(Invocatory verse of glorification to an Acharya which is usually composed by a disciple)

avidhitha vishayAntharas chatArEr upanishadhAm upagAna mAthra bOga:
api cha guNa vachAth thadhEka sEshi madhurakavir hrudhayE mamAvirasthu

Let madhurakavi Azhwar be firmly established in my heart. He did not know any one other nammazhwar, considered singing nammazhwar’s pasurams as the only enjoyable activity and naturally considered nammazhwar as his only master.
