Folks -:-)

Some quick thoughts:
		
	(1) The number of namams is twelve (dva-dasa) corresponding to the 
Lord's names we recite in "achamanam". This is what I learnt and not eleven as 
someone wrote. (Apologies, I am new to the group and slowly i get to know th 
names).

	(2) An interesting fact for some may be that during times of grief,only 
the Thiruman is worn without the Sri Churanam.


PS:

Who am I: I am a moderate Vaishnava wishing to learn more about the 
philosophical aspects of all religions, particularly our sect.
