Title The Raise of Tamilisai by Thevara Moover
Creator P, Divyaroobasharma
Subject Saivism Kuravas
Description As far as Tamil literatures are concerned, most of the books belonging to the Saiva Vaishnavism. It is customary to say that Saiva Vaishnava religion such as Thevaram, Thiruvasagam and Four Thousand DivyaPrabandham. The thevara songs that arose during the Saivism renaissance are seen as a repository of music. During the period when Saivism was caught up in the closeness of other religions, Thirugnanasambandar and Upper Sundarar appeared and passionately dipped the classic Tamil songs into sweet hymns to make the world aware of the true glories of Saivism. They realized that music was popular and composed the songs accordingly. Religious ideas have made music flow into hymns and touch the minds of the people. If you sing them with joy, the mind will be conscious of God. This is the purpose of the Saivism Kuravas. Music helped them to fulfill this purpose. The Tamillsai of the time is best known through the songs of Thevara. The Period of Thevara can be considered as the period of musical upheaval of Tamils. In the natural senses of pleasure, the sense of music is intimately linked to the highest.
