the water is the primary and necessary element for all the things
in this world to survive. To explain this, the Perumal is giving
his seva as "Jagadeswar Perumal". The Perumal is also
called as "Thiru Neeragathan" found along with "Nilamangai
valli Thaayar". All the water rushes towards the place where
there is a small groove or hole. Like the same way, Emperumaan flows
into the hearts of bhaktas and and fill their soul with bhakthi.
Neer, the water is said to be cool in nature. Like wise, Emperumaan
gives the coolest blessings to his devotees. All living things need
water to live and at the same time, the body is also purified by
water. By explaining this, he tells both the Aathma and the human
body to get purified and attain the Moksha, we need his help and
the support. Even if a small hole is found in the boat, the water
will flow in. Like wise, if even the small level of bhakti is found
in the hearts of his bhaktas he will flow into us. But at the same
time, if we doesnt think and pray to him, he will go out as the
water which comes out of the small hole found in the vessel. The
water flows towards all of the regions. It doesnt consider any raised
lands or the lowered regions to flow. Likewise, infront of Sriman
Narayanan, all are one and there is no higher than the other.
Thaayaar - Nilamangaivalli.
Theertham - Akrura Theertham.
