Srimathe Ramanujaya Namah! Sri Sriranga Narayana Jeeyar Swamigale Saranam
Sri Velukkudi Swamigal Thiruvadigale Saranam!
Adiyen’s first and immediate thoughts. Upanishad says (just heard this again from Swami’s Australia Ubaya Vendantham Upanyasam) nothing can exist (including achit) if Paramatma (Sriman Narayana) doesn’t permeate into them. If that is correct all these so-called “other religion people” are also a property of our ParaBrahmam and what’s wrong in them entering the temples (this was demonstrated by our Jagadacharyar – Harikulathar Vaibhavam, more examples Bibi Nachiyaar, Thuluka Nachiyar, and many more). If anyone (including a person who practices “Sanathan Dharma”) violates a code of conduct in the place of worship than that can’t be allowed. Beyond that, as we all strongly believe “அவனின்றி ஒரு அணுவும் அசையாது”, He will take care of any ulterior motives of any individuals, who are trying to destroy this eternal religion.
Now addressing Choodamani Swami’s question on a Smartha family going to Nagore, adiyen could only say Avatara Purushas like our Velukkudi Swami and others are doing their excellent service in spreading the beauty of our religion and attracting/retaining a lot of people back to our path. What we can do on our part is to follow our purvacharyas instructions as much as possible that will impress/influence others and they can also come back and reach Sriman Narayana at the earliest.
Please pardon this adiyen for any wrong saying. Also apologize for Adiyen jumping the gun before waiting for Velukkudi Swami and other senior members giving a response.
Alwar, Emperumanaar, Acharyar Thiruvadigale Saranam!
