In this stanza,from the two addresses in vocative case
PEY PENNE! and NAYAKA PPENPILLAY! which are diametrically
opposite in meaning,we are to understand that they are
said out of love and affection for the sleeping girl.
Whatever may be the apparent contradiction,the inner
feeling is most important while moving with Sri Vaishna
In the 6000-Padi commentary we find very interesting and
enlightening comments and to illustrate them an episode
narrated with exquisite charm.Having woken up a handful
of girls Andal could have proceeded on to Krishna.Why go
to EVERY house ? If one is a Sri Vaishnava he should
think of the welfare of ALL- not just a few.Not even a
single girl should lose the golden opportunity of getting
the grace of Sri Krishna. A man's relationship with
Sriman Narayana is true only if he rejoices at the good
luck of another man as if it were his own son's.If
he fails to feel that way he is no Sri vaishnava.
ALKONDAVILLY JEEYAR,a sincere pupil of SRI RAMANUJA
once met in Sri Rangam NANJEEYAR,the disciple of
PARASARA BHATTAR.The former exclaimed," O Jeeyar!
Really I have not developed a taste for Bhagavad
Vishaya (i.e., God)." Nanjeeyar was amazed and asked
"How is this possible? you are the faithful student
of Sri Ramanuja,serving him assiduously - still you
say this ?" The former said," If a man has real taste
for Bhagavan he must enjoy the sweet company of His
devotees.If not he is no Sri Vaishnava.Have we
developed that pleasurable attitude towards Sri
Vaishnavas ? Hence I say so."
Unless the meeting,mingling and deriving supreme
satisfaction and happiness in the company of Bhagavatas
are secured here in this world (which is the intensive
training ground for our life in Sri Vaikuntha),the
Moksha will not be delectable.NAMMAZHWAR says at the
end of Tiruvaymozhi,"ADIYAARODU IRUNDAMAI". He aspired
not for the mere union of the Lord but for the same
in the company of His devotees,which alone would
make it delectable.
