3.THE TRIBUTE TO THE ACHARYA PARAMPARAI (GHOSHTI VANDHANAM)
Since AchArya Paramparai branches out into different paths after Bhagavath RaamAnujA, Swamy Desikan salutes the lineage of AchAryAs common to all.
My AchAryans performed sadhupadEsams (beneficial instructions) and pointed out the most important truth that my aathmA is the eternal servant to the Lord. I salute my immediate AchAryan and his AchArya Paramparai /lineage starting with BhAshyakArar and ascending from then on to Periya Nampi, AlavanthAr, MaNakkAl Nampi, UyyakkoNDAr, Naatha Muni, NammAzhwAr, VishvaksEnar, Periya PirAtti and ending up with SrIman NaarAyaNan as ParamAchAryan. adiyEn performs SaraNAgathi through the AchAryaParamaprai to SrIman NaarAyaNan.
The Key passage of this Paasuram is: “Yenn uyir tanthu aLitthavarai SaraNam pukki –ivarai munnittu EmperumAn ThiruvadigaL adaihinREnE”.
4.THE DEVOTION TO THE SRI SOOKTHIS OF BHASHYAKARAR
After saluting all the AchAryAs in the Guru Paramparai starting with his own AchAryan and
ending up with the Lord as the ParamAchAryan for all, Swamy Desikan acknowledges the
special upakArams of SrI BhAshyakArar, AlavanthAr and Naatha MunigaL with one
paasurams to each of the three.
Sri BhAshyakArar destroyed the noisy debates of Haithukars (who ignore core pramANams like VedAs and demand the reasons/hEthus for whatever we comment about), who interpret VedAnthAms as their wandering minds direct. To them (haithukars), SrI BhAshyakArar was like the mighty elephant in rut that toppled the banana trees. We who are deeply rooted in AchArya RaamAnujA’s SrI Sookthis will not consider even by mind any act that are prohibited by BhagavAn’s SaasthrAs.
