Sekkizhar popularized the 63 Nayanmar saints by rendering their lives poetically in ‘Periya Puranam’.

This epic written in Tamil in poetic form is even now revered by the Shaivaites and is soaked in Bhakti. Not only this, it is a master piece in literature, history and music.
In order that every reader is benefited, Dr. N. Mahalingam, had published the prose rendering of this work written in Tamil (?Chittira Peria Puranam?) by Prof. A. Sa. Jnanasambanthan.
The art work, both drawing and painting, on the lives of the Saiva Saints in this book was done by S. Rajam, a leading artist and an expert musician.

The cast of this book may be indicated as follows in respect of each of the 63 Saints:
a) a coloured picture, usually projecting the central episode in the particular Saint’s life.
b) a series of line drawings broadly indicating other events in the Saint’s life.
c) a Tamil prose piece on the Saint’s life based on Sekkizhar but with some comment as well when needed, ? this being the work of Prof. A.S. Jnanasambandhan.
d) a set of verses selected from Sekkizhar, together recalling the particular Saint’s life.

    Excellent work and book. Love this book so much. Thank you for the efforts to bring this up. Still there are hundreds of pictures you can draw to depict various scenarios of the history and come up with more volumes of this series. Please do so. ஒவ்வொரு நாயன்மாருக்கும் இறுதியில் இறைவன் அருள் புரியும் காட்சியை அப்படியே தத்ரூபமாக வரைந்து அடுத்த பகுதியாக வெளியிடுங்கள். இன்னும் நிறைய படங்கள் வேண்டும்.
