I found an interesting Web page for those who
appreciate cross-cultural studies of religion:

http://fmwww.bc.edu/SJ/fxcstudies.html

It is a semi-autobiographical note by Francis Clooney,
an ordained Jesuit priest, who fell in love with
Nammalvar and Tiruvaymoli and spent years studying
it along with the commentaries in Madras.

By the way, his book, "Seeing through texts", is
wonderful for those who want to find out an outsider's 
experience with Tiruvaymoli. (listed on the books
