Thirumangai Alvar

Thirumangai Alvar Mutharaiyar, also spelt as Tirumangai Alvar and Thirumangai Mannan (Tamil: திருமங்கை ஆழ்வார்) is the last of the 12 Alvar saints of south India, who are known for their affiliation to Vaishnava tradition of Hinduism. He is considered one of the most learned Alvar and the most superior Alvar in the context of composition of verses. He holds the title Narkavi Perumal, the mark of an excellent poet, and Parakala (Beyond Time). Though he is respected as a Vaishnava saint-poet, he, initially, worked as a military commander, a chieftain and then a robber. →Wikipedia
