Mudalayiram (Last 3 Āzwārs)


In Stock

The present publication encompasses three Āzwārs (also from Mudhalāyiram) each great in his own way. While Thondarippodi Āzwār’s ‘Thirumālai’ is a masterpiece in bhakthi being narrated in a simple language, his Thiruppalli yezucchhi has the distinction of being recited daily in houses and temples for waking up the Lord (revellie). This forms a part of Nithyanusandthhānam along with Thirupallāndu and Thiruppāvai.

Madhurakavi Āzwār represents what is known as ‘charamaparva nishtai’ an ultimate state of ‘bhāgavatha sēshathvam’: supreme loyalty to an āchārya who is devoted to God. His eleven verses, in fact, brought back into this world, the 4000 Divya Prabhandham, as Naathamuni recited his ‘Kanninum Shirutthāmbhu’ 12,000 times in order to retrieve it.
