Sri Velukudi Swami's Upanyasam

From: Chandrasekaran Venkatraman (

Dear Bhagawathas,
   Those of you who listened to Sri Velukudi Swami's upanyasam
on the Nov 12th about Ramayana Tani Slokam might already know 
how anubhavam soaked it was. Sri Swami's upanyasam about 
"priyavAdhi bhUthAnAm sathyavAdhI cha rAghava: " SlOkam, was
thoroughly enjoyable.
   When Sri Swami touched the SlOkam of Sri Bhattar "aham mEy thvam 
mEy" and explained why namperumAL gives dharSanam in wet clothes, 
adiyEn's eyes watered. I know not why it happened. Whether it was
because I felt pity for the Lord for undergoing so much trouble for 
getting the jIvAs by His side, or because I pitied myself that so 
incapable I am in letting the Lord get me by His side, I can't 
discern. The Lord makes 'sathyam' in wet clothes (adiyEn can't 
tolerate this sight), having no other way of convincing the bhaddha 
jIvA that he belongs to Him and that he might do better if he 
realised that and endeavoured to reach His Feet. What a compassion!

   Narayana! Narayana!
