avathArikai (Introduction)

piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully speaks about those who assumed to be in inferior birth, after explaining about desiring for the same.

sUthram 238

brAhmaNOththamarAna periyAzhwArum thirumagaLArum gOpa janmaththai AsthAnam paNNinArgaL.

Simple Explanation

periyAzhwAr who is best among brAhmaNas and his divine daughter assumed the cowherd birth.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

brAhmaNOththamarAna …

That is – periyAzhwAr who was born in a varNa which is considered as “there is nothing better than this” and being best in his clan due to his great knowledge etc and his divine daughter ANdAL who was very knowledgeable in the essence of vEdham like her father who could see the ultimate benefit of vEdham was greatly desirous to enjoy SrI krishNAvathAram. Due to that overwhelming affection, they fully assumed the third varNam of ignorant cowherd clan which is considered inferior compared to their own varNam, by speaking in the mood of a cowherd person in periyAzhwAr thirumozhi “midukkilAmaiyAl nAn melindhEn nangAy” (I became weak due to lack of strength), periyAzhwAr thirumozhi “en magan gOvindhan” (My son, gOvindha), periyAzhwAr thirumozhi “panniru thingaL vayiRRil koNda appAnginAl” (due to carefully nurturing krishNa in my womb for twelve months) and in thiruppAvai 1 “AyppAdich chelvach chiRumIrgAL” (Oh wealthy girls of this gOkulam!), thiruppAvai 2 “nAmum nam pAvaikku” (for our vratham), thiruppAvai 28 “Aykkulaththu unRannaip piRavi peRundhanaip puNNiyam yAmudaiyOm” (We have the great blessing of your taking birth in our cowherd clan).
