Dear Sri Sudarshan,
In reply to Sri Ranga's querry about abhivAdanA you wrote in the last
portion,
> (5) Naama:- Scriptures have enjoined that one's
> personal name should be auspicious for a Brahmin,
> indicative of valour for a Kshatriya, indicative of
> wealth for a Vysya and indicative of service for a
> Suudra and should end should end with Sarmaa for a
> Brahmin and Verma for a Kshatriya Gupta for a Vaisya
> and dasa for a Suudra
I have also read about this in the Tamil transalation of 'Sri VishnuPuranam'
..
My doubt now is after samashrayanam, we sri vaishnavas are given"dasa
namas". Should'nt this
be stated in the course of
Abhivadanam(eg.Abivaadaye.............VasuVenkataRaghava Dasa sarma nama
aham asmin boho.) inspite of being of bramhana varna by birth.
kindly enlighten
adiyen ramanuja dasan
