Andal, Rangamannar, Garudazhwar
In our Elayavilli Tirumaaligai at Alwar Thirunagari, Elayavilli Achan performed Tiruvaradhana to Lord Andal, Rangamannar and Garudazhwar which has been setup as similar to the Andal and Rangamannar in Srivilliputhur. The speciality about the Elayavilli Thirumaaligai Tiruvaradhana Perumal is that He is a thousand years old Perumal which was worshiped by the Elayavilli Aachaan. Currently Sri U. Ve. Elayavilli Sriram Swami, Acharya Purusha of Alwar Thirunagari Elayavilli Thirumaligai is performing the daily rituals for the Perumal.
Sri Komandur Elayavilli Aachan is one of the 74 Simhasanathipathigal established by Swami Ramanujar. Elayavilli Aachan, the cousin of Swami Ramanujar was his ardent disciple and dedicated his whole life performing kainkaryam to Swami Ramanujar. He was named Elayavilli after Lakshmana, like how Lakshmana dedicated his life to Sri Rama, so as Elayavilli Aachaan to Sri Ramanujar. Elayavilli Aachan is 1000 years as old as Sri Ramanujar and the vigraha is currently worshipped by Sri U. Ve. Elayavilli Sriram Swamy at Alwar Thirunagari Elayavilli Thirumaligai.

Sri U. Ve. Elayavilli Srinivasa
Sri. U. Ve. Elayavilli Srinivasa Bhuvarahachariar Swami made the passage for Tamil to make its presence felt in the Kannada land with regards to the spiritual realm.
Sri. U. Ve. Elayavilli Bhuvarahachariar Swami was the pioneer in making kalakshebam in Tamil at Bangalore. By this he had expanded the territory for Tamil discoursers of Sri Vaishnavism transcending Tamil Nadu.
He continued to contribute in such a way to the Ramanujacharya-cause for 5 decades.
Sri U. Ve. Elayavilli Sriram Swami
Returning to the roots isn’t something easy for someone who got used to the attractive vanities of urban life.
Sri. U. Ve. Elayavilli Sriram Swami really is an epitome of detachment and dispassion that the scriptures prescribe. He did thrive in the worldly aspects of life, such as modern education. He has completed his master’s in Graphics. He was able to make a bold choice.
He dared to choose to return to his village to preach Sri Vaishnavism leaving behind all the comforts the world could offer. For Elayavilli Sriram Swami what could be contributed to life to make it worthy mattered more than what could be derived from it?
Sriram Swami returned to his native Alwarthirunagari to serve his Acharya and to stay connected with the heritage.
Sriram Swami rendered many kalakshebams through online and now he is rendering “Tiruvaimozhi kalakshebam” through online.
Sri U.Ve.Elayavilli Satajit Swami
With due respect to Sri. U. Ve. Satakopachariar Swami, he did what he did when the world was in a feudal mode, with very less distractions and what more, he is directly connected to Udayavar Sri Ramanujacharya.
But the Elayavilli Scion Sri. U. Ve. Elayavilli Satajit Swami with everything around to make him disconnected with the Acharya parampara, still has managed to stay unfettered to the 21st century gizmos. On the flip side, he is making good use of all modern means to carry the fire tender of Sri Vaishnavism that was lit by the holy Azhwaars and Ramanujacharya, from a tender age of 4!
This prodigious child started delivering upanyasams at age 4. At the age an ordinary child is rid of childish lisps, Elayavilli Satajit Swami already started giving the message of Sriman Narayanan to the world.
Satajit Swami ably manages his worldly education and spiritual purpose. He has been giving Thirupaavai series lectures for 9 years from the age of 6, he is 15 now.
He has proven his mettle on all the platforms ranging from newspaper to television and has heaped a lot of laurels. Mudhaliyandaan Swami went on to crown him as “Yathiraja Padhuka Sevaka” .
This Elayavilli family through sources in history is known to have been the favourite of Sri Ramanujacharya, guess he was aware that this family would keep passing on this glorious tradition of Sri Vaishnavism affronting this dark age of Kali.
