Dear Sri Madhavan,

Please don't apologize! I don't mean to say that rahasyas shouldn't be
discussed at all, but that these subjects need to be approached with 
delicacy in a mixed audience. The idea of Emberumaan being a 'nAyaka'
in the SRngAra-bhAva makes sense only to those who have surrendered to him;
therein, I humbly feel, lies the rahasya.  And I don't mean to correct you 
but to mediate between two honest opinions.

With respect,
