Dear Bagavadas

It has long been our gurus used to convey their knowledge to only one
sishya and from their to other sishya in a tree. Through this
remarkable link only we were able to preserve all our great
literatures like Divya Prabandams.

It is evident from the pasuram in Upadesa Rathina Malai (Manavala
Manunigal) in

'Oranvazhiya Updasidar Munnoor ...'.

This tree is also to a great extent explained in Upadesa Rathina Malai
the following is the tree as I under stand.
