Re: Being 'aiyanGAr'.

Friends,

In paraphrasing the SlOkam "tApa: puNDras-tathA nAma ...", I forgot to touch
'nAma' which, as everyone knows, is simply the 'dAsya-nAmam' (the
initiate-specific name, like, 'rAmAnuja-dAsa') given by the AchArya who
administers the 'samASrayaNa' rite.    Akin to the Srivaishnava 'paribhAshA'
of 'aiyanGAr', there is a community of 'ashTa-chhApi' vaishNava-s in
Mathura, the Sri-kRshNa-jannma-kshEtram, and they apparently adorn
themselves in eight parts, as compared to the Srivaishnava twelve
Urdhva-puNDram.

aDiyEn rAmAnuja-dAsan,
tirumanjanam Sundara Rajan
at Srirangam.
