Vanamamalai Perumal Temple, Nanguneri – Literary Mention

Vanamamalai Perumal Temple, Nanguneri – Literary Mention
Describing the glory of the Lord, Saint Nammazhwar begs him to appear before him to worship him with full satisfaction.
Azhvaar on the Shataari:
Nam Azhvaar is seen on the Lord’s Shataari, a gesture that is said to be equivalent to the Azhvaar himself blessing the devotees. 
Azhvaar pleads for liberation:
புள்ளின் வாய் பிளந்தாய்
மருது இடை போயினாய்
எருது ஏழ் அடர்த்த என் கள்ள மாயவனே
கருமாணிக்கச் சுடரே
தெள்ளியார் திரு நான்மறைகள் வல்லார்
மலி தண்  சிரீவர மங்கை
உள் இருந்த எந்தாய், அருளாய்  உய்யுமாறு எனக்கே - Thiruvaimozhi (5-7)
Nam Azhvaar in his praise of the Lord here refers to him as the one who ripped the bird's beak, the one who entered the Marudu trees and killed the seven bulls. Nam Azhvaar says that many great seers, who were all well versed in all the Vedas, resided here at Vanamamalai. Referring to the Lord who lives in Sri Varamangai Nagar amidst these great seers, Nam Azhvaar pleads with the Lord to show him and the devotees the path to Liberation.
