Dear vaishhNava-s, Let's not forget other deities below! yadoktakaari (= yat+ukta+kaari ie. one who acts per speech? ). Is not this deity the most trustworthy for the prapanna ? Also for the prapanna, is there any deity higher than varaaha-bhagavaan at tiruvidaventai and shriimushhNam ? (because Lord Varaaha delivered the most reassuring of all carama-shlokas for the prapanna.) But for the philosophically inclined, is there any deity better than Lord diipa-prakaasha (viLakoLi-perumaaL) Who seems to echo the vedic phrase (tamaso maa jyotir gamaya). This perumaaL would eventually turn the (dry?) philosopher into a prapanna and send him over to other deities? -Ram PS: Is Lord diipa-prakaasha located at the same tuupul where our beloved tuupul-kulamaNi shrii vedaanta-deshika also appeared ? If so, was not it really Lord diipa-prakaasha (not Lord varada-raaja) who turned deshika over to Lord ranganaatha ?
