RE: why not to cross the ocean

AS far as I know my acharya 44th jeer of Sri ahobila muth also asked me to
return back from US and in his words - there was no mincing or "overloading
pramanas".  It was very clear -

"enda anda dharmam illada veli naatle irrukke,  oru varshattile tirumbi
vandhudu"

"why are you staying in that non-dharmic land? come back within a year"

I dont know when that year is going to end for me!  it seems like the year
of Pitris!

All said and done,  after reading the news from "smt R. Kalyani of Chembur",
I do feel that we miss out on all the vedas, shastras etc. back home.  those
who may not be very keen on such esoteric subjects will not miss anything.
Those who have had a little bit of taste miss out and suffer outside India
like fish out of water.

Dear Sri Madhavan Annamacharya,

>my ACHARYAN has instructed me never to cross the ocean atany

True. But the inner meaning of your beloved Acharyan's words can be
understood in the following manner.

PramAnam (quotation) :
"tasmAt samudrasya na pibanti" - From the Vedas

Meaning - Do not drink water from the Ocean
