In  continuation  of  the  information  on  thirup   paanaazhwaar  and

In some places I am not able to get the exact equivalent english word.
I request the Tamil  scholars in this group to suggest on such  words.
eg.  "paa", and "thanmai".  I am not sure if my english words for that
are correct in the context of the mentioned paasurams.
