thirup pAvai - part 68 - thuNaiyAga vArugaL

Dear bAgawathAs,

	As said above both in tamil and english, I am  unable 
to do any justice to this 1st pAsuram  itself.  During  every  
mArgazhi in Srirangam there   will  be  atleast a  dozen (12) 
thirup pAvai kAlakshEbams going on  simultaneously.  Not  one
kAlakshEbam  will  repeat  the  others.  Everyone  will  tell 
different swApadEsams. These efforts are going on every year. 
People are still finding new facts on thirup pAvai even after 
several centuries. In the same spirit i extend an  invitation 
to my  senior friends Sri SadagOpan to come on board and take 
from here to write a summary of thse 66 posts and the concept 
of arttha panchagam embedded in the first pAsuram. I  request
my another senior colleague Sri Anbil Ramswamy to write  from
his  vast kAlaskhEbam experience to quote a few that were not
covered in this first pAsuram vyAkyAnams that are not covered
by adiyEn so far. 

	I wish  and  request  everyone  to   stick  to  first 
pAsuram only for now. I request Sri  Varadhan  to  write  the 
verbattum from Sri Azhagiya maNavALap perumAL nAyanAr and Sri 
Periya vAcchAn pillai's vyAkyANams namely 4000 and 6000 padis
and translate them as well in english and his own insights as
well. I request our Sri MadhavakkaNNan to write a single page
text of  this  original  pAsuram  in  tamil  and  as  well  a 
paragraph  of  the  meanings  concisely  as  he used to do. I 
request our Sri Mani to present his hard work on patha  vurai
that was thoughtfully made for  this  1st  pAsuram  such that 
(sAmAnyAL) ordinary non tamil speaking folks will be able  to
appreciate this as well. 

	I request Sri Dileepan, Sri Badri,  Sri TA Venkatesh,
Sri  Srikanth  of  India,  Smt  Subadra  of  Canada,  Sri  MG 
Srinivasan of Trichy, Sri Chandrasekar, Sri Viji, Sri  Anand,
Sri Jagan, Sri Sridhar Srinivasan of texas  and  other  tamil
thudippunArvus that I may not know of  all of  them  to  join 
this thiru  vizhA of thirup pAvai 1st pasuram and write their
feelings. adiyEn intend to pass at the end of  my  vyAkyAnams 
for each pAsuram and take this pulse input.  adiyEN thank you
all for your patient listening and let me take  a  back  seat 
and enjoy the various friends "unarcchis" (pulses)  before  I 
start again with the second pAsuram in 10 days.
