Dear Bhaktas,

I was just chatting on this topic with my aunt today morning. Yes,
the incident may be true. However, PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO BAD
OMEN ASSOCIATED WITH THIS.

Now refer Daya Shatakam of Swamy Desikan;

ROOTAA VRUSHACHALA PATEH:
PAADEH MUKA KANTHI PATRALACCHAAYAA 
KARUNEH SUKAYASI VINATAAN
KATAKSHA VITAPAI: KARAAPACHEYA PALAI: 

Here, Swami desikan says that Dhayaa Devi is standing tall in
Thirumalai representing the merciful aspect of Sri Venkateswara. She
grows at the feet of the Lord of Venkatam and serves as His kalpaka
tree that fulfills the wishes of those who pray to Him. His cool
glances at the sight of His devotees cause the tree of Dhayaa Devi to
send out tender shoots and ripe tasty fruits. Those,who worship at
the sannidhi of Sri Venkateswara become beneficiaries of His Dhaya
and enjoy the fruits of that Kalpaka tree. Hence, Swami Desikan says
that the Karunaa Katakshams of the Lord of Thiruvenkatam yield
indescribable riches to the devotees . His Dhaya makes Him eminently
enjoyable.

=========================

As you can comprehend from the above verse in Daya Shatakam, the
LORD's GRACE IS ALWAYS ON US AND WILL NEVER LEAVE US.

=====

Reasons why the thirumangalyam would have fallen:

1.)After thirumanjanam the koil bhattars (priests) would not have put
in the mangalyam properly, there by causing it to fall.

All other propositions would be absurd by the concept of reductio de
absurdum.

I request members not to belive or taken into some SLANDEROUS NEWS
spread by some irresponsible or incorrigible public.

VinA venkatesham nana thO nanathas sadA venkatesham smarami smarami

Jayatu jayatu devO devakin nandanOyam

Thanks and Regards,

Adiyen Ramanuja daasan,

Malolan
