Ramanuja Vaibhavam Chapter - 021

Chapter 21. Sri Aalavandarin Mundru Kuraigal (Three unfulfilled wishes of Sri Aalavandar)

ElaiAzhwar cried a lot on seeing the mortal body of Sri Aalavandar. He was also unable to judge why Sri AalavandAr wished to see him. He felt upset and was unable to co-relate the intentions behind Sri Aalavandar’s wish. Then Periya Nambi consoled him. When ElaiAzhwar saw the body of Sri Aalavandar, he noticed that the three fingers in the right hand were folded. When he enquired whether it was the same when he was alive too, people nodded that it was only then they saw it folded. Then ElaiAzhwar asked, “Did Acharya had any unfulfilled wishes?” Periya Nambi and other recollected and told, “Yes, there were three unfulfilled wishes of our Acharya.1. Based on the reference of “Bodayana Virthuti’, he was intended to write ‘Bashyam’ for the Veda Vyas, “Brahma Sutra” on the ground of Vishistadvaitha principles told by Azhwars. 2. He had immense faith and bakthi towards ‘Sadagopan’ – NamAzhwar. He was intended to write an explanatory notes for ‘ThiruVaimozhi’ and name some suitable Vaishnavite accordingly to make the name ‘Sadagopan’ known to the world. 3. He was intended to name the names of ‘Parasara Battar’ author of Vishnu Puranam and ‘Veda Vysa Battar’ author of MahaBharatha to some suitable persons for making the world know them.But before he could make these wishes come true, he attained the eternal bliss” ElaiAzhwar immediately took oath on each of these wishes and proclaimed to fulfill the same as Acharaya’s order. To everybody’s surprise, the folded fingers were set right automatically. The crowd rejoiced and chorused “ElaiAzhwar is our next guru as wished by Sri Aalavandar”.Then, Sri Aalavandar was made to rest on the banks of north Cauvery. Even today the place where he was made to rest is called as ‘Sri Aalavandar’s Padithurai’. (Sri Aalavandar’s Ghat)Since ElaiAzhwar was not able to see Sri AalavandAr in life and flesh, he got dejected on Namperumal and returned to Kancheepuram without even visiting the temple. It is also said by many scholars as an explanation that if both of them had met in their life time, they could have laid the steps to Sri Vaikuntam. Then there won’t be any existence of this world as anybody could have claimed the same easily. Hence Namperumal purposefully decided not to make them meet in their lifetiChapter 21.
