[sc:b]If one immerses in the IDu, IDu appears great. If one goes into TirunedunthANTakam vyAkyAnam, it is magnum opus. However, if we go into the commentaries of Sri MaNavALa mAmunikaL, these are extremely wonderful. All the qualities of commentaries are present in these and is outstanding. Be it the vyAkyAnam for mumUskhuppadi or SrivAchanabHUshaNam or AchArya Hrdhyam,, the words of Peirya jEyar stand out tall.[sc:/b]
[sc:b]Let us go into two small example of classical analysis by mAmunikaL
The fifth sUthram of SrI vachana bHushaNam :
Sri PiLLai lOkachAryar brings out the point that, in Srimad RAmAyaNam the greatness of pirATTi is spelt out and in mahAbhAratham the greatness of Sri KrishNA as messenger is brought forth.
While giving commentary mAmunikaL analyzes thus:
These questions are answered by the commentator.
PirATTi imprisoned Herself voluntarily for the sake of releasing the imprisonment of dhEva mahishis. If somebody thinks that She was overpowered by rAvANA, they do not realise Her powers.
She voluntarily thus put Herself into prison for the sake of releasing others. If an ordinary person is imprisoned, it is because of their kArmic effects. Here it is out of compassion and voluntary.
Therefore, the greatness of pirATTi ‘s compassion is brought about by these words and that is why this is great.
Did not vAlmIkI bhagavAn himself spell out that the whole RamAyaNam is about Her greatness
Did not Azvar say ‘தனிச்சிறையில் விளப்புற்ற’ திருவாய்மொழி ௪-௮-௫ TirvAimzohi 4-8-5
