The Hymns of Sundaramurthi Nayanar (Tamil)
Centre for Shaiva studies
24A, Aurobindo Street. 1st Floor. Heritage Town. Puducherry, 605001 India
The Tevaram is one of the ancient Tamil devotional poetic corpus of high prominence. Three of the greatest shivabhaktas—Tirujnanasambandhar, Tirunavukkaracar and Sundaramurti—known as the Nayanmars have sung these devotional songs at more than 250 Shaiva holy places situated in the region comprising the modern-day Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.
The Centre for Shaiva Studies has already held multiple lectures by prominent speakers focussing on the first six books of the Tevaram. In this lecture, the speaker will focus on the various Shaiva concepts and devotional themes expressed in the 7th book of the Tevaram, hymns sung by the great Shaiva saint Sundaramurthi Nayanar (c. 9th CE) also widely known as Sundarar.
