Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha,
Namaskaram Jayaram Swami,
Regarding devareer’s further query “……………..My other point is that, it can be observed Garuda bhagwan sannadhi can be easily located opposite to Perumal unlike Vishvaksena’s………….”
With Acharya ThiruvAdi Bhalam and Velukkudi SriKrishnan Swami’s Aasirvadham, there is a reference in Ramanuja Vaibhavam where Swami says RamanujAr says High level Shastra arthams to learned scholars at the same time to ordinary persons like us Swami RamanujAr doesn’t explain in High level complex way instead Swami says in simple terms as “அப்போது ஒரு சிந்தை செய்து ” concept.
Based on this “அப்போது ஒரு சிந்தை செய்து ” concept, Swami RamanujAr has answered this very same question in the past using “அப்பூச்சி காட்டுதல்” example.
அப்பூச்சி காட்டுதல் means, its a game that Supreme SriKrishna BhagavAn during HIS childhood days at Gokulam used to play with HIS friends, by showing HIS four hands suddenly and making it disappear quickly in fraction of a second. HIS friends get mesmerized with SriKrishna’s actions and get confused by asking “did you show four hands?”, then SriKrishna says, “No, I have only two hands, see my hands” . While the kids were trying to come out this clouded confusion, SriKrishna shows again HIS four hands with Sanghu & Chakkram and make it disappear. HE keeps doing this Leelai with HIS devotees.
So SriKrishna does this அப்பூச்சி காட்டுதல் not only with HIS childhood friends but also with all HIS devotees in a bigger scale in different ways.
Like Sanghu and Chakkaram are Nithya Sooris and making them Appear and DIsappear. Same way VishwaksenAr is Head of all Nithya Sooris, and SriKrishna keep VishwaksenAr Archai in some temples (like make it Appear) in Some Temples and don’t keep VishwaksenAr Archai in some temples (like make it disappear) in some temples. The reason is to induce ஏக்கம்/தவிப்பு in devotees mind, so that the Thirst to get Sevai of Nithya Sooris improve in our mind.
To devareer, HE played “அப்பூச்சி காட்டுதல்” with VishwaksenAr, but for some devotees HE plays Appear/Disappear game with Garuda as well, like Garuda is ThiruvAdi of Perumal seen opposite to Perumal Sannidhi, but in some temple the devotees go with same expectation, but instead of Garuda, there will be Anjaneeya Swami Archai form opposite to Perumal Sannidhi, since Hanuman is also called as ThiruvAdi of Perumal. [PS: Some call Garuda as Periya ThiruvAdi, and Hanuman as SIriya THiruvAdi, but Velukkudi Swami has said, both are to be called as “ThiruvAdi” ONLY and there is none bigger or smaller] .
So making Garuda Archai form Appear infront HIS sannidhi in some temples and making Garuda disappear and making Hanuma Archai form appear infront of HIS Sannidhi is all Perumal Leelai “அப்பூச்சி காட்டுதல்” .
Based on devareer’s Bhakthi towards Sri VishwaksenAr, instead of devareer’s Step1 signature as “adiyen”, Adyen feel devareer should bump up to the Step3 as “adiyen VishwaksenAr Dasan” as discussed in this thread of good, better, best signature formats.
What is devareer thought process on all these?
(ElayaAlwar) Srinivasa (DhoddayacharyAr) Dasan.
