Crossing the ocean etc

SrimatE rAmAnujAya nama:

Dear Bhagavathas:

It may be argued that crossing the ocean by plane is okay etc. But 
all said and done, living in a land far away from "uhandarulina
nilangal" is not how a "true" Srivaishnava is expected to spend his
time. Swami Pillai Lokacharyan in Dvaya Prakaranam first soothram of
Mumukshupadi says "irukkum nAl uhandarunila nilanglile pravanAy
gunAnubhava kainkaryangalile podu
pokkuheyum,.........,vaishnavAdhikArikku avashyApEkshitham". To that
extent, none of us, who live outside of any of the Divya Desams, can
claim to be carrying out the true duties of a Srivaishnava.

Pillai lokAchAryan thiruvadigalE saranam.
