periya thirumadal question

From: Mani Varadarajan (

Dear Bhaktas,

I know this Prabandham has been discussed in brief
before. Dileepan and Badri Seshadri have written  
particularly nice articles, which can be read in the 
March 96 archives.

Where exactly in the PTM (periya thiru madal) does 
thirumangai aazhvaar go into detail about why dharma, 
artha, and moksha are inferior to kaama? And what,
in brief, is his justification for the first two
(I know about moksha from reading siRiya thiru madal)?

Learned bhaktas are requested to respond.
