thirumangai AzhwAr with kumudhavalli nAchchiyAr
In upadhEsa raththina mAlai 9th pAsuram, maNavALa mAmunigaL highlights the purpose of the incarnation of thirumangai AzhwAr and his prabandhams.

ARangam kURa avadhariththa – vIRudaiya

Oh heart! nammAzhwAr mercifully composed four prabandhams which are equivalent to the four vEdhas. Just as there are six angams (ancillary parts) to those four vEdhas, thirumangai AzhwAr incarnated on this great day of kArththigai star in the month of kArththigai, only to compose six prabandhams which are like the six angams to nammAzhwAr’s prabandhams. Praise the divine lotus-like feet of those who like this day very much.
Among these six prabandhams, periya thirumozhi is the first one. In this beautiful prabandham, thirumangai AzhwAr fully enjoys the various dhivyadhESams where emperumAn is present. It is well known that AzhwAr physically travelled to every dhivyadhESam he highlighted in his pAsurams and performed mangaLASasanam to the dhivyadhESams and the emperumAns who are present there.
