Dear prapatti members,

HEre is a small question:

We know that Sri Devi, Bhoo Devi and Neela Devi are amsams of lakshmi devi.
What is the function of these three goddesses? Moreover, is there any 
correlation between "Sita", "andal", "Padmavati", and other "thayars" 
found in the temple. what is the main role of thayar for our salvation? 
How do vadakalai and thengalai differ in the role of thayar?
