Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I have heard from my many different sources that it was nAtha munigal
who found all 4000 Pasurams,  after he went to Azhwar Thirunagari and
chanted Kanninunsiruthambu for many millions of times. One thing that I
need clarification is that 4000 Divya Prabhandam has rAmAnuja
noorrandadi as part of it. Thiruvarangathu Amudanar was way after
nAthAmunigal, so what nAthamunigal found from nammazwar cannot be 4000
but must be only 3892. Is this the correct fact? Can anyone confirm
