Ramanuja Nutranthathi – 69



ப்ரளயத்தின்போது மனம் மற்றும் அனைத்து இந்த்ரியங்களும் அழிந்து, நாசம் அடைந்து, அசித் பொருள்களுடன் இணைந்தபடி கிடந்தது. அந்தக் காலகட்டத்தில் இப்படிப்பட்ட மனம் மற்றும் இந்த்ரியங்களை எனக்கு அளித்த திருவரங்கன், தனது அபயஹஸ்தத்தை மட்டுமே காண்பித்தபடி இருந்தான்; தனது திருவடிகளில் சரணம் என்று என்னைச் சேர்த்துக் கொள்ளவில்லை. அந்தச் சூழ்நிலையில் எனது தந்தையான எம்பெருமானார், ஸ்ரீபெரும்பூதூரில் அவதரித்து, நான் வசித்து வந்த திருவரங்கத்தைத் தேடி வந்தார். என்னை வாரி எடுத்து, என்னிடமிருந்து எதனையும் எதிர்பாராமல், ஸ்ரீரங்கநாதனே அளிக்காமல் இருந்த அவனது திருவடிகளை எனக்கு அளித்தார். இப்படியாகப் பகவானே எடுக்கத் தயங்கிய என்னை, தான் எடுத்துக் கொண்டார்.

KaNNan blessed us with GiTA saasthrA only for the sake of everyone. When such is the case why did Ramanuja alone interpret in the right manner and crystal clearer manner? Amudhanaar replies in different manner: when the Lord grants us all the sense organs, buddhi and manas for everyone to get saved. Though this is the case, why did I not realize this earlier and I was saved only after Ramanuja came on his own accord to save me! I had never ever realized the means before.


SarvEshwaran Sriya:Pathi Sriman Naryanan, out of His own grace and upakaaram, blesses us (the dormant ones) before the creation, with the requisites (karaNa~ngaL) to become the living souls. But He did not grant us the “saraNa~ngaL” the Lotus feet. But My Father- Sri Ramanujacharya, Emperumaanaar- in order to save me from this samsaara saagaram- the Great PraLayam- blessed me today and showed me with the Lotus feet of his (Sri Ramanuja’s) as the means. What an upakaaram!

mun naaL– during the praLayam [dissolution]

chinthaiyOdu karaNangaL yaavum– the senses, mind and

buddhi sidhanidhu– destroyed

andham uRRu aazndhadhu kaNdu– jeevathmas were lying dormant

avai anRu– [those senses, mind and buddhi that day]

en thanakku– have been granted to me by

thandha arangan– Sri Rangan Himself and He too

than saraN thandhilan– did not grant His Lotus Feet as the means to me.

Enthai– My father Sri Ramanuja alone

Adhu thandhu– on his own accord came to me to show them and grant those feet

inRu vandhu ennai yedutthanan– in this birth saved me then and there.

Though the limbs, senses, mind and buddhi were granted to me, they were the hurdles and unless these hurdles are removed, the purpose for which these were given to us, will not be served. But if one removes these hurdles and saves, it is certainly a grand thing. Thus though GiTA was blessed by KaNNan, it was wrongly interpreted and the fruits could not be obtained for which the GiTA was born. After Sri Ramanuja’s clear GitA bhAshyam, everyone is now able to comprehend the gitA’s inner meanings. That is the greatness of Our Sri Ramanuja.

The summary and essence of GitA: [from GitArtha sangraham] Karumamum jnAnamun koNdu yezhun kaadhaluku Orilakku enRu aRumaRai uchchiyuL aadharitthu Odhum Brahmam thirumagaLOdu varunm thirumaal enRu thaanuraiththaan dharumam ugandha dhananjayanukku avan saarathiyE.

The Lord, who acted as the Charioteer for Arjuna, Himself taught him [Arjuna] who was desirous of Knowing the righteousness: That only Thirumaal [Sriman Narayanan] manifesting with ThirumaGal [Sri Mahalakshmi], the Supreme Soul, difficult of attainment, praised and explained by Vedantha difficult to be understood, Is the only target [of attainment] through bhakti yogam [path based on bhakti ceaselessly and uninterruptedly] which is practiced with [preceded by adherence to KarmaYogam] path based on performance of prescribed deeds] and jnAna yogam [path based on wisdom and enjoyment of the Soul].
