Vaishnavism (Vaishnava dharma) is one of the major traditions within Hinduism. Vishnu is regarded as the Supreme Lord. Traditionally, the Azhvars, or Saints, are twelve in number, though others deeply devoted to Sri Vishnu are also known as Azhvars. These great saints had pure love for Sri Vishnu, and led lives with deep faith and devotion for Him, inspiring others and guiding them on the righteous path.
