Meaning : Dr.V.N.VedAntha Desikan:
That day, the sentient and the insentient ones were closely intertwined;it is just then the Lord, Your consort, decided to create.He created the five elements, the ahankArA, the Mahath, the five organs of perception, the mind, the motor organs, the universe full of such things, the seven boundaries around the world, the three worlds, BhU: Bhuva: and Suva: ; the many universes containing all these -- HE CREATED ALL THESE FOR YOUR SPORT. He creates for Your pleasure. The Lord's creative action is only to subserve Your pleasure.
AdiyEn's additional observations
Five verses ( SlOkams 19-23)extoll Sri MahA Lakshmi's glories as "the Commander of this temporal world and the other one beyond space and time and how these are Her grounds of Divine Sport".
Our Lord creates everything with His sankalpam at the time after PraLayam.During PraLayam, the sentient and insentient are attached to the Lord in an avyakthA form in tight embrace .Upanishad describes this act of creation as:" sOakAmayatha bahUsyAm prajAyEyEthi" . All of this creative initiative He undertakes just for MahA Lakshmi's pleasure and enjoyment.
The chEthanam and achEthanam are in a shrunken state embracing each other as part of the Lord's body during the time of Pralayam. The Lord has them all in His stomach as a small child floating in the waters of primordial deluge. He decides to create to amuse and entertain MahA Lakshmi.Naama Roopa prapancham comes in to being with His sankalpam. Out of Moola Prakruthi arises MahAn and from MahAn,ahankAram comes into being.AhankAram is of three kinds: Saathvika, Raajasa and Taamasa AhankArams. The Pancha bhUthams ( AakAsam,Vaayu, Agni, Water and Earth ) arise. SaathvikAhankAram assisted by raajasAhankAram lead to the creation of Manas, five karmEndhriyams and five Jn~AnEndriyams .
Swamy NammAzhwAr summarizes this creation through PanchIkaranam in one of his ThiruvAimozhi Paasurams and makes a special appeal to Sriman NaarAyanan :
pongaimpulanum poRi-aiynthum karumEndhriyam aimbhUtham ingi-ivvyuirEy pirakruthi maanankAra manangaLE --ThiruvAimozhi X.7.10
This is a ThirumAlirumchOlai Paasuram . Swamy NammAzhwAr requests the Lord of
ThirumAlirumchOlai (Lord SundararAjan) to do him a favor (Dr.V.N.V"s
" Your sportful action has spread a veil of MahA MaayA. What havoc it causes, I have known. The five senses like sound, which thrive from their site and confuse the mind; the five sense organs that are dragged by the former(manas) ; the five action-oriented limbs ; the five elements like earth ; The prakrithi that unites with Jivan and spoils its functions. The Mahath, that evolves from Prakrithi, that makes the soul go after senses; the ahamkArA, the next state of evolution, which will make for a confusion between the physical body (as soul) and the soul; the Manas, that then follows. Now, the play of all these on me is to be arrested. Please therefore, efface them out of me now".
(The Lord acceded to Swamy NammAzhwAr's request in a moment).
All these Our Lord Created for the pleasure of NahA Lakshmi and removed them from Swamy NammAzhwAr at his request . Such is His Maayai !
