I appear to be suffering as a result of all the three kinds of sins. Why do you waste your precious time indulging in worldly affairs rather than chanting the name of Ramanuja? However, since that day, Mamunigal admits to have committed several sins and repents later about his act of commission.
On account of this realisation, it is my hope that you will grant me the boon of surrender at your holy feet without any more illness in my physical frame.
Atma that cannot be destroyed is referred to as Naras. All these episodes are referred to in the line quoted above. Does it accord well when you enjoy Moksha without associating me? May the twelve thirunamams dvadhasa urdhva pundrams on your body live long! On the other hand, Ramanuja, as a sincere father and a care-taking mother will be tolerant of our inadequacies for we are ultimately his sambandhis.
There are five Jnana Indrias and five Karma Indrias. Humility and Devotion to Acharya are the Vaishnavite cult and Maamunigal gave good expression to it in his works of Yatiraja Vimsathi and Arthi Prabandham.
Accordingly Maamunigal undertook pilgrimage to holy shrines and made several innovations and reforms in the rituals at Temples. Codifying the true tenets of Vaishnavism, Maamunigal who wrote a brilliant commentary for Srivachana Bhushanam praises this work in his Upadesa Ratina Malai.
Oh Ethiraja, my famous Acharya ThiruvaymozhippiUai so well known in the Vaishnavite world as Prabandgam azhvar referred as srisaileshar has been extremely kind to me and was singularly responsible to divert my devotion to you. After praising the personality of Ramanuja, in this stanza, MaNavALa MAmunigaL glorifies his scholarly treatises to vanquish all rival schools of thought by various means. It is called the ultimate stage going by the name of saramaparvanishtai Madhurakavi Azhwar stands foremost in this category.
In this verse it is stated that the Lord discriminates by giving Moksha to select few. Another feature axrthi Maamunigal is the mention and appreciation of scholars together with their quotations wherever relevant in his writings limiting unlike others who will make only cursory references.
This is an allegoric reference. Even with such conviction the Lord would not tolerate my sins which are of such unimaginable magnitude. Only by your recommendation I must be przbandham from my sins and sent to Moksha. In order to access the grace of Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam, we need to sever all connections with this world and reach out to Him like Nammazhwar does in the 28 th verse of Thiruvirutham puNNanthuzhAmE poruneerth prabanrham.
This Atma soul after it leaves the body is guided by celestial agencies like Archis etc.
For this reason alone, you should overlook my limitations and sins and put up with my repeated requests to bless me with salvation. Only such people who do not associate are fit to receive our kainkaryam.
Sri Mudaliandan Swami Thirumaligai
It was Srisailesha, our Acharya in order to liberate us, we the eternal sinners taught us the esence of Acharya Bhakthi and diverted us towards Ramanuja to be his devotees. I am not able to understand this. Only some are given as illustrations. Even though I was a sinner due to wickedness as a result of Karma, Oh Ethiraja! It should not be confused as contradictory.
Oh Ramanuja, I keep advising others about the actions that are forbidden according to the sastrams.
Maamunigal himself gives expression to this in his commentary on Mumukshuppadi. It is the Acharya who taught us this link for our salvation. No verse captures this thought better than the current one, where, zarthi advises what spiritual seekers have to do. In this verse, Mamunigal refers to three types of sins: As a next step you must help me to get rid of this aarthi wordly life.
Kindly save me from this distress. When such is the case, how is it you alone enjoy in Moksha without my association never thinking of me. The samsaric pulls, which are a result of our previous karma, can at some times be too strong for us to condition and discipline our mind to practically realize the truth learnt through upadhesam. Mangalam to such a great person.
If anybody were to redeem you logically he should be out of this zone to lift you up.
