Subject: Emperumanar Darsanam Are we being marginalised Mail No 11.


All awiat the arrival of Lord Narayana.

G.M.1 to Adiyen:  Do you think you are doing the right thing by exposing  the srivaishnavites.What pleasure you derive by doing so.According to us every thing is normal  and more and more activities are being carried out.

Adiyen:  Swamin forgive me if I have done any abhacharam.

Gm1.There is a saying in Tamil  "you pinch a baby  and you rock the cradle also"If you cannot join us  leave us alone.

Gm.2 to GM1    : He has not said anything wrong.He has kept a big mirror in front of you and if your face appears which you dont like ,he is not be blamed.One thing I can add,.I may not be a srivaishnavite but majority of the srivaishnavites who are with us  honestly feel the same way .Neither they have the courage to tell what my friend says nor any desire to  correct it for  innumerable reasons and  we gain out of it.

Adiyen:  Please understand, my submissions and arguments were  made not to hurt the feelings of any one.If you srivaishnavites are doing good things please continue to do it and we are very very  grateful for it.All my pleadings are  it is not  enough .....

Just then Viswakshenar enters
Echerikkai,Echerikkai....... Jaya Sriman Narayana...Jaya Sriman Narayana,,,

Lord Narayana:   It appears you have already started your submissions even before my arrival.

Adiyen:  There has been some misunderstanding my Lord.Not all srivaishnavites appreciate my submissions  and I have to  clarify it to my friends.

Lord Narayana :  Did I not tell you.

Adiyen:  Lord I have told the truth nothing but the truth.May be  my language  at times might have been blunt  and I might have used inappropriate  language.All the same I am not going to be detered  by  negative  feeling  of few of my friends. Only time will tell .

Lord Narayana: What is this.I am here to hear the case and give my verdict and you are relying on time to tell the truth.

Adiyen:  Everthing is unto You my Lord  and may I be permitted to conclude my submissions  to day my Lord.

Lord Narayana:  Yes  go ahead.

Adiyen:  Lord  my last point  also clearly proves srivaishnavites have been marginalised becuase of their  action and in action.Lord in a materialistic world  if a person wants results he talks less and  concentrates on action and  will not leave it till acheives what  he is required to do.You go on talking and talking and talking ,you will be doing nothing but talking only.You talk and act or show the way then only people will have faith in following what you say.Lord pardon me for saying, srivaishnavites are experts par excellance in talking  and it stops at that.Can I say  they are a bunch of sleeping giants with all the  resources, intelligence,plans ,ideas,communication network,you name it My Lord. Instances are  aplenty and it happens every minute Lord , not the action  but inaction and any one can see for himself. Lord, imagine a thief enters a house during day time when plenty of  inmates are there.First he enters the hall replaces the pictures  and takes away the good pictures worth tons of gold.Every one sees and no one questions him.Some of the inmates enjoy the replaced photos and this encourages the thief to enter the dining room.Here he places all the junk food brought with him in the bag and takes away the wonderful home made prasadams .Behold my Lord,every one hits the ceiling after tasting the junk food and there is a round of hand claps this time.Children and young ones are immersed in the junk food. The thief gets bolder and bolder and he enters the study room and quietly keeps some trash and takes away the books which cannot be quantified in terms of wealth.The kartha of the house flips the first page gets attracted and passes on to his better half and the book goes a full cycle and by this time the whole inmates transform into new avathar.The thief having completed his job goes out of the house and boldly changes the name of the house which had  the most beautiful name "Emperumanar Darsanam"  Much more is to done than  arranging for dhadhiyaradhanams.Lord, on one hand they are  lethargic and on another hand a number of their actions are aginst the principles of Emperumanar Darsanam.Blood should boil and we should have sleepless nights if any thing happens either to any srivaishnavite or  to Emperumanar Darsanam. I admit my Lord,once in a blue moon the srivaishnavites have reacted when their house was under fire .Only when the shoe pinches he awakens and goes without the shoe thereafter.Let all the Srivaishnavites, atleast for the world ,show they are together.If they do it, half the battle is won  and it can stem the land slide marginalisation.Let me conclude  with pain in my heart that  we srivaishnavites have been marginalised and  we ourselves are to blamed for it. Lord ,if this continues you are sure to hear another case very shortly when an ariveeli like  me is going to argue "Where is Emperumanar Darsanam - safe in a library"
Lord ,Srivaishnavism  has  started flowing from you  thro Pirattiar,Alwars and Acharyas  and Emperumanar was the Pradama Acharya  to systemise it.We reverentially address him as Loka Acharya. Srivaishnavam  cannot be marginalised  and no one dare marginalise it.Only Srivaishnavites have been marginalised my Lord.May I plead with you Lord to call a chakra a chakra and  give your verdict.Atleast then it would open the eyes of these srivaishnavites.Lord  I may be pardoned  if I have  exceeded my brief.

Lord Narayana: Hearing this case I had a mixed feeling.Sometimes I was worried , at times aghast with the facts,  many a time sad with the inner happenings and under currents ,cofused with the different arguments,.Yes I was extremely happy  to note inspite of  all  impediments  few good things were happening.I appreciate  the efforts taken by you three and  boldness of the  third person.One submission  really  attracted Me.It was " for any action  pause for a little see whether things are going in the desired direction and if not carry out midcourse correction .If it requires  more impetus  take action for it".This is required to be followed in all our activity more so on  "Emperumanar Darsanam" which is so dear and near to Me.Let me examine the various points putforth and I will  give MY verdict shortly.

Lord Narayana rises and all continue to stand  reverentially.
"Jaya Sriman Narayana" " Lakshmi SriNarayana","Jaya Jaya Sriman Narayana"  rents the air.

Jaya Sriman Narayana
Sri Mudaliyandan Swami shishya sampath
