 Dear Sh Mani,  As I had  expressed it earlier I  have been following
closely the Mails and permit me again, I am amazed at the depth of the
knowledge ,analyzing ability and trying to reach at  logical conclusions.
Whlie this is appreciated  can I use  your platform  for expressing my
thoughts  on various issues which are relevant ,importatant,and need to be
addressed,yes, pertaining to Srivaishnavism- I f so   following is the
message

Srivaishnavism , the noble philosophy  was propagated  by Swami Empermanar
and the lineage can be traced to Veda itself. We have come a long way and
we have miles and miles to go. Can we stop for a moment - and have an
introspection  as  to are we going in the right path- ,are we taking the
people in the right   path  and lastly are we helping  the people  to get
into the right path-- I can listen to the  Voiciforus  yes from
Srivaishnavites  declaring that they are  going in the right path. Respected
Srivaishanvites, my concern is about  the third  ,ARE WE  HELPING  THE
PEOPLE  TO GET INTO THE RIGHT PATH. What I mean is are we helping people to
know more about our great  religion, are we trying to bring  them , are we
welcoming  them into the fold.
Let me diagress little  and take you on a trip to K.L. Recently  Vellukudi
Krishnan wa s on a trip to far eastern countries  and along with him about
25 persons from India also travelled. Few Upanyasams were organized in K.L.
One upanyasam was in Sri Soundararajan  Perumal Koil ,Klang, K.L.  and the
Lord was  so  enchanting which can be aptly described  by our Sh Madava
Kannan  in his own erudite style. Before the upanyasam, we spotted few
gentlemen and ladies  with  Pannirundu  Thirunamam  ,and pardon me for
saying they  were not brahmins but srivaishanavas.Struck by curiosity, we
started the conversation and  in about 20 minutes of conversation by
Vellukudi Swami they  opened up their heart, hearts which were pure, hearts
which were  glued to the Great philosophy, hearts which wanted to know more
about the  path to surrender to Lord Sriman Narayana, hearts which  pleaded
for  inclusion into the fold ,hearts which were ready to do anything ,
hearts which had unflinching, unwavering loyalty towards the philosophy. A
gentlman  pleaded,:" sir we are  saivaites by birth but  now we are
following the Srivaishanavism ,can you please accept us  as one among   the
Srivaishnava. " Tears rolled down our  cheeks when we saw and heard  true
Srivaishanavas and that very moment  the oft repeated message by Vellukudi
Swami flashed in my  mind." So long this Universe is there Srivaishanavism
will be there".  I bowed  and this incident prompted me to raise the third
issue as mentioned above. May I be permitted to continue with this  in my
next mail  as I do not desire to occupy  substantial prtion of the space.
Jaya Sriman Narayana

>2. Oh my dear mind! what is the big deal of being here thinking of Him?
>Emperumaan, who had united with me, to my fullest heart's content, stays at

the

>3. Oh my dear mind! How can I ever forget Him? I am not able to. Let us see

Swami.
>Go, pay obeisance and get saved.

>get saved.

>8. Emperumaan, who has Chakra and the plough, had deceited me as if He
loved
