— upadhESa raththina mAlai 55

viLAnchOlai piLLai

As maNavALa mAmunigaL explains in upadhEsa raththina mAlai, there are only a few who fully know and practice piLLai lOkAchAryar’s SrIvachana bhUshaNa dhivya SAsthram which is considered as the most important grantham in our SrIvaishNava sampradhAyam. viLAnjOlaip piLLai, who is piLLai lOkAchAryar’s true disciple and who has well grasped the essence of this SrIvachana bhUshaNa dhivya SAsthram, due to his great mercy, beautifully presented its meanings in just seven pAsurams which are easily understandable.

piLLai lOkAm jIyar has mercifully written a beautiful commentary for this saptha kAdhai. He has explained the meanings of the pAsurams citing many pramANams (authentic references).

We are setting out to translate this beautiful commentary into English for the benefit of those who would like to understand the same in an easy manner. We conclude this preface by praying to the elders/scholars to ignore the mistakes and accept the good intention.
