shrii. shrii bhuuvaraaha parabrahmane namaH

Dear vaishhNavas,

Thanks a million to shrii. V.Sadagopan  for his excellent explanations 
of the shrii. varaaha carama shlokam. 

Thanks a zillion to shrii. varaaha bhagavaan and bhuumi devi for Their
causeless mercy towards fallen souls.

I wonder about the name "nitya-kalyaaNa-perumaaL" used for referring to
the varaaha bhagavaan at the tiruvidavendai divya desham ?

Does "nitya-kalyaaNa" here refer to the eternal auspicious qualities described
by shrii. raamaanujaacarya ?
[ i kind of remember that people worship the deities at tiruvidavendai 
  with (mundane?) conception to be blessed with (worldly?) marriage. ]

Also, would bhaagavata-s please explain meaning of the word, "tiruvidavendai" ?

Thanks,
