Re: THIRUMANN

I have seen a few explanations for this question.
But the one that stuck most in my mind was one I 
heard in a upanyAsam: 

"thanathu adiyArkaL virumpi aNivathaiyE thAnum 
ukanthu aNikiRAn".

"He relishes wearing that which His Bhakthas wear
with joy (and pride)".

The second part I am not sure about. Pretty much
most of the kshethrams I have been to, moolavar
has adorned thirumaN and srichoornam.
