Dear Members,

Regarding 'devatAntara-sambandha-varjanam' with respect
to the rivers, I had clarrified it as "na hi nidA".

>The noble doctrine of only meditating on and worshipping 
>the Ultimate Cause is here reduced to a mockery of its 
>true self.  

The aim was not this. But as SrI Mani Varadarajan
says so, I request him and others not to take it in such
a sense. The "river concept" under discussions (in this context) 
may not to be taken as a serious "philosophical" point.

But still, regarding the phrase 'paSupati-jaTA-sparSa-SUnya' 
and "inappropriate quote", I will write to clarrify at a 
latter date by quoting other scholars. I need some time to
get the exact reference titles etc.

I do acknowledge the greatness of the river gangA as celebrated in
the authentic scriptures. I agree with the greatness of jAnhavi (river 
ganga) thoyam as "owshadam" (medicine) as it is
Trivikrama-tiru-vadi-theertham, and "vaidya:" (doctor) as NArAyaNa: 
Hari: and I conclude this mail. 

Thanks & Regards
