vAmanan maN

Sri:
Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:

On my first day of being at India/Thiruvallikkeni, on May 20, 2010, a thought occured to adiyEn.

As is common here, we lost power for several hours. The Corporation crew was doing their job of digging up the road trying to fix the problem.

Turns out the issue is a break/leak in the line somewhere. So, how do they find out where the problem is. Of course, they dig the road up. But still, how to find out exactly where the leak is.

I was told that they smell the mud and where they can smell burnt mud, they suspect the leak is there.

At that point, adiyEn thought of Azhvar’s verse - “maNNai irundhu thuzhAvi vAmanan maN idhu ennum”.

Thiruvaymozhi 4-4-1:

maNNai irundhu thuzhAvi vAmanan maN idhuvennum

viNNaith thozhudhu avan mEvu vaikundham enRu kai kAttum

kaNNaiyuNNIr malga ninRu kadalvaNNan ennum annE! en

peNNaip perumayal seydhARku en seygEn? peyvaLaiyIrE!

Idu vyakhyanam for this states:

“avan ezhundharuLina pinbu avan pakkal bakthiyAlE vidamAttAmE ammaNNai mOndhu koNdu kidappan enRAniRE vishvAmithran.”

“adiyilE piRandhudaiya gandhamanRO ennA ninRAL.”
