Ramanuja Nutranthathi – 105



அழகான அலைகளை உடைய திருப்பாற்கடலில் உறங்குவது போன்று யோகநித்திரை செய்யும் ஸர்வேச்வரனின் திருவடிகளில் என்றும் பிரியாமல், அவனது குணத்தில் ஈடுபட்டு, “ஜிதந்தே” என்று கூறியபடி சிலர் இருப்பர். இப்படிப்பட்ட ஞானிகளின் மனதில் எப்போதும் கொண்டாடப்படுபவர்; வேதம் ஓதுபவர்கள் என்றும் போற்றும்படி உள்ள திருவடிகளைக் கொண்டவர் எம்பெருமானார் ஆவார். இப்படிப்பட்ட எம்பெருமானாரை எப்போதும் வணங்கியபடி, அவரது புகழைப் போற்றியபடி, கடல் ஓசை போன்று ஆரவாரம் செய்தபடி ஆடும் அடியவர்கள் உள்ள இடமே எனக்கு உயர்ந்த இடங்களாகும்.

The anubhavam of EmperumAnAr is grander than that of EmperumAn – you mention. Is it a fact or it is just your mOham [love] for His Holiness Sri Ramanujacharya?


EmperumAnAr Sri Ramanujacharya shines with paripoorNa jnAnam and bhakti towards the Lord’s Lotus Feet and is residing in the hearts of all those who immerse themselves the most wonderful kalyANa guNAs of the Lord Sriman Narayanan; who is having His yoga nithrA in ThiruppARkadal [Milky ocean[, surrounded by noisy and dense waves; EmperumAnAr’s lotus feet are worshipped by the vedic scholars; For me- the place I would like to stay is where such greatest bhAgawathas live, who always utter Ramanuja thirunaamam and who, with the divine wonderful anubhavams and goose pimples, prostrate at the feet of EmperumAnAr Ramanujacharya.

sezhum thirai paaRkadal– In ThiruppARkadal [Milky ocean] full of dense waves

kaNN thuyil– having His yoga nithrA

maayan– the most wonderful and mysterious Lord Sriya:Pathi Sriman Narayanan whose only concern was on protection and saving the Jagath [Universe];

thiruvaDi keezh– the Lotus feet [of Sriman Narayanan]

vizhundhiruppaar– those who worship [the Lotus Feet of the Lord]

nenjil mEvum naljnAni– He is a great jnAni; He is our dearest acharya- like that these devotees of the Lord think [about Ramanuja] in their mindsnalvEdhiyargaL

thozhi thiru paadhan Iraamanusan– the Lotus Feet of Sri

Ramanujacharya– where great vedanthic and vedic scholars fall at and pay their obeisance;

thozhum periyOr– such greatest acharya Ramanuja is sought after and worshipped by these bhAgawathas [mahaans]

yezhundhu iraitthu aadum idam– such greatest mahaans jump with joy of having been and being with Ramanuja and praise him with full voice and ecstasy; dance singing his glories and that is the place where adiyEn [I] would like to

iruppidam– stay

ThiruppaRkadal is the moola sthAnam for all vibhava avathArams. Those who are able to go there and pay their obeisance and fall at His Feet are only few Devas, deva rishis, Sage Vyasa, Sanaka muni e al. Even in their minds, our Paramcharyan Ramanuja is kept and revered.

KaNNan praises Veda Vyasa for his compilation of Brahma soothram. For my Brahma sutra which is based on Vedas and Upanishads, our Ramanuja has brilliantly written the most unambiguous and wonderful commentary exactly reflecting what I had in mind in his Sri Bhashyam…- admires Veda Vyasa and keeps Ramanuja always in his heart with full of love.

When the Truthful saint appears, the whole world would pay their praNamams. The world will also pay its attention more to the God and immerse itself in bhakti towards the Lord.

Such Ramanuja is also worshipped in Srirangam and other divya desams, by vedic scholars and great mahaans flocking to him. The bhAgawathas and disciples jump with joy uttering his name and enjoy dancing and singing his glories. Wherever they sing, wherever they dance, I would like to go and join them in their celebration and praises. I would also dance and sing. It need not be a temple or divya desam. Where such BhAgawathas reside, and celebrate, I would like to reside and join their celebrations. Hence that is the Divya Desam for me.
