Re: [Hamam soap contains Thulasi :-(]

Thanks to Sri M.S. Hari & Sri Raja Krishnaswamy
for sharing their views.

I thought about it and it seems like Thulasi, thiruman, yagyopaveetham,  dharbham,
even archa-vigraham-to-be of perumal etc get 
their sanctity _ONLY AFTER_appropriate abhimantranam/avahanam  etc are performed as per vedic/agama shastram.
If that is true, I apologise for suggesting Sri vaishanavas to stop using Hamam & other similar "ayurvedic" bathing soaps 
that contain thulasi.

Is it just sentiments if vaishnava-s if they happen to notice such potentially sacred items as above being inapproriately used ?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

J. Venkatanathan
