nammalwar vaibhavam - sri ranganathan swami

nammalwar vaibhavam

divya suri charitam, parankusa ashtakam: In the beginning of kaliyuga in vaisakhi month, visakha nakshatram, to establish vishnu bhakti, vishwaksena appeared in

In our sampradayam, dwaya mantra guru parampara.

Alwar explained dwayam: the essense of vedanta.

Divya prabandas: 4: vishwaksena's amsa: nammalwar.

anga upangas: (6+8) 14 are divya prabandas are alwars.

dravida prabanda's main content is nammalwar's 4 works. The remaining prabandas are explanations of nammalwar's dravida vedam.

Uttarakaanda of veda: is explained as divya prabanda. sanskrit veda can confuse people, it is not the case with alwar's works ...

nammalwar is our kulapati. the Lord of the clan of prapannas.

43 days after kali, nammalwar appeared on friday, chaturdasi, kataka lagnam, sukla paksham. sri vignaana gatapayadi sankya

For we to go up, nammalwar came down.

tanian: bhutam ... order of alwars is placed wrong in chronology of time. But it explains us angas and angi
bhutadalwar is head
pogai alwar and pei alwar are eyes.
bhattanadha is face.
tirumazhisayi(bhakti sara) alwar neck
tondaradippodi alwar is chest
kulasekhara and tiruppanalwar are hands
tirumangai alwar is navel.

parankusa muni is the soul

ramanuja is nammalwar's tiruvadi

In the pandya desa(south of madhura) , on tampraparni river's bank, the Lord himself appeared in front of our own eyes.

SrI nagari: alwar tirunagari. tiru kuru vuru.

This is here, brahma is taught all that brahma should know. Lord here is the first Lord. (appan koil)

with the grace of Lord, he appeared in the family of a great sri vaishnavas. for 7 generations, that family was only serving appan.

They are tondar kulam. caste of dasas.

In such a family that has seshatva gnana, such a family.

That family have no allegation of misdoings.

family lineage:
thiruvazhudivaLanAdar->arantangyar->chakrapaaNiyaar->achyuta->sen-tamarai kaNNar->seN kaNNar-> porkariyar->kariyar-> nammalwar is born. all of them are sri vaishnavas.

Nammalwar's family is the family of all prapannas.

By inheritance, he got great samskaras.

karyar was taken to tiruval marbar. karyar must be married to udayanangai. After marriage, they dont have child for long. They went to tirukkurungudi, on an advice.

Entire sri vaishnava world is very happy because of their marriage.

They tied toraNams everywhere. purNa kumbham was offered. tirukuru vuru.

at tirukkurungudi, Lord graces in different colours. There they prayed for santanam.

We want a son like You. There is not any one who is like Lord. My amsam will be born to you, said the Lord.

On the auspicious day, our vakula bhUshaNa bhaskara has born.

For our world, Sri vaishnava world, our rising sun is nammalwar.

Swami refused to behave like an ordinary boy. He is called maran, as he changed soon after going to appan's sannidhi, and crawled to a tamarind tree.

Adisesha was that tamarind tree.

Alwar is on constant meditation of Lord's auspicious qualities.

Alwar is eating Lord. And Lord eats nammaLwar.

alwar's taraka, poshaka, bhogya is KrishNa.

Krisha trushNa tattvam. an entity who cannot be replaced.

parama bhakti is the tattvam of alwar.

para bhakti, para gnanam, parama bhakti.

Sleeping during day/night, adiyen doesnot know.

His eyes always flowed like an ocean, for being seperated from the Lord.

alwar is talking as 'parankusa nayaki'. She calls Him, and fold hands, showing asaktata to bear seperation from the Lord.

In the sameway, maNavaaLa maamuni has similar parama bhakti for yatIndra, swami ramanuja.

na bhUtO na bhavishyati- parama bhakti of nammalwar.

tiruviruttam - rig veda

tiruvaasiriyam - yajurveda

periya tiruvandadi- adhrvana veda

tiruvayimoli- samaveda

sahasra saakha dravida veda sagara.

dravida veda cannot be written by humans. It is only revealed by alwars.

parasara bhattar is sriranga purOhita, brought up by SrIranganatha, ranganayaki. bhattar is greatly obsessed with tiruvaranganathan.

tiruvayimoli has many commentaries: .......
piLLan - 6000 padi
nanjeeyar- 9000 padi
nampillai- 36000 padi and eedu kalapshekam
periya achan pillai -vyaakhyaana chakravarty- 24,000 padi.
vadi kesari azhagiya manavala jiyar- 12,000 padi


sudha sampradaya acharyas: kurattalwan, nanjeeyar, nampillai
sudha sampradaya pravartaka acharyas: nanjeeyar, nampillai

All of our sampradaya samrajyam is built by nammalwar.

He saved our sampradayam.

alwar tiruvadigalE saranam.
