Dear Prapatti Group members: Today is the great day, when a Parama Vaisnava , who performed Saranagathi at the lotus feet of Sri Ramachandra became a Nitya Suri to offer his Kainkaryam. I am referring ofcourse to Saint Thygaraja of Thiruvaiyaaru, whose 149th anniversary we are celebrating today ! . Vast is the repertoire of his songs, where the Various Angas of Saranagathi practised by him are housed.. It will take us a long tome to focus on the deep Sri Vaishnavite principles contained in his Songs . The Second Pancha Ratnam is a classical example of the statement of the limbs of Saranagathi and his practise of Saranagathi.
