Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha

Dear Shri Vaishnavite Bhaktas:

While browsing through the various messages, sometimes I feel pained to read 
unwarranted comments on relgious matters.  As I had mentioned in my earlier 
correspondence, just think about Perumal and Thayar if you happen to visit 
other temples, which may be out of necessity to go with friends, espeically 
if one is involved in some social services as Adiyen is habituated to.

But dear Bhaktas:  do not insult the beliefs of other sects.  Ultimately, 
other sects people will also follow the teachings of
Sri Vasihnavism.  From my personal experience, I can say that other sects' 
people are proud of Sri Vaishnavism especially Nalaayira Divya Prabhandams 
etc.

We should highlight about our good nature and beautiful Paasurams in our 
sect and implore them to join us.  Of course, if they talk ill of our 
Sampradhayams, we have to give fitting reply.  Otherwise best thing is to 
ignore them as some of them might talk out of jealousy also.

Please forgive me if I have tried to give lecture to our Bhaktas.

Adiyen Ramanuja Daasan  Murali Iyengar
