Hare Krishna.

Thanks for the reply.

If this is the case, that out of devotion, just as Andal Naachiyaar prayed,
then why not all the deities elsewhere in the other divya desams as well ?
why only at thriupathi are the eyes covered in this manner ? why only for
srinivasa govinda ? why not for lord ranganatha ? etc.

Vaishnava dasan,
