Dear Perumal,

Adiyen’s favourite idols this Navaratri-Golu festival was this set, Sri Krishna and Andal. I do not know whether the divine radiance is due to the work of the artist who created them and the ones who painted them, or, the very fact that it is the radiant Krishna and Andal! 🙂

Dear Perumal,

Once adiyen had a darshan of You at a ‘Venkatachalapathy’ temple tucked away near the tea estates in a quiet corner of Conoor (near Ooty). The specific area where it is located is called ‘Chinna Thirupathi’. Though this was not a Sri Vaishnava temple, it was good to behold your sight nevertheless.

Dear Perumal,

One thing I like about travelling within the city sometimes is a sticker of You in the bus, or a picture of you behind a vehicle, or the beautiful thiruman symbol plastered on the front-side of an auto rickshaw, or the back-side of a truck! Sometimes when stuck in a jam, these images remind me that one can spend at least a few moments thinking about God.

Whether these vehicles owners care about driving safe or not, at least someone somewhere had a thought about You. Like this one for instance, truly reflecting what You are all about. Always, always concerned whether jivatmas like us would learn how to lead a life enriched with virtues.
