Hello all
Need a clarification.
Am an Iyer and may kula Deivam is Thirupathi Perumal. I always get confused should i do a Thirunamam in the forehead (bcos my Kula Deivam is perumal) or do a Voboothi pattai bcos am an Iyer and not Iyengar.
With due respect to both just wanted to clarify the Thathpariyams of Thirunamam vs Viboothi pattai.
 
I have heard the following in a kalashebam.
In adwaida , everything is maya , this world does not exist , it is only a maya. To come out of this maya you should cut the thoughts. To signify this the Network of thoughts are cut using Vibhuthi. Vibhuthi helps to cut the thought and it is applied in a direction that is perpendicular to the flow of blood

According to Vishitadwaidam , everything is Narayanan, to channelise the thought Srichuranam ( yellow/ red mark) is drawn towards upper plane. It tells that our thoughts should be towards GOD.

That explains the significance of vibuthi and Thirunamam. My real dount being an Iyer and having perumal as KulaDeivam should i practice vibuthi or thirunamam when i sevichify perumal at his temple

I am an Iyer. Kula Deivam is Sundarraja perumal . My grandfather, father and uncles all had Vibuthi. That is what I follow.
 
I am an Iyer. My father and grandfather used to have Gopi on the forehead (small 'U' shaped mark). Kindly enlighten whether I can continue to have Gopi instead of Vibhuthi as other Iyers do.
