1.  "Aaraa anudhE! AdiyEn udalam ninpaal anbaayE" - Aaaraa amudhE! Oh
insatiable nectar! EmperumaanE! What a Divinely Beautiful form is Your
body! However many times I enjoy that naver satisfies me, Lord! You are
giving me immense satisfaction that is limitless and unbounded. Due to my
love for You, my physical body also has been melting along with my heart
longing to see You. Oh ThirumaalE! You have been literally killing me with
Your azhagu; I have been blessed to enjoy here at Thirukkudanthai by
seeing Your Most Beautiful form;  ( ItIhyam: Once, Loka saarangha muni,
was at somewhere in the North as a priest in some Lakshmi narayan temple.
Once, a Srivaishnava went to North on a pilgrimage tour and happened to
meet our Loka saarngha muni, Muni asked if there is any special news from
South. That guy said "There is an excellent set of Pasurams written by Sri
sadgopar, which every sri vaishnava enjoys reciting" and even sang this
"Aaraa vamudhE!" pasuram.  Saarangha muni was simply overwhelmed with the
beauty and admired such a beautiful, apt name in addition to Bhagawaan's
1000 NAMES. It appears he started proceeding to down south and settled at
Srirangam immediately after. Then is the history about his lifting
ThiruupANAzhwAr on his shoulders.)

semmaa kamalam sezhunNeer misaikkaNmalarum* thirukkutandhai*
ammaa malarkkaN vaLarginRaanE!* ennNaan seykEnE!*.	5.8.2

2.  EmmanE! My Lord! You have shown me Your beauty and captured my heart;
You have enabled me to enjoy Your Most Beautiful Divine form of Your
ThirumEni; Whatever forms You take, They are all due to Your mercy and
dayA to save the devotees; Oh EmperumaanE! Who looks like a Big, Beautiful
Lion! Oh Thirukkudanthai BhagawaanE, The One who is lying down with His
Red Lotus eyes closed! Please show Your mercy one me and see me with Your
Most Beautiful SenthaamaraikaaNgaL (Red Lotus Eyes);

ennNaan seykEn! yaarE kaLaikaN?* ennai en seykinRaay?*

3.  "ennaan seghEn? YaarE kaLaigaN?" To hold Your Lotus Feet, there is
nothing that I can do; what is the link between the action and me? Who is
the support for me except You? (Means; those who are drowning can NOT be
saved by the fellow co-drowners); Are You rying to keep me away by showing
other "things"? You are there so near; and it is You who should come by
Yourself; Are You to come by my asking for it? (Peryaavaacchaan PiLLai
says: I do not want Your coming for my words or for others'. You should
come by Yourself;) Oh PerumaaLE! The One who is having His Yoga nithrA at
Thirukkudanthai! You should shower Your mercy and grace on me to let me
hold Your Lotus Feet and keep thinking of that while this Athman stays in
this body; as long as "It" stays here, I should only stay at Your Lotus
Feet holding Them tight. (In this Pasuram, Dearest Sisters and Brothers,
"en naan seighEn? What can I do? There is nothing that I can do; I am
helpless- aakinchanyam. " yaarE kaLaigaN?" Who will save me? - ananya
gahtitvam. Ennai en seighinRaay? What are You going to do with me? You are
to save me; (Rakshathvam- SarvEshwaranE rakshakan)

nalaththaal mikkaar kutandhaik kitandhaay!* unnaik kaaNpaan _naan-
alappaay*aagaasaththai nOkki* azhuvan thozhuvanE*.	5.8.4

4.  EmperumaanE! Your Most ausipcious attributes and Your shrEya are never
ending; and will never vanish; Whoever is he, for whatever qualities or
powers they have; compared to Yours, it is nothing and they can NOT EVEN
MEASURE YOUR guNAs and keerthi. Absolutely none; Oh Chief of everyone!
Thirukkudanthai PerumaanE! Without seeing You, I am crying looking at the
sky and am paying obeisance to the sky looking at the clouds (like a

azhuvan thozhuvan aadik kaaNpan* paadi alaRRuvan*
thazhuval vinaiyaal pakkam nOkki* naaNik kavizhndhiruppan*
sezhuvoN pazhanak kutandhaik kitandhaay!* sendhaamaraik kaNNaa!*
thozhuvanEnai uNnadhaaL sErum* vagaiyE soozhkaNtaay*.	5.8.5

5.  EmperumaanE! Like the children crying for their mother, I have started
crying for You. I have realised in my mind and paid obeisance to You. Even
then, my desires are not fulfilled yet; Somehow, I wish to attain You and
hence, I will dance foolishly and sing with full of prEmam for You; "Vaa,
Vaa" (Come here; Come here) like that I will be calling You with madness;
Why all this? My love for You is the reason and still my karmic diseases
are keeping You away from me and stop me from hugging You tightly, Lord!
My bhakti also has become my karmA and that has been chasing me; I look at
all directions with "naaNam" (shyness) whether You are coming; Oh Lord,
who lies down at Thirukkudanthai! You only should show me the way to reach
Your Lotus Feet.

soozhkaNtaay en thollai vinaiyai aRuththu* un adisErum-

yaazhiNnisaiyE! amuthE!* aRivin payanE! ariyERE!*.	5.8.6

6.  Oh Lord, who looks like the Male Lion! You only should gracefully show
me the way to attain Your Lotus Feet by making me get rid of my karmic
diseases; Even after knowing the way to attain Your Feet, I have been
feeding my five sense organs and how long should I be suffering like this
my EmperumaanE! Oh Thiruukudanthai Lord, The Place where Your devotees
stay! Oh Chief of Nitya sUris! Oh Aaraa amudhA! Oh jnAnaswarUpI! I SIMPLY
CAN NOT LIVE without You; by being away from You; You only shall lead me
to the way to reach Your Feet.

7.  Oh Male Lion like Lord! The beauty of Golden Form! Red Lotus Eyed,
Black Cloud- like EmperumaanE! Oh My Father, The Four shouldered Lord! You
showed me the way to join You; You are so merciful! Oh Thirukkudanthai
ThirumaalE! Please offer me Your Lotus Feet and save me from these births!

kaLaivaay thunpam kaLaiyaa thozhivaay* kaLaikaN maRRilEn*

iLaiyaathu unathaaL orungap pitiththu* pOtha isai nNeeyE*.	5.8.8

8.  Whether You remove my sorrows or not; Whatever You do, is Your duties
and work; "You are the only means for me"- in that statement, I do not
have a single iota of doubt; (On the contrary, it has only been
increasing!) Hence, I do not look for any one else's helps, except You; Oh
BhagawaanE!  The One who has the ChakrA in His hand! Oh Lord, who shows
Himself so gracefully at Thirukkudanthai! Oh SakalakalA vallavA! The time
for my jIvan to leave this body has come; At least in this anthim kaalam,
You should bless me to reach Your Feet without delay.

asaivil ulagam paravak kitandhaay!* kaaNa vaaraayE*.	5.8.9

9.  Without making me wait for a long time, You let me join to serve You
as Your eternal servant, by getting me out of these Samsaaric ills; Oh
EmperumaanE! The Chief of Nitya sUris! What a wonder and How You let me
desire Your Lotus Feet when I was actually NOT desiring for Them! (means:
It is Emperumaan's grace that one thinks of  His Lotus Feet) Aren't You
the Chief of DevAs, too who are immortal and also the Chief of VishvaksEnA
(the chief of dEvAs)! Oh mummUrthiyE! Oh EmperumaanE, The One who is lying
down at Thirukkudanthai to remove the sorrows of His devotees! You should
gracefully come here to let me enjoy You and get saved!

vaaraa varuvaay varumen maayaa!* maayaa moorththiyaay*
aaraavamuthaay adiyEn aavi* agamE thiththippaay*
theeraavinaigaL theera ennai aaNtaay!* thirukkutandhai-
ooraa!* unakkaatpattum *adiyEn innam uzhalvEnO?*.	(2) 5.8.10

10.  Oh EmperumaanE! You are letting me enjoy only in my mind and NOT with
my eyes! Oh Wonderful Lord of Thirukkudanthai! Nitya Divya mangaLa vigrahA
rUpA! The Most sweetest insatiable nectar! (AarA amudhE!) You have
captured me and removed my incurable diseases of karmA and past actions;
You have accepted my servitude; Even after being accepted by You, should I
still be suffering here, BhagawaanE!

uzhalai enpin pEychchi mulaiyoodu* avaLai uyiruNtaan*
kazhalkaL avaiyE saraNaaka koNta* kurukoorch chatagOpan*
kuzhalin maliyach sonna* OraayiraththuL ippaththum*
mazhalai theera vallaar* kaamar maanEy  nOkkiyarkkE*.(2)	5.8.11

11.  Sri SadagOpar has caught hold of The Lotus Feet of KaNNan, (who
sucked the life of bhUthanai, the rAkshasi, along with her breast milk,
who came in the guise of a lady to offer the infant KaNNan her poisonous
breast milk to kill Him) and sung thousand pAsurams about KaNNan, which
are sweeter than the music of flute; Out of those 1000, the readers of
these ten are so dear and sweet to SrI Vaishnavas.
