Ramanuja Nutranthathi – 28

“Srirangam Ramanujar”
“Srirangam Ramanujar”


அசரீரி கூறியதைக் கேட்டுத் தனது மனதில் க்ருஷ்ணன் மீது எப்போதும் விரோதம் கொண்டு கம்ஸன் இருந்தான். இப்படியாக நெஞ்சத்தில் கறை ஒன்றைக் கொண்டிருந்த கம்ஸனை, ஸம்ஹாரம் செய்தவன்; என்னை எம்பெருமானார் திருவடிகளில் பொருந்தி இருக்கும்படி அருளியவன் (நிமலன்); தாழ்வுகளுக்கு எதிர்தட்டாக உள்ளவன் (நிமலன்) ; பஞ்சு போன்ற வெண்மையான திருவடிகளை உடைய நப்பின்னை பிராட்டியின் நாயகன் – இப்படிப்பட்ட கண்ணனின் திருவடிகளை அண்டாமல் உள்ள வஞ்சக நெஞ்சம் படைத்தவர்களால் நெருங்க இயலாமல் உள்ளவர் எம்பெருமானார் ஆவார். என் போன்ற தாழ்ந்தவர்களின் மனதிலும் புகுந்து நிற்கும் எம்பெருமானாரின் உயர்ந்த குணங்கள் தவிர, வேறு எதனையும் உயர்வாகக் கூறி, எனது வாய் துதிக்காது. எனக்குக் கிட்டிய இத்தகைய உயர்ந்த வாழ்க்கையைக் கண்டீர்களா?

Though Amudhanar with naichyAnusanthAnam thought lowly of himself, here he consoles himself praising Sri Ramanujacharya’s glories and says: It adds to Acharya’s glory only.

ParaangmukhAnAm gOvindhE vishayA sakthaChEthasAm |
thEshAm thath paramam brahma dhooraath dhooratharE sThiram ||

That Govindhan –KaNNan- Ramanujan [Bala raamaa’s younger brother] is inaccessible for those who do not come to Him or who are not devoted to Him; same goes with our Ramanujan as well. Those who do not take refuge at His feet- His Holiness is farther and is inaccessible. He does not aspire for sishyAs; realizing His glories, they come to Him. Thus, AmudhAnAr also does not want to talk anything about those who do not take refuge at the feet of Ramanuja.


SarvEshwaran Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan who fought with the cruel and crooked kamsan, is precisely opposite to the nature of Kamsan in all respects.

He is Nimalan- blemishless- faultless. He is in love with the soft-natured (like that of cotton) tender footed Nappinaai PiraaTTi. Those who do not hold on to the Lotus Feet of Sriman Narayanan can not even go a step towards Sri Ramanujacharya. Thus, my mouth will keep praising Sri Ramanuja only and none else. How have I been blessed with such a great life! (It is His Grace!)

Right from the day he was born as Devaki puthran, Kamsan was troubling Kutti KaNNan by sending asurAs one after the other with an intent to kill. KaNNan – the most auspicious One- effortlessly finished him off and did good to him ultimately by sending him to the upper world; He takes care of and protects those who have faith in Him and who take refuge in Him;

niSAmayathu maam neeLA yadbhOgapatalairDhruvam |
bhAvitham sreenivaasasya bhakthadhOShEdhvadarSanam ||

Neela Devi gets her name only because of hiding the dhosham [defects] of her devotees without them [defects] being seen by others especially by her master Sriman Narayanan. She accomplishes this objective and controls Him with her beautiful brows and glances and thus KaNNan is in love with Neela Devi- Nappinnai PiraaTTi.

When KaNNan was so easily available, there were still many who were not devoted to Him and hence due to lack of devotion towards KaNNan, they were not able to appreciate the glories and kalyANa guNa of EmperumAnAr Sri Ramanujacharya as well. My tongue will talk only about his [Ramanuja’s] glories. This is such wonderful, great life – How am I able to get this effortlessly! ahO bhaagyam!
