What is Adhyayanam?

The Adhyayana Utsava means the Study, Learning, and Remembrance of Vedic Verses.
DIVYA PRABHANDHAM is the composition by the 12 Sri Vaishnava Saints (ALWARS) in praise of Lord Ranganatha, also Sriman Narayana. Divya Prabhandham has 4000 divine verses (Pasurams) and is recognized as Tamil (Tamizl) Veda and is popularly known as NALAYARAM in Tamil. It is also called Dravida Tamil Veda.
The Temple of Lord Ranganatha, an incarnation of Vishnu in Srirangam, in Tamil Nadu, is the seat of Sri Vaishnava culture. Thirumangai Alwar, the last of twelve Alwars sang one of his divine Pasurams (Thiru- Nedun-Thaandakam) to Lord Ranganatha. The Lord (Emperuman) was pleased by the meaning of the pasuram and granted two boons to Thirumangai Alwar. The Alwar took this propitious moment and asked Lord Ranganatha the following two boons:
1. The Lord with his divine consorts should listen to the divine Pasurams, THIRUVOIMOZHI (Thiru-Voi-Moli)
2. The sacred verses of Alwars i.e. 4000 Divya Prabhandams should be given the equal status in terms of
authority and supremacy to that of Vedas.
Lord Ranganatha agreed to the above request and singing of 4000 verses (Divya Prabhandham) has become the Sri Vaishnava tradition of worship. This is celebrated as the Adhyayana Utsavam in Sri Vaishnava temple such as Srirangam and Tirumala
