2. கற் றதனாலாய பயதனன்தகால் வாலறிவன்

நட்ட்ராள் ததாழான் அர் எனின் .

Kattrathanalaya Payanenkol valarivan

Nattralthozhan Ar Enin

The all pervading God is the embodiment of all knowledge and excellence. So the
knowledge ,position , wealth and all other worldly requirements are secondary to is.

every being as the Jivatma. Those who think , meditate and live in God will never meet
with any sorrows in life. They will experience a heavenly bliss and happiness within.

மாண்டும் இடும் மப இல.

Mandum Idumpai Ila

This verse is like a continuation of the previous one. The Lord have no likes or dislikes.
So those who constantly meditate on him will never come across any difficulties in their
life. When you think of the Lord always and completely surrender to him, he will take
care of all your requirements.

even if they do something wrong out of their ignorance, they will never be affected by
the result of that deed.

மனக்கவமல மாற் றல் அரிது

Thanakuvamai Illathan thalsernthark kallal

Manakkavalai Mattral Aritu.

God is incomparable to any thing in this world since every thing emerged from Him. He
is the only solace for all miseries of life. So unless one has devotion to God he will not
be able to face the problems of his life and solve the same successfully.

the Lord Almighty without which it is not possible. We have to turn inward and search for
the indwelling being the Lord to cross this ocean of worldly difficulties .

தாமள வணங் காத் தமல
Kolil Porulil Kugamilave Engunathan
Thalai Vanangat talai.

One who never bow down to the Lord’s lotus feet, he is like blind even if he has eyes
and deaf even if he has ears because he is not seeing the Lord or hearing about him.
His head which never bows down to Gods’s lotus feet is of no use. It is profitless like a
sense without the power of sensation,

10.பிறவி தபருங் கடல் நீ ந்துவர் நீ ந்தார்

இமறவன் அடி றெராதார்

Piravi Perungadal Nenthuvar Neenthaar

Iraivan Adi Seraathar.

Only those who think of God constantly, meditate Him , bow down to Him will be able to
cross the ocean of the world (of birth and death). Salvation or Kaivalya is possible only
to them who find God in every thing and everything in God.
