May I ask why Lokasaaranga, the priest who committed the
great apachaara of both physically and verbally abusing
the greatest of bhaktas ThiruppaaN Azhvaar, is called
Lokasaaranga *Muni*? The title "Muni" is usually reserved
for people of great learning and devotion, such as Vyaasa,
Alavandaar, and Ramanuja. It seems that none of these
attributes were present in Lokasaaranga.
