Shri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamikku Aneka Koti Namaskaarangal.
Adiyen always used to say Adiyen’s wife that Bhagavan is present as Antaryami right from Brahma to a worm and all should be equal in our view.
Yesterday, we were listening to an Upanyaasam on Ahara Niyamam of Shri Vedanta Desikar. In Aahara Niyamam, it is said that food seen by dog, cat should not be eaten, food touched by air from a cock’s wings should not be eaten, food when shared with a crow from our vessel should not be eaten etc.
So, she started asking, “Vedantis on one hand treat everyone equal but on other hand discriminate all living beings as in Ahara Niyamam. So, which one is correct.”
Adiyen tried to convince her by giving various explanations but she is still confused.
Such questions may be in the mind of many people. So, it’s not only for our family, but considering loka kshemam, Adiyen request Devarir to take us all into right understanding of Vedanta. Devarir always provide authentic information from scriptures, which may convince all.
