Mathura Kavigal Sarrumurai at Thiruvallikkeni

Mathura Kavigal Sarrumurai at Thiruvallikkeni 

Today, 12th May 2014  is ‘chithiraiyil chithirai’ [Chitra Nakshathiram in the month of Chithirai] and hence the birthday of Sri Madhurakavi Azhwar.  He was born in Thirukkolur as incarnation of Sri Garuda. He sang only one divyaprabandham ~ ‘Kanninun Chiruthambu’ consisting of only 11 hymns;  his life was intertwined with that of Sri NammAzhwar.

His pasurams were on ‘Kurugaip Piran’ – Swami Nammalwar himself.  He as a disciple was attracted to the holy feet of Swami Nammazhwar  and claimed that he knew none and nothing else than his Acharyar……. ~an exceptional piece of guru bakthi. 

கண்டு கொண்டென்னைக் காரிமாறப்பிரான்
பண்டை வல்வினை பாற்றியருளினான்
எண்டிசையு மறிய இயம்புகேன்
ஒண்தமிழ்ச் சடகோபனருளையே.

Azhwar in his exalted state claims that  Nammalwar, the son of Kari transformed him ( a person who was not worthy of any values) by taking care  and being considerate towards him and removed him of his sins by guiding him to the right path, hence he will loudly proclaim the glory of the kindness of the one who is the source of sweet Tamil poets , spreading his fame in all directions (that is he would sing in praise of Nammalwar only)

On his sarrumurai day, Mathurakavi azhwar had purappadu with Sri Parthasarathi

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
