Yesterday was Bhoota AzhwAr's Thirunakshatram and today is Peyi AzhwAr's Thirunakshatram. The only episode in the lives of these three AzhwArs that I am aware of is when Peyi AzhwAr was caught in a thunderstorm, He lost whatever little clothing he had left to the forces of nature and found a shelter from the rain which had just enough room for Him to lie down and take rest. A short while later he heard a knock and Bhuta AzhwAr requested shelter. There was not enough room for both of them to lie down but they could both sit comfortably. A while later there was one more knock and this time Poigai AzhwAr was wating outside. There was not enough room for all three of them to sit but all three could stand comfortably and get protection from the rain. A short while later there was one more knock and a person from outside wanted to get in. There was absolutely no room in the shack and the three AzhwArs decided to come out and stand in the rain rather than turn away a guest. The fourth individual happened to be NarAyana. Can anybody throw more light on the life of these AzhwArs besides this one incident? For anybody who would like to observe but does not have the information tomorrow is Ekadashi. Jaganath.
