Works of swAmi piLLai lOkAcharyar

In the vast ocean of Veda and vEdAntha, swAmi Pillai lOkAcharyar concentrated solely in documenting the rahasya related subjects. SwAmi PiLLai lOkAcharyar's life mission was to achieve a synthesis between the philosophic tone and methodology of the vedantha, and aruLicheyal's of azhwars.In the SrIvaishNava sampradAyam, two manthra's-Thirumanthram and Dwayam- and one sloka- charamaSlOkam- together are considered as rahasya thraya. They are referred to as rahasyas, because of the nature of the esoteric meanings contained in them. Their upadEsam as well as initiation were not done in public and were also not easily available from acharyas. In rahasya thraya, the entire meaning of the Vedas and vedantha are abstracted. The knowledge of rahasya thraya, invokes the dharma-bhUtha-jnAna (attributive conciousness) of the jivAthmA with an end result of moksham. This explains why their meanings, upadESam and kalakshEpam were kept secret. The rahasya thraya along with the knowledge of thathwathraya and artha panchakam constitute the fundamental doctrine of viSishTAdwaitha siddhAntham.
The voyage begins and the final days.
Years passed by swAmi azhagiyamaNavALaperumAL nAyanAr ascended to paramapadam, survived by swAmi piLLai lOkAcharyar. Soon the calm and golden days will be coming to an end. The period of nampiLLAi and periya-v-AcchAn piLLai were golden days, as the political atmosphere was calm, the kings favoring the temple administration, the day to day living was smoother. This gave our acharyas to concentrate more on writing down commentries of nalayira divyaprabandham, than looking for solving problems 22 around. Due to political discrepancies and a fight for throne in the pandyan dynasty there were external interferences in the kingdom which in turn affected SrIrangam as well. Allaudin Khilji was ruling Delhi at that time he sent his army with the leadership of Malik Kafur to sack pAndya kingdom. On CE 1311 Srirangam was sacked by the Muslim invaders, but the temple was left unharmed, in the second invasion in CE 1318 too there was not much problems.
Finally it was the year of CE 1323 a big army with the leadership of Uloob Khan (who later ruled Delhi sultanate with the name of Mohammad Bin Tuqlaq) camped near to Kannanur (the present day Samayapuram). The army had only one aim at this time, to destroy the beautiful periyaperumAL vigraham, and to loot the unaccountable wealth of SrIrangam. While perumAL thiruvArAdhanam and uthsavam was going on, in the pantriAzhwAn sannidhi news came that the army is going to sack Srirangam soon.
SwAmi piLLai lOkAcharyar, had to make decisions very quickly. He discussed the matters with swAmi vEdAntha dEsikan, and SudarSana bhaTTar. They started to act swiftly. They covered the entrance to the main altar of the Lord with bricks and cement, so that the enemy won't be able to identify the main Sanctum Santorum. In order to ensure that the enemy should not break through the bricks looking for the main deity, they placed one of the five processional deities in front of the brick-wall and lit a lamp so that the burglars cannot reach the main deity. Over night a small group of SrIvaishNavAs leaded by the ripe old swAmi piLLai lOkAcharyar, left Srirangam to thirumAlirumchOlai, carrying namperumAL in a small palanquin. swAmi vEdAntha dESikan, carried the olai chuvaTi (palm leaf manuscripts), containing, Srutha prakASika, the great commentary on SrIbhAshyam written by sudarSana bhaTTar, grand son of vEdavyAsa bhaTTar. He took the two kids of sudarSana bhaTTar also into his protection. A small group with piLLai lOkAcharyar and his disciples, managed to trek through the rough and tough terrains, forests and reached thirumAlirumchOlai.
