"................of non vedic and purely of tamil origin, these are closer to most of tamils (except tambrams i think) and an attempt to sanskritize them by importing brahmin priests and abolishing animal sacrifices has been, a gradual process, of gentrification.
murugan, a tamil god is already completely agama-ized. hopefully the tamil village deities maintain their exclusivity and authenticity, and retain their poosaris.
thanks mr. kunjuppu. for a long time i was expecting some inputs in this regard. some more inputs please, regarding the indigenous, non-aryan-mixed, non-brahmin-mixed, non-sanskritized, pre-gentrification, pristine tamilian faith system that originated and existed in tamil nadu, of the tamilians, for the tamilians and by the tamilians, prior to being devoured by the non-tamilian faith systems.
perhaps we can start a separate thread for an elaborate discussion on the subject.
