NadhAdhUr ammAL
****************

Here, NadadhUr AzhwAn's grandson , VaradhachAr was 
born by the grace of Lord VaradarAjan . He became
the AchAryan for ApuLLar , the uncle of Swamy Desikan ,
Sudarsana Soori ( the author of Srutha prakAsikai ) ,
vadakku Thiruveedhip PiLLai of Srirangam    

=================================x=====================================

Please note that Vadakku Thiruveedhip piLLai was not the Sishya of
NaDAdhUr ammAL. He was a direct sishyA of NampiLLaI. Swamy emberumAnAr 
had many sishyAs as everybody knows. Each and every SishyA had a sishyA 
or sishyAs for them and that is how the " emberumAnAr dharisanam" grew. 

Noteable among those sishyAs are KooratthAzhwAn, MudhaliAnDAn, EmbAr, 
NaDAdhUrAzhwAn, ThirukkurugaipiranpiLLAn, and many others (the list is too
long). Of this NaDAdhUrAzhwAn had a sishyA named DEvarAja PerumAL and 
ThirukkurugaipiranpiLLAn had sishyA named EngaLAzhwAn. NaDAdhUr AmmAL who was
also the Grandson of NaDAdhUrAzhwAn was a sishyA of both DEvarAja PerumAL and
EngaLAzhwAn. Swami Desikan falls in this lineage. 

The famous Bhattar, Son of KooratthAzhwAn was a sishyA of EmbAr.Nanjeeyar was
the sishyA of Bhattar, The Great NampiLLai was the sishyA of  Nanjeeyar.
NampiLLai had sishyAs of which some are, NaDuvil Thiruveedhi bhattar, Vadakku
Thiruveedhip piLLai,EeyuNNi mAdhavar, parama karuNigarAna PeriyaVacchAn
piLLai, pinbazhagiya perumAL jeeyar and etc. 

So Vadakku Thiruveedhip piLLai is a sishyA of NampiLLai and not NadAdhUr
ammAL. The lineage from here goes like this. Vadakku Thiruveedhip PiLLai had
two great sons,one is the AshTAdasa Rahasya Pravakthar PiLLai LOkAchAryar and
the other is Azhagiya MaNavALa perumAL nAyaNar whose work is the great
"AchArya Hrudayam". KoorakulOtthama dAsar was one of the sishyAs of PiLLai
LOkAchAryar. He had a sishyA ThiruvAimozhip piLLai who is the AchAryan of Sri
MaNavALa mAmunigaL.
