Srimathe Ramanujaya Namah!

Sriranga Narayana Jeeyar Swamigale Saranam!

Velukkudi Swamigal Thiruvadigale Saranam!

Aneka Koti Namaskaram Swami,

Adiyen very much understand that any food we prepare should be offered to Perumal before we consume. Adiyen has 2 situations. 1. Due to practical challenges, if the wife has to cook during her “periods”, can that food be offered to Perumal? 2. When we (Ramanuja Sambandhis through Panchasamskaram) have to travel internationally frequently for work and have to eat in a restaurant (of course no onion/garlic vegetarian food) with clients due to work compulsion, what process to follow?

Adiyen,
Ramanuja Dasan

Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,

 

Dear BhagavAta,

 

Adiyen has heard one of Swami’s audio “Perfect questions Perfect Answers English Boston” where Swami has provided practical answers for MANY practical questions faced by devotees who wanted to follow ParaBrahmam Sriman NarayanAn irrespective of Pancha Samsakaram. BhagavAtas question2 is one of the question in that audio.

 

Aidyen believe, this audio recording was during Swami’s 2012 Upanyasam tour to USA.

 

Please check with Vedics.org or Kinchit.org. There is Vedics USA & India contacts in the “About US” section.

Thank you Swami, Adiyen is a longtime vedics member and I’ve written to Vedics US admin to see if they can share that fortunate file. It’s so great that with our Acharyar’s blessing you were able to remember this part. It’s also very interesting that adiyen got the great fortune of getting first time the darshan of Velukkudi Swami at Portland in 2012.

Sri Ramanuja Munaye Namaha,

Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,

 

BhagavatA received Swami’s sevai first time in 2012 is “Aho Dharshanam….Aho Dharshanam… Aho Dharshanam…..”

 

This is like SriKrishna BhagavAn left Gokulam (India) and went to Madhura (Outside India) to give Dharshanam to global devotees.

 

Swami’s Arul//Kataksham pattavargal “Maru Piravi yeduppadhu Illai“. BhagavAtas ThiruvAdikku Pallanadu.

 

For Question1, adiyen has heard from Swami’s Upanaysams and from other Devotees with Acharya Krupai,

 

During those times for women, basically Men are supposed to cook and offer to BhagavAn and provide Perumal prasadham to their wife. If Men is on travel and Wife is at home during those times, then the female to cook and offer to a Perumal Photo either in kitchen, since she still needs to eat some food (make some simple food like Uppuma or Pongal etc…), But entering the Perumal Ull (Prayer room) should be avoided. At the same time, the ThiruAardhanai cannot be skipped during those times, so the male member to carry their own Aaradhanai Perumal photo (like Shaligramam photo) during travel and do some Aaradhai to their own Aaradhanai Peurmal Photo in which ever place they are staying (like hotel or someones home etc..) ,or ATLEAST do MAANASIKA Aardhanai. It shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes. The male to make sure they are in tradition, either Panchakajam for married Brahmins or just Veshti, whichever is their own tradition of any varnas.

 

The intention here is, Perumal Aardhanai to be done with Yatha Shakthi (one’s own Capacity) with Acharya Krupai by the male, and the women in those times still needs to take rest, since their Uterus cannot take stress, so BhagavAn has made it simple by making the Husband do the cooking on behalf of her. This is also a BhagavAta Kainkaryam, which is a ultimate “SwaDharmam“.

 

In Valmiki Ramayanam, SriRama did the house work when Sita Piratti was not able to cook during those times.
