Meaning of song:

Though the heart was already full (of devotion), not stopping in the unsaturating love, thiNNanAr took up to follow that, "These seem to be the things that are nice for the Lord of thirukkALaththi !", and unable to take leave from that Supreme, with limitless favor ... Notes: 1. thiNNanAr (kaNNappar) already became complete in love at the sight of the Lord of kALaththi. He asked nANan about the decoration of God. nANan told that some brahmin used to come and showers cold water on Him, decorating with flowers and offered food. thiNNanAr decided to stick to that worship. As worship procedure what kaNNappar actually did would be even indigestible. But the key point to note is that he tried sincerely to seek the right way and follow that. On top of it he had enormous amount of devotion to God. Sincerely trying for getting the right knowledge to the extent available and implementing the feasible with strong conviction and great devotion could be observed in these nAyanmAr histories.
