SrimathE RaamAnujAya Nama:

Dear BhakthAs: 

Srimans MadhavakkaNNan and Hari of Singapore have
paid their tributes already to Mudhal AzhwArs , whose
birth days fall uopn November 4 , 5 and 6 . They have
an advantage indeed in being 12 hours ahead of 
USA time Zone in the East Coast . They alert us
early on Thirunakshathrams and special days 
that are important to Sri VaishNavAs.Our Thanks
to them for their much appreciated Kaimkaryams.

As Mudhal AzhwArs (the first AzhwArs) , they 
had an unque experience of communion and bodily
contact with the Lord of ThirukkovalUr revered as
" Mathil Kovil Idaikkazhi Aayan ". Their aanandhAnubhAva
ParivAham ( the ecstatic flow of their aanndha
anubhavam ) poured out of their lips in the form
of the three hundred verses housed in their Three 
ThiruvandhAthis .

Swamy Desikan celebrated the glories of the three
AzhwArs in a SthOthra Grantham named DehaLIsa Sthuthi"
and paid tribute to the Lord of ThirukkovalUr , who
pressed the three AzhwArs in a narrow space of a passage
way of a Maharishi's house at His dhivya desam . Swamy
Desikan went on to write a grantham known as 
"Saccharithra rakshA " at this dhivya dEsam of 
ThirukkOvalUr dear to the three AzhwArs , Poygai,
BhUtham and PEy . 

Back in the time period from Aug 9 to November , 1997 
adiyEn had the Bhaagyam to  post 15 articles on 
the Vaibhavam of the Mudhal AzhwArs, ThirukkOvalUr 
Dhivya dEsams and the 28 slOkams of Sri DehalIsa Sthuthi of
Swamy Desikan .These are archived now in Bhakthi List 
and here are the details for those , who wish to
browse them during the occasion of the Thirunakshathram
of the Mudhal AzhwArs during this Vikrama year 
dear to the Thrivikrama PerumAL of ThirukkOvalUr :

Part 1: Introduction to DehalIsa Sthuthi : Aug 3, 1997
Part 2: Vedic Salutation to Thrivikraman:  Aug 9 , 1997
Part 3.1: Vaamana/Thrivikrama avathAram:   Aug 16 ,1997
Part3.2:  Swamy Desikan's tribute to DehaLisan: Sep 11,1997
Part 4-15: Slokam by Slokam coverage of The DehaLIsa Sthuthi
           of Swamy Desikan : ( Sep 12, 13,14,19,20, 23 ,
           October 18, November 7 and 8 of 1997).

There is a wealth of information assembled there
with the anugraham of AzhwArs, AchAryans and 
the SaraNya dampathis as adiyEn's prayerful tribute to 
the Mudhal AzhwArs and the Lord of ThirukkOvalUr , 
who got them started in the creation of their 
respective AndhAthis to illuminate our paths .
