Re: Digest Number 347

Dear BhAgavatAs,

Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is the significance
of the nAma that we VaishnavAs wear (12 of em in different places).
I have heard that it is the Bhagavad PAda and have even seen the nama drawn 
with BhagavAn's pAda taking the place of the Nama.

If it is indeed BhagavadpAda, why are all the vigrahAs in all
the temples wearing their own pAda? I recently visited Srirangam
and the Bhattar there, said it was important to take note of the
Paaduka.  Does it signify the NAma we wear?

Please shed some light on this.

Sri Hari Charanam
Sridharan
