Dear All
Adiyen have one more doubt in our nithya Aradhana kramam..
As we know that Vishnu is Alankara priyar and Siva is Abisheka Priyar, but
if you look into the nithya Aradhana kramam, we will be offering snAna
Asanam to Him, why its so?
Also I do heard that Lord Krishna during His vibhavam, never take bath,
iDaychiar  took bath only on Karthigyil Karthigy and that too one year they
took bath for Head only and next year they will have the rest of the body,
even this ritual or kuti Kannan will never do..
With all this any reasons for nithya neeRattam?

Thanks for your reply..
