> MaNi writes > Periyalvar even sings of his daughter having been taken > away by the Lord in one of his paasurams. [Can someone > supply the paasuram?] This certainly sounds like an > autobiographical note, composed by the Alvar after his > beloved daughter married her Lord and went to paramapadam. MaNi probably is referring to the periyaazhvaar thirumozhi - 3rd paththu 7th and 8th thirumozhis. In the 7th thirumozhi, (aiyap puzhudhi), periyaazhvaar takes the role of a mother whose daughter is smitten with love for the Lord. [ In the previous paththu, naavalam periya, periyaazhvaar thakes thaamaan thanmai]. In the penultimate paasuram of this thirumozhi, the relatives of the girl, on seeing the state of her longing for the Lord, decide to take her and leave her with KaNNapiraan. That is described by aazhvaar in that paasuram. Our poorvachaaryaas say that even after that, the mother did not take the girl to emperumaan. But, emperumaan himself comes to their home, and takes her away to aayarppaadi. When the mother did not find her daughter the next day, she laments that some calamity might befall her daugher. She has so many doubts about the wellbeing of her daugher. That is the 8th thirumozhi - nallathOr thaamaraip poigai. This is an extremely beautiful thirumozhi. In the first paasuram, the mother laments about not finding her daugher, and questions if her daugher is in thiruvaayppaadi. In the second paasuram, she laments about whether any bad name will befall on her family since kaNNan took her daughter to aayppaadi. In the third paasuram, she wonders whether the people of aayppadi will celebrate her daughter... and so on.. I am attaching the 10 paasurams from the divya prabhandham page.
