Namaskaarams to all Bhaktas, The recent topic being discussed on the Bhakti-Prapatti group has been of great interest to me. I also wonder why Thayar Mahalakshmi and the Nitya Suris (Garuda, Anjaneya and Visvaksena) need Upadesham. Since they are residents of Vishnu Loka aren't they therefore exempt from Vishnu Maaya? Is Upadesham from the Lord intended to constantly remind them of their exalted status and therefore, help them to avoid pitfalls which are common to ordinary mortals? I would greatly appreciate the input of all the Bhaktas on the group, particularly scholars like Sri Sadagopan, Sri Sreekrishna and Sri Dileepan. Dhanyosmi, Muralidhar Rangaswamy P.S. If I have failed to mention other scholars in my post, it is only my ignorance. No offence/disrespect intended.
