THE ALWAR SAINTS
Works on the Life History of Azhvars: There are many details professed orally and passed
on by hearsay, regarding the glories of Azhvars. Of these the
Guruparamparas (Hereditary details and line of succession of Gurus) are vital. They are
written in manipravala (mixure of Tamil and Sanscrit) style. Further a work in the form
of poems composed by ‘Vadivazhagiya Nambi dasar’ a very
devoted and scholarly author composed a work ‘Guruparamparaprabhavam’
. This is also highly enlightening and there are some more works throwing light on Azhvars.
