This  pravachanam is the continuation of 5th churnika fourth day in a row

In this churnika, Sri Ramanuja describes the specialties of Sri Vaikuntam.
The svarupam(basic character)  and svabhavam(nature) of this vaikuntam cannot be described even by the mind and speeches of Sanaka sanandhana and other Parama Yogis. 
It is full of sudhdhasathvam (pure goodness).
It is permanent but will change based on the sankalpam of lord Srimanarayana.
Our Lord is the Master of such Supreme land which is  full of limitless Bhogyams.
Bhogyam refers to the things which are enjoyed (such as divine songs or divine food or divine      fragrance from flowers). 
Bhogopakaranam refers to the article or equipment through which something is enjoyed.
Bhogasthanam where bhogyam is enjoyed. It could be a  mandapam or garden. 
Srivaikuntam is full of such countless  wonderful things  that one cannot imagine or visualize. They will appear new, but would be there for a long time.
Srivaikuntam is having countless wealth (here wealth would also be the rivers, ponds, lakes, gardens)
Srimanarayana, who is the lord of such a place (srivaikuntam) which is permanent and wondrous.

Sri Ramanuja further describes perumal's wealth in Leela Vibhuthi(Samasaram or materialistic world).
The Leela Vibhuthi acts as per Lord Srimanarayana’s Sankalpam.It will act not only as per his order but also his desire.
His Nitya Vibhuthi exists for his happiness.
Lord Srimanarayana keeps creating, protecting and destroying Leelavibhuthi.As nitya means permanent, perumal's nitya vibhuthi always exists.

Sri Ramanuja explains three features(Swarupam-nature,Sthithi-sustenance,Pravruththi-activity) for Prakruthi, Purusha and kaala thathvam.
Prakruthi is primordial insentient state(It will keep changing constantly and it will exist one day and disappear the next day).
Purusha refers to all Jeevathmas.
Kaalam refers to time.

Prakruthi is composed of Sathva(Goodness),rajas(passion or desire) and thamas(Ignorance)
Jivathma’s pravruththi(activity) is to engage in activities which will result in papa (result of sinful activities) or punya (result of good activities)

Sri Ramanuja mentioned the 8 qualities and several auspicious qualities of Lord Srimanarayana.
1. Sathyakama 
2. Sathyasankalpa
3. Parabrahmabhutha 
4. Purushoththama
5. Mahavibhuthe
6. Sriman
7. Narayana
8. Srivaikuntanatha 

The first 4 of the 8 qualities described above are part of bhagavan’s ability to create the worlds. The next four are part of the path to surrender – that only he can grant us moksham (srivaikuntam). 
The terms sathyakama, sathyasankalpa and parabrahmabhutha (which are part of the 8 qualities described above) are linked to leela vibhuthi (materialistic world that we live in). 
Purushoththama and narayana are linked to his gunas (his qualities).
Mahavibhuthe and sri vaikuntanatha are linked to nithya vibuthi (srivaikuntam). 
Sriman is linked to his consorts(wife).

Souseelya(treating all as equal)
