[sc:b]Continuing the discussion on the fifth sUthram of Srivachana bHushaNam- let us now see how Sri MaNavALa mAmunikaL analyses the above mentioned term.
Though the job of emissary is good, it is not an exalted one.
Visualise a king and his messenger. The messenger has to don a pamphlet (Olai) on his neck indicating that he is the messenger of such and such person.
It is obvious that the emissary being a representative/agent of the king,definitely is in a lower status than that of a king.
If in relation to a king, the messenger’s status is low, imagine what will it become if it is compared to that of King of Kings, the Lord of Lords-The Supreme. When that Supreme Lord dons the role of a messenger, it will be belittling His status.
However, svAmi piLLai LOkaChAr mentions this as an attribute and prefers this term to Supreme.
[sc:b]svAmi maNavALa mAmunikaL explains this in detail
The reasons are:
Overlooking His greatness and ignoring the smallness of the job, Sri KrishNA took upon Him the task for the sake of pANDAVAs. This is the wonderful quality of -Asritha pArathanthiryam.
Is that not the reason why Kaliyan eulogised this great divine act as
[sc:q]’innAr dhUthan ena ninRAn’ Periya Tirumozhi 2-2- 3.[sc:/q]
[sc:q]’இன்னார் தூதன் என நின்றான்’ பெரிய திருமொழி ௨-௨-௩.[sc:/q]
AzvAr-s Divya SUkthIs are the source for AchAryAs to spell out these ideas. Is it not?
[sc:q]அவருடைய திவ்ய ஸூக்தியிறே இவர் இப்படி அருளிச் செய்வதற்கு மூலம்;[sc:/q]
