Dear Bhakthas,

I have read and heard in an Upanayasam the incidence which took place 
in Thirukozhtiyur-Ramanuja's discourse on the meanings of 
sarmamanthra gained from Thirukozhtiyur Nambigal, to the public of 
Thirukoztiyur at the temple gopuram.
adiyean has been confronted with another version, which is from a 
book written by someone in North India about Elya perumal, which 
states that the dhvyam-om namo narayana was given to elya perumal by 
someone call gothinpurna and this was given to the public from the 
temple towers.

can anyone enlighten adiyean about this with few references.
