Sri Ramanuja Munaye Namaha,
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,
Beautifully said as BhagavAn satisfies 4 types of Bhaktas.
Adiyen would like to summarize that all BhagavAtas has said in this thread referencing to Swami’s Pravachanams.
1) Nivethitha BhagavAta’s view point is about Perumal is Sukumaran (Child Kuzhandhai SriKrishna). This is “Vaatsalya Bhavam“, like a Mother taking care of her Child with affection, Since Perumal’s Thirumeni is Soft and Why such Heavy weight Alankarams.
Reference: PeriyaAlwar’s Mother Love towards SriKrishna in Paasuram “Neerattam, Poochoodhal” etc….as “NaranA Odadhey engai Vaarai………..” & “Senbhaka Poo CHootta Vaarai”….Don’t Run SriKrishna, come here for Bathing and then Flower decorations, etc……..
2) Badrinarayana BhagavAta’s view point is about Perumal is Azhagan (So Dhrusti pattidum). This is “Rakshna Bhavam“, again Mother’s deep caring of her child ‘Protection’ from others evil eyes. Thannudaya Kuzhandhai Azhagai (“Nija Roopa Sevai”) maraipadharkku (to hide) Alankaram seivadhu.
Reference: PeriyaAlwar’s Mother Protection towards SriKrishna in Paasuram “Kaappidal” etc….as “Azhaganey Kaappida Vaarai………..”
3) KongilPiratti BhagavAta’s view point is about Perumal is Rajadhi Raja (King of Kings) and we are HIS servants. This is “Shesha Bhavam to reflect Perumal’s “Swamithvam Gunam)”.
Our Perumal is Supreme King. Oru Raja (SriRama), Thannudaya Gambeeratthai yeppadi velipadutthanumo, adharkku uriya alankaratthai, naam adiyavargal Perumalukku Seiyya vaendum. So Perumal Bhakthargalukku aagavey Prakashikkiraar as said in Shastram as “Bhakthanamthva Prakashasey“. Perumaludaya Uruvamo, Thiru Aabharanagalo, Ayudhangalo, Utsavangalo, Idhu itthanayum Bhaktargalukkuagavey endru, thanakkuaaga alla,
All these types Vaatsalya Bhavam, Rakshana Bhavam, Shesha Bhavam each are 100% BhagavAt anubhavam.
Alwars & Acharyas are representatives of Perumal. So, we apply the same, that is applied to Perumal by doing Alankaram for Alwar/Acharya’s Archai Deities.
Moreover, we should give Gold coins or Money at Alwar-Acharyas Sannidhis, not Just for their Archai forms to appear ‘Swamithivam’, but also for the BhagavtA’s/Archagar’s families sustenance who are DEDICATELDY doing service to BhagavAn, Thayar, Alwars & Acharyas and they don’t have another source of income. The money that we put in Hundi goes to the Temple Trustees, and may not sometimes reach the BhagavtA’s/Archagar’s hands. So, lets support the Kainkarya BhagavAta’s & Priests who do dedicated BhagavAt Kainkaryam by providing them what they need directly in their hands, wherever possible.
Adiyen Sri Velukkudi Krishna Dasan,
Uyya Oraey vazhi UdayavAR ThirvAdi,
