URM – Pasurams 46 & 47

46.
periyavAchchAnpiLLai pinbhuLLavaikkum
theriya vyAkkiyaigaL seivAl – ariya
aruLichcheyal poruLai AriyargatkippOdhu
aruLichcheyalAi thaRindhu

Explanation:
Since Periyavachan Pillai authored the commentaries for the three thousand hymns (of the 23 prabandhams excluding Thiruvaimozhi) in a language that everyone can understand, the acharyas who succeeded him were capable of explaining the special meanings contained in the hymns to the people of this world.

47.
Nanjeeyar seidha vyAkkiyaigaL nAliraNdukku
enjAmai yAvaikkum illayE – thenjeerAl
vaiyaguruvin thambi mannu maNavALamuni
seyyumavai thAmum sila

Explanation:
Nanjeeyar wrote his commentaries on only a few select prabandhams. He did not write his commentaries on all the divya prabandhams. Blessed with kalyaNa guNAs, Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Nayanar, the brother of piLLai lokAcharya and Vadhikesari Azhagiya Manavala Jeeyar also wrote commentaries on a few select prabandhams alone.

Note: Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Nayanar wrote his commentaries on Thiruppavai and Kanninun Siruththaambu. Vadhikesari Azhagiya Manavala Jeeyar wrote his commentary on Thiruviruttam swapadesam.
