Namaskaram, I would like to know if there is any reason for doing the
alnkaram of sri padmavathi thayar as sri durga or as sri annapoorni and also
i am wondering if a new cult or group is in formation. The newsletter i just
recieved from jackson ms. temple  "amarvani" has a picture of sri
venkateswaraWITHFOUR ARMS POSING AS  SRI NATARAJA. ONE RIGHT HAND IS HOLDING
UDUKKAI AND TRISHULAM.,THE LEFT HAND IS HOLDING A DHANUS AND ONE RIGHT AND
ONE LEFT HAND ARE HOLDING THE FLUTE IN SRI KRISHNA POTURE.THERE IS A HALF
MOON ON THE HEAD OF THE KREETAM OF SRI VENKATESHWARA.AND A SNAKE AROUND THE
NECK. It looks rediculous. All of us expect ourselves to be broad minded but
this is rediculing both saivism as well as vaishnavism.  kanaka
