Dear BhAgawathAs

I have two questions.

Question #1:
I understand that the Thaniyans such as

"Srisailesa Dayapathram deebakdyadhi
guNArNavam......." and "Ramanuja DayapAtram gyAna
vairAgya bhooshaNam......." were added to the 4000
Diwya Prabhandam after the times of NadhamunigaL.  

I wonder what was the beginning/starting paasuram of
the 4000 diwya prabhandam before the dhaniyans were

Can anyone educate me on this ?

Question #2

Also, I was very happy to read quite a lucid
description of our Guruparamparai at  Thanks to all involved in
creating the web site, it certainly helps people like
me with limited tamil reading skills to understand more
about our sampradaayam.  

I was also reading the Vadakali-Thenkalai Doctrinal
differences presented excellently by Sri. Mani Varadarajan and
Sri. Anbil Ramaswamy at
There it is said that the doctrinal differences crept up
about 100 years after the times of ManavaaLamaamunigaL in one, 
however the other says that it is between the times of
"Emberumaanar and Swami Desikan".  I wonder which
interpretation is correct ? Do we have any evidences ?
I am sorry, I might be starting that has already been discussed
on this forum. If so, can any one please refer me to the 
appropriate Bhakti Digest.
