Hello,
 	I am continuing the ongoing series on thiruvallikkENi by posting the
	10 pAsurams from periya thirumozhi. This is by our beloved sri
	thirumaN^gai AzhwAr as a maN^gaLAsAsanam on the thiruvallikkENi
	dhivya dhEsam. The first 9 of 10 pAsurams end with "thiruvallikkENi
	kaNdEnE". In the first portion AzhwAr talks about the greatness of
	the perumAl, his kalyANa guNAs, and expresses his immense pleasure.
	Then at the end he says, "I am blessed to have the dharshan of the
	perumAl at this exquisite place called thiruvallikkENi".

PS:
	I am indeed blessed to be born at this dhivya dhEsam (and hence my
	last name Triplicane!) When i told my grandfather that i am called
	Mr. Triplicane by the westerners here, he felt so happy that i have
	created an opportunity for these veLLaikArans (the whites) to
	atleast tell the name of the dhivya dhEsam. This was my
	grandfather's first response.
