Mannu pugazh manavALa mAmunivan Book release


This Aippasi Thirumoolam is the Thirunakshrtam of Sri Manavala Mamunigal,This acharyan’s charitram and vaibhavam was chronicled by Sri Pillailokam Jeeyar in his “Yatheendra Pravana Prabhavam” a work in Manipravala nadai generously sprinkled with Sanskrit pramanas. For the lame man interested in the charitram of Maamunigal, this text is extremely hard to decipher. With the intention of taking Mamunigal’s vaibhavam to the masses, Professor Sri. U.Ve Arangarajan of Madurai has not only translated Yatheendra pravana prabhavam into simple Tamizh but has also added more facts and interesting incidents prior to the Birth of Manavala Mamunigal.

Starting with the vaibhavam of Nampillai, the flow of Eedu from Nampillai to Mamunigal, the text goes on to describe the trying times of Srivaishnava world during Mughal invasion. A very elaborate coverage has been given to the parallel movement of the Acharyas and Srivaishavas during the time of Muslim invasion down south. Finally, focus is brought to the life of Maamunigal. The author dwells on each incident in the life of Maamunigal from His birth in the Land of Namazhwar to His assuming the Leadership of the Srivaishnava world in Srirangam. The writing is very lucid. The author has taken great pains to translate each Sanskrit shlokam of the original text to Tamizh thus retaining the originality.

Many places pictures and photos have been inserted to explain the context. The writing on the final days of Mamunigal is excellent and leaves the eyes moistened with tears.
