dear bhAgavathAs,

Here is some additional information regarding vaikAsi visAkham - AzhvAr's
thirunakshattiram - In AzhvAr thirunagari, srIrangam and kAnchipuram (I am assuming
this to be true for thiruvallikkENi too), AzhvAr's thirunakshattiram is celebrated
on June 14th. One should follow whatever day their AchArya paramparA follows.

AzhvAr emperumAnAr jIyar thiruvadigaLE saraNam,
adiyEn madhurakavi dAsan,

Varadhan
