Dear Sri Amaraprabhu Dasa :

If no one has responded to your queries sofar
On Thirumangai's Paasurams on the Dhivya dEsam of
SaaLigrAm , I will be happy to respond to them 
and provide a summary of the meanings of the ten
Paasurams. The transliterated copy of the slOkams
are in Bhakthi archives. Two members of
the group have visited Saalagram recently .
One of them can help you regarding the travel details .
I am not familiar with the source of GaNtaki river.

There are ten verses (Paasurams ) that Thirumangai AzhwAr
blessed us with .They are part of Periya Thirumozhi : 1.5
Thirumangai was the last of the twelve AzhwArs and his time
is Ninth Century A.D. according to historians .

Best wishes,
