Swamy mentions, in one of his upanyasams, that Thiruman represents Baghawan’s sri paada thooli and SriChurnam rep Thayar.
With the application of Thiruman and SriChurnam on our forehead, we dentify ourselves that we belong to them or they are our parents….
On another note, they guard us from anything right from evil to ….preventing us from visiting places that we are not supposed to….
For instance, with Thiruman and Srichurnam on forehead one should be hesitant to visit Bhoajanalayam ( restaurants etc.,) and other places like cinema, bars …and so on… and so on….
Because, it is none of our business and supposed to follow what our aAchayans instructed…and our ancestors follow.- materialistic matters…
But practically, nowadays, it is becoming common ( and also because of the, so- called, unavoidable situations etc.,) to see that persons boldly visiting those places with them on their forehead.
But, atleast,nowadays it is good to see youngsters with Thiruman and SriChurnam on their forehead… including adiyean….😀😀.
