In this angi-anga-upanga structure, the Vedas which are the angi (the main body) have the most prominence due to their greatness. Is there something like that in the Divya prabandhams?

Acharya Hrudhayam 44:
“sakala vidyAtika vEdam pOlE, idhuvum divyaprabandhap pradAnam.”

Nammazhvar’s four works – Thiruviruththam, Thiruvasiriyam, Periya Thiruvandadhi and Thiruvaymozhi – are considered as the angi and therefore prominent amongst the Divya Prabandhams.
