Thanks for the reply. Since everybody says that "Thiruvasagathukku urugar oruvasagathukku urugar", I didn't want to miss out what people who had read it, enjoyed. I wanted understand the literary meaning of Thiruvasakam. I do understand it is very difficult to explain from the first line to the last. I was wondering if you can help me with explaing what certain words mean? I will go ahead and read up about it and make a list of words I don't understand and post it here, few words at a time. Thanks again and really appreciate your help.

Perhaps you should read the life story of Manickavasagar. YOu would then understand why he says 'certain' things in his songs!

Hi Idiappam,

I did read about his story from a web-site. It was just one page. Moreover, Manikavasagar talks lots of things other than his own story. I also was going through some of the nayanars' life story. Nirayasolirikirar, puriyathan mataen engirathu.

The hill is associated with mythological stories from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. It finds mention in the works of poets Kalidas and Radhanath Ray. The rivulet Mahendra Tanaya flows down the hill with her usual trickling note. Archaeological remains at Mahendragiri make an interesting study for the scholars. Sivaratri is the main festival here which draws a large crowd'.

Ilavenil, sivapuraanam motham 95 vari padal thane, first we will understand sivapuraanam thoroughly, i tell you why, Shiva peruman himself came here and asked maanika vasaga peruman to tell whatever he had sung sofar, then shiva peruman wrote everything and signatured as "Maanikkavasagan solla Azhagiya thiruchitrambalamudayan ezhudiyadhu - Thiruchitrambalamudyan". So we have to analyse and enjoy -get the reall meaning of it. Adhu tamil inbam. i want to tell you something

Yesterday i happened to read something about "Kamba ramayanam", in that Kaikeyi is telling Rama to go to forest. The same day morning Dasharatha told Rama is going to be the king, Rama is not very happy or sad about this, again kaikeyi is asking him to go to forest, now also he is not very happy or sad about this. He is calm, ramanudaya mugam "Chithiralarntha thamarai pola" irunthadam,
why kamba is saying chithiralarntha thamarnnu solararnnu parthal, thamarai azhaga irrukkum, anal vadi vedum. Chithirathil varintha thamari eppodhum malarnthu azhaga thondrum. Enna arumaiyana uvamai, why i am saying this is we have analyse sivapuraanam and feel the real joy, what do you people say Ilavenil and Madhu ?

If you take it in the right sense, i would like to tell you something,
First you started asking something in "Sivapuranam", then after that you asked in "Keerthi thiru agaval" after that you are asking in "Thiru anda paguthi".. All are in thiruvachagam only. But what i suggest you is, first we will discuss all 95 padal in "Siva puranam". Thiruvasagam has many "marai porul" - marai - vedam enavum eduthukkolalam, marai -marainthulla porul enavum eduthukkolalam.

So you want to learn this, i will also join in this learning. we all discuss and find out the reall meaning and share the pleasure of understanding.

Arjuna tree is the tree of "Marutha" and the place where Lord Shiva appears as a Linga under this "Martha" tree is called Arjuna Kshetra.

The Thiruvadaimaruthur in Thanjavur which Sri Adi Sankara visited is called Madhyaarjunam. Srisaila, in Andhra, is called Mallikarjunam as Lord Shiva resides under a Marutha Tree which has also got Jasmine creepers on this tree. Sri Adi Sankara visited this tree and became ecstastic on seeing the linga at the foot of this tree. His happiness flowed like the waves of a flood and became a sloka called Sivanandalahiri.

Nice with your explanation ilavenil and madhu.

" vanakkamudan arambikirar, sivaya vazhaga ena arrambikkavillai".
Just thought of imaipozhudhum neengamal irrupadhu, very tough but focusing all your thoughts on siva.

Absolutely no problem with first two lines. Here comes my doubt,

but, Kogazi aanda endru solvathu yen ???
Siva has no tense.. only we have, he is still ruling then why maanikkavasaga peruman, aanda endru solgirar ?

Aagam aginindru endru than solgirar, nindra endru sollavillai.

I am a new member. I read through the whole thread of this conversation.

I have read a slightly different interpretation for the phrase 'kokazhi Anda...' in some book.

The interpretation goes like this:

"Kokazhiyil yezundaruli yennai (author) Aandu konda".

DukR^iJN karaNe - i guess it doesn't mean aagamam, madhu could you please explain in detail so that we could understand better.

What is aagamam - i have explored some explanation we will find in detail

. 'Aagamam' is a Sanskrit word for which the corresponding word in literary Tamil, is tonRiyatu meaning: 'was revealed' to the ancient Seers when they were in deep meditation/communion with God. The Aagamas prescribe in detail the selection of places and sites for locating a temple, the measurements such as length, width, height etc., for the construction of the temple and the kriyas or the rituals of worship to be performed for each deity.

From Saint Tirumoolar's Tirumantiram we have the following nine basic Siva-Aagamas: KaaraNam, Kaamikam, Veeram, Vuyar-chintam, VaatuLam, viyAmaLam, Kaaloththaram, suppiram, Makutam. In the same manner, there are Aagamas for the worship of Tirumaal (Vishnu) and Shakti (Sri or Lakshmi). Aagamas have four broad subject-headings: Kriyai, Sariyai, Jnaanam and Yoga. Generally, however, Aagamas give instructions mainly on the construction of temples and the rituals to be followed in the worship of the deity. The Aagamas stress on the Bhakti-marga - or the love for a personal God through devotion and total surrender. The Shaivite method of worship follows the instructions laid down in the Aagamas; the worshipers commonly known as Hindu follows the instructions of the Vedas.

DukR^iJN karaNe means grammar

The story goes like this :-
Adi Sankara was travelling somewhere when he saw a old man involving himself in studying Sankrit Grammar.Adi Sankara sang this song immediately.
What it means is that, when you are about to die,knowledge of Sanskrit grammar is not going to help you.
You will be born into this world again and again according to your karmas.The only knowledge which will help you avoid this karmic cycle is the knowledge of God.You have to realize "Shivam" or "Brahmam" and once you realize it, you will escape the cycle of birth and death.

Yesterday i had a discussion with one tamil pandit, i asked the meaning of "Kogazhi", he told its one of the name of thiruvavadudurai, but also it means Ko - means king/God here kogazhi means kings's sengol.

So can we interpret this way, while Maanikavasaga's period, the rule of king might not be good, that's why he is saying "Kogazhi aanda" in past tense. what do you say ??

Dear Ilavenil
"Mayap pirappuarukkum Mannan".
What I think is that in Hindu philosophy,this world is Maya(unreal)
People will have the cycle of birth and death due to their karma.When you are born in Human form,you are expected to strive to attain mukthi.If you attain mukti,you are out of this cycle of birth and death.All the suffering comes because of this birth in this unreal world.Lord Shiva has the power to guide us to mukti.We merge with the Lord and hence we are out of this cycle of "samsara"(repeated birth and death and the troubles associated with it).No more pirappu and irappu for us in this unreal world.

viggop
9th April 2005, 04:30 PM
So,I think anyone born in this world should strive continuously to reach Lord Shiva.But since we are born because of our past karmic actions,we have to about doing our duty in this world without any attachment to the result of it.
For e.g.

If atma takes the body of a man,you have to do the duty of taking care of your parents(as a son),your wife(as a husband), children(as their father).
If atma takes body of the woman,then we have to do duty of daughter,wife,mother and daughter in law(extra!)

This duty is to be done dispassionately,meaning that we are not expected to do it for getting praise.A man should try to earn for supporting wife and children through honest means.If his wife and children dont praise him for that,he should not get disillusioned because that is his duty(karma).A wife should cook for her husband with devotion.If the husband does not praise for her cooking,she should not get disillusioned because she has to do duty without expecting the result(praise or abuse).

What you have told is 100% true. But, since it is not that easy, since we expect appreciation in every single step in our life, I just laughed.

Use the Top part of that tool for typing in english - and once you have typed - just press the radio button called "Romanised" - which is in the middle region of the two parts, and lO! you wud have the properly converted "thamizh" equivalent of what you typed in the upper part of that box!

If there are any changes to be made regarding spelling or santhip pizhai - u can make them and then post the thamizh script here.

This way you can type in english and covert it to thamizh script.

Sont worry about santhip pizhai, oRRup pizhai et al! :D

We would rather have an (unintended) defective thamizh script post - rather than trying to read thamizh in english!

This is just my humble suggestion, and if u have any more queries please do ask me and id be glad to help :)[/tscii:e1592ea5e4]

Or Manikavasagar/Gnanasampandhar/sundarar and appar meant some other Tamil works when they used the word "marai".

Here, in context it means that the lord is hidden!

Vedic influence was there in Tamil country long before the 'Manikavasagar/Gnanasampandhar/sundarar and appar ' period.

Ilango Adigal (2nd century AD) mentions some vedic gods too - see manaiaRappadutha kaathai of his Silapathigaram.

Nayanmars did understand the vedas, I guess. But, it seems that only Appar opposed the Vedics in a few of this songs!

The rest later!

Thanks Idiappam Sir
If vedas were there even during the Silapadhikaram period,that means Tamils must definitely have mastered Sanskrit and vedas during 2nd century AD.Otherwise, there is no way they could have understood vedas.It also means that there was a rich cultural exchange between South and North India even during those times when there was no easy communication.

Nayanmars and alwars were very wise and well read people.Atleast the big 4 of the nayanmars were very erudite.Since, they praised Vedas, does that mean the philosophy in Vedas was in agreement with Tamil Saivite philosophy spread by the Nayanmars? Because ,other philosophies like Advaita,Dvaita and VishishtaDvaita also base themselves on Vedas.

With much respect and deference to all these great philosophers who were blessed by God Himself,i want to know whether Vedas could be interpreted by anyone in anyway to suit their philosophy? Some english translations of Vedas which I read did not contain much philosophical meaning.Maybe,the Vedas as available to these Nayanmars were different and are lost now?Because people of the calibre of GnanaSampandhar,manikavasagar,sundarar and appar were blessed and cannot go wrong.THere must be something very good in Vedas that all the philosophers in North and South cherish them.

Where??? The praising of any form of worship is THE phliosophy of the Tamils - The Siddhantic tought! That's the reason they appreacited vedic worship! Remember the Vedas are polytheistic, unlike the Tamil Saivism!


Because ,other philosophies like Advaita,Dvaita and VishishtaDvaita also base themselves on Vedas.

You are wrong there!

There is no philosophy in the Vedas, so stop looking for that there! There Rig and Sama vedas are just 'devotional' songs that is sung during the various barbaric rituals of the Arayans. Yajur Vedas is about conducting sacrifices - animal included. The Atharvan is a book of charms that you can use if you belive in black magic.


Maybe,the Vedas as available to these Nayanmars were different and are lost now?Because people of the calibre of GnanaSampandhar,manikavasagar,sundarar and appar were blessed and cannot go wrong.

Yes they may not be talking about the 4 Aryan Vedas.


THere must be something very good in Vedas that all the philosophers in North and South cherish them.

That 'all forms of worship goes to the Lord' is a basic thought of the Tamils - weather or not the 'vedas contain good or bad'.

Idiappam Sir
Thanks for your clarification.

Even Tamils were polytheistic,I thought.Because Mal/Vishnu ,Murugan(Tamil Kadavul) was also worshipped by the Allwars plus lot of village deities like Madurai Veeran etc. with lot of animal sacrifices too

I'm surprised that you are saying that Advaita,Dvaita and VishishtaDvaita are not based on Vedas.If so, i was grossly misinformed.What are these philosophies based upon?

I thought that Advaita emphasised Gnana marga form of worship(than ritualistic karma marga)while VishishtaDvaita and Dvaita emphsised Bhakthi marga of Vedas(than gnana marga).Adi Sankara,Ramanujacharya and Madhwacharya have written bhashyas on upanishads,brahmasutras etc and I thought these works were based on Vedas and they praised the vedas too in their slokams.The followers of these philosophies like Sankaracharyas and Jeeyars praise the Vedas a lot and conduct schools all over India for Vedic training.SO, i assumed that those philosophies must have been based on Vedas.what will they be teaching in these Vedic schools? My guess is that they might have some other way of interpretation other than the english interpretations I read as otherwise this cannot be sustained on false things.

Also, I read somewhere that only 6% of vedas are remaining now and 94% are lost.Surely, philosophers like Adi Sankara,ramanujacharya and madhwacharya were equal in calibre and brilliance to Tamil Nayanmars and they too wont be fooled to believe in Vedas if it really did not have anything useful.

There is some missing link between the Vedas praised by all these philosophers and perhaps the Vedas we have now which were translated to English.

Akkam should be interpreted as birth or beginning- aadhi.
aadhiyum anthamum illaadhavan. aLavyu illaai = aLappadharkariyavan. He uses these in some other verses.
pokkuvaai means guide or show the path.
puguvippai should be interpreted as 'one who gives salvation'
One who shows the path to salvation (mukthi).
I think nARRam means something else. I have to think.

There are temple for Shiva for each of his panchbootham manifestations. 4 are in TN and Kalahasthi is in Andhra.

ThiruvAnaikA - appu - water
ThiruvaNNAmalai - thEyu - fire
ThirukkALahasthi - vAyu - air
KAnychIpuram(Ekampam) - pruthvi - land
Chithamparam - AkAsam - sky

Muthuswamy Dikshitar has composed beautiful Krithis for each of these temples when he visited them.Famously known as panchalinga/panchabhutam kritis.

Listen to Bombay Jayashree's rendition of them
http://www.musicindiaonline.com/l/1/s/album.2308/artist.103/
The 5 kritis are
(1)Ananda Natanaprakasham(Kedaram)
(2)Sri Kalahastheena(Husseni)
(3)Arunachalanadham(saranga)
(4)Jambuphate(Yamuna Kalyani)
(5)Chintayamam(Bhairavi)

DK jayaraman also included Parvathi Pathima and Sri Parvathi Parameshvarow in the Kritis list.

Thiruvannamalai:
Bhrama introduced himself to Vishnu as the Creator of the Universe, to which Vishnu replied that he was the architect of the Universe. An argument ensued between both as to their superiority over one another, when there appeared before them - a huge lingam of fire - with tongues of flames blazing out of it.

Curious to trace the origins of this column of fire, Bhrama assumed the form of a swan and flew upwards, while Vishnu assumed the form of a boar, and burrowed down into the earth.

While Bhrama was flying upwards in the guise of a swan, he saw the petals of a thaalambu flower drifting down. Tired by the futility of his efforts to reach the top of the mysterious column of fire, Bhrama requested the flower to acquiese to his lie that he had seen the top of the column where the flower had previously resided. Accompanied by his accomplice, Bhrama confronted Vishnu and asserted that he had indeed discovered the origin of the cosmic column. An enraged Shiva appeared out of the fiery column and cursed Bhrama so that he would not be worshipped in temples on earth. Then both surrendered to this column of fire with prayers.

The manifestation of Shiva in this column of fire in front of Bhrama and Vishnu, is carved in stone, as the Lingodbhavamurthy manifestation of Shiva, and is always enshrined in the rear niche of the sanctum enshring a Shivalingam. Since most temples face east, Lingodbhavar faces West.

Is it? I did not know this difference.In Siddhanta,the atma/soul reaches the feet of the Lord but it is different from the Lord? It enjoys permanent bliss at the Lord's feet?

I'm just trying to learn more about our religion Hinduism.Do not have knowledge to distinguish between Vedanta/Siddhanta etc.I'm just clubbing them under "Hindu philosophy" and trying to learn more. :D

It would be great if moderators allow us to create religion based threads on topics like Siddhantam if we can assure them abuse of other religions will not take place in the threads. Unfortunately,such threads are hijacked by people having lot of anger and hate in them and end up abusing other philosophies and religions :(

I think Manicavasagar wants to get rid of this human body(which is acquired because of previous karmas and which will undergo decay and death) by attaining moksha and merging with the lord.

The 'merging with the lord' is a Vedantic concept, not Siddhantam! In Siddhantam you just 'reach the feet of the Lord'!

Idiappam Sir,

I know nothing about vedantha and siddhantha. All I knew as a child was, I am a hindu, we go to temple and pray. I have just started to learn that hinduism is not what I really thought it was. Can you please explain the origin of Siddhantham and how it is different from vedantham and its concepts, please? I am trying to see where my belives really fit in.

Thanks.

Sidhdaantham... and Vedhaantham are different words whose meanings also are different.

SIDHDHANTHAM = Theory / Principle / Doctrine...

... such as Saiva-Sidhadhantham = Saiva principles or as above.

Vedhaantham = Philosophy, ( Detailing the Spiritualism more than the Religious aspects...Inter-relations between various Life-objects, Created Souls, Abstract-powers and God's Divinity.. Cosmic / Super-soul)

Veda + Antham = Extremity of Vedic sense (Philosophy beyond Religion)

The article then says ,probably manicavasagar lived suring some other later time than 3rd-8th century AD.But analysing the Tamil works for manikavasagar,scholars are of the view that he could not be placed later than 8th century AD. then,how come he is not counted as one of the nayanmars?

also, the article says that the oldest nayanmar was Karaikal Ammayar?

Yes, that is true. But why do you mention appar here? It was Sundarar of the 9th Century who listed the 62 nayanmars (63 including himself) in his Thiruthondar Thogai - Manickavasagar is not on that list.

Samayak kuravar Naalvar - Sambandar, Appar, Sundarar and Manickavasagar. Authors of Thirumurais 1 - 8.


The article then says ,probably manicavasagar lived suring some other later time than 3rd-8th century AD.But analysing the Tamil works for manikavasagar,scholars are of the view that he could not be placed later than 8th century AD. then,how come he is not counted as one of the nayanmars?

Manickavasagar's Tamil is simple. Simpler than Appar's. He speaks pluralistic Saivism. Therefore scholars think he is born after Sankara (the advaitin) - 5th Century, putting him closer to Ramanuja and Madhava - of the Dualistic School.

Appar and Sambandar are dated 6th - 7th Century - the Pallava period. Appar talks a lot about Kanchi. Some scholars put Manickavagar before Appar - between 3rd - 5th Century, because Appar mentions the 'Wolf into Horses' episode that is said to have happened during Manickavasagar's life. Appar's lines goes:

Yes, she is the most Senior of all the Nayanmars! Her writings are found in Thirumurai 11.

Thanks Idiappam.I'm sorry.It is "Thiruthondar Thogai" by Sundarar which has been mentioned in the article.

Coming to the main question.Why is not manickavasagar not named as one of the 63 nayanmars.
People must have known his works(Thiruvasagam).He is fit to be one of the Nayanmars as Shiva appeared to him twice.Once for the "nari turning into Pari" and the other in Chidambaram during his last days.

Adi Sankarar's date is 788AD-820AD.That is the official date of Sankara.Since Adi Sankara praises Sampandar in his Soundarya lahari as Dravida sishu,does that mean he accepts the philosophy of shaiva siddhantam?Like sampandhar defeated Jains in debates,Shankara defeated buddhists in N.India.

Idiappam
16th June 2005, 03:30 PM
We have 63 Nayanmars. Plus 1 individual saint - Manikavasagar

As I said, the 63 Nayanmars is based on Sundarar's Thiruthondar thogai list. The later Namiyandar Nambi and Sekkizhar continued the 63 Nayanmar canon - Manikavasagar was ommited by all three. That being the main reason for the controversy of his date.

Maraimalai Adigal has written 2 volumes on this controversy running to more than 600 pages, in his 'Manikavasagar varalarum kalamum' - I have not seen that work.

Sambandar and Appar mentioned a number of Nayanmars in their works - but failed to mention Manikavasagar - by name.

Nayanmars who lived before Sambandar and Appar:
Kotchengat Cholar , Chandesar, Kannapar, Sakkiyar, Kanampullar, Amarneethi, Arivaldayar, Naminanthi, Thandi, Pugalthunai, Pugalcholar, Eripathar, Kurruvar, Murthi, Aiyadigal Kadavar Kon, Thirumoolar and Karaikaal Ammai.

Contemporary Nayanmars of Sambandar and Appar:
Kulachirai, Siruthondar, Nilakanda Yazhpanar, Nilakandar, Nindraseer Nedumaram, Mangayarkarasi, Murugar and Appoothi Adigal.

Sankara's 'dravida sisu' is again a controversy - who did he talk of - Sambandar?? Why? Probably he admired the Tamils Saints and their way of religion. In his Sivananda Lahari (verse 63), Sankara praises Kannappa Nayanaar, "marvellous, simply wonderful'.

But the anti-Jain-Buddhist campaign is another story. I am not really happy with Sambandars words on that issue. Very cruel!

viggop
16th June 2005, 09:35 PM
Idiappam Sir
I read the translation of Sankara's Sivananda Lahari.It is supposed to have been composed in Sri Kalhasthi.There too ,Sankara mentions kanappa nayanar as hunter..In another work called "Subrahmanya bhujangam" ,he mentions Valli as the hunters daughter.he definitely knew the local legends in TN.This is composed in Tiruchendur when he was supposed to be very sick and Murugan cured him. Most likely he was a Tamilian too since malayalam was probably not there in 8th century AD as a separate language? but strange things is that there is no reference to Adi Sankara in any of the Tamil works.The only reference of Adi Sankara is in some temple in Cambodia. So, this lead to another controversy.Some people claim that there was no Adi Shankara at all but he just a myth.Some people claim that there are multiple people with name shankara and later all got attributed to one Adi shankara( like avvaiyar/nakeerar story).i read one claim that Adi Sankara and Sampandhar were the same person!!!

There is a lot of controversy about some of sampandhar's words.I read a Tamil Christian scholar argue that sampandhar had used the word "karpazhipu" etc. and that has to be done on jains.she argued that sampandhar was advocating genocide and rape on Jain followers.
also, it seems that some king butchered 8000 Jain monks after sampandhar defeated them in debates.She attributed this behaviour of Sampandhar to him being a Vedic brahmin who was out to kill followers of non Vedic religions.Other scholars were saying that karpazhipu probably meant some other thing in those days.

Onnume puruyalai!!! instead of going into all controversies,we can try to follow the good teaching of sampandhar,manicavasagar,adi sankarar and leave out their controversial teachings if any. :D

viggop: If you can, get a copy of Thevaram-muthaal thirumurai by Sambandhar. There are verses castigating Jainism. There was also a practice to execute Jains using 'kazhuvetral'. If I am not mistaken there was/is a festival in Madurai for that.
Some say that Thevaram verses were composed to arrest the onslaught of Jainism in ancient Tamilnadu. It was also set to music so that the common man could sing.
Those who interpreted Thevaram might have gone overboard in accusing Sambandhar of promoting genocide.
There was violence to protect the religions- saivism, jainism(samaNam) and budhdhism (boudhdham).
You are right! We should take the positive aspects of Thevaram.
I am sure Idiappam has more to say.

Yes rajraj. we have to take only the positive things from all these great philosophers to reach God.
rape and genocide is still going on in India and the world in name of religion.For e.g. Kashmir(attack on Hindus),Gujarat(attack on muslims),Bosnia(attack on muslims,Afghanistan(attacks on non muslims) etc.

I think gnanasampandhar and appar were in the forefront against Jainism.Appar was sometime a Jain before he reconverted back to Hinduism.Due to this,till his end,he had a feeling that he was impure because he abandoned Lord Shiva for sometime(when he was a Jain).By Manickavasagar's time,probably Jainism was already waning and it was no longer a threat to Hinduism.Once the Cholas became powerful,they defeated the kalabrar kings(Jain kings of Karnataka) and hinduism became powerful again in TN.

As I said earlier, we should only follow teachings of these philosophers which are good.We can ignore saying which do not suit our times.

India is now a secular country where people of all religions like hindus,jains,buddhists,christians,muslims,sikhs,pa rsis,jews can follow their religion.No one has any right to make fun of other people's religions or their beliefs.

Dear Vigipop,

"I refer to your asking about Thendir Karpazhikka-" as per A.S.Gnanasampandthan, highly regarded scholar, here it is "Thendir " and the reference is to their Educatiion Kalvinilai and raping. This has been explained many a times, Devakala and Deivanayagam, both anit Tamils, see my posting ibn Kural or I sugest a separate forum for that .

And killing of 8000- is another myth, we see names like Sahasranamam, Kodiarchanai, Latcharchanai etc., ; if in a village a big Prayer Yagna held and the places were called "ChathurVethi Mangalam" in same way Ennayiram gramam- and few Samana Scholars whom Sambandaar defeated from a village named that actally killed themselves, but the things are wrongly interpreted.

If you can invite Devakala or Alexander Harris we can discuss on Christianity also.

Dear Solomon
Can you explain the "karpazhipu" in simpler english.I really want to know the true meaning.I'm finding it difficult to understand your english.

If the meaning is different,then we can be proud that great philosophers like gnanasampandhar are really Godly and it is we ordinary folks who misinterpret things.Is A.S.Gnanasampandthan, the person who comes in pattimanram's in Jaya TV?I heard he is a respected professor.

I do not agree with Alexander Harris/Deivanayagam etc when they say that all hindu religious works like devaram,divya prabandam was about Christ.I expect them to be secular and not cause hard feeling among people of my religion.I'll also respect their decision to follow their religion and will not condone anything which hurts their religios beliefs.simply put,i'll respect their religion and i expect them to respect mine.

I know gnanasampandhar did use the word "karpazhipu".I want to know in what sense he used the word? was that to spread hate on other religious people? or that word has some other meaning? Gnanasampandhar is someone on whom there are lot of stories that Lord Shiva/Goddess Parvathi helped him etc.Will such a person use words which ask for genocide on people who just have a different point of view? if the answer is yes,then as a Hindu,i'll feel bad about it.I do not like people getting angry because someone has a different point of view.

Also,
(1)Why is gnanasampandhar known as "aludaipillai"?
(2)What about allwars?did they participate in debates against Jains/Shaivites?Does Nalayira Divya prabandham consist of any such information on debates?

The context in which The word used by Gnanasampanthanar was to cutoff the wrong education of Samanar.
Thendir Karpazhikka- Thendir Kalvinilai.
If a man has a name Sahasranamam- it means AyiramPeyar.

When Yagnas were conducted with lot of Devots and Kodiarchanai or Laksha or Kodi Vedic chanting done, the name of the area was called like ChathurVedimangalam etc., Again Ennaiyiram might be a name of Gramam, where a Prayer with 8000 Vedic Scholars did Chanting.

Revealed in beauty of innumerous, varied qualities;
In earth, in sky, and in celestial worlds.
All ordered lore hath He revealed, and He made void. (5)
My darkness hath He driven for aye far off.
Within His servants' inmost soul that love o'erflows
He dwells, - His glory and His choice.
On great MahEndra's biding hill
In grace He caused the uttered Agamas appear. (10)
He came with the good goddess,
Pleasant and gracious, mingling with men at KallAdam.
With her whose words are milk in the 'fivefold couch,'
He caused sweet grace, that unfailing accumulates, to grow.
In guise of a woodman, of her whose lips are crimson, (15)
He sank in the lovely expanse of the swelling breast.
Becoming a fisherman He caught the shark.
And he received the Agamas, a rich spoil.
Moreover, on MahEndra seated, the self-same Agamas
From His five mouths He graciously spake forth. (20)
In our abode a BrAhman He became,
And as a deathless Guru dwelt in grace.
Assuming diverse forms, and diverse habitudes,
As hundreds of hundreds of thousands of natures,
I Can, Lord of the bull, that the world might be saved, - (25)

kal ->kaR as in
kalvi -> kaRRal -> kaRkai -> kaRpu.
