    Dear Chithra,

    Laugh me. oh no... I think it is ingenious to wear socks to keep the hot tharai off of your mind and concentrate only on the Almighty. I do it here too, cause the tharai here is always cold...It is amazing to see the fact that everything our forefathers did had a scientific explanaiton to it.

    Love,
    Jothi.

    Annu's pradakshinam incident in Maangadu is very interesting - who knows, the very old man could have been Paramacharya himself...

    Vidya, please do post Paramacharyal quotes on namaskaram and Adi Shankara.

    Ragini's mom's idea for Pooja room is very inspiring.

    C - please go ahead with your points on Vedanta. Your perspective is very much appreciated and very useful.

    -Gayathri.

    Dear Chith,
    Now a days your post is interesting by itself but the discussions that follow keep me enchanted. I liked raginis idea of deities being in the centre of the pooja room . and am awed by anuus experience in Mangaadu. Knowledge shared is indeed knowledge gained multifold. Looking forward to next thursday.
    Regards,
    Meenu

    Dear Chitra,

    Even though a bit late it was worth it. Honestly I had no clue as to why we did pradakshinams,but use to do it since elders insisted. After reading your descriptions it makes a lot of sense to me. Any action done with some understanding and devotion does give satisfactory results. Thanks Chitra for taking the trouble to explain the 'why do we' factors in our culture which makes it unique. Please do not think twice about V since I benefit a lot reading your posts.
    Love,

    Dear Radha,
    Thankyou for the dutiful feed back.
    We enjoy doing the action, if we understand why we do it.
    I will surely continue V even if just a handful of you read it and benefit by it !
    Love,
    Chithra.
