		:Om Namo Narayanaya:
Dear Sri Rajaram,
	The meaning of the word Azhwar is "Protector".
	Azhwars came to this earth when Bhakti was at the end stage in all of us.
	They reestablished roots to the devotion on this earth when it was in end
stage.
	Thats why they got the name Azhwars. If they were not there people may not
have faith in god by this time.
