Meaning of the Prayer Song:

 Oh Father! Privately You are enjoying the wealth of Bliss, which is ordinary for You;
However You are putting up a show of begging for alms, covering me in illusion!
Being the Master, Who established code of conduct for all the worlds,
is it appropriate for You to keep me away? Tell!
Unite me with Yourself!


1. guptam - secretly; tAta - father; vibhajya - separating out; sthApaka - founder.

2. c.f. தனம் முனே தனக்கின்மையோ தமராயினார் அண்டமாளத் தான்
     வனனில் வாழ்க்கை கொண்டாடிப் பாடி இம்வ்வையம் மாப்பலி தேர்ந்ததே - சம்பந்தர்
