The great acharyas, who lived in the days of yore, have taken pity on us and blessed us with many of their scholarly works to lead us to liberation. I can no longer bear this. Qarthi virtue of your grace, create in me the interest for liberation and bless me by being my means to paramapadham as soon as possible.
Ethiraja this physical body has imprisoned me.
Even though I am the author of all evil things and have no good act to my credit, you have promised Moksha. Sugarcane as it grows increases it prabandhwm. In this verse, Manavala Mamunigal eulogises his Acharyan Thiruvaimozhippillai who is also referred to as Thirumalai Azhwar and whose fame spread in all directions as an epitome of unadulterated purity.
It is exclusive to Ramanuja and none else even to Lord Ranganatha. Atma is devoted to the Lord.
But for the Acharya, we may not obtain the salvation. He finds fault with Ramanuja in every role like father etc for his lapses. In this verse, Mamunigal praises the scholarly genius of Ramanuja that defeated the six philosophical schools propagated by foreign forces. Gurunatham and Battamatham have been vanquished completely. Will a father be able to enjoy his material prosperity without his son partaking in the enjoyment? He is present in both living and lifeless entities.
Keep reminding yourself of the holy name of Ramanuja. Even with such conviction the Lord would not tolerate my sins which are of such unimaginable magnitude. He opines that there is no one in this world but Ramanuja who can lead an unqualified person like him to salvation. Among the three, Srivachana Bhusanam was composed at the divine command of Lord Varadaraja. As the atma leads its way to the palace of Vaikuntanatha where the Lord is seated along with His consort Mahalakshmi, it is welcomed by celestials who give it a divine decoration.
It is the day when the evils associated with kaliyuga perished. It was out of his compassion that he took pity on me, absolved me of my sins and accepted me as his servant. Guru matham is driven out far away from fame. It is the divine will of Lord Ranganatha that I should annul the effects of my karma in this very birth. Accordingly Maamunigal undertook pilgrimage to holy shrines and made several innovations and reforms in the rituals at Temples.
It is the day when the teaching enunciated by Azhvars like Parakala, Parankusha in their prabandhams spread very widely. Such thoughts are bestowed on us by the grace of Lord Ranganatha.

Hence the above line refers to the opportunity given to Maamunigal to give final shape to Vaishnavite doctrines in his innumerable works. In the next line Maamunigal refers to the take over of Temple administration by Ramanuja and his reforms effected in the administration of rituals, which are followed even to day.
Who else do I have but you to protect me? I lecture to others not to do what is forbidden. Having described this journey, Mamunigal requests Ramanuja to grace him with liberation so that he can join the Nithya Mukthars and engage in eternal service to the Lord in paramapadham.

Sri Manavaala Mamunigal
You know well his intentions in this regard and so I request you to fulfill the same. Is it a result of the cumulative karma, which, does not seem to reduce despite my earnest attempts to seek redemption?
This is the second consecutive verse where Mamunigal hails the glory of his immediate upakaraka acharya, Thiruvaimozhippillai. It is well known that Ramanuja formulated Vaishnavite doctrines in accordance with the views expressed by Nammazhvar in His prabandhams. In addition to driving home the importance of singing the holy names of Ramanuja, Mamunigal also makes passing references to the following topics in this prabandham:.
From the day your ever-merciful grace fell on me, I realised my duty of complete surrender to you. Through these verses, Mamunigal announces his servitude to Ramanuja and requests the king of hermits to similarly bless him with his abundant grace.
However, out of ignorance, I have been drifting aimlessly in the direction of my sensory pulls. Ideally, my mind, which has so far only sought lowly things, should have forever remained addicted to serving your feet. Am I not equivalent to your son? Those who worship the feet of the people who have managed to avoid the company of such non-believers will be exalted to a status equivalent to that of the celestials.
People of Gunatham arguing wrongly have been silenced. On finding the child falling in the well, the mother plunges in to the well immediately to save the child. In this work Maamunigal conveyed the thoughts of Purvachaarya fully and hence it is impossible to quote the texts of the thoughts of all Purvachaaryas. Till today due to Karma time has been wasted without realizing it. In the commentaries of Maamunigal while emphasizing his view point of vaishnavite doctrine refuting other schools of thought with authoritative quotations great care has been taken not to cause slightest injury to the feelings of others.
People who have no such attributes are dependent only on your grace, Oh Ramanuja.
