108 Divya desams


108 Divya Desams are Vishnu temples that are mentioned [Mangalasasanam - Praising the glory of the lord] in the works of the Alvars. Divya Desams means a divine place. It is the term given to 108 temples of Lord Vishnu all over India and a few temples outside it. The mentioning of 108 Divya Desams is done in ancient Tamil writings by Tamil saints. Only 106 of these temples are in this material world. The other two being Paramapadam (at the feet of Lord Vishnu) and Vaikuntam (Lord Vishnu's Holy abode). One of the remaining 106 (Salagrama) is in Nepal and the rest are in India spread all over across the sub continent. Most of these have been visited by the Alwars. However, few are only sung and praised by them. Every vaishnavite considers it as his utmost duty to undertake a pilgrimage to each of these 106 divyadesams. It is considered that Azhwars are amsams of Lord Sri Vishnu and they were sent to the earth to establish and spread bhakthi marga. They had spent their conscious time in constant chanting of the Lord and absolute in the knowledge that the Lord will grant them Moksha. They are considered superior to the Rishis because unlike the Rishis (who spent their times in forests in performing yagas, etc., to attain Lotus Feet of the Lord), Azhwars spent their time among ordinary mortals and showed that even an ordinary person can follow the path towards Moksha through their pasurams.
