     Dear  Satish and other BhagavathALs,
    
     Namo NArAyanA . kindly accept adiyens pranAmams. 

     Adiyen feels  that Swami Desikan has answered this
question in his VaradarAja PanchAsat .

  "Oh VaradA ! Doyens among sages , of unfailing wisdom , found themselves
unequal to the task of capturing , in words, Your splendor and stood
merely dazed ! And on such a subject , namely Yourself , now I take a deep
dive , - a daring venture indeed ! - to compose a hymn. May I be forgiven
for this adventurous act ! "  ( sloka 2 )

  Swami Desikan  says that AzhvArs were at loss of words , because
of Lord Varadans splendor and thats why they didn't  specifically name Him
and sing Varadans praise ! One certainly needs to go the bhAvA of AzhvArs
and Desikan to understand these intimate relationships between Varadan and
His dear devotees.PeraruLALan is mystics of all mystics ( AzhvArs are
mystic saints) ; the leelAs of both these type of mystics cannot be
understood by mortals ( if they are keen in applying materialistic
logic);but the same mortals can understand these things with great ease if 
they faithfully follow the AchAryAs (spiritual logic).  

    
     The pAsurams referred by Sri Sadagopan  on PeraruLALan , doesn't
explicitly has the name of varadan in it , because of the above mentioned
reason (according to adiyens understanding).
