NALAYIRA DIVYA PRABANDHAM IN WITH MEANING PDF

Composed by the Azhwars, literally the God-immersed, the Prabandham sings the praise of Narayana or Vishnu and his many forms. Due to their divinity they are called as divya Prabhandas. It was compiled in its present form by Nathamuni during the 9th — 10th centuries. The work is the beginning of the canonization of the 12 Vaishnava poet saints, and these hymns are still sung extensively even today. The shrines in which these divine prabhandhas were sung are known as the Divya Desams. These Prabhandas once thought of being lost were collected and organized in the form of an anthology by Nathamuni.

Alwars[ edit ] Festive image of Nammazhwar The word alwar means the one who dives deep into the ocean of the countless attributes of god. The religious works of these saints in Tamil , songs of love and devotion, are compiled as Nalayira Divya Prabandham containing verses and the temples revered in their songs are classified as Divya Desam.

According to these texts, the saints were considered incarnations of some form of Vishnu. The songs of Prabandam are regularly sung in all the Vishnu temples of South India daily and also during festivals.

The alwars were also instrumental in promoting the Bhagavatha cult and the two epics of India, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. According to legend, as a child he responded to no external stimuli and his parents left him at the feet of the deity of Sri Adhinathar in Alwarthirunagari. The child then got up and climbed into a hole in a tamarind , sat in the lotus position , and began to meditate.

It appears he was in this state for as long as sixteen years when a Tamil poet and scholar in named Madhurakavi Alvar was born in Thirukolur and had travelled to North India on a temple trip.

As he was performing his Nitya Anushtanam one day, he saw a bright light shining to the south, and followed it until he reached the tree where the boy was residing. Nammalwar broke his lifelong silence and responded, "That it will eat, it will rest!

It is believed that in the Kali yuga, the doors of vaikuntam the supreme abode was opened first time for him by Sriman Narayanan himself and it is believed that the followers of Swami Nammalwar have the most easy access to the supreme abode. Nammalwar was one of the twelve alwar poet-saints who immersed themselves in a love of Vishnu and who had a considerable knowledge of ancient Tamil literature and its variants of traditional stories concerning Vishnu and his associates, as well as the philosophical differences between Buddhism , Hinduism and Jainism.

These works consisted of 1, poems, making him the most prolific contributor to the 4, hymns written by the Alvar poet-saints.

Introduction

Though He was the supremely independent master of the nithyasUris eternally free souls and mukthAthmAs liberated souls , he wanted to rid himself of the one agony he had. That agony is him suffering for the suffering of the bound souls in the material world. Him being the supreme father of every one, he was unable to bear the suffering of his children who are caught in the cycle of birth and death in the material world. Our AchAryas have explained that him feeling the pain for the suffering souls is also his auspicious quality.
