Please help me to overcome this distress. However, out of ignorance, I have been drifting aimlessly in the direction of my sensory pulls. It is well known that Ramanuja formulated Vaishnavite doctrines in accordance with the views expressed by Nammazhvar in His prabandhams.

How can he help me? Forever keep thinking about my father Ramanuja. In this work Maamunigal conveyed the thoughts of Purvachaarya fully and hence it is impossible to quote the texts of the thoughts of all Purvachaaryas.

Therefore, I urge you to absolve me of my sins and help me focus my mind to unconditionally serve your feet.

In this verse, Mamunigal praises the scholarly genius of Ramanuja who was instrumental in establishing the supremacy of Vishishtadvaita over other competing philosophical schools. We find in all Vaishnavite Temples sadaari symbolise representation of the Holy feet of the Lord being placed on the heads of devotees.

But that should be no bar for Ramanuja to redeem him.

As I enjoy being the object of grace of Ramanuja, Lord Ranganatha mounted on Garuda will appear before me when my soul departs its body at the time of my death like dark clouds appearing on the hillock of Meru.

He authored this prabandham solely for prapannas, who, when caught in the quagmire of samsaric afflictions, find themselves unsuitable for performing gnana yoga, karma yoga, bhakti yoga or sharanagathi. Please help me get rid of such forbidden actions and focus my mind on you.

Arthi Prabandham

Even though I was a sinner due to wickedness as a result of Karma, Oh Ethiraja! Hence it is proposed to touch on the main aspect leaving the readers who are interested to learn more to study the commentaries on this work. Pillai Lockacharya explains Her role in several ways. Guru matham is driven out far away from fame. Oh Ramanuja, have a look at my nature! The idea conveyed is clear. In this praandham, Mamunigal refers to three types of sins: It is the day when Divya Deshams like Srirangam prospered.


From the day your ever-merciful grace fell on prabaandham, I realised my duty of complete surrender to you.

Maamunigal himself gives expression to this in his commentary on Mumukshuppadi. In this verse, Mamunigal explains the prabandhma that the jivatma aartyi to reach paramapadham by explaining the pit stops it encounters enroute to Srivaikuntam. We have very many verses of Purvacharyas like the ones quoted above.

Neem leaves even though sour in taste are converted as a side vegetable dish to be relished with meals in a certain context. Oh Ramanuja whom I consider my father and my motherbless me and quickly deliver me from this world. Usually Acharyas will not indulge in self-glorification and so Maamunigal will be the last person to do so.
