"Part 5" - AdisEshanin Azhagu en sollukkE azhagu
Dear bAgawathAs,

      Many AzhwArs have praised Sri AdisEshan in thiru kudanthai and
Srirangam. Among such comparisons, one can definitely see  that  the
references to Sri AdisEshan of thirukudanthai are very special and a
degree higher than that of any other arcchA form of Sri AdisEshan in
this boolOgam. One may wonder as to why we must look  at  the beauty
of perumAL's bed instead  of comparing the beauties of perumALs them
selves. Well in tamil if i put it,

pookkum poovellAm parikkum kai azhagu
poovin vAsamellam tharikkum mey azhagu
amuthin irukkaikkum Or aboorva azhagu
AdisEshanin azahgu en sollukkE azhagu

A flower when blossomed it goes with the beauty  of  the  hand  that
plucks it and the beauty of the flower is doubled when the beauty of
the hand that bears it also adorable. Also,  the  fragrance  of  the
flower comes with the mey or the azhgu of its Athman.  When amirtham
is place on its seat in Indira's royal kingdom it is itself  looking
very beautiful. How ever when i say   about the beauty  of  our  Sri
AdisEshan of thiru  kudanthai  those  tamil words themselves becomes
very beautiful  simply  due  to  the  sambandham of Sri AdisEshan of
thiru kudanthai. This sambhandam   comes to those tamil words merely
because they were the one that were used in  praising  Sri AdisEshan of thiru kudanthai.

Another meaning:
A very beautiful flower by name Sri Amudhan is here and  HIS beauty
is uncomparable due  to  the  hands  that  are  bearing  HIM ie Sri
AdisEshan of thirukudanthai.  The  fragrance  of  a flower known as
SriAmudhan is so pleasant and spread everywhere due to his agam and
"Avi" wherein HE had kept HIS  adiyArs  such  as Sri AdisEshan. The "irukkai" or the seat (Sri AdisEshan of thiru  kudanthai)  of   Sri Amudhan is a rare sight  in this boolOgam  and  is  very beautiful.
The beauty of Sri AdisEshan is  a  beauty  for  the  "en sol" or en
solukku azhagu or the beauty of Sri AdisEshan is an added beauty to
the  (en  sol - 8 letters)  thiru   attAkshara  moorthy  who is Sri Amuthan HIMself.
