Today, 21-11-2010, Kruthigai Karthigai – Thirumangai Azhwar Thirunakshathram. Last of the 12 Azhwars and the Azhwar who sang most no of pAsurams (apart from nammazhwar) and travelled to 80+ divyadesham in his vaahanam (horse, name aadalmaa) and also took lot of efforts in building srirangam temple, started the adhyAyana uthsavam etc
Thirumangai Mannan is an important Azhwar for Ahobilam as well and naturally for its Mutt (Sri Ahobila Mutt), as the Azhwar did mangalasaasanam in this kshethram (comes in sambavanai kramam of the Sri matam). When listening to the vaibhavam of this Azhwar, for sure everyone will fall in love with him. Many Divyakshethrams has Vedu pari in their brahmothsavam. Let us hail Kaliyan who did enormous kaingaryams to Vaishnavism. Kaliyan apart from that also prophesied the birth of Swami Desikan 🙂 Kaliyan thiruvadigale saranam.
