Dearest Sisters and borthers,

What an anubhavam from Sri Vasan on the temple at Poovirundha valli! In 
fact, when I read last night further about Thirukkacchi nambhi's life, 
(after posting the earlier post), I read one more interesting event. 
This matches with what Sri Vasan has written. 

Actually Nambhi's parents were against his going after Varadaraja 
PerumAL and not pursuing the family business interests. 

When the parents came to know of Nambhi's great bhakti, and in 
conversing terms with Varadan, they apologised to Nambhi and invited him 
to come back to Poovirundha valli. Nambhi went and asked the same to 
Varadaraja PerumAL. It is told Varadan, and PerundhEvi(in the name of 
Pushpavalli thaayaar) appeared before the parents and Nambhi at 
Poovirundha valli, and thus, the temple, about which Sri Vasan is 
beuatifully writing about.
