‘Let this sloka be recited at the beginning of all Divya prabhandam recitations … just as a Vedic recital begins and ends with the sacred ‘Om’ ordered LORD RANGANATHA

SriSailEsha dayA pAthram dheeibhakthyAdi guNarnavam
Yetheendra pravaNam vandE ramyajA mAtharam munim


Swamy Ramanuja  had to to complete the original assignment of 200 years as ordered by LORD to uplift fallen souls . With implicit obedience, Adishesha appeared to this world as Swami maNavALa mAmunikaL.     AdisEsha, in his previous incarnation as SriRamanuja, was very much fascinated by Nammazhvars’s appearance and his divine outpouring (thiruvA imozhi), and hence, earned the appellation “mAran adipaNindhu Uynthavan”. In keeping with this overwhelming love for  Swamy Nammazhvar, the second time around, AdisEsha selected Azhvar Thirunagari as the place most suited for his appearance (Swami Manavala Mamuni was the reincarnation of AdishEsha) This was shown in a manifest fashion to his nearest and dearest disciples. Hence we find in his Sri Rangam abode (mutt) a picture on a pillar inside the sanctum sanctorum, depicted as seated on the serpent AdishEsha with several hoods.


This proves beyond doubt that  swamy  is the reincarnation of Adishesha.SrisailEsha erected a temple at Azhvar-thirunagari for Swamy  Ramanuja and installed Swamys  idol, which had been presented to Sri Madhurakavi Azhvar and  laid  buried at the foot of the famous Tamarind tree Lord realized that this was His opportunity to capitalize and complete his long cherished desire. Lord seized the golden opportunity of Mamunikal’s arrival to the city of Sri Rangam & ordered him as follows,“You shall come to our temple & give a public discourse on the Eedu  (36000 padi), the super-commentary of Sri Nampillai on Thiruvaimozhi along with other commentaries, in your alluring style. You are the most qualified person for this task, as you have the good fortune of being trained by the esteemed acharya Sri SailEsha (Thiruvaimozhip pillai).


In order to accommodate unhindered conduct for your kAlakshEpam (discourse), I have instructed that all festivities of the temple be held in abeyance during this period. I will be present to partake of your glorious upanyasam(lecture), in tandem with my nAcchiyArs & all Srivaishnavas”. Thus ordered by the Lord Himself, Swami mAmunikaL,with implicit obedience, accepted this clarion call to perform service to the Lord.  On the concluding day of Swami mAmunikaL’s wonderful lectures onthiruvAimozhi and Eedu, the Lord appeared amidst the august assembly of mAmunikaL and sri vaishnavas, in the guise of an archakar’ son by the name Aranga Naayakam and brushing aside the opposition (after all, how is it possible for a little boy to cut through the large, gathered, assembly if He were not the Lord Himself?) preventing Him from getting proximate presence to Swami mAmunikaL’s seat, recited the following stanza in His inimitable, majestic voice resembling the thunder of a rumbling cloud,

“SriSailEsha dayA pAthram dheeibhakthyAdi guNarnavam

Yetheendra pravaNam vandE ramyajA mAtharam munim”

He kept a palm leaf containing the aforementioned sloka on a goldenplate full of flowers, fruits, coconuts and other sacred components of gurudakshiNa (token of appreciation) and after offering it at the holy feet of Swami mAmunikaL, ran towards the sanctum sanctorum & disappeared. To add to this magnificent miracle, Periya Perumal, the Lord Ranganatha Himself, immediately ordered through the archaka – ‘let this slOka be recited at the beginning of all divya prabhandarecitations; just as a Vedic recital begins and ends with the sacred ‘Om’,so also all recitals of the tamil veda, the divya prabhandam, shall commence and end with ‘srI SailESa dayA pAtram’


Tomorrow , Maasi Krishna paksha dwadasee  16th February 2015 – Swami disappeared from this material world and importantly the day on which Acharya leaves the samsara (sorrow filled material world) and reaches paramapadam (spiritual world of Sriman Narayana ) is celebrated as Thiruvadhyayanam or Theertham.

    Dear swamy
    nice write up.
    one small correction. srI rAmAnuja temple and chathurvEdhi mangalam around the temple was constructed by thiruvAimozhi piLLai (srI sailEsa) – AchArya of mAmunigaL. Under the orders of his AchArya, mAmunigaL performed thiruvArAdhanam in this temple and submitted yathirAja vimsathi to this emperumAnAr – bhavishyadhAchAryan. More details can be found at http://bhavishyadhacharyan.koyil.org.
