"gajAnan (the double-tusked elephant-faced nitya-sUri) and hundreds of such sUris, who always remove all obstacles, form the members of the corps of vishvaksena. I take resort to them. "

"VyAsa is the great-grandson of vasishta and the grand-son of Sakti. He is the son of parAsara and the father of Suka. I offer my obeisance to that vyAsa who is free from all defects and is a mine of austerities. "
Brahma, Vashitar, Sakthi, Parasara bhagawan, Vyasar, Sukacharyar is the family tree. Vyasar is Sukar’s father(thatham). Vysar’s kulam is so great. He is the one who gave us the veda’s. He is in the lineage of Vashista – Brahmathai nishtai petttravarana Vashistar, avar kulathuke vanakam.
Note : Sukar and Vysar
Sukacharyar - he is sukabrahmam. Once Sukar and his father vyasar happen to cross a water body and the girls were having a bath. All the girls didn’t bother when Sukar crossed and when vysar crossed, they were all feeling shy. Then Vysar stopped and asked the girls on why they didn’t react when his son went while they reacted so when he crossed. The girls replied “Intha kelviyai neer ketteere unga pillai ketklai.. “. For sukar - sarvam brahmathmagam jagathu.. For him all our same – living, non living. Once vysar called Sukar. Sukar didn’t hear it and he went away. But the trees near replied “Hye Thatha”. Which means sukar thought the trees and him are same. So the trees responded when vysar called sukar.
Vyasaya vishnuroopaya vyasaroopaya vishnave |
Namo vai brahmanidhaye vasisthaya namo namah ||
"My repeated salutations to vyAsa who is a form of vishNu and to vishNu who is a form of vyAsa- sage vyAsa, who is a descendent of vasishta and who is a treasure of brahman, (i.e. vedas). "
Vyasarrukku vanakkam, Vishnu roopamana Vysarukku vanakkam. Vishnuvukku vanakkam, vyasa roopanama Vishnuvukku vanakkam. Avan SARIRE ivargal yellam SARIRAM, avan prakari ivargal yellam prakarangal. Both cannot stay without each other. Like how a father, mother are words which have a meaning only when qualified with whom. So if we say brahmam or paramatma then the question is “For whom is he paramatma?“ so there is a need for existence of world and jeevatma for whom he is the paramatma. Jeevatmavoda serthathuthan Paramatma. Paramatma voda serthavan than Jeevatma. This does not mean Vysar and Vishnu are same. Ivargalai SARIRAMmagavum than(he) SARIREyagavum kondu irukiran bhagawan. This slogam explains the SARIRATMA BHAVAN. Ivan avanaga piranthan. Ivan avanai antharyamiyaga kondan.
Thirumazhisai Azhwar in Naanmukhan ThiruvanthAthi has declared the mutual relationship (anyOnya sambhandham) between the Lord and the Jeevan this way: "NaanUnnai anRi ilEnkaNDAy, NaaraNanE, Nee yennai anRi ilai". You do not exist without me (as your sarIram) and I do not have satthA (existence) without You as my sarIree (indweller). That sambhandham is celebrated here and RakshA is offered to that sambhandham.

Note : After this comes the four slogam explained earlier in avatharikai and the 6+1 reasons for the greatness of VishnuSahasranamam. Concludes by saying how Krishna himself sat and listen to HIS namas.

"My salutations to vishNu, Who is devoid of all mutations, Who is by nature pure and eternal, Who is endowed with a form which is uniform at all times, and Who is the victor all. "

"My salutations to that superior diety vishNu, by a mere thought of Whose name all persons are freed from the bonds of samsara (birth and death). Salutations to that All-powerful vishNu, Who is signified by pranava (i.e. Omkara). "
