Ramanuja Nutranthathi – 66



“அகலகில்லேன் இறையும் என்று அலர்மேல் மங்கை உறை மார்பா”, என்று கூறும்படி, பெரியபிராட்டியுடன் இணைந்தே சேதனர்களைக் கைக்கொள்ளும் ஸர்வேச்வரன், தனது உயர்ந்த இடமாகிய பரமபதத்தை யாருக்கு அளிக்கிறான் என்றால் – சிறந்த ஞானம் கொண்டு பக்தி உடையவர்களாகவும், அந்தப் பக்தி காரணமாக நாள் முழுவதும் அவனை எண்ணியபடி கைங்கர்யம் செய்பவர்களுக்கே ஆகும். இப்படி உள்ளபோது உடையவர் செய்தது என்ன? மிகவும் தீய பாவங்கள் பலவும் செய்தபடி உள்ள எனது மனதில் இருந்த பாவங்கள் செய்யும் எண்ணங்களை அடியுடன் நீக்கினார். இதன் மூலம் பரமபதம் கிட்டும்படிச் செய்தார். இதுவே அவரது கருணை மூலமாக, அவர் நமக்குச் செய்யும் உபாயமாகும்.

Amudhanaar mentioned that the world was benefited. That benefits are: Bhakti yogam and Prapatti [or saranagathi]. When one reaches and surrenders to the Lord Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan He would enable the person to perform [as he wants] either bhakti yogam or Prapatti to ultimately attain Him. However, when one considers Sri Ramanuja as the only refuge, Swami Himself will perform Prapatti for the disciple as Acharya nishtai and save him. Thus one attain moksham effortlessly through Ramanuja – says Amudhanaar. Example is he himself.


The manner in which Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan grants mOksham is: When jnAnam blooms, develops and matures into Bhakti and desire / prEmam on the Lord, and when one gets an urgent intense desire (tvarai) to see and enjoy the lord and laments every second and every moment as to when he is going to obtain the blissful kaimkaryam at the Feet of the Lord with great satisfaction and devotion. When such a situation arises in him, Sri Ramanujacharya (The King among saints – the One who gracefully removed the ills from this lowly self- adiyEn’s heart) blesses us him, the Bhaagyam of holding the Lotus Feet of his (Sri Ramnuja’s) and thereby grants them his krupai (grace) as the first dividend and mercy to enable him to be granted mOksham by Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan.

maadhavan– Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan

vaanam koduppathu– grants moksham [through] jnAnam – with crystal clear knowledge about sowseelya, sowlabhya, Vaathsalya, Swamithva guNAs of the Lord

kanindha– seasoned or refined or matured

nalam koNdu– into bhakti or intense devotion

naaLthORum– everyday and every moment uninterruptedly

naibhavarkku– melts singing in praise of the Lord [with tears in his eyes]

valvinaiyEn– in this lowliest self- who has been committing only cruel mahaa paapams since time immemorial

manatthil eenam kadnidha– removed and cleaned the follies and dirt from my mind completely

Iraamanausan– Acharya saarvabhouman Sri Ramanujacharya [EmperumAnAr] a dhaanam koduppadhu- granting the same mOksham [that the Lord grants] to me too than

thagavu ennum koduuthE– is only due to Ramanuja’s extreme dayA on me. .

When one takes refuge at the feet of EmperumAn Sriya: Pathi Sriman Narayanan, He [like what KaNNan advised Arjuna] lets the bhakthas perform karma, jnAna yoga and then take up bhakti yogam. They enjoy seeing His dhivya mangaLa vigraham and would like to never ever stay away from seeing Him everyday and every moment. They are finally granted moksham by the Lord [after few lives or in the same birth itself depending on their karma accruals].

Whereas if one takes refuge at the feet of EmperumAnAr Sri Ramanujacharya [on the contrary], he knows this guy does not and will have the qualification or capacity to perform the pure bhakti yogam and meditate uninterruptedly the lotus feet of Sriman Narayanan and thus effortlessly he grants them mOksham through performance of Acharya nishtai. He grants them due to his extreme dayA on his sishyas.

When one is taking up acharya nishtai and considers acharyan alone can save me and surrenders to his lotus feet, Sri Ramanuja [acharya himself] performs the saranagathi [on his behalf] to the Lord for grating the sishya mOksham. When the appeal comes from acharya none other than Sri Ramanuja, would the Lord say anything else except granting moksham then and there [at the end of his current life]. Ramanuja knows that this person [Amudhanaar says about himself] can not and will not be able to perform bhakti yogam; and removed the ills and dirts from my mind completely the ills are: desire; anger; jealousy, atheistic attitude, disrespect towards bhAgawathAs [even if one is devoted to Bhagawaan etc], mind-set that only we alone can get moksham by our own efforts etc… These are the ills – Sri Uttamur Swami enlists. Since Amudhanaar take refuge at the feet of KooratthAzhwAn [Sri Ramanujacharya’s sishya], he has got ridden of all these ills effortlessly.
