I constantly worship the lotus feet of bhUthathAzhwAr, poigai AzhwAr, pEyAzhwAr, periyAzhwAr, ANdAL, thirumazisai AzhwAr, kulasEkara AzhwAr, thiruppANAzhwAr, thoNdaradippodi AzhwAr, thirumangai AzhwAr, srI rAmAnujar, madhurakavi AzhwAr and nammAzhwAr.

 10 AzhwArs

 madhurakavi AzhwAr, ANdAL, emperumAnAr

This divine slOkam was rendered by srI parAsara bhattar when he was in thirukkOttiyUr with nanjIyar. He left srIrangam due to the disturbances given by the local king, vIra sundhara brahma rAyan. At that time, out of the unbearable separation from srIranganAthan, bhattar complied this slOkam and the thanians of thiruppAvai to immerse himself in bhagavath/bhAgavatha anubhavam.

In this slOkam, in addition to identifying the 10 AzhwArs (poigaiyAr, bhUthAr, pEyar, thirumazhisai AzhwAr, nammAzhwAr, kulasEkara AzhwAr, periyAzhwAr, thoNdaradippodi AzhwAr, thiruppANAzhwAr and thirumangai AzhwAr), he also identifies ANdAL using the word “srI”, madhurakavi AzhwAr using the word “misra” (very learned/respected) and rAmAnujar using yathIndhrar.

A section in the 6000 padi guru paramparA prabhAvam establishes the validity and glories of AzhwArs. To read them click and .

An e-book is available with the full charithram and vaibhavam of AzhwArs and srI rAmAnujar and can be viewed/downloaded from:

Jaisrimannarayana...all works on this blog are par excellence..information is compiled and presented very beautifully...its really a divine grace of lord for dasans who do not know dravid languages..sorry but just want to mention that the last line of above mentioned thaniya of azhwars should be - "Srimad Parankush Munim Prantoshinityam." please correct dasi, if mistaking anywhere...
