The Life of the Tamil poet-saint Manikkavacagar
The Tiruvilaiyadal Puranam by Paranjoti Munivar recounts the holy sports of Lord Siva in the city of Madurai. This book gives the Tamil text with English translation of chapters 58-61 of that work, consisting of a biography of the Tamil poet-saint Manikkavacakar, with particular emphasis on those events within it which transpired in Madurai itself. For a full account of the events which transpired in the saint's life after his departure from Madurai and information on the place and manner of the composition of the hymns of the Tiruvacakam, readers are directed to the Tiruvadavur Adigal Puranam by Kadavul Mamunivar, which, although based on the account given by Paranjoti Munivar, contains a fulller account of those later events. The Tiruvadavur Adigal Puranam can be purchased on this web page in both book and .pdf formats.
