Simply means, The power of one who abstains from the 5 precepts,  which the Indhiran(Indhra) who rules the wider sky(heaven) wants to gain.

Kural: 245

அல்லல் அருளாள்வார்க்கு இல்லை வளிவழங்கும்
 மல்லன்மா ஞாலங் கரி.

Meaning: Emptiness/Paucity is not there for a graceful person,
like The wind_giver Mallan's worldly knowledge that is great and difficult to gain..

Here a graceful person is compared with the wind/air which has no space restrictions in this world.
The word "Mallan"  in Tamil itself means one who can occupy any place.
