For every mumukshu (one who is desiring mOksham), knowledge about chith (soul), achith (matter) and Ishwara (god) is of paramount importance. srI krishNa bhagavAn gave this knowledge to every one through his bhagavath gIthA. Our AzhwArs and AchAryas have explained this in great detail. But there is nothing like thathva thrayam where the three entities are explained in a crystal clear fashion by piLLai lOkAchAryar. With excellent vyAkyAnam of maNavALa mAmunigaL, this grantham brings out the most in-depth knowledge of our sanAthana dharmam. Through this new series of articles adiyen is attempting to present that knowledge in very simple terms. Today being thirumUlam (thirunakshathram of maNavALa mAmunigaL), its a good way to recollect one of his masterful commentaries.
