Dear friends,
A dear member faxed me a copy of what he says is the
published "tiruppAvai-archana". It is a "garland" of
"bhagavan-nAmA-s" culled out from the text of the
"tiruppAvai". There are 56 "nAmA-s" which AndAl used
and reciting them ("archanA") is probably what
"pirAtti" really meant when she sang "uttaman pEr
pAdi" (Verse#3). Here are the 56 "nAmA-s" as they
appear in the order of the 30 stanzas:

1. nandagopan kumaran      2. yasodai iLan singam
3. nArAyanan               4. paraman
5. Ongi ullagalanda uttaman6. Uzhi mudalvan

Those of you who are not so familiar with Tamil
language and yet would like to learn the tiruppAvai,
would do well to learn first the above "nAmAvali".
Adiyen is sure that once you have learnt the above,
and persevere with the tiruppAvai, the stanzas will
flow into your mind easily.

Good Luck and God Bless!
dAsan,
Sampathkumaran
