The river kAvEri was making the chOza kingdom prosper to
the extent of saying "chOza kingdom provides food for other kingdoms".
thiruvAkkUr was a town in that kingdom which is praised by the
prodigy thiru nyAna champan^dhar in his thEvAram as
" If anybody in the world out of poverty asks for something, without saying
no the generous people of thiruvAkkUr readily help them."
The roaring sound of the thunder will be less audible in the town,
because of the sound of reciting vEdhas . The melody of the singing
of the honey-bees will go to the background, as the rich tunes in which the
devotees are praising the Lord whose body can not be classified as male or
female or neuter come to the foreground. The scented smokes emerging out of
akil and similar substances that are used in the houses will
disappear in the smoke from the fire of rite performed for the peace of the
worlds. The clouds in the sky will appear to be formed out of the smoke of
benzoin used in the temples of the God.
In that beautiful and blessed thiruvAkkUr, chiRappuli n^AyanAr came
in the family that does the service of reciting the holy vEdhas as
the job of their life. He had the principle of giving things without
hesitation to the devotees of the immortal Lord who ate the poison and gave
the nector to the dhEvAs without hesitation. When the lovers of
the Lord arrive at his place, he will prostrate at their feet and welcome
them. With the face like a blossomed lotus, he will talk in the sweet voice
nice words. Then he will provide nice seat for them to sit and relax. They
will be given a nice feast in which the major item is love. He will give
them whatever they wish. In total he was like the rain that pours to all
without deception. The crops of his love flourished in the rain of his
Recites the holy five letters of the Lord always; Prays the Lord
through the fire of rite all the three times; Helps in making the temples of
the Transcedent Lord for timely prayers; Above all never forgets the
forgiving feet of the holy Father; He doesn't need to remember Lord shiva,
because only when you forget something you need to remember. He shows the
peaks of his love to the people who have love for the Lord who abide in the
peak of kailAsh . The bliss he enjoyed out of the service to the
Lord and His devotees continued forever as it bacame the bliss of abiding
under the holy feet of the Almighty That has the unperishable wealth. Let
the uninterruptable service of the chiRappuli n^AyanAr stay in the mind.
It is said that in the feeding service of aDiyAr he had as motto, God Himself came as the thousandth devotee to accept the offering and complete the thausand.
thiruvAkkUr temple has the abode of this form as Ayiraththil oruvar.
