  • Why to do shradham

    Dear All : The following posting appeared in
    a sister list . You mihgt be interested in
    the input by the moderator of this group

    Many times the question comes up about
    why should a Prapanna after his or her life on earth
    be the object of SrAddham ? They are already in
    Sri Vaikuntam due to the power of the UpAya
    anushtAnam (SaraNAgathy) .

    SrimAn Vaasu VaadhyAr of Chennai , the Moderator of
    the Vaidhikam group is presenting a refreshingly new
    approach to address this question .

    I thnak him for his courtesy in using his posting ,
    which would be of general interest .
