathAs,

	AdisEshan is believed to have 1000 heads and 1000  mouths. In
tamil Ayiram means 1000. It is said that Sri AdisEshAn is  all  happy
and is tall and erect with al his 1000 heads.  This  is possible only
due to the sambandham  with "engaL perumAL" Sri ArA  amudhan of thiru
kudanthai. It is "engaL perumAL's sparisam" or contact that makes Sri
Adi sEshan stand tall and proud with his "padam". His 1000 noses  are
also displayed in a beautiful way due to  this  sambandham  with  the
"engaL perumAL". Having spent all our time immersing in the beauty of
Sri ArA amudhan, when we see Sri Anantha AzhwAn in this sannithi,  he
also appears as if  we  can  worship  him  while  he  is  doing  this
kainkaryam to "engaL perumAL" Sri ArA amudhan.

	Sri PV pillai in his collective nirvAham delivers  that  "Our
Lord  stood  in  thiru  atthi yoor to become "em pirAn". But HE is to
lying down in  thiru  kudanthai  on Sri Anatha AzhwAn  by  displaying his paratthva sowlabyams (sengan etc.,)  and  as  well HIS thiru mEni azhagu or the beauty of HIS thiru mEni. HE is doing all these simply to  attain us.

HE wants to attain us by weeding the jivA kOdis of the roots and  the
seed of samsAram. We will be uprooted  of  the  samsAric  bondage and
that  is  the  main  reason "engaL perumAL" Sri Amudhan has come here
for. Sri PV Pillai further adds that our Lord is adament that HE will
not get up from  HIS 1000 headed serpent bed untill HE rids us of the
samsAric roots. With  such a  resolve  HE  descended  down  to  thiru
kudanthai and spread  out  HIS bed and is lying down here waiting for
helping each one of us.
