ALTRUISM AT ITS GLORY

Seeing this, the second rushed out to offer his to the fourth 
While the third by then had stood behind the first to help the fourth 
There's keen contest to forgo what little each had for the fourth 
None lagged behind in displaying altruism in favour of the fourth.

Wonder of wonders!, all stood in the lain, the whole night, sans sleep 
And emptied souls in unison, or solo, through songs of devotion deep 
The environs were reverberated with the melody of rare devotion 
Seeing the spectacle, Time lost to itself forgot its own motion.

On lifting the black veil by the yawning sun with His puff sweet
Each looked at the other and was aghast at their unexpected mee
For, they were the celebrated minstrels in quest of one another
Now that 3Pudathal,4Poigai, &5Peey, 6Alwars met, they hugged one another

Delighted at the unusual meet, the fourth 7Tirumalisai Alwar said 
"Aren't you Vishnu's 8Kaumodaki 9Panchyajanya & 10 Nandaka in succession "Yes, thou art then 11Sudarsna Chakra' with one voice the three said. Overjoyed Alwars lulled the Nature to sleep by singing in succession.

The place sanctified thus by their meeting now lies in 12Tamil Nadu 
And is called Tirukoilur, throwing a halo to that great 13Kovil Naidu.


3 4 5 6 & 7.  the divine Vaishnava minstrels who spread the cult of devotion in the there is another version, according which the fourth man was Sri Maha Vishnu Himself when and the three sang and a hundred each and that formed the first 300 of the 4000 prabandams.

8. the divine club adorning the hat d of Vishnu... 
9. divine conch of Vishnu ...
10. the divines word of Vishnu. 
11. the divine disc of Vishnu. 
12. one of the southern states of the Indian Union .. 
13. a state for pilgrimage centres.
