Being loyal to HIS LORDSHIPS at all times is a srivaishnava’s unique specialty . He cannot permit violation of that virtue by encouraging any thoughts of submission to devatas / demigods .
An incident happened few hundred years back at srivaishnava capital Sri Rangam . Lord Namperumal was being carried in a grand procession .
JagathAcharyar Swamy Ramanuja and his disciples along with elders and the paraphernalia were leading the procession .
The sky suddenly turned dark which indicated some showers and as predicted it started raining .
The Lordships entered the premises of another temple dedicated to Sri Jambukeshwara another divinity .
Swamy Ramanuja and his disciples who had accompanied the procession , stopped away outside the premises in the rain unmindful of being drenched .
One disciple humbly asked Swamy Ramanuja ..
.. Holy Sire
When our LORD himself has entered the temple premises why should we wait in this pouring rain ?
instead of following our LORD ?
Swamy Ramanuja replied !
My child ………………………….
Remember LORD is our Emperor and we are his queens .
If Emperor wishes to meet his chosen, does it mean HIS chaste queen also imitate her LORD by resorting to others .
We are chaste queens of the LORD and must never interfere in LORDS order .
..and instead wait for HIS order ….
.in serving HIM and HIM ……… only…
Adiyen Ramanuja dasan ..
