By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Sathakopa, ZaThakopa, shathakopa

Nammālvar is the most celebrated of the twelve Ālvārs.[1] He was also known as Śaṭhakopa or Śaṭhāri because he was an enemy of śaṭhas or hypocrites.


  1. Ālvārs are those who are deeply immersed in God-consciousness.
