Swami Emperumanar Yali vahana purappadu 2022

Before you start reading this post – the debate on whether they are mythological or did exist is always on ! – though lots of Scientific explanations are available, some tend to disbelieve. 

Paleontologists are like detectives who examine the evidence that extinct animals left behind. Those clues to what dinosaurs were like are found in fossils—the ancient remains of an organism, such as teeth, bone, or shell—or evidence of animal activity, such as footprints and trackways.
A new trailer for Jurassic World: Dominion teases an epic conclusion to the dinosaur saga. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the final chapter of the Jurassic World trilogy  brings back some original Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, appearing together for the first time since the first film in 1993. Jurassic World Dominion is set after after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and dinosaurs have overrun the world. The prehistoric beasts live uneasily beside humans and there is chaos all around.
The latest chapter picks up where Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom left off, which had the genetically-engineered dinosaurs breaking free and roaming the world, creating an eco-clash of The Modern Age with the Prehistoric Age. Trailers for Jurassic World Dominion thus far have shown dinosaurs settling in all over the globe, spilling out into society in both natural and unnatural ways, including a T-Rex invading a drive-in theater, raptors roaming a populated city, a mososaurus attacking a fishing boat, and general chaos for humans living with dinosaurs in the new Neo-Jurassic Age.
Jurassic Park released in 1993 was a Science fiction directed by Steven Spielberg -    the first film in the Jurassic Park original trilogy, and was based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Michael Crichton and a screenplay written by Crichton and David Koepp. The film was set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, located off Central America's Pacific Coast near Costa Rica. There, wealthy businessman John Hammond and a team of genetic scientists  created a wildlife park of de-extinct dinosaurs. When industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park's power facilities and security precautions, a small group of visitors and Hammond's grandchildren struggle to survive and escape the perilous island.
Moving away from movies, abundant fossil bones, teeth, trackways, and other hard evidence have revealed that Earth was the domain of the dinosaurs for at least 230 million years. But so far, not a single trace of dinosaur remains has been found in rocks younger than about 66 million years. At that point, as the Cretaceous period yielded to the Paleogene, it seems that all nonavian dinosaurs suddenly ceased to exist. Along with them went fearsome marine reptiles such as the mosasaurs, ichthyosaurs, and plesiosaurs, as well as all the flying reptiles known as pterosaurs. Ancient forests seem to have flamed out across much of the planet. And while some mammals, birds, small reptiles, fish, and amphibians survived, diversity among the remaining life-forms dropped precipitously. In total, this mass extinction event claimed three quarters of life on Earth. In 1842, the English naturalist Sir Richard Owen coined the term Dinosauria, derived from the Greek deinos, meaning “fearfully great,” and sauros, meaning “lizard.” .. .. ..the debate about the existence of dinosaurs continues !!
Ever heard of an animal known as “Yali”  ?  ~ திருவல்லிக்கேணியில் - யானை, குதிரை, சேஷ, ஹம்ச, சிம்ஹ, கருட என உயிரின வாஹனங்களுண்டு.   யாளி வாஹனம் சற்றே  வித்தியாசமானது.  

இந்த படம் தென்னாசார்ய தலைமை பீடமான "நாங்குநேரி ~ வானமாமலை - ஸ்ரீவரமங்கலநகரில்'  உள்ள மண்டபத்தில் உள்ள சிற்பம்.  இது யாளி எனப்படும் தொன்ம உயிரினம்.   இதற்கு, சிங்கமுகமும், யானையின் துதிக்கையும் உண்டு.  இது   சிங்கத்தையும் யானையையும் விட மிகவும் வலிமையானது என நம்பப்படுகிறது. பொதுவாக யாளி யானையைத் தாக்குவது போன்று உள்ளதைச் சிற்பங்களில் காணலாம்.  பழைமையான கோயில் சிற்பங்களில் காணப்படும் இத்தகைய மிருகங்கள், ஒருவேளை டைனோசர்கள் போலவே நிஜத்திலும் இருந்திருக்கலாம்!
மேற்கத்திய சிந்தனையில், இந்த பூமியில் சில கோடி ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு டைனோசர் போன்ற ராட்சத விலங்குகள் வாழ்ந்ததாக அறிவியல் ஆய்வுகள் உறுதிபடுத்துகின்றன.   அது போன்று இந்திய துணைக்கண்டத்தின் தென்பகுதியில் இப்படி ஒரு பிரமாண்ட விலங்கின் பதிவுகள் காணப்படுகின்றன. 
Today  evening [day 4 : 29.4.222] num Acharyar Swami Ramanujar  had purappadu on Yali  vahanam.  Yali is a mythical creature seen in sculptures of many temples, often seen on pillars.  It looks like a Lion headed strong animal with the trunk of elephant and often portrayed as having in its control an elephant, thus exhibiting its power.  Yali is a motif in Indian art,  widely used in south Indian sculpture.
காரேய் கருணை இராமானுசா  ~~   Thiruvarangathu Amuthanar glorifies Swami Emperumanaar comparing him to the rain clouds.  Clouds are magnanimous, fetching water to land (without anyone asking); they do not distinguish between recipients; they are very generous just like our Acharyar Ramanujar is.
Here are some photos of our Greatest Acharyar Emperumanar  on Yali vahanam purappadu at Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam.
