In spite of that, you had promised to lead me to paramapadham — a place where only highly evolved souls manage to reach.
It will be significant aatthi note aartgi Maamunigal echoed the sentiments expressed by Vedantha Deshikan in TatwaMuktha Kalapam in the following sloka: Does it belittle you if you take steps to redeem me as the mother does it towards her child?
Mathurakavigal and Vaduganambi are classic illustrations following in this category. Now my mind realises that it should think of Moksha only and nothing else due to grace of Ethiraja who is adored universally.
In that case, what else have we got to worry about? I surrendered completely at your feet, as I know 40 B nobody else.
We learnt the Rahasya granthas of our preceptors and spent our time delivering discourses on them. His birthday Star is Arudra. In this verse, he explains how Nithya Mukthars like Adishesha, Garuda, Visvakshena, Nammazhwar and Thirumangai Azhwar are seated in paramapadham, with their collective arrangement symbolic of glittering beads and pearls.
These are responsible for the ills of the mortals in this earth. In all these days, I spent my life desirous of a place in this world without thinking about paramapadham — a place where Sriman Narayana resides permanently with his consort Sri.
These servants of the devotees Ramanuja will receive the blessings of the Azhwars. It is the day when the evils associated with kaliyuga perished.
The sea of Sakyam has beeen completely dried.
Just as Neem leaves that are repugnant in taste are relished, Ethiraja has accepted me with all my defects to be taken in his fold. How aarthhi should be spent is prescribed in another stanza to follow. Oh Ethiraja, there is a maxim that a man who does not leam in five years will not learn even in fifty years. Third, he refers to those people who sing the prabahdham of the well-wishers of Ramanuja Adiyars. In short this stanza reveals the saramaparvanNishtai.
It is the day when the glory of Vedas was revived. Afterwards, the Lord, Sri Vaikuntanatha, accepts the atma, places it on His lap and gives it unparalleled, eternal bliss. This indestructible atma, by virtue of being entrapped in the darkness of ignorance, suffers an everlasting night of samsara. The body is like neem.
If you manage to do all of these, you will be automatically blessed with liberation. Hence, we need not worry, as Ramanuja will surely sanction Moksha out of regard to the Acharya Srisailesha.
Going down in the hierarchy even Nityasuri like sEnai nNaathan nor Azhvars like Nammazhvar upto Kaliyan and Acharyas from Nathamuni can tolerate my sins. Manavala Mamunigal, the one who wears a garland made of flower buds, the one who remained glued to the lotus feet of Ramanuja and the one who is an embodiment of generosity, out of utter despair at having to remain in this world and desirous of a permanent place in paramapadham where the celestials offer their daily prayers to the Lord, instructed this prabandham to the people of this world.
Here they are blessed by Azhvars.
As a next step you must help me to get rid of this samsara wordly life. It will be seen that great significance is attached to every word in the stanza and perhaps it may be too long to bring out the full impact.
In a nutshell the theme conveyed is as under: Be devoted to such exalted Ramanuja. I am such a sinner that it is impossible for the Lord to tolerate me. Till today due to Karma time has been wasted without realizing it.

Oh Ramanuja, will great men passively watch their children slide to disaster when the latter perform forbidden activities? We were enriched through your aarrhi in a manner Madhurakavi Azhwar benefitted by associating himself with the lotus feet of Nammazhwar.
Maamunigal himself gives expression to this in his commentary on Mumukshuppadi.
Oh Ethiraja, my famous Acharya ThiruvaymozhippiUai so well known in the Vaishnavite world as Thirumalai azhvar referred as srisaileshar has been extremely kind to me and was singularly responsible to divert my devotion to you.
