Sri Amudhan SamprOkshanam and ChAthur mAsya sankalpam - Part 9

In the upanyAsam it is said as follows:

	It was  that  time  that  Sri  nammAhwAr was about to
deliver thiru vAy mozhi, as his first words. All the perumALs
from all the 107 divya  dEsams assembled there on top of this
holy tree branches  (this  tree is the second  incarnation of
Sri AdisEshan). However,  there was a pause for a few minutes
that prevailed. Everyone of the perumAL were eager to get the
pAsurams from HIM and as well to witness  this "whole truth"
or thamizh maRai or vEdam in tamil. Since the pause prolonged
All of the perumAL had asked "mAnaseekamAga" as  to  what  is
causing the delay. It is said that Sri  nammAzhwAr  had  also
coveyed back "manaseekamAga" that "iam waiting for my perumAL
and  only  after   HE arrives  I  will start and until then I
cannot deliver". "ie, en perumAL  innum  vara  villaiyE ?  en
perumAL varAmal  pAda   mAttEn. en perumAL  vanthALthan pAdal
varum".

	While everyone of the Lord wondered, Sri ArA  amuthan
just arrived then and asked Sri nammAzhwAr  to start !. It is
said that  Sri nammAzhwAr would then deliver the entire thiru
vAy mozhi after blessed by and commanded by  Sri  ArA amuthan
in person!. There  were  several  anubavams that  occured  to
adiyEn on this episode after I visited  this  "puliya  maRam".
adiyEn  also  had  a  wonderful  anubavam  about   the   holy
relationship  between  Sri  nammAzhwAr  and  Sri ArA amuthan.

	In a friendly debate last year, adiyEn digged out the
most thumping  proof from Sri AchArya hrudhayam on than oppAr
illappan. adiyEn argued that though  Sri  nammAzwAr  did  his
sAdhyOpayam or sarangathi at  the feet of Sri thiru  vEngadan
through "un adikkku keezh amarntu pugunthEnE", he was awarded
mOksham  only  through  the  siddhOpAyam  of  Sri  than oppAr
illappan. This was recorded by his own admission citing that,
"thathanan  thana thAL nizhalE".

     It was Sri AchArya hrudhayam then and now it is adiyEn's
AchArya's aruL that led me to arrive at yet another anubavam.
Sri nammAzhwAr waited for Sri ArA amuthan for several reasons.
Among them, the main reason is such that, it was going  to be
Sri  ArA  amuthan who would be the "drAvida sruthi darsagan".
Sri  ArA  amuthan  is  the  one who will "revive" the drAvida
vEdham  once again at a later date by HIS divine command.  It
is  recalled  from  the AchArya guru pArampariyam that it was
Sri ArA amuthan who ordered Sri nammAzhwAr to re-deliver  all
the prabhandams to Sri nAthamuni. It is a striking fact  that
Sri ArA amuthan is not only the perumAL for Sri nammAzhwAr.
