Significance of Lord Sri RanganAthA's Sleeping Posture
Date: Thu Apr 05 2001 - 11:20:33 PDT

Dear Sri BhagavathAs,

Our Lord SriRanganAtha is actually in Yoga-Nidra posture and appears 
to be sleeping.As the Lord declared in the Bhagavadgita 
'KarmaNyEvAdhikArasthe..' he wants to depict that Jiva's have 
complete freedom of choice in deciding their karma or actions but not 
with respect to the phalam.He wants to be a silent sAkshi.Our Lord 
does not want to interfere in the karma adhikaram of the Jivas.This 
is in AdiYen's opinion the significance of the Lord's reclining 
posture.This is with regard to ordinary JivAs blinded by 
mamakaram.But with respect to surrendered JivA's he will be ever 
vigilant and ready to guide and help in all respects.

Namo Sriman NArayana
