thanian is an invocatory verse of glorification to an AchArya which is usually composed/submitted by a sishya. Please take a look at this page ( to get the list of thanians (in English and thamizh) for the AchAryas along with their thirunakshathram details in our guru paramaparai. We usually recite the OrAN vazhi AchAryans thanians after applying Urdhva puNdram. Other AchAryas thanians are also recited when applicable (during their monthly/annual thirunakshathram days atleast).

Now, adiyen have added simple english translations for all the thanians that are available in this page. puthUr srI U. vE. Krishnaswamy iyengar has done many great favours for our sath sampradhAyam. As part of his tremendous literary contribution, he has explained the pUrvAchArya thanians in simple thamizh language in various granthams. adiyen have collected all those and translated the same in to English and placed them under the respective thanian in the thanians page.

The ebooks - srIvaishNava guru paramparai and srIvaishNava guru paramparai - thanians have been re-uploaded with the new version and can be downloaded from
