Just so enlightening

Adiyen would like to humbly request Sri Acharya U Ve Velukudi Krishnan Swamy to include vrithasura moksham as well in srimad bhagavatham discourses if possible.

Srimathe Rangaramanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha

Adiyen have lot of uncleared doubts on VrithrAsurA’s moksham.

Sometimes i hear “VrithrAsuran asked for moksham so he got it” while Indran looking for loka ishwaryam so he got it

I cannot buy this justification.

Its PerumaL’s duty to keep everyone happy here as well as in para lokam.

Like he rescued prahladhan , also serving as security to mahabali why didin’t Krishna save VrithrAsuran if he was full of devotion?

From VrithrAsuran point of view what made him continue fighting if he knew Vishnu is sAthvikam?

If Indran knew VrithrAsuran as a Vishnu devotee what made him kill with VajrAyudham?

How can a guy kill Vishnu devotee being a bhAgavathA?

Is it like Gajendra moksham where Crocodile being a BhAgavatha killed first then Gajendran was taken to his abode later?

When Moksham is eternal peace and dwAra pAlakA wants to come soon in fewer janmAs by being against Vishnu , then hiranyakashipu, kamsan, SisupAlan, Crocodile etc got the Gift soon

It means torturing a BhAgavathA will take you to moksham sooner

Isn’t it an interesting inference?

Did Krishna really favour VrithrAsuran?

When Parikshit asked this question, Sukhar took PrahlAdhan example.

When the question was about VrithrAsuran Krishna being unfavourable to asurA family how PrahlAdan story was a justification?

Is prahlAdhan & VrithrAsuran same?

Adiyen will try to answer swami from srimad bhagavatham swami

After Viśvarūpa was killed, his father, Tvaṣṭā, performed a sacrifice to kill Indra. Unfortunately, if mantras are chanted irregularly, they yield an opposite result. This happened when Tvaṣṭā performed this yajña. While performing the sacrifice to kill Indra. Tvaṣṭā chanted a mantra to increase Indra’s enemies, but because he chanted the mantra wrong, the sacrifice produced an asura named Vṛtrāsura, of whom Indra was the enemy.

Vritasura still had material bonding and wanted to take revenge on Indra for killing his brother viswaroopa however he prays paramatma to renounce his bondings still did his purpose.

King Indra had first accepted Viśvarūpa as his priest and thereafter killed him. Reminding Indra of his heinous activities, Vṛtrāsura said, “If one is a devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Viṣṇu, and depends on Lord Viṣṇu in every respect, then victory, opulence and peace of mind are all inevitably available. Such a person has nothing for which to aspire in the three worlds. The Supreme Lord is so kind that He especially favors such a devotee by not giving him opulence that will hamper his devotional service. Therefore I wish to give up everything for the service of the Lord. I wish always to chant the glories of the Lord and engage in His service. Let me become unattached to my worldly family and make friendships with the devotees of the Lord. I do not desire to be promoted to the higher planetary systems, even to Dhruvaloka or Brahmaloka, nor do I desire an unconquerable position within this material world. I have no need for such things.” this shows Vritasuras greatness as sri vaishnava , karma is karma Indra has to face it but with namperumals extreme grace and indras acceptance of his sin and surrender to sri hari.

Indra admitted himself that vritasura was greatest devotee even though he is a demon but both understand the war as kainkaryam as per bhagavatam

iti bruvāṇāv anyonyaṁ
dharma-jijñāsayā nṛpa
yuyudhāte mahā-vīryāv
indra-vṛtrau yudhām patī

Vṛtrāsura and King Indra spoke about devotional service even on the battlefield, and then as a matter of duty they again began fighting.

After this Indra and his elephant was swallowed
By Vritasura and he thought indra was dead then vritasura was ready to leave his body by yoga samadhi when vritasura body was immobile then indra being protected tore open his abdomen and cut head for 360 days after actual vritasura jeevathma already attained moksha.

When all the devas requested Indra to kill Vṛtrāsura since asura army led by vritasura were killing devas already, he refused because Vṛtrāsura was a brāhmaṇa but Indra fought Vṛtrāsura, but when Vṛtrāsura was killed, everyone was satisfied but Indra, who knew Vṛtrāsura’s position. This is the nature of a great personality. Even if a great personality acquires some opulence, he is always ashamed and regretful if he acquires it illegally. Indra could understand that he was certainly entangled by sinful reactions for killing a brāhmaṇa. Indeed, he could see sinful reaction personified following him, and thus he fled here and there in fear, thinking of how to rid himself of his sins.

We can easily misunderstand anything swamy

on July 14, 2020

Swamy,
Completely disagree
“The Supreme Lord is so kind that He especially favors such a devotee by not giving him opulence that will hamper his devotional service.”

PrahlAdan was given lOka ishwaryam & Narasimhar earned title PrahlAdha Varadan even though PrahlAdan did not have any wish

Dhruvan after sAkshAthkAram was given a place to rule then come to him later

Adiyen humble request its good not to involve in bhagavata apacharam with vritasura bhagavata’s quote from sri bhagavatham no matter what swamy’s view is.

Isn’t it an interesting inference?:

It’s kainkaryam and accepting the command/leela of Sri hari , after all this is Leela Viboothi what do we expect swamy

Sri Bhagavtham says

yathā dārumayī nārī
yathā patramayo mṛgaḥ
evaṁ bhūtāni maghavann
īśa-tantrāṇi viddhi bhoḥ

As a wooden doll that looks like a woman or as an animal made of grass and leaves cannot move or dance independently, but depends fully on the person who handles it, all of us dance according to the desire of the supreme controller, the Personality of Godhead. No one is independent.

on July 13, 2020

“Like he rescued prahladhan , also serving as security to mahabali why didin’t Krishna save VrithrAsuran if he was full of devotion?”

At initial stage unlike prahlada vritasura was taking revenge for viswaroopas death and led army against devas but already indra surrendered Sri hari for killing vritasura or for protection.

on July 14, 2020

The point is both surrendered Swamy.
One lives & one is dead.

on July 14, 2020

No one is independent???

At one end we say “we are responsible for our karma”
At the other end we say “No one is independent”

We keep interchanging these shlokAs for our convenience.

on July 14, 2020

Vritasura only surrendered right before his death

Is it like Gajendra moksham where Crocodile being a BhAgavatha killed first then Gajendran was taken to his abode later?

Isn’t it an irony both got shaapa in previous births to make them fastly attaim moksha?

on July 14, 2020

Not fastlty 1000 deva years Swamy.

At one end PerumaL asks Arjuna to fight & do his duty

At other end he asks to completely surrender

For Draupathi & Gajendra Vishnu waited for them to completely surrender.

Now question is, at which point to surrender?

on July 14, 2020

Depends on particular Jeevathma swamy

These slokas are example that vritasura was one of greatest sri vaishnava and litterally an azhwar swamy

Did Krishna really favour VrithrAsuran?

Obviously swamy by getting ridding of his samsara bondings at final stage , made him renounce it, aathmasakshaatkaram, paramabhakti, paramathma swaroopa gnanam swamy although Sri Perumal was already tied by surrender of devas and Indra due to killing of devas by vritasura and army.

He is Swathanthran swamy we can’t question him.

He will have some readymade answers for us.

Vaaliya vey veluthu kattinAr
Adiyen emmAthram?

Vaazhrathukku vazhi kaetAl sAgarthukku vazhi soldrAn PerumaL.

Sari VrithrAsuran asked moksham should Krishna give it immediately?

If that’s the case everyone who requires moksham should get it immediately.

Fighting war made a Kainkaryam in devareer’s post? How does it become Kainkaryam?

See if Dhuryodhanan has given 5 pieces of land no war would have happened.

Saying VrithrAsuran a parama BhAgavatha and yet he went on to fight is degrading BhAgavatha lakshanam.

Idhayum nAm nyAya paduthugirom.

If both of them surrender PerumaL must give amicable solution.

Idhai adiyen oppu kolla mudiyadhu. No proper justification.

Dhanyosmi swami for the different view of the moksham
But however we debate as vikram swamy said

Nirankusa Swathanthran cannot be questioned on whatever he does

Nobody can know Sri Hari

on July 14, 2020

But as Adiyargal we shud accept whatever namperumal does , as blessing cos he knows what he is doing more than anybody

on July 14, 2020

everybody is entitled in their opinion swamy unless its acharya nobody can convince anyone swamy but valuable points could be put forth as humble suggestion swami
