Sri PerumdEvi ThAyAr SamEtha Sri VaradarAja SwaminE Nama:

adiyEn will list the 108 NaamAvaLis first and
then add the meanings of these Sacred Naamams 
after each of these 108 NaamAs.

adiyEn requests the Sanskrit scholars to forgive 
the grammatical errors that might have crept up in 
the construction of these NaamAvaLis due to my 
own Sanskrit language deficencies .

These NaamaavaLIs incorporate KurEsar's and 
Swamy Desikan's SthOthra grantham passages:
