Is it fair on your part to enjoy the eternal bliss of paramapadham when I remain entrapped in this bondage of samsara?
He will lead me to paramapadham through the archirathi route. All these episodes are referred to in the line quoted above.
Is this Aarth where Yatiraja King among ascetics was born to rid us of all our qarthi. Mahalakshmi in the throne of paramapadham along with the bliss the celestials and Nithya Mukthars enjoy in His company. Maturity has not still set in with the result sinful acts continue and accretions of sins increase day by day. There, Atma is received by the Lord with great affection, gets seated and finally merged there eternally.
We were enriched through your sambandham in a manner Madhurakavi Azhwar benefitted by associating himself with the lotus feet of Nammazhwar. Instead of helping me to get rid of the effects of my actions which, incidentally, have gathered by the heaps and elevating me to paramapadham, why are you remaining silent?
Shamanam, which grew like wild bush, was extinguished by fire like logic.
I have attained the feet of Thiruvaimozhippillai — a doyen glorified by other renowned scholars. While I continue to remain in this state, on what basis, will my father Yatiraja come forward and offer me a place in paramapadham? I have unconditionally surrendered to you as my means of salvation. But, despite that resolution, I had been doing only wicked and sinful acts till this day non-stop, and repeatedly pleading before you to excuse me assuring that I will not repeat the same.
The feet of Ramanuja, that contains the best prabandhma divine auspicious qualities, may that live long! I appear to be suffering as a result of all the three kinds of sins. From that moment my mind realises that you are the embodiment of all relations.
In my case, I have been really committing those grave sins. By virtue of your grace, create in me the interest for liberation and bless me by being my means to paramapadham as soon as possible. Hence he submits a passionate appeal at the Holy feet of Ramanuja.
All such anecdotes and sayings of Maamunigal help Vaishnava devotees worshipping at the Temples to identify themselves totally with the exhilarating experience the Acharya felt.
In that case, why are you passively watch my body suffer the consequences of my past sins?
Sri Manavaala Mamunigal
Another feature with Maamunigal is the mention and appreciation of scholars together with their quotations wherever relevant in his writings limiting unlike others who will make only cursory references. The most elaborate one called Eedu attracted the attention of even the Lord. Hence, we need not worry, as Ramanuja will surely sanction Moksha out of regard to the Acharya Srisailesha.
Through the first two verses, Mamunigal drives home the greatness of Ramanuja Sambandham which can aartih us from samsara. Where else I can go? There is a misconception that Maamunigal composed this prabandham in his last days when he fell ill. Vide sloka 39 mentioned below. For this attitude this physical body is a great handicap. That is why it is called Archiradi route. Such is the depth of devotion of Maamunigal towards Purvacharyas preceptors in the past. It is here that we need the grace of our Acharyan to prabanfham the river of samsara.
Yatiraja Vimsati Yathindra Pravanar. In spite of that, you had promised to lead me to paramapadham — a place where only highly evolved souls manage to reach.
He directs his mind to acknowledge the role played by his acharya in guarding him from the negative effects of his actions. Oh Ramanuja, may your mighty shoulders which are adorned with basil garlandswhich can retrieve people from the depths of samsara and the compassion that drives you to their rescue live long!
Incidentally the supremacy of Acharya Bhakthi over Bhagavath bhakthi is indicated as salvation is impossible but for the Acharya. The son quarrels with the mother, refuses food offered by her and goes out of the house in anger to sleep in a choultry. In this verse Maamunigal strengthens his appeal by bringing in his Acharya. Bhattar will always be mentioning the name of Ranganatha. Hence it is proposed to touch on the main aspect leaving the readers who are interested to learn more to study the commentaries on this work.
It is very difficult to bring out the full effect in an alien medium. People who have no such attributes are dependent only on your grace, Oh Ramanuja.
Only by your recommendation I must be liberated from my sins and sent to Moksha. Maamunigal is fed up with the life in this word of darkness of enlightenment and compares it to the darkness in the night. Kindly grant me the pleasant experience in ever bright Thirumamani Mandapam where glitter the diamonds studded in the hood of Adhisesha serving as a cushioned bed of the Lord in whose right side Lakshimi Devi is seated and Bhoomi Neela Devis are seated on His left side and where immortal devotional followers are lined in rows in front of the Lord.
The sorrow I experience today is solely a result of my karma.
