Oh Dayaa Devi! During the Summer the surface of the sea water will be hot. Even then the natural coolness of the water below will never leave it. Similarly, when PrapannAs deliberately accumulate sins, the Lord of Thirumalai gets angry. You are next to Him and He cannot ever be without You. When He gets angry over the PrapannAs, You (Dayaa DEvi) keep a low profile. Next, You persuade Him to mete out a lighter punishment or encourage a PrAyascchittha Prapatthi to be done by the Prapannan to eliminate the new sins and to remove Your Lord’s anger. Then You resume Your prominent profile. You will not tolerate one thing however (i-e) Prapannan who has already done Prapatthi once for Moksham repeating that upAyam. Oh Dayaa Devi! You must bless me and shower Your KaruNA kadAkshams on adiyEn. You must facilitate Your Lord’s majestic KatAkshams to fall on adiyEn. Those kadAkshams are of a cool nature like the lotus that You hold in a sportive manner in Your hand. You must use Your merciful glances to touch adiyEn’s mind and body to reduce the SamsAric heat that adiyEn suffers from.
