Ramanuja Nutranthathi – 31

Sri Yathirajar


ஸம்ஸாரபந்தம் மற்றும் மோக்ஷம் ஆகிய இரண்டின் தன்மைகளையும் அறியும் மனமே! பல ஆண்டுகள், பல மாதங்கள், பல நாட்கள் என்றுள்ள காலங்கள் முழுவதிலும் – தேவர்கள், மனிதர்கள், விலங்குகள் என்று பலவாகப் பிறந்தும், இறந்தும் உழல்கின்றோம். இவ்விதம் இன்று வரை நான் எம்பெருமானாரின் திருவடிகள் பற்றிய சிந்தனை இல்லாமல் இருந்தேன். ஆனால் இன்று நடந்தது என்ன? காண்பதற்கு ஏற்ற அகன்ற தோள்களை உடையவனும், நாம் சரணம் புக ஏற்ற எஜமானன் போன்றவனும், “நகரேஷு காஞ்சி” எனப்படும் காஞ்சீபுரத்தில் தானே வந்து ஹஸ்திகிரியில் நின்றவனும் ஆகிய பேரருளானனின் அழகான பொருந்திய திருவடிகளைத் தனது தலைக்கு ஆபரணமாகப் பூண்டு, அவன் மீது இடைவி்டாது பக்தி கொண்டவர் எம்பெருமானார் ஆவார். இத்தகைய எம்பெருமானாரிடம் சென்று – உன் அடிக்கீழ் அமர்ந்து புகுந்தேனே – என்று கூறும்படி பொருந்தி நின்றேன்.

Currently Emperumaanaar is at Srirangam permanently. He had taken birth in Sri perumpudhoor and then resided in Kanchipuram studied under Yaadvaprakaasar about other religions, and learnt from Thirukkacchi Nambhi about our Sath sampradaya matters. In the meanwhile blessed with the special merciful anugraham of Sri Varadaraja and PerundhEvi thaayaar with the benevolent glances of Swami Alavandhaar through his vailakshaNya kataaksham. Then Emperumanaar was blessed with SadAchArya sambandham of Sri MahapoorNa [Periya Nambhi].

As if his avathAram is the all five strongest divine weapons of Sriman Narayana, he shines resplendently; He blesses the world with his most wonderful sreesookthis like the [correct] excellent commentary of Brahma soothra namely Sri Bhashya, the commentary of Bhagavad GitA, Vedaartha sangaraham, Vedanta Deepam, Saaram etc. . Amaudhaar enjoys such of Swami Emperumaanar’s past marvels and successes in three verses.


Oh my mind! (Who is always with me bonded in this material world) We have been suffering for aeons in the bodies of Devas, humans, plants (or trees), animals, et al and have been suffering in those births in samsaaric afflictions.

Today, even with no effort from us, due to some past good deed committed by us, the Lord has blessed with the sambandham of Sri Ramanuja and it is purely out of Sri Ramanujacharya’s grace. Do you realize what are we blessed with? We are blessed to stand at the Lotus Feet of Sri Ramanujacharya, who is the darling child of most beautiful strong shouldered, most auspicious -KalyANa guNagaNouga mahaarNavan- Sri Atthigiri PEraruLALan- Sri PerundEvi PiraaTTi samEtha Sri Varadan; Our Master- SarvasEshi.

Not just once; again and again, we have taken births in different wombs; and suffered in each and every one of them. But today we are blessed with something that had not happened before at all. That is the Acharya sambandham of Acharya saarvabhouman Sri Ramanuja. What a mercy of Devarajan and PerundhEvi thayaar! Right from the birth our Acharyan was blessed with the divine kataksham of Sri Varadaraja PerumAL and Sri Perundhevi Thaayaar and was able to understand the unambiguous interpretation of Sakala Veda, vedantha saasthras and sprang with full of strength and shone as the Peerless Acharya. Now we are all blessed with Swami Emperumaanaar’s presence in Srirangam due to the mercy of Varadan. What a dayA! He has become Yathiraaja here. We are able to enjoy Acharya’s lotus feet here in srirangam, oh mind! Due to his grace alone this has happened. Now we would never ever separate ourselves from this blessing. Oh mind! It is you who has co-operated with me and we are able to achieve this. Nallai nenjE! This day is the most wonderful day of all our lives some of which would have been finished in days; months or years. None to beat this day oh mind!
