I would like to bring to your enjoyment the VinshNu chittthar's-
PeriyAzhwAr's PallaaNdu "TheeyiR poliginRa se~nchudar Azhi thigazh
thiruch chakkaratthin kOil poRiyaalE oRRuNdu ninRu kudikudi 
ATcheyginROm....."

The thaapa samsakaram is referred here. Isn't it?

(And ThirumangaiAzhwAr's Manthra samsakaram was from Sriya: Pathi Himself. 
ThiruppANAzhwAr all samsakarams are in the Azhagiya MaNavaaLar sannidhi 
itself. Thirumazhisai vandha jyOthi must have been initiated by PEyAzhwAr. 
ANdAL- by PeriyAZhwAr? NammAzhwAr by Sri VishvaksEnar.- Please correct me )

Narayana Narayana
