Sri RanganAyakai Nama:
OudhArya KaaruNikathAsritha vathsalathva-
poorvEshu sarvamathisayithamathra Maatha:
SrIrangadhAmni yadhutAnyadh udhAharanthi
SeethAvathAramukham yEthath amushya yOgyam
(Meaning according to Dr.V.N.Vedanatha Desikan):
Oh Mother! all Your traits as bounteousness, mercy, sympathy for the surrendered one, and the like, shine in Your station at SrIrangam, with great lustre. Evidently, these qualities were also reckoned in avathArAs such as SeethA, that You took; this is no wonder since, as I perceive, all Your avathArAs were only rehearsal acts for this final portrayal as Sree Ranga nAyaki.
Oh Mother SrIranga Naayaki! The boundless generosity, the overflowing DayA towards Your children, affection and concern for Your erring children are abundantly experienced at Your residence at SrIrangam as ArchA Moorthy. All what IthihAsa-PurAnams salute about these auspicious attributes of Yours displayed during Your Vibhava avathArAms as SeethA PirAtti and the like appear to be rehearsals to gain perfection during Your archAvathAram as SrI Ranga Naayaki. All of these MangaLa guNams have attained a state of perfection for the benefit of the suffering samsAris. ArchAvathAram unlike VibhaavathArams is for the benefit of all and is for enjoyment at all times. VibhavAthaaram is limited to a certain time and place. Therefore , whatever outstanding attributes that You displayed as SeethA PirAtti during Your VibhavAvathAram seems to be a dress rehearsal for the full display during Your current archAvathAram as SrI Ranga Naayaki.
OudhAryam is svArTa nairapEkshaNyam according to the VasurAsi commentary of SrI VeerarAghavAchArya. It is not svayam prayOjanam. KaaruNyam is Para dukkha sahishNuthvam (empathy for the sufferings of others). Aasritha Vaathsalyam is aasritha dhOsha BhOgyathvam (Overlooking one's defects and yet having affection for the one, who has sought refuge). These parama slAgya guNams displayed as KshamA (Forbearance), DayA (Compassion even towards those who offend) were displayed in Vibhava avathArams such as the SeethAvathAram. All of those displays seem to be abhyAsam (rehearsals) for the ArchAvathAram as Sree Ranga Naayaki, when they reach their peak.
