Re: Has anyone seen Lord Laxmi Narayana

Priya Bhagawat Bandhu,

Yes, we should visualise Lord Sri Mannarayana every
where, in everything, taking inspiration from that
fgreat Bhakta Sikhamani, Prahlada. "Indu kaladandu
ledani...." is a poem which almost all telugu knowing
people know by heart. It is a real gem from the
Ghantam of that great devotee-poet Sri Potanamatya.

I heard the "Pallandu...." in some temples but could
not understand it. Could you kindly explain it? It
felt very nice in my mind when I mentally recited.

And could you kindly explain the meaning of Adien and
Adial? Thanks in advance.

Swamy
