Of our ANDAL. He blessed us with 473 paasurams including
ThiruppallANDu , which is extensively used in NithyAnusandhAnam.
His enjoyment of the leelais of Bala KrishNan in his role as
YasOdhA PirAtti are housed in many decads of his Prabhandhams.
His valedictory address to ThiruvenkatamudayAn (SenniyOngu
Paasurams) and His NeerAttam/Thirumanjanam ,Poochhootal,
Kaappidal paasurams are some of the most moving paasurams of 

the NaalAyira Dhivya prabhandham.
