Sri:
SrImathe Gopaladesika mahadesikaya Namah:

Dearest Bhagawathas,

Thanks to Sri Murali, Sri Seshadri for their abhimanams towards this 
"seelamilla siRiyOn". It is their greatness that they see goodness in 
adiyEn's rambling. As pointed out by Sri Mani, neither did I find anything 
wrong in Smt Shoba's statements/queries. Also, since it was well answered by 
Sri TV Venkatesh, I did not take it further, when I attempted to answer the 
other queries in my earlier mail. Smt Shobha, please raise such 
doubts/concerns, as only that will keep us learning more about our 
sampradayam.

I had heard- read that Emperumaan alone is to be considered as Purushan and 
all jIvan are sthrees (women). That is the reason adiyEn wrote about 
committing ourselves (as sthrees) to our PurushOtthaman. I knew committing 
adultery is shocking; more so, if it to the Greatest PurushOtthaman- who is 
ever willing to forgive me , in spite of my continuous apacharams every 
second. "PithEva puthrasya sakEva sakhyu:- "priya priyaarhasi" -dEva sOdum;"

I had only extrapolated from AzhwAr's nAyikA Bhavams and longing for Him 
alone, and Sri AndAL's "maanidvarkku enRu pEcchupadin vaazhagillEn".

I am sorry, Sri Mani, if I have spelt out some rahasyam as I was not aware 
of it. Since Sri Mani is a well read srivaishnavan and is quite a 
knowledgeable Bhagawatha, it has to be true. Thanks very much, Sri Mani for 
"thirutthi paNikOLLu"fying (correcting) adiyEn.

"avan allaal deivam illai; kaRRinam mEyttha kaNNan kazhal iNai paNimin 
neerE."

Regards
Narayana Narayana
