Srimathe Rangaramanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha
Srimathe Sri Varaha Mahadesikaya Namaha
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy Thiruvadigaley Sharanam
Thiruman was found from very old stone age carving. That too Vadakalai like U shape. I saw long back in social media.
Keeping it apart, whether it is BrahmaSri Damodara Dheekshitar Swamy or Vittaldas Maharaj Swamy’s Ramayanam the lineage of Anantarama Dheekshitar Swamy
All are extremely good upanyasakars no doubt
Only problem is, they cannot forego lord Shiva. Every possible way they inject Parameshwara prabhavam in Srimath Ramayanam
One thing adiyen learnt, listen to them but leave what you don’t think relevant.
See, it is obvious, being Iyer they cannot fully submit to Perumal. In fact Vittaldas Maharaj Swamy is more SriVaishnavite than all of us here.
He sings so many bajans but they are stranded between lord Shiva & Perumal when it comes to upholding Sampradhayam
There should be a straightforward answer to the question
Shiva or Vishnu?
Vittaldas Swamy said:
“I pray to ayyanar & local deities for Sri Krishna Bhakthi”
The essence extracted & influenced by Sri Krishna Premi Swamy
So being Krishna Bhaktha we should let them be on their own & not interfere
Unfortunately Krishna Premi Swamy family also talks about lord Shiva (Rudra) & stuff nowadays
Premi Anna was more determinant on spreading Perumal Bhakthi in olden days but it slowly faded
Sri Hariji Swamy or Smt Vishaka Hari or grandchildren don’t do upanyasam like Premi Anna
Half the story of Thirumazhisai Azhwar was swallowed due to caste fear in Tamilnadu
That Athmartham is not there. First upanyasakar should beleive in what he/she says. Summa double standards vechundu sonna adhu shobikkadhu
Why even our Velukkudi Swamy didn’t talk much about yOgam during olden days!!!
During “Sollin selvar” title conferring upanyasam not even once he uttered yOgam stuff & its merits in Srirangam or SriRanga Mahathmyam
Because apdi onnu illa so sollala, irundha solli irupparey !!!
In fact it’s other way round:
I clearly remember our Swamy said “We SriVaishnavite need to do SandhyAvandhanam it contains sashtanga pranamam, pranAyAmam, dhyAnam & japam, no need for seperate routines”
Swamya illa nu solla sollungo pakalam
Nowadays dhyAnam and yOgam is the talk of the town
Even last EnPani talks about dhyAnam for illness prevention. Question is how? Who is guru? Who teaches it? Where does it fit in between Nithya KarmAnushtAnam? What is the syllabus?
What else & what not?
Our Srivaishnavite community don’t support monetarily
We talk loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu
But won’t take a Paisa outside
Iyer contribute more to Sampradhayam & they are more in numbers
So to run the show some compromises have to be made
We left a SriVaishnavite (periya vachan pillai parambarai) to suffer (monetarily) & shaivism protected SriVaishnavism & gave Krishna Premi Swamy back to us
Technically we should be thankful to them
They have to say both being thraiyak pundram (horizontal). Ref: Sri Velukkudi Swamy on pundram terminology
Almost every Shaivaite say “Let the creator be anyone” why this uncertainty?
Ivalukkey doubt, nAma roopa Bedham unda kedaiyadha nu
Either say lord Parameshwaran or Sada Shiva the creator or accept Sriman Narayana why double standards?
We clearly say Sriman Narayana Preethyartham
They say Parameshwara Preethyartham
So to have a positive perspective,
Please understand they say Ramayanam for Shiva bhakthas and not for Sri Vaishnavites
It is their Ramayanam, with their interpretations, we just have to digest it
Adiyen can quote hundreds of analogies
Comparison of Sita to Shiva
Equalising parakramam of SriRam with Shiva
Rama & Lakshmana driving away deers & angry on all mrugam
Sri Ram was so compassionate on squirrel but Vittaldas Maharaj Swamy says they both were angry on all animals espm deer
Sri Vittaldas Maharaj Swamy’s Ramayanam is Hanumayanam because Hanuman is direct amsam (representation) of Shiva it seems even though vayu putram
Hanuman could have finished Ramayanam but he left some chance for Sri Rama!!?
Na directa vey soldren avalala shivana vittu kudukka mudiyAdhu
Adhu thavarum kidaiyadhu. That’s their view.
Shiva Purana Thula Vishnu va kollanumna konnu dhana aganum !!!
Perumalukkey Shivanoda kaal theriyadhu.
So avalukku doubt varardhula ashcharyam illa
Setting these aside, let’s drink SriRamamrutham and let go others in filter because we don’t know Sanskrit & they do. It’s as simple as that .
Today my son’s nakshatra birthday Punarpoosam
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy & other BhAgavathAs please bless
