Kulasekara Alwar Thirunakshatram

Today is the Thirunakshatram of Kulasekara Alwar. Alwar’s vaibhavam can be read in this blog post & also from our own blog post last year.

Kulasekara Alwar is famous for his Mukundamala, the only Sanskrit composition by any Alwar. All the lines show Alwar’s immense devotion to the Lord. There’s an interesting commentry / translation of Alwar’s Mukundamala by Srila Prabhupada. You can find it at the end of the post. The translation is very simple and makes an engaging read.

Today is also the Thirunakshatram of Kandhadai Aandaan, son of Swami Mudhali Aandaan {an important sishya of Swamy Ramanujar}. Kandhadai Aandaan has said that a Sri Vaishnava should live without any fear and have faith in Sriman Narayana. A person who has fear cannot be a Sri Vaishnava.
