ThiruviNNagarappan Thirumanjanak Kattiyam


Sri (Dr.) V. Sadagopan


Fri, 6 Nov 1998

Dear BhakthAs :

During the occasion of the SamarpaNam of ThiruvAbharaNam for ThiruviNNagarappan at Oppiliappan Koil on October 11 , a thought crossed my mind as I enjoyed the Thirumanjana mahOthsavam for the Moolavar .

The thought was this : Sri Ranganathan has the most beautiful Thirumanjanak Kattiyam from his purOhithar , ParAsara Bhattar. Sri VeerarAghavan has his lovely Kattiyam for Thirumanjanam thanks to the loving devotion of His paramparai Trustees ,the rever ed Azhagiya

Singhars . Our PerumAL at ThiruviNNagar has no Kattiyam todate to accompany His beautiful NeerAttam . Although it may be impertinent on my part to engage in creating a Thriumanjanak Kattiyamin the context of the contributions of the great giants of our sampradhAyam , I thought it will be acceptable to Him as the prattling from an affectionate child of His .

Therefore I have emboldened myself to engage in this Kaimkaryam for my Kula Dhaivam .

There is another pressing reason for hastening with this Kaimkaryam .Our annual Thirumanjana Kaimkaryam on the VidaayERRi dinam at the end of the ThirukkalyANa Uthsavam in Iyppasi falls on Novemebr 11 , next Wednesday . My father has written in the Koi l records that his descendants should perform this Kaimkaryam forever . It is our Bhaagyam to do so . This Kattiyam writing Kaimkaryam fits into this overall context .May Sri Bhumi Devi

SamEtha Sri Oppilaippan accept this kaimkaryam from this seelamillA siRiyOn and give me the insight and energy to engage in this Kaimkaryam .With the paraphrased prayer of Swami Desikan etched in Sri Abheethi Sthva slOkam , I pray to Sri Bhu Vallabhan to accept this bold effort begun without reflection on my totally inadequate qualifications to engage in such a stupendous task. I pray to Him to accept this foolish offering of a mandha Mathi as His Archanam and AarAdhanam out of His own natural compassi on for the mistakes made by His loving children .Swami Desiakan's prayer in this context is as follows :

atharkitha hitha ahitha krama visEsham aarabhyathE

tadh api uchitham archanam parigruhANa ( mannAtha )

Here Swami says at the outset of his sthuthi on Sri RanganaathA that he has not sorted out

in a logical fashion the benefits and ill effects of the effort that he has started as a person of "average intellect" limited by thriguNAs . He appeals however to Sri RanganathA to accept even this imperfect effort as His AarAdhanam out of H is svaabhAvika DayA guNam .

Following the path shown by our AchAryAs, this Kattiyam for Sri OppilAappan will

be interspersed with the MangalAsAsanams of AchAryAs and AzhwArs .May they all

bless this Kaimkaryam !

(Dear Bhaktas: )I will have the Kattiyam portion first and will include meaning/comments

in paranthesis after each of the Kattiyam sections .

Sri Oppilaippan Thirumanjanak Kattiyam


1 . Jaya Vijayee Bhava ! Sri Bhagavan NaarAyaNa !

PanchAvathAra ! Swamin ! paraak ! BhU Vallabha ParAk !

( Hail to Thee ! Oh Lord NaarAyaNA ! May Thou be victorious !Oh Lord , who took five manifestations at ThiruviNNagar as Yennappan , Ponnappan , Mutthappan, MaNiappan and ThiruviNNagrappan ! Oh the supreme Master of the Universe ! Hark ! Oh dear one to Bhumi Piraatti ! Hark ! This type of announcements is used at Royal courts by VaithALikAs or KattiyakkArars to announce the presence/arrival of Kings. Our Lord is King of Kings and Deva Raajan . Hence , such a Kattiyam is a fitting start ).

2 .sankalpa kalpalathikAm avadhim kshamAyA :

svEcchA VarAhamahisheem sulabhAnukampAm I

Visvasya mAtharam akinchana kAmadhEnum

VisvambharAm asaraNa: SaraNam prapadhyE II

( It is common tradition to salute the PirAtti of the Lord first because of Her PurushkAram or power to plead with Her Lord to pardon our gross sins and grant us Moksham . Here the Prayer Of Swami Desikan to Bhumi DEvi in his BhU sthuthi is included . This is the first slOkam of BhU sthuthi of Swami Desikan .

Meaning of this slOkam : Bhumi DEvi is like a Kalpaka creeper that grants the wishes desired by those who areHer adiyArs ; She puts up with the trespasses of adiyArs and forgives them. In this matter , She is the limit of forbearance .She readily grant s Her grace to Her adiyArs. She stands in the role of Mother of the universe and treats all chEthanAs with equal affection .She is a veritable wish granting KaamadhEnu for those , who perform Prapatthi to Her , when they are unable to undertake Bhakthi Yo gam as their preferred route for their salvation .I ,Swami Desikan, who has no other succor surrender unto Her with the above

auspicious kalyANa guNAs )

3.Srimacch SaDAri Kalivairi Mahath SarObhi:

nAthAgamAntha gurumukhya gurUtthamaisccha I

samvAnchithAthisayitha priya mangaLou Thau

Bhuvallabhasya charaNou SaraNam prapathyE II

( This is the eighth slokam of Sri Oppiliappan Prapatthi sthuthi . The saraNAgathan says here :

" I perform Prapatthi at the sacred feet of ThiruviNNagarappan , which have received the exalted mangaLAsAsanams of NammAzhwAr, Thirumangai ,Poygai AzhwAr , pEy AzhwAr , Naatha Muni and NigamAntha MahA Desikan ".)

4.yaavadh AvarthathE chakram yaavathee cha VasundharA I

thaavath tvamiha Sarvasya SwAmithvam anuvarthaya II

( This is the twelfth slOkam of Sri Oppilaippan MangaLam . The author prays to the Lord :

" Oh ThiruviNNagarappA ! May Thou Lord over this universe as Sarva Swaami and protect all janthus as long as there are Chandran,Sooryan and the stars ).


5.udhyath kOti divaakarEndhu subhagam peethAmBharAlankrutham

naanAbhUshaNa bhUshitham navaghana shyAmam prasannAnam I

lAvaNyAmbhunidhim nirasthalavaNam Srisankha chakrAnjitham

SrivaikuntapurAdhipam Subhatanum BhUmyA: pathim samsrayE II

( This is the first slOkam of Sri Oppiliappan"s

SuprabhAtham and also serves as a dhyAna slOkam .

Meaning: I worship always the Lord of Bhumi Devi, ThiruviNNagarappan , who appears in effulgence like crores of rising Suns ; He is resplendent with all kinds of Jewelery and is bedecked in a beautiful peethAmbharam ; He has the dark bluish hue remindi ng one of the dark clouds of the rainy season and has a cool countenance , which is a treasure house

of beauty ; He adorns Sudarsanam and Paanchajanyam in His upper hands and destroys completely the sins of those who worship Him ; He has banished any desire for

salt in His naivEdhyams consistent with the promise He made to Sage MarkandEyA to win the hand of his daughter in marriage at Tulasi Vanam ).

6. taapAn kshipan prasavithA sumanOgaNAnAm

pracchAya seethaLataLa: pradisan phalAni I

tvath samgamAdh bhavathi Maadhavi labdhapOsha:

saakhA satairadhigathO HarichandhanOsou II

( This is the seventh slOkam of Bhu Sthuthi of Swami Desikan .Here, the famous AchAryA points out that ThiruviNNagarappan's glories grow multifold as a result of His union with Bhumi Devi. Swami compares the Lord to a Harichandhanaa tree saluted by hun dreds of Veda saakhAs and points out that this wish granting tree becomes reinfoced in its power to bless the prapannAs due to its association with Bhumi DEvi.There is only one thAyAr at

ThiruviNNagar(viz)., Bhumi DEvi and the Lord is never ever separated from Her ).

7 .taapatrayeem niravadhim bhavathee dhayArdhrA :

samsAra garma janithAm sapadhi kshipantha:I

maathar bhajanthu madhurAmrutha varsha maithreem

MaayA Varaaha dayithE mayi thE katAkshA : II

( This is the 31st slOkam of Bhu Sthuthi of Swami Desikan. Since ThiruviNNagar is NaacchiyAr Koil , where there is prAdhanyam for Bhumi DEvi , we salute Her especially . Her Lord would enjoy it and welcome it even more than salutations directed at Him .

Meaning of the SlOkam : Oh Mother of the Universe !

Oh Devi who incarnated as the divine consort of Your Lord , who appeared out of His own volition as Varaaha Murthy ! This samsAram is a veritable parched summer.

The three tApams desicate the chethanams in samsAric existence . The intense sufferings from the three kinds of Taapams are instantly quelled by your cool kataakshams . May Your cool glances resembling the nectarine rain fall on me also and destroy my taapams ) .


8.tvam mE aham mE kuthastath tadhapi kutha

idham vEdamUla pramANAth

yEthaccha aNAdhisiddhAth anubhava vibhavAth

tarhi sAkrOsa yEva I

kvAkrOsa: kasya GithAdheeshu mama vidhitha:

kOathra sAkshee sudhee syAth

hantha tvath pakshapAthee sa ithi nrukalahE

mrugyamadhyasThavath tvam II

( This passage is from the Thirumanjanak Kattiyam of ParAsara Bhattar for Sri RanganAthA . This is the first of the stray verses of his Kattiyam sung in front of Sri RangarAjA during His hirumanjanam even today . This is in the form of a captivating di alog between a stubborn chethanam and its Master, the Lord Himself .

The Lord of Srirangam notices the "impunity and stubbornness " of the Jeevan , which considers itself to be a svathanthra purushan . The Lord in wet clothes from His just begun Thirumanjanam reminds the argumentative Jeevan that it is not ind ependent and it is His property as attested by VedAs , GitA and men of wisdom . The Jeevan disagrees with the Lord wearing a TuLasi garland on His wet body . ParAsara Bhattar reminds us that the situation

of the Lord proving His claim over His Lordship over the protsting and deluded Jeevan is like practise of DivyA referred to in smr*ithi texts . Divya practise relates to taking an oath to give testimony . To prove the ancient sesha-Seshi relationship b etween the Jeevan

and the Lord , Parasara Bhattar constructed this wonderful, imaginary dialog :

Lord : tvam mE ( You are Mine ; I own You ).

Jeevan : aham mE ( No, I belong to myself; I am independent)

Lord : Kuthas tath? (No, How could that be possible ?)

Jeeavn :Tadhapi kutha: ? ( How about Your own claim ? )

Lord: idham vEda moola pramANAth ( My claim is based on

the authority of the VedAs )

Jeevan : yEthacchAnaAdhi siddhAth anubhava vibhavAth

( My position however is based on my own experience ,

which is " beginnigless in nature").

Lord : Tarhi SaakrOsa yEva( But that position of yours

has alrady been repudiated )

Jeevan : KaakrOsa: kasya ? ( where and by whom was

this repudiated ? )

Lord: GitAdheeshu mama vidhitha: ( By Me , ofcourse !

I repudiated it clearly in GitA )

Jeevan: kOathra Saakshi: ? ( Pray , who is the witenss

for Your repudiation in GitA ? )

Lord: Sudhee: syAth ( A man of wisdom and clear mind)

Jeevan :Hantha, tvath pakshapaadheesa ( Well , well!

Then Your wise man is partial to You ).

Lord's above conversation with the deluded soulreminding of its eternal sesha realtionship (servitude) to the Lord is to be remembered by us during the Thirumanjanam . He is attesting to that sacred truth with wet cloth and Tulasi garland .


9. SvAmi SvasEsham Svavasam SvabharathvEna nirbharam I

Svadhattha SvadhiyA SvArTham Svasmin nyasyasi mAm Svayam II

( This slOkam is one of the most important slOkam of

SWami Desikan's NyAsa Dasakam , where he performed SaraNAgathi at the lotus feet of Our PerumAL standing as archA on top of Hasthigiri .We recite it regularly to remind of the Sesha-Seshi relationship that cna not ever be cut asunder between us and the Master , our Lord . This uRavu is " ozhikka OzhiyAthu " as Bhumi Piratti pointed out in Her THiruppaavai paasuram .This is the uRavu that ANDAL's father , PeriyAzhwAr , referred to in his

ThiruppallANdu paasuram :

" Yenthai tanthai tanthai tanthai tamm

mUtthappan yEzhpaDik kaal thoDangi

vanthu vazhi vazhi aatc cheyhinROm "

Swami Desikan instructs us here about Saathvika ThyAgam constituted by its three parts (viz)., Karthruthva thyAgam, MamathA thyAgam and Phala thyAgam , in this most important

slOkam . The gist of the meaning of this slOkam is as follows :

Sriman NaarayaNan is the Lord of us all . I am his bonded servant . I stay totally at His command .He gave me Himself this jn~Anam about my status and eternal relationship . With the blessings of this jn~Anam , He has made sure that I understand that t here is nothing else for me to do for my protection and has accepted total responsibility for my protection . The fruits arising out of my protection also belongs to Him . He has made sure that I am not connected with that fruit of that rakshaNam and has now placed me at His own lotus feet and

releived me of all responsibilities and concerns.

10. naNNalariya pirAnE NaaraNA neerAda Vaaraai

vaaitha puhazh MaNivaNNA manjanamAda nee vaarAi

vaNNam azhahiya namBee manjanamAda vaarAi

mANikkamE yenn maNiyE manjanmAda vaarAi

The above four lines are from PeriiyAzhwAr's NeerAttam paasuram that we recite during the Lord's Thirumanjanam . Here PeriyAzhwAr transforms Himself into YashOdhA piratti , the anxious mother chasing the Aayar kulak kozhundhu and persuading her dear so n to stand still so that she can enjoy bathing Him .

The meaning of these four lines assembled here are :

Oh, My NaarAyaNA !Oh Lord who is not easy to approach normally ! Please come hither for Your enjoyable bath . Oh Lord with gem-bedecked aabharaNams ! Oh Lord with the hue of blue sapphire ! Oh Lord of fixed glory ! Please come near to take Your sacred bath . Oh Lord with the ThirumEni celebrated for its unparalleled soundharyam ! Please come over here to permit me to bathe You. Oh my cherished red ruby ! my dear gem of a son ! Please do not run away . Come now and come here so that I can perform Thiru mnajanam for You .

11. ninRa marAmaram saaytthAi nee piRantha ThiruvONam

inRu, nee neerAdavEndum EmpirAn OdAthE vaarAi

nin thiratthEnallEn namBee nee piRantha ThirunannAL

nanRu nee neeradavENdum NaaraNA OdAthE vaarAi

These portions of the Neeraattam paasurams from periyAzhwAr remind YasOdhA Bhaagyam that it is His birthday , when SravaNa nakshathram is in ascendance and it is essential that He should receive His visEsha Thirumanjanam on this special day . YasOdhA a ppeals to her quick-footed son not to run away from her . She concedes that she does not fully comprehend His glories as SarvEsvaran , who felled the YamaLArjunams ( the twin marutham trees in her garden )and performed many adhbhuthams as Her son in gOku lam as an infant .

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Dear BhakthAs : We will continue here with the divya prabhandham-based salutations to ThiruviNNagarappan that request Him to accept our loving invitation to take part in His Thirumanjanam . Kattiya Vaakhyams from 12-15 address Him with affection and eu logize His glories . The meanings of these divya prabhandham sections are given in paranthesis after the Kattiya Vaakhyams :

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Oh Lord with the resplendent , tall crown decorated with the garlands made up of freshly blossomed flowers of the day ! Oh Lord residing eternally in the KshEthram of ThiruviNNagar known for its beautiful groves populated with diverse flowering trees ! Oh Lord , who ended the life of the arrogant RaavaNA , the king of LankhA surrounded by the Oceans ! Oh Lord, who walked among the rows of kings assembled in DuryOdhanan's court on behalf of

the PaandavAs as their ambassador(Paandava DhUthan)!

13. Vanthu kuRaLuruvAi nimirnthu maavali

Oh Lord , who brought back BhUmi dEvi from below the ocean , embraced Her and positioned Her with great affection by the side of Your gigantic tusk and who gives us Your darsanam as BhU VarAha PerumAn !)

14. kunRaal kuLir maari Tadutha aruLALA !

Oh Lord who took the simple duties of a cowherd to graze the co ws for the pleasure of being with the GopAs and Gopis at BrindhAvanam !)

15. undhimEl naanmuhanai padaittha PemmAnE !

Oh Lord , who always pervades the heart region of Your dear ones as nectarine presence there !)
