Jaya Sriman Narayana
"Sri  Ramanuja Vani" this is a quarterly journal of  Sri Ramanuja Vedhanta  Centre.The Editor is Dr.J Parthasarathy  and the office is at 10 South Mada Street,Triplicane,Chennai 600005.Phone  Chennai 844 1806.Rate of subscription  Annual  Rs 20/  Life200/.
The magazine is in English  and comes out with  a number of  articles  by learned  and knowledgeable scholors,vidwans profs etc.We were reading the present issue Vols,24&25  and at page 5 there was  a book review on the book titled " Tengaliyum  and Vadagaliyum" Let me reproduce para  two of the review of the book for the benefit of  my dear Srivaishnavites.
"The present publication from his pen touches the rather sensitivefield of Tengalai and Vadagalai on which passions are easily roused and mind gets  befuddled(-dictionary meaning of this word  =confuse-this is mine) owing to long-cultivated attachments.It is sad chapter of our history that what started as differences of itrepretations of texts got hardened into social  splits and two seperate sects,often at logger heads with each other at different levels,came into being.
The age of Western materialism is tending to engulf all our ancient religious institutions and even over throw the foundations of our beleifs.In this alarming situation,it is prime necessity for memebrs of the two sects to understand with love and sympath theological frameworks of their two sects with their essentials unities and their differences in certain view points within the overall set up of doctrines of the religion.Such a sypathetic understanding,cultivated with love reaching out to each other  as a common bond will surely prove effective in spreading the Sri Vaishnava spiritual visions appeal to more and more  populations.
We find a dispassionate expostion in this book of the agreements and the differences of the two sects on Tatva,Hita and Purushavtha(Moksha)........"
Every  one agrees to the above  but act entirly  to the  contrary.
Let Sriyapathi  Lord Narayana  take us  in the right direction of following  Emperumanar Darsanam.
