Spiritual literature takes the foremost role in the history of literature. Spiritual literature has the tendency to impact our spirit and leads us afloat on the ocean of happiness. Every religion has been at certain points of time propounded by a teacher and later spread throughout the globe by their students. However some of the worship methods predate the era of literature. Islam is a religion that grew through the teachings of Nabi. Many saints have expressed the immense state of spiritual attainment by forsaking the material joys of the world through their songs. Many religions have used the Tamil language as a medium of expressing their ideology. All religions are unified by their emotive spirituality. Dhayumanavar and Gunangudiyar occupy a significant position in the history of literature. Eventhough their means to spirituality differs they express similar spiritual experiences. The purpose of this article is to research on the similarity observed in their mode of prayer and descriptions in each of their Paraparakkanni.
