ALWAR TIRUNAGARI

He put him the question:

Settatin Vayitril Siriyatu Pirantal,

Ettai Tinnu Enke Kidakkum?

I.e., "If in the womb of what is dead, a subtle thing be born what will it eat and where will it abide? Hearing this riddle our Saint instantly opened his mouth and answered

Attai tinnu, anke kidakkum.

I.e., "It eateth that and abideth there". The food of the soul is God Himself and again its place of abode is God Himself. It requires the neither material food nor place. This answer gave Madurakavi so much of spiritual joy that he threw himself on the ground and worshipped the Saint with his heart over-flowing with ineffable love and veneration. This love poured in speech shaped into hymns. He became Nammalwar’s disciple. After the exaltation of our Saint to Heaven, Madurakavi, his first disciple, lived for several years, perpetuating the memory of his Master by the construction of a temple and installation of his holy image therein. He
proclaimed also, far and wide, the eternal truth embodied in the four Dravidian Vedas.
