Grace Texts given by the Nayanmars and Alvars in Tamil has given the unique status of the language of devotion. They are the biographical record of the people who have led the life of the Blessed Sacrament. In the line of witnesses who insisted on piety, Manikkavacakar and Thirumangai Alvar, renouncing their dynasties, were doing their best through piety. They rejoice in their ungodly prayer, based on the unadulterated love of music that the Sangam Literature points out. They used the instinctive love-events of the senses to convey a sense of bliss that is beyond the senses, to human knowledge. This article discusses the Grace Texts of Manikkavacakar and Thirumangai Alvar given in the field of Akatthurai.
