URM – 4th Pasuram

Explanation:
In this pasuram, Manavala Mamunigal explains the order of incarnation of the Azhwars on this earth. The first three azhwars to incarnate in this world were poigai AzhwAr, bhoodhathAzhwAr and pEyAzhwar. Then came the reputed Thirumazhisai AzhwAr, the illustrious grace of NammAzhwAr, Kulasekara AzhwAr, the spotless periyAzhwAr, thondaradippodi AzhwAr, the epitome of naichchyam – thiruppAn AzhwAr and Thirumangai Azhwar.

Note: Mamunigal has deliberately left out AndAL and Madhurakavigal in this list, whom, he would separately deal with in another pAsuram.
