The purpose of starting the thread is, The Vadyars are sitting near the fire conterminously for hour together and how it affects their health, and asking for suggestions so that they can over come and avoid extra flesh, the molecules of hydrogen, generated in them and equalize them, It only suggested the remedies the person should undertake to keep fit.
I wish to point out one thing here, a prohith, who visits our house for performing sradham for my father said, the Bokthas will not take oil bath at our house, rather they will bath in their home and come straight away to my house. I asked him, if any death goes on the way what will you do? You should sit to take meals with Madi. He refused in 11th hour, and said, I can see other Vadyar. I have no way and accepted!
He said he will arrange for a Brahmachari, to sit in Vishnu Elai., for which I am to pay Rs100 etc. OK I said.
On sradham day, all the bhokthas and Vadyar arrived at 9 A.M started at 9.30, No oil bath taken in my house, they just came and sat near the agni.
The vadyars Cell phone rang!! It was a call from a rich man's house!, His father died last evening and Vadyar assured them that he will be at 12 Noon in their house! to perform the last rites, and he should go to the decessed house along with bokthas after they finish the meals!!
OK, now he didn't bring any brahmachari with him for Vishnu Elai, he said as he himself a bachelor, he will take the food, and collect the assured Rs100/.
All the three took their meals that too in a hurry as it was delayed by 30 mts, some of the manthras skipped, omitted and forgotten., and they ran to their bikes and hurried to the house where they are to perform the last rites.
Will any of our Brahmin will justify this and support vadyars like him?
Even I did. Thinking that it is their duty.
Who knows what will happen tomorrow?
Whether the Rules of sradham allows a Vadyar and bhokthas to attend a funneral after taking their meals?
Even in kanchi mutt I had seen, the priests and boys who chant manthras before Agni, leave the premises and take Sambar Vadai in the nearby hotel.
Whom should we blame or how should we support?
You can say one in hundred will be like that and don't judge that all the Vadyars are like that.
One rotten fruit makes the lot corrupt and unless it is taken seriously the rituals will bend for money, and the richer man can do anything as he wish and poor Brahmans will follow the rituals as a slave!!
The thread was started with an aim to help the priests who are genuine and need some advices as they don't know how to keep their body fit and healthy.
