10 AzhwArs

madhuravaki-andal-emperumanarmadhurakavi AzhwAr, ANdAL, emperumAnAr

This divine slOkam was rendered by srI parAsara bhattar when he was in thirukkOttiyUr with nanjIyar. He left srIrangam due to the disturbances given by the local king, vIra sundhara brahma rAyan. At that time, out of the unbearable separation from srIranganAthan, bhattar complied this slOkam and the thanians of thiruppAvai to immerse himself in bhagavath/bhAgavatha anubhavam.

In this slOkam, in addition to identifying the 10 AzhwArs (poigai AzhwAr, bhUthathAzhwAr, pEyAzhwAr, thirumazhisai AzhwAr, nammAzhwAr, kulasEkara AzhwAr, periyAzhwAr, thoNdaradippodi AzhwAr, thiruppANAzhwAr and thirumangai AzhwAr), he also identifies ANdAL using the word “srI”, madhurakavi AzhwAr using the word “misra” (very learned/respected) and rAmAnujar using yathIndhrar.

The AzhwArs in order are:

  1. poigai AzhwAr
  2. bhUdhathAzhwAr (bhUdhaththAzhwAr)
  3. pEyAzhwAr
  4. thirumazhisai AzhwAr
  5. madhurakavi AzhwAr
  6. nammAzhwAr
  7. kulasEkarAzhwAr
  8. periyAzhwAr
  9. ANdAL
  10. thoNdaradippodi AzhwAr
  11. thiruppANAzhwAr
  12. thirumangai AzhwAr

An e-book is available with the full charithram and vaibhavam of AzhwArs and srI rAmAnujar and can be viewed/downloaded from: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByVemcKfGLucWWdDZkhYMUVaUk0/edit.
