Dear BhakthAs:

You would enjoy the attaced inputs from SrimAn Hari Sarangarajan
of Singapore on the FOUR prabhandhams of Swamy NammazhwAr .
Here it is !

Sriman Hari is performing Bhagavath Vishaya KaalakshEpam and
Srimath Rahasya Thraya Saara kaalkshEpams for devotees at 
Singapore now besides teaching the BhakthAs there about 
Bhagavath AarAdhanam and other nithya karmAs like
the performance of SandhyA vandhanam .Thanks Sri Hari for 
your substantive and most appreciated Kainkaryams .

Daasan, SatakOpan

>1. Tiru-vAi-mOzhi's first 21 (paasurams) talk about the concepts as told
>in SArIraka SAstra (ref adhikaraNa sArAvali's srashtA dEhi swanishta...

>has 21 sAkas
>2. Tiru-vAi-mOzhi has 100 tens (dasakams) and each of 100 dasakam
>talks about a particular concept of ViSishtAdvaita. The entire
>100 tens impart knowledge which is 101th concept "SrIman NArAyaNa's
>lotus feet is the upAyam". Therefore tiru-vAi-mOzhi has yajur
>vEda sAmyam which has 101 sAkAs.
>3. Tiru-vAi-mOzhi has 1000 pAsurams (above it) "Sahasra sAkOpanishad
>samAgamam namAmyaham drAvida vEda sAgaram". Therefore, Tiru-vAi-mOzhi
>has sAma vEda sAmyam which has 1000 sAkAs.
>4. Tiru-vAi-mOzhi has SAnthi rasam as pradAnam (important). The
>rest of rasas (namely SrungAra etc) which are 8 in number are held
>here as angams of SAnthi rasam. Therefore, Tiru-vAi-mOzhi has
>atharvaNa vEda sAmyam which has 8 sAkAs.
