Dear Bakthi group members, namo narayana. adiyen's pranAmams. adiyen would like to share a small thought which occured to my mind while reading sri.Madhavakkannan's posting Thiruvaymozhi glorifying ThiruppEr perumaL. Sri.Krishna premi beautifully describes the stanza "perEn enru en nenju niRaiyap puhundhan" in one of his upanyasam. Since nammalvar says "perEn enru" it is obvious that he has asked the ThiruppEr perumaL to "perndhu pO" and perumaL is not listening to his request and decides to stay over (adam!).The question arises is it not strange to ask perumaL to get out of his heart while every baktha is keen to visualise HIM and hold HIM in baktha's heart. For this sri premi quotes from bagavatham and says that the gopis of vrindavan are unable to concentrate in their house hold work since krishna is sitting in their hearts and they say that keeping krishna for a moment is okay but if he stays permanently it is miserable since they couldn't do their work properly. Since the gopis are to maintain the house take care of the cattle and kids their husbands it is understandable that they are requesting krishna to get out of their heart but why our nammazhvar should ask perumaL to get out of his heart when he doesn't have any such work like gopis. Sri Premi jokingly says that if ThiuppEr perumaL stays in his heart permanently then how to accomodate other perumaL who are waiting in queue to get their quota of songs (mangaLa sAsanam). Probably this is the reason for asking ThiruppEr perumaL to get out of heart. adiyen has no knowledge on the tattavas behind these pasurams so please take it ligthtly and just enjoy. Thanks and regards. adiyen dasan, R.venkatarAgavan, Bahrain.
