Thiru Pey Azhwar was born in Mylapore, Chennai in the Tamil month Aippasi with the birth star Sadayam on a Shukla Paksha Navami day. Thiru Pey Azhwar was found on a lotus flower in the temple tank at Thirukaiyilai Sri Adikesava Perumal Temple. He was believed as reincarnation of Nandakam/sword, one of the Panchayudham of Lord Vishnu.
Pey Azhwar visited many sacred shrines of Lord Vishnu and sung praising the glories of Lord. He arrived at Thirukkovilur on a heavy down pouring night where Poigai Azhwar was already took shelter in the hermitage of Sage Mrigandu where there was tiny space to stretch out for a person. Shortly, there arrived Boothathazhwar requesting for a shelter. Sage Mrigandu guided him to the tiny room where Poigai Azhwar was already settled, with an instruction that the place adequate for one to stretch out and two could sit. Within no time, there appeared Pey Azhwar with the same request to protect himself from the torrential rain. Sage Mrigandu gracefully led him to the tiny space where Poigai Azhwar and Boothathazhwar were already in with an instruction that the small place was capable for one could stretch out, two could sit and three could stand.
The three zealous devotees of Lord Vishnu spend the night standing together on the tiny space and discussing the eternal glories of Lord. Soon, they felt a sudden congestion and the presence of fourth one shoved into their space followed with lightning and thunder. Instantaneously they realized the presence of Lord Sriman Narayana and sung praising the glories of Lord. Later, the three Azhwars were visited the Thirukkovilur Divya Kshetram and sung the splendor of Lord at their heart’s content.
