Re: Differences between Bhakti & Prapatti- Sri Velukkudi Krishnan

Dear Smt Raji:
  I just posted Sri vElukkudi Krishnan's article since he had some problems.
Sri mAdhavakkaNNan has beautifully quoted perumAL's words themselves. Lets
do some AzhvAr anubhavam...

  anthima smaraNam is not necessary for a prapannan. In fact if we specify
*anything* (other than the Lord's thiruvadi) as a necessity, then the basic
concept of prapatthi gets violated. That is the innate beauty of prapatthi.
As Sri Velukkudi Krishnan explained, it is a state of mind where you have
totally surrendered with mahA visvAsam. 

  Our dear periyAzhvAr says (in paththAm thirumozhi):
eyppu ennai van^dhu n^aliyum pOdhu
  an^gu Edhum n^aan unnain^inaikka mAttEn
appOdhaikku ippOdhE solli vaiththEn
  aran^gaththu aravaNai paLLiyAnE! 

Hope this explains.
adiyEn
-Viji
