Re:Doubt on Thridandi Sanyasi

Dear Bhagavatas/Sri. Hari/Sri. Mani,
I Just want reiterate Sri. Hari's point, with a few words.  
There are very few things in this world that are devoid of belief.  
Given this I prefer to place my belief in the words of an 
accomplished Vedantin in metaphysical matters.  Further, given that, 
at present, there is no evidence that contradicts his statements, it 
is also not irrational to prescribe to his belief. 
Mani, the use of the term vociferous (meaning- offensive bellowing)
is uncalled for.  This term is applicable to Dogmatic individuals, 
who are shallow in their knowledge.  With respect to "Quintessential 
Profound Idealists", like ,   Sri Puttur Krishnaswamy , it would be 
more appropriate to say 
Sri Puttur Krishnaswamy Iyengar and others speak with idealistic 
fervour about ancient Tamil society.

You may ask who am I to speak on this matter?
My response would be as follows.  Sometimes even the most vile of 
individuals may speak profound truths; thus one should first examine 
the statements, before examining the source.
