Nammalwar thinks about this quality so deeply that his heart begins to melt down into an inseparable state with Lord. Bhagavad Vishayam, the scripture talks about the extent to which Nammalwar actualises Lord’s qualities.
To understand the extent of this actualisation, let’s take some mixtures and observe the strength of the bond between the constituents.
- Different types of grains such as rice, lentils, etc mixed together can be separated with some manual effort.
- Mixture of milk and water can be separated into their constituents with either some scientific technique or through a Swan from ancient times which is known to have the ability to separate the two.
- We may be able to separate two flours mixed with each other back into their own stacks, probably with even more advanced techniques.
But, imagine you took two types of flours, added some salt and water to make dosa batter, used oil and made a yummy dosa! Can you now separate the two flours from each other? No, we cannot. We can only relish its taste and experience it.
Similarly, Nammalwar’s heart broke down and melted itself into the divine qualities of Lord so deeply that it no longer can be seen separate from them! His heart became the happy home for Lord!
