Jai Sriman Narayana
While both Kurathazhvan and Periya nambi were returning to Sri Rangam after the saiva king plucks their eyes, due to old age, periya nambis health was failing rapidly. His daughter Athuzhai and Swami Kurathazhvan request him to hold his life till he reaches Sri Rangam. Periya nambi immediately stops and decides to give up his life then and there. He says if some one hears this incident and concludes that one has to be in Sri Rangam (or any dhivya dhEsam) to give up his life that will only limit a Sri Vaishnavas glory. Azhvar says “vaikuNtam a:gum tham u:rella:m” (வைகுந்தம் ஆகும் தம் ஊரெல்லாம்) – wherever a srivaishnava is, that place becomes vaikuntham. How great indeed, are our acharyas who follow the words of their acharyas to the spirit. Periya Nambi thiruvadigale Saranam.
