adiyen have a question. Is there no poorvAchAryAs of Sri Vaishnava 
Sampradhayam who has interpreted in a similar vein. Nammazhwar 
glorifies this name in his ThiruvAimozhi "ulagam uNda peruvAyA.." and 
Thirumangai AzhwAr in this Peria Thirumozhi in 10 pAsurams starting 
with "mainninRa karungadal vai.....".

I request all the great scholars in our list to enlighten adiyEn.

adiyEn RAmAnuja dAsan

Thirumalai Vinjamoor Venkatesh
