A. From SrImAn SaDagOpan's tamizh treatise

Through this tirumozhi that we enjoyed, and which is set to music and filled with beautiful words with deep meaning, gOdai who is with loosely hanging hair (because she is not tying them or decorating herself), and who is the daughter of periAzhvAr, the leader of those in srIvilliputtUr that has golden terraced palaces, conveys to her relatives her firm resolve that she should be taken to all the divya dESams associated with kaNNan starting from mathurA and ending with dwArakai.  Those who chant these pASurams will live forever in SrIvaikuNTham with emperumAn.

B. Additional thoughts from SrI PVP: 

mannu madurai toDakkamAga vaN tuvarApati tannaLavum: godai asks the elders to take her to the divya deSam-s  starting from His birth place mathurA and ending in dvArakA, where He gave Himself to sixteen thousand dEvi-s.  As far as she is concerned, the world comprises only of divya dEsams that have her kaNNan’s  sambandham.    
mannu mathurai: The term “mannu” is translated approximately as “the place where emperumAn resides permanently – emperumAn nilaittirukkum ” by SrI UV in his vyAkhyAnam for “mAyanai” pASuram of tiruppAvai. SrI kRshNasvAmi aiye’ngAr quotes from SrI PVP’s mUvAyirappaDi vyAkhyAnam for tiruppAvai (5) to bring out the greatness of mathurAi: “bhagavat sambandham mARAda dEsam.  munbu siddhArSramamAi SrIvAmanan neDungAlam tapas paNNi, SatrugnAzhvAn vanniya maRuttup paDai vIDu Seydu, sarvEswaran eppOdum ippaDi avadarittup pOruvadoru dESam” (the mathurA in the north has been a dEsam that has constantly had bhagavat sambandham.  Before emperumAn took trivikrama avatAram, He appeared as SrI vAmanan and did penance in siddhASramam – which happens to be the vaDa mathurai.This mathurai was established by Satrugnan (who was sent by Sri rAma to vanquish lavaNAsuran) after killing the asuran”.  
tannait tamar uyttup peyya vENDi:  godai is too weak to walk by herself; She is asking her elders to physically carry her and take her to all these divyadeSam-s.  This should be kept in mind when we come to “Etta vallArkku iDam vaikuntamE” below.  
tAzh kuzhalAL tuNinda tuNivai:  She is not taking care of her hair and not keeping it combed; hence her hair is all hanging loose – tAzh kuzhal; she is determined to make Him come to her, and all else is irrelevant for her.    
ponniyal mADam polindu tOnRum puduvaiyar kOn viTTucittan godai: The greatness of  SrIvilliputtUr is to be enjoyed here – ANDAL’s birthplace has gold-laced terraces on all its tall buildings, just like in dvArakA (see previous pASuram –Suttu uyar mADa’ngaL Suzhndu tOnRum tuvarApati).    
inniSaiyAl Sonna Se’ncol mAlai:  iniya Sol here refers not only to the sweet music of these pASurams; the more significant aspect is that the pASurams are full of love for bhagavAn. The words come of out of godai’s devotion-laden heart; it is her special garland to Him made out of sweet, melodious, devotional, love-laden words (sol mAlai).  
iDam vaikuntamE: Those who chant these devotional pASuram-s need not plead with anyone to take them to His abode, as ANDAL is doing through these pASuram-s; instead, they will be taken with no effort on their part, to SrIvaikUNtham through the arcirAdi mArgam by His appointed folks and they will enjoy Him and His aDiyArgaL forever after.

Pasuram for acquiring good Knowledge


For acquiring any knowledge we need concentration. If we started to concentrate on acquiring divine knowledge then the academic knowledge is very easy observe and analyse. In ThiruvAimozhi first centum 10th decade’s first pasuram itself Azhwar say i am concentrating on the emperumaan who has grown sky high, then continues that after concentrating on emperumaan and getting him in his heart nothing is impossible for him.
Then in last pasuram which states the phalan we get through these pasurams, azhwar declares those who recites this pasuram with concentration will be blessed with all knowledges.

(Pasurams marked as ## should be recited twice)

“Oh (my) foolish mind! To my bhagawaan- not only mine, (but) also of my father and all ancestors before him; To such Emperumaan- who has the eyes identical to cool, lotus flowers, -who has the beloved piraatti MahA lakshmi,  having the soft, beautiful waist similar to the creeper,- pay obeisance to Him;”

“Oh (my) mind! You also have realised the Emperumaan . the One who had swallowed the Seven lOkas; who had measured the three worlds with just three measurements of His small(!) Feet; – Now when thing are materialising (when we are blessed by His mercy), can you see it is happening even without our thinking about it? (dearest sisters and brothers, I guess, Azhwar has already started seeing the Emperumaan, by now and he is excited!)

“The Lord- who is thought of as ” My Father! My Emperumaan!” by dEvAs, – To such Lord even I- the Biggest Sinner- will also praise Him as “My Father!” And “My Emperumaan!” with my mouth (talking) and think of Him;”

“The moment I hear “Sriman NarayaNan”, tears start falling down from my eyes; and I start searching for Him; (Looks like, now Sri Hari has disappeared from AzhwAr’s vision!) This is a wonder! (Because) The One who is full of Grand Good kalyANa GuNAs, during the day and the night as well (at all times) is merciful towards me and believes that I am His servant and is not leaving me.”

Due to what reason can I forget?)”

“Even after realising that I do not know the way of forgetting(like last pAsuram) and then knowing Him, He still thinks that this guy will ultimately forget me and decides to stay with me as my Blue Pearl, my Emperumaan . Of such Emperumaan . will I ever be able to forget Him? (Never)”

“The One who shines like The Blue Pearl; The Chief of dEvAs; He himself, an ornament for Him;- About Him, SadagOpan, born in Thirukkurugoor, through his words of these ten pAsurams out of 1000 pAsurams offered his kainkaryam to the Lord; If one learns these ten pAsurams with fullest concentration, (and does not get satisfied with his learning), then they will get Great knowledge (jnAnam)”
