On Thevu Matrariyen

Dear Mr. Dileepan,

I am sorry that the construction of my sentence had given room for a mistaken
impression of what I was trying to explain.

I was just referring to the discussion between you and Mr Badri on the
subject of 'Thevu Matrariyen' being deemed blasphemous IF interpreted
literally. I did not mean to say either yourself or  Mr Badri or anyone else
in our group held such a view. 

All of us, I believe,  are agreed that IF ( there is a big IF there) IF
anyone were to hold such a view THEN ( there is a THEN also), THEN, it would
not be correct. I have explained how and why it would not be correct, how the
Lord would not feel jealous of being sidelined in preference to His own
Bhakta ( Acharya) and how such an incorrect  interpretation could  be
construed as an ' ingeneous attempt at creating a rift between Bhagavaan and
Bhaagavata'.

As for ulterior motive, I do not suspect either you or Mr Badri or anyone
else in our group, but the same cannot be said of those who might happen to
hold a wrongful interpretation of the words 'Thevu Matrariyen".

I hope I have made myself clear.
