Irāmāṉuja Nūṟṟantāti is the name of a work authored by Amutaṉār or Tiruvaraṅkattamutaṉār.—The Śrīvaiṣṇava hagiographical tradition places the author of the Irāmāṉuja Nūṟṟantāti, Tiruvaraṅkattamutaṉār or Amutaṉār, as he is also referred to, within Rāmānuja’s own lifetime. [...] The Irāmāṉuja Nūṟṟantāti is an extensive poem of 108 verses composed in the kalittuṟai viruttam metre. In terms of its poetic type it falls within the “super-genre” called pirapantam. Zvelebil (1974, 193) has pointed out that the great variety of poetic forms that fall within this category have only this much in common: “the character of a connected narrative with strong elements of description”.
