How glorious and magical are his deeds!!
Nammalwar is worried that he could not seek Lord’s abode because he felt himself to be full of misdeeds! He sings out confessing that he is even more horribly sinful than Putana! However, Lord tells him that His own existence makes sense only when He accepts everyone, no matter how sinful one is! The only thing that matters is sincerity.
If one is extremely sinful and it is all directed to God, that’s ok. If one is extremely in fear and all that fear is directed about God, that’s still ok. If one is extremely angry and all that anger is directed to God, that’s also ok! If the emotional attachment is ONLY with God, you are already in liberation from all other bondage! Sincerity here reflects on how the emotional attachment is ONLY with God, and no-one else or towards nothing else. Rest is taken care by Him just like how he transformed Putana in the last moments! Other examples include Kams, Sishupal, Mareecha.
Now, how can one live happily without being emotionally attached to anything or anyone? It’s possible! When you look at someone, go beyond what you can see and trust that the same God who is supporting you is also the supporter of the other person. Your task with that person is now about working together for a greater purpose than working only for yourself!
