Translated by Smt Sumithra Varadarajan
Now the jeevatma receives the divine touch from the holy messengers of the lord - amAnavan.
At the end of the divine prabhandam Upadesa ratina mAlai, there is a practice to chant the paasuram by erumbiappa,
"mannuyir kAl engE manavAla mAmunivan
ponnadiyAm senkamala pOdhugalai - unni
siraththAlE teendil amAnavanum nammai
karaththAlE teedal kadan"
This paasuram tells us the easiest way to get the soft touch of the amAnavan. If we are blessed with the divine thiruvadi of manavAla mAmunikal in this world we are sure to be blessed with the divine hands of amAnavan on our heads later.
The jeeva then receives the divine body blessed by bhagavan out of his sankalpa (a mental creation).
Then the jeeva lands in the divya desa where there is no power for time (the time never rules in the divine abode of the lord).
He first undergoes a holy bath.
He is grandly embellished.
Slowly he reaches the divya vimAna.
He crosses the divine entrance.
He is welcomed by divine angels (apsara srees).
He gradually smells the holiness.
He now smells the lord.
He then moves towards the aprAkrutha (that which is away from nature) gopura.
Now he enters the world of divinity.
He comes in contact with the nithya sooris.
His journey continues in the divine way (Raja mArga).
He attains the enthralling beauty (brahma tEjas).
Now comes the divine gopura.
He enters the divine abode of the lord.
He proceeds towards the maha mandapam.
He has the darshan of the sacred jeevas always in service to the divine lord.
Now he is blessed with the final treat, the divine darshan of the lord along with his consorts.
With folding arms praising the lord He approaches emperuman.
