Meaning of thirumoolar thirumandthiram:

Even if I get to forget you and got involved in whatever else, in grandeur holding to the fore flower and water in order, without failing to remember, worshipping You, should become in built in me, oh the Lord of immortals ! Notes: 1. The natural tendency of the mind is to forget as cambandhar says. (maRakkum manaththinai mARRi). Even though one may reach a great state of mind in spirituality that may not be sustained during regular affairs. Regular rituals help one regain that making one steady in the spiritual progress. Through rituals if one gets to worship the God at various intervals of the day, that could lead one to ever living with the God. (cf. ororukAl emperumAn enRenRe namperumAn cIr orukAl vAyOvAL - tiruvasakam). Thus the need of ritual is emphasized. 2. aRappeRa - get in completeness.
