Untitled[edit]

The Article doesn't sound encyclopedic currently The article on the Divya Prabhandam states that it was collated by Nathamuni in the 10th century, from the lost writings of the Alvars. Considering that it states that the Azhwars were all pre-8th century, and Aandaal's father Vishnucitta was definitely 8th century the date of 10th century saint given in the article is incorrect. While her texts in their current form are traceable only back to the 10th century, Aandaal as a person probably dates latest from atleast the 8th century Please cite the source which identifies Andal with Sridevi rather than Bhudevi.

Spelling of Names[edit]

In the article, the town of Srivilliputhur is spelled variously as: Srivilliputhur, Srivilliputtur, and Srivilliputhoor. There is a link to a Wikipedia article about the town that also uses various spellings within a single article. Which spelling is preferred? I've changed all instances to Srivilliputhur for consistency. ˘ | ˘ Hwajaetalkcontribs 05:45, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

In the article, Periyalvar is spelled variously as: Periyalvar, Periyalwar, Periazhwar. The multiple spellings are referenced in this Wikipedia article. I've changed all instances to Periyalvar for consistency. ˘ | ˘ Hwajaetalkcontribs 20:56, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Tone of the Article[edit]

The tone of this article is not encyclopedic. Some passages express a specific point of view rather than presenting a neutral position. Perhaps an expert in the subject matter should review the information. My revisions are copyedits for grammar, spelling, consistency, and flow. However, there were portions of text that I hesitated to revise because edits could change the sense of the text. ˘ | ˘ Hwajaetalkcontribs 20:56, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
