It is the Crown-gem of the ancient immortals (divines). It is the God (transcending & omnipresent) that is hard to be seen. It is the Easy one to reach for those who contemplate. It is the One Who gives the same thing prayed for. It is the Real path (to liberation). It is the One in the minds of those who have gone beyond all austerities. It is the Beloved Pretty One at thirumaRaikkADu. Notes: 1. God is the Blissful Supreme. It also makes the worshipper blissful. c.f. a. gAyatri mantra, b. namaH shivAya cha shiva tarAya cha - shrIrudhram 2. Many seek God for various reasons. Some for relief from suffering, some for prosperity, some for charity, some just out of love realizing the glory of God. Depending upon what would suit the individual, God bestows the grace in alignment with the desire of the seeker. When God showers limitless grace, it would be a good idea to look for blissful status rather than temporal pleasures. Taller the thoughts, taller would be the glory got. 3. thol - old; cULAmaNi - very rare jewel on the head; ARRa eLiyAn - easy to get to; mANDa - gone beyond.
