Re: Srirangam Periya Perumaal restored
Date: Fri Mar 09 2001 - 12:35:36 PST

Thanks  to  Perumal. It was all settled the right way now. Our deep 
anguish has been quelled.

I have one question.  If anyone knows the answers please post it in 
the list.

How did this happen at all ?  How could Ganapathy Sthapathi do 
something like this on his own ? Why was this not noticed on the very 
instant, he started this mischief ? How did our periavaas at 
SriRangam temple let the scrapping off go unnoticed until the new 
tantrik  image was about to be carved in?

Maybe that the periavaas have been fighting the battle all along 
(since the beginning) and it came to light only now.
