Dear Sri.Satakopan mama and Sri.Madhavakkannan:

Pranams!

The postings by you are very much enjoyable with the way you 
have narrated. 

I remember about the Anubavam of Nammaazhwar on Tirukkurungudi 
Nambi when talking about his Tirumeni.

eNGNGanEyO annai meergaaL!
  ennai munivadhunNeer?,
nangaLkOlath thiruk kuRungudi
  nambiyai naaNnkandapin,
sanginOdum nEmi yOdum
  thaamaraik kaNgaLodum,
senganivaa yonRi Nnodum
  selginRa thennNenchamE.

The pasurams on Nambi are really a Great ANUBAVAM of Azhwar 
that he enjoys perumal to the highest degree.

Thanks very much for valuable postings,

Sri Ramanuja Dasan,
Ramanan
