Dear Bhakthi list members,

This is my first mail to this group. I am just a reader of the postings. 
I just found this yesterday and felt like sharing it.
When I visited the Malibu temple near LA, I found that in the Sri rAmar 
sannidhi at one of the corners of the temple, the Thayar vigraham had 
the left hand/palm pointing down to the ground, instead of the Thiruvadi 
(as the Thayar vigraham was placed to the left of Sri rAmar) and the 
right hand/palm in blessing posture.
