Sri Pillai Lokacharya is a Sri Vaishnava acharya and his Thirunakshatram is on Aiyppasi Tiruvoonam (c. 13th-14th centuries A.D.). Pillai Lokacharya’s primary disciples were Koorakuloththama Dasa, Manarpakkam Nambi, Kollikavala Dasa (Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Pillai), KotturilaNNar and Vilanjsolai Pillai. While Pillai Lokacharya lived in Srirangam maintaining Emperumanar’s Darsanam, the islamic invasion of the city occured. To save the temple and Periya Perumal, His sannidhi was covered with brick stones and a different vigraha was kept in front. Pillai Lokacharya left Srirangam along with Namperumal and Naccimars ahead of the invasion. While going through a forest they were attacked by thieves who stole all the jewellery and vessels of Namperumal. Pillai Lokacharya gave them everything he had and even rejected the items when they returned them to him. Happy that they left Namperumal with him, he continued on. They then reached a small town called Jyothishkudi. Here Pillai Lokacharya fell ill and reached His lotus feet. The year was 1311 CE and the day was jyEshtha suddha dvAdasi.
