Dear members, Please accept my heartfelt apologies for posting the mail regarding the 'supremacy of deities' by which I seem to have unknowingly offended some members of this mailing list. I deeply respect the principles of this mailing list. I apologise to the administrator of this list for violating them. I forgot about the principles of this list when I realised the Truth that God is one and only one. As a matter of fact I didn't have any intention of starting an argument on that matter by that post. I felt it could bring in some thought into the Universal Truth. Personally I think I didn't give any impression in that post in the lines of arguing supremacy. I was actually only questioning the argument about Supremacy itself. If I didn't make my point clear and had offended the members, again I feel sorry. Again the example of "expressing absence of desire for the royal crown" Sri Parthasarathy had mentioned only goes along with what I had opined in the post. ie. when one has purest, unshakeable faith in his bosom for his Supreme Lord why should he even ponder over/ reassure/ think and compare with other deities? Why should he in other words express the obvious explicitly by say, eliciting instances of his Lord establishing Supremacy over other deities. Is that the only way one can praise the Glories of one's Lord. One can, I strongly believe, meditate upon the glories of his Lord and crave for his pAdAra vindham without diminishing the glories of other deities. I sincerely believe so. adiyArkku adiyEn, chandrasekaran.
