[sv-rituals] Doubts for clarification

From: Srinivasa Raghavan (
Date: Sat Apr 27 2002 - 03:30:51 PDT

I have few doubts and grateful if the BhAgavathas will
help me clarify these:

I work in the Gulf and I use a shelf as my 'perumal
arai' which is at a height of 5 feet from the ground.
As a result, when I offer my prayer I sit on a chair.
Recenlty a friend of mine said, he saw, for the first
time, someone like me doing prayers sitting on a
chair. The reason why I sit on a chair instead of on a
'manai palakai' is I cannot see the perumals when I
sit on the floor. Is it in order to sit on a chair and
offer the prayers?

I have kept the pictures of my maternal and paternal
(late) grand parents in my perumal arai. Is it in
order to keep them in my perumal arai?

Is it alright for Srivaishnavas to recite navagraha
sthothrams at the fag-end of their prayer? 

Best regards,

M.S. Raghavan
