This thaniyan (a stand-alone hymn which provides an insight into the prabandham) has been mercifully composed by kOyil kandhAdai aNNan, one of the important disciples of mAmunigaL. mAmunigaL is one who learnt well the instructions of our preceptors from thiruvAimozhip piLLai and lived as per those instructions. Such mAmunigaL, with great affection, explained those instructions in a simple manner through this prabandham. The divine feet of the people who keep those instructions in their hearts well, are our refuge.
