Thanls for this information. I would like to know if the following three Mudalis: 66. ammangi ammaaL 67. paruththi koLLai ammaaL 68. ukkalam ammaaL are women as the names sound like. Also was this tradition continued unto some later time as well. In the Alzhwaars the ratio of Vaishnava to Sree is 11:1 and in the Mudalis it is 71:3, now it is perhaps (4+?):0! This brings another point which Mr. Sreenivasan brought out: "Shiva Vishishtadvaita" founded as Veerashaivism by Basvanna. In their tradition they have a few female characters such as Akka Maha Devi among the noted Shiva Sharanas.
