Welcome to this blog. This blog is dedicated to presenting the essence of the works of Pillai Lokacharya, theologian extrodinaire in the galaxy of preceptors belonging to the Srivaishnavite tradition.
I am proud and equally humbled to be associated with the Srivaishnava Villages of Karappankadu (Tanjore District) and Serankulam (Thiruvarur District) through my paternal affiliation and to the divya desam of Tiruvahindrapuram (Cuddalore District) through my maternal affiliation. The information that I share here have been learnt by me through emperuman’s grace, acharya anugraham and with the help of commentaries written by our purvacharyas.
About this Blog
This blog will feature notes of the ashtadasa rahasyas of Pillai Lokacharya. I request you to perodically check this link for updates to this blog. Adiyen’s humbly submits these writeups for the perusal of all Srivaishnavas by invoking the blessings of asmadacharyan Sri. U.Ve. TAS Ranganathan.
This blog assumes a certain foundational knowledge of Sanskrit & Tamil vocabulary. The intention of the blog is to introduce the uninitiated into Srivaishnava Sampradayam and create in them the interest to pursue a further formal-type education. None of what is written here is intended to replace the knowledge that one can gain from formal kalakshepam/discourse type learning. Hence, this blog is not meant to be a substitute to such learning.
The views/information presented herein have to be taken with a pinch of salt. If you could spot glaring factual/interpretation errors, kindly bring it to my notice and I will rectify it immediately. Hope you find this blog useful and enriching.
