Srirangam vs Tiruvenkatam vs Kanchi

Dear Sri Dileepan,

You will remember that a while ago I suggested that we should have in 
one of our Conferences, a "Patti- Manram" type of discussion on the 
various deities celebrated in the Divya Desams. I am glad that you have 
initiated a delectable debate which gives us deep insights into various 
view points. May be, we can still think of including such discussions in 
any of our future Seminars.

After this, we may perhaps have a similar discussion on the various 
Kalyana Gunas of the Lord. I have heard in Kalakshepams that the 
Nityasuris in Srivaikuntam spend their time (Kalakshepam) in discussing 
the Gunanubhavam of the Lord.

Such discussions give us an opportunity to go over and over again on the 
soul- stirring Pasurams and Stotrams of Azhwars and Acharyas.

Well done.The important thing, however, is to ensure that there is no 
room for any rancour in such discussions, which in any event, 
I believe, we are mature enough to avoid.
