This Acharya has been instrumental in restoring the 4000 divine verses of Azhvars. Who is he? Hint today is his Tirunakshattiram
One day during a temple visit Sriman Nathamuni listened to devotees singing divine verses for Aravamudan which ended as these 10 out of 1000 songs. He asked if the devotees knew the rest of the verses . He was so impressed with the poetic beauty and wanted to find the rest. He was guided to visit the disciple of MadhuraKavi Azhvar, a Parankusa dasar who directed him to recite the Kanninun Siruthaambu . Sriman Nathamuni recited it 12000 times in Alwar Tirunagari the birth place of Swami Nammazhvar. He was provided the insight to the verses of all the Azhvars (4000 in number)from the holy saint Swami Nammazhvar himself. Swami Nathamuni set all of them to music and also revived the Adyayana Utsavam instituted by Tirumangai Azhvar.
Sriman Nathamuni (Birth month/star : Aani Anusham ) was the one who restored the 4000 divine verses that got lost. He is one of the foremost acharya of Sri Vaishnava sampradaya and is instrumental in inaugurating devotional Vaishnavism.
