Can someone tell me how I can obtain the following poetic/philosophical
works, all composed by monks within the Sri Vaishnava tradition of
"NakShatra-mAlikA", by Jiyar Naayanaar, grandson of ManavaaLa Maamuni.
This is a Sanskrit poetic work in praise of Nammalvar, the
Tamil saint whose works form a primary basis for
"Jnaana-saaram" and "Prameya-saaram", by AruLaala PerumaaL Emberumaanar,
direct disciple of Ramanuja.
These are two short works in Tamil, usually published with a
commentary by ManavaaLa Maamuni, the primary teacher of the
Tengalai subschool of Sri Vaishnavas.
Both of these are cited by Friedhelm Hardy (author of "Viraha Bhakti",
among other publications), but I have not been able to find them in
any library. I would be willing to pay the cost of having someone
photocopy them and mail them to me.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
