Dear Swamy / Periyava, 

Adiyen Ramanuja Dasan ,

Adiyen neechan love to learn Divya Prabandham, While learning if there is a chance to participate in Ghosti and those timings is it allowed to read from book and recite the Alwar pasurangal  ?! and its temporary or always its allowed to read from Books even in Temple Ghosti, purpadu also ?

Adiyen Neechan,

Swamy, it is always good to participate in Prabnadam recitation for pleasing Perumal. He doesn’t bother whether we are reciting from memory or from book. He is simply happy that we are trying. If He is pleased what more do we need?

However, when many experts are reciting from memory, if we sit with the book, our recitation pace may derail their spontaneous flow.. So, it is better not to disturb them. In such situations it is better to be a listener than a reciter.

But, if most members of the Gosthi  are like ourselves – seeing the text and slower (compared to the experts), then we can definitely join the Goshti with our text (electronic or printed).

Whether we are a listener or reciter, Perumal is pleased with our attitude and effort.

adiyen dasan.

But sometime few people are showing BITTER face when we try to read from Books as we are interested to recite and Ghosti.. but they are not interested on us… but for us Baghwan is the only interest let’s focus

Srimate Ramaanujaye Namaha!

In addition to the principles shared by Kambandasan swamy, would like to add some info heard form Swamy’s upanyasams..

Swamy, says in general, it is better to use books instead of mobile as we may get distracted by other info in mobile. (Also to encourage publishers)

Coincidentally there is a small reference to this question in Hari Vamsam 165# (7th to 8th minute).
