      There is some misunderstanding here.  Badri is the one
      who brought "dhEvu maRRaRiyEn" first, not I.  If I understood
      Badri right, he did not say "dhEvu maRRaRiyEn"  was blasphemous.
      What I think he said was, if Madhurakavi's "dhevu maRRaRiyEn"
      is intrepreted literally, it would mean there is no Sriman Narayana;
      that would amount to blasphamy on the part of the aazhvaar.
      I don't think Badri directly or indirectly indicated that
      "dhEvu maRRaRiyEn" was blasphemous.

>AN INGENIOUS ATTEMPT TO CREATE A RIFT BETWEEN BHAGAVAAN AND BHAGAVATA?!


      No Sri. Anbil Ramaswami, I respectfully submit to you,
      neither Badri nor Mani, nor any other member of prapatti
      have any ulterior motives.
