divinity of Sri Andal ~ Hindu darma meeting at Vani Mahal

There is divinity everywhere… still some are more closely associated with divinity…

கூட்டிலிருந்து கிளியெப்போதும் கோவிந்தா கோவிந்தாவென்றழைக்கும்*
ஊட்டுக்கொடாது செறுப்பனாகில் உலகளந்தானென்றுயரக் கூவும்*
நாட்டிற்றலைப்பழியெய்தி உங்கள் நன்மையழிந்து தலையிடாதே*
சூட்டுயர் மாடங்கள் சூழ்ந்து தோன்றும் துவராபதிக்கென்னையுய்த்திடுமின்.

~ Andal the quintessential devotee draws reference to the caged parrot which keeps calling the names of Lord as ‘Govindha, Govinda’ ~ when it is not fed and starved as a punishment, it shouts more as ‘Lord who measured the Earth’…… Andal pleads that she be taken to Dwaraka, the city that has  high spired domes as She should be taken to the place of Lord Krishna, lest there will be words of abuse from the World.

In Sri Vaishna sampradhayam one need not be too learned nor do great deeds, it would simply suffice, if we are attached to God, surrender at his feet and do kainkaryam to Emperuman and to His devotees.

Our Azhwars and Acaryas taught us great bakthi culture intermingled with divine hymns and quality way of life.  It is our primary duty to uphold our darma by religiously following our sampradhayam and doing service to Lord. 

In an unsavoury event, a person earning living by writing cine songs made wrong references to our Goda Piratti Sri Andal and Srivaishnavaites anguished by those remarks, expect that the person who made them apologise before Andal at Sri Villiputhur. 

Today at Vani  Mahal, T Nagar – in a meeting organized by ‘long live Hindu dharma’  spearheaded by Sri U Ve Anantha Padmanabachar Swami; Sri  U. Ve Devarajan Swami (Sri UVe Dr MA Venkatakrishnan Swami could not attend as he was recently bereaved) -  many scholars spoke on Hindu darma and the way forward in preserving our sampradhayam – those included  film Director Sri Visu; Sri S Ve. Sekhar, Sri TR Ramesh, President, Hindu Worshippers Association; Sri Andal Chockalingam, Sri Devanathan of Win TV and many others -  hundreds of people attended this meeting.

Here are some photos taken during the meeting at Vani Mahal, T Nagar, Madras 17.

Sri Andal Thiruvadigale saranam.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
