In the evening the Lord appears with flute under Punnai tree. On Second day the Lord mounts Adisesha and graces.
In the evening the Lord appears mounted on lion! Lion on lion!! Next day is the eagerly awaited Garuda seva.
In the evening the Lord graces on Hamsa or Swan vahanam. Once, when lord Brahma lost Vedas, the Lord again brought Vedas and preached, in the form of Hamsa. On Fourth day it is Soorya prabhai.
In the Eleventh Chapter, we saw that the Lord appeared with dazzling brightness, equivalent of Thousands of Suns shining! In the evening the Lord appears in Chandra Prabhai. While Sun is hot, Chandra or Moon cools and likewise the Lord cools off our heat. Both these Soorya and Chandra Prabhais, signify that the Lord Sri Narasimha is unapproachable like the hot Sun, to Hiranyakasipu; and, kindly graces devotees like Prahalada, like Moon! On Fifth day the Lord is in the guise of a Damsel - Nacchiyar Thirukkolam!
In the evening the Lord graces on the shoulders of Hanuman. Hanuman is known as Siriya Thiruvadi [சிறிய திருவடி]. On Sixth day the Lord graces from Thanga [gold] chapparam.
Chapparam is a chariot without canopy. Right hand is in abhaya mudra while left arm is welcoming in the ahvahana mudra. That day, evening the Lord graces, mounted on elephant. Though lion and elephant are enemies, here the Lord Sri Narasimha is on an elephant! On Seventh day the Lord graces from the World famous Ther [தேர்] or Grand Chariot! It is pulled by large number of devotees. On Eighth day the Lord comes in a Pallakku in procession.
Next the Lord is mounted ona horse. The Lord jumps and leaps to rescue us. On Ninth day the Lord arrives in Aalum pallakku.
In the evening the Lord graces from Punyakoti vimanam.
With His blessings now we will see sloka 26:
yavat sanjayate kincit
tad viddhi bharatarsabha
"O chief of the Bharatas, know that whatever you see in existence, both the moving and the nonmoving, is only a combination of the field of activities and the knower of the field."
Bharatarishabha = Bull of Bharata dynasty [Arjuna], tad viddhi = understand this. Sri Krishna tells Arjuna that atman is imprisoned in a body due to past Karma. The Lord wants atman to be viewed separately from the body. Why we are unable to see atman separately? We are easily confused that atman and body are same. This confusion is in great scholars also. Why so? It is replied in this sloka. Both - soul and body- are bonded intimately. It is like fastening two things tightly and with many knots. One can not easily separate them! Atman and body are bonded by rope Karma, tightly! First we should understand that our atman and body are bonded, we have to loosen the bond and then view both separately. Yavat = whichever, sattvam = living being, sanjayate = is born [and dies]. Stavara - jangama = [living beings are] stationary and movable. Kshetra = body, kshetrajna = atman, samyogat = bondage. How these two are bonded? In the womb of a mother, body slowly graces and an atman is bonded inside. How this atman entered this body? It is because of Karma. We have to realize that atman and body are different; but this knowledge is hidden by Karma. Bondage of these two results in birth; and separation, in death. Karma prevents atman going straight to Moksham, on separation.
