Sri Amudhan SamprOkshanam and ChAthur mAsya sankalpam - Part 15

	adiyEn had a detailed chat with a sAdhu who came with
us as a guide for visiting all  the  nava thirupathis. He was
kind enough to provide me  enough  details on  Sri nammAzhwAr
that I could not find in any literatures including guru pAram
pariyam. adiyEn was given with a 14th  century  work  on  Sri
magara nedum kuzhai kAthar perumAL of then thirupErai by some
one. It is known as "magara nedum kuzhai kAthar pA mAlai" and
it  had  108 pasurams. adiyEn was talking about that with the
sAdhu and  explained  to him about adiyEn's interest in those
pasurams.

       At the very end of the trip holy sAdhu mentioned to me
that he has in his possession a very rare  work  on  Sri namm
AzhwAr from the previous centuries and that he wanted  adiyEn
to take a look at it. adiyEn went to his kudil. It was on the
banks of thamira barani and there was absolutely no furniture
or electricity or anything in that place. sAdhu lived all his
life in the temple and by partaking from the prasAdhams alone.

He said he  is waiting for permAL to take him to Srivaikundam
as he is old (80 + years). The "nool"  was  hand  written  in
terse and poetical  tamil with "42" aboorva keertthanai,  all
of them on Sri nammAzhwAr. adiyEN  really  liked  them.  Each
keertthanais  had all the required meters  in tamil  such  as
charaNam  and  pallavai  delivered  and as well unique rAgams
and  thAlAm  specified.  Our   sAdhu  said he was waiting for
years  to  entrust this to someone who can really publish but
in vain.  He  entrusted  adiyEn with  the  responsibility  of
publishing  these  suitably. adiyEn  received this as the one
of best prashAdam from Sri nammAzwAr,  in  my  visit  to nava thirupathis.
