  • Hi
    obviously the story starts when the chola dropped govindarajar of
    thillai in the sea.?

    from the trailer we can see a vaishanavaite priest who resists the
    soldiers when they try to open a door of a temple with battering rams.
    the god inside the temple is a reclining vishnu of mammoth
    the priest has a thenkalai naamam and also sangu sakram tatooed on
    the biceps.
    the vishnu statue is then taken on a horse drawn vehicle, then
    balanced between two boats, the priest is tied to it and dropped into
    the sea.

    the rest of the trailer is about germ warfare with biotechnologists
    hoveing in masks.
    so there comes kirumi kanda cholan.
    i guess our group was one of the earliest to decipher the story . we
    did it months back.

  • Hi,

    may I know which king of chozha did the below thing?
    (dropping vishnu in sea)??

    Thanks & Rgds.,

  • Mr.Venketesh;
    A rather elimentary question. Which sea did they drop poor Perumal into? Any
    chance they dropped Perumal into Kaveri instead of an ocean, as isn't it
    more near than an ocean?
  • Hi

    to chidambaram the sea is closer than kaveri
    how i wish some sattelite mapping can be done in the killai area to
    find if the original govindarajar rests in the sea bed.
    it would be the archeological find of the century.

  • Hi

    place names around pichavaram could be analysed for some link.

    also the sea seems glorified in that area. it was in cudalore that
    appar came floating ona granite block.
    near chidambaram the original govindarajar may be residing.

  • Hi
    listened to the songs of dasavatharam in radio mirchi
    the story is about the kirumi kanda solan

    there is one song with the pallaandu in the back ground
    kallendru paarthaal kadavul therivathillai
    kadavul endru paarththaal kalladi therivathillai

    some words address the king
    "you may be rajarajan
    but rangarajan is better than you"

    also kamal has a charecter most presumably called vishnudasan
    the song goes rajya lakshmi and srinivasan are the parents of vishnu
    ( he has punned on the real names of hir real life parents)

    also he talks about god sinking in the sea.

  • That is awesome deciphering...
  • I listened to the songs. THe song you mentioned is the one of the songs thats good in that
    movie. Good lyrics too. Typical hindi flavor in some of the songs. 'Mukunda' has the flavor of
    'konjum mainakkale' from kandukonden kandukonen. Why a hindi music director for this

    too much hype, oothikkama irukkanum. Because Kamal has bad luck for all his experiments
    and unique movies.
  • Hi
    has somebody read 'thirucitrambalam'
    i think its by jagat sirpiyan and is about this incident

    can somebody give us the story line for that novel.

  • I saw the song Kallai Mattum Kandal song, yesterday from Dasavatharam,
    wow... i had goosebumps when the camera moves over the Gopuram of a
    temple. Though the graphics in the scene is obvious, it is still good.
    When I bought the cd and listened to the songs, disappointingly none
    of the other songs are good. Hope the movie makes a good
  • Hi all,

    I just finished reveiwing Dasavatharam songs - they were very mediocre.
    maybe the visuals will help them. As of now, its pretty dull stuff.
  • Hi

    Again a small question...

    It is said that Ramanuja recovers the Vishnu idol from
    the sea and re-installs them at Tirupathi...

    So is current Tirupathi Venkatesa idol is the same

    Thanks & Rgds.,

  • As per the biographies of Ramanujar, Vaishnavas were not persecuted by
    the chola king in the manner we we all assume today. The king, a devout
    saivite, wanted all the vaishnavas to accept that Siva was above
    Narayana and say it loudly. One of his ministers, a vaishnavite, to
    avoid the harassement to simple folks, told the king to make Ramanuja
    accept Siva's supremacy, as he was their most visible and prominent
    guru. When the king's messengers came to take Ramanuja, his disciples,
    fearing he may be harmed, impersonated him and went with the soldiers.
    The strong willed disciples not only refused to accept what the king
    wanted, but gave a cheeky reply, and both lost their eyes, and one died
    soon after. Ramanuja was persuaded by his devotees to leave chola
    territory and he eventually settled in Melkote; he returned to Srirangam
    only after the king's death.

    The king was not against vishnu or vaisnavas; there is no contradiction
    in his making endowments to Srirangam and other temples.

    I still firmly believe that we must not jump into hasty conclusions
    disregarding tradition and faith.

  • Lot of videos related to Dasavatharam Movie
  • Hi
    i think there are sufficient records of the gingee naiks that
    govindarajar was re installed in chidambaram during their rule in

    also ramanuja i think is after this incident of removal of

    i think saivism and vaishnavism must have almost functioned as two
    distinc religions along with saktha matham.
    they must have united during the jain antagonism, but after their
    defeat must have pounced on each other.
    the saktha matham of kapalikas literally vanished. we have references
    in sivakamiyin sabatham on their harassment by the pallavas.

    i would really like to knoe when the earliest reference to
    govindarajar in thillai occurs. was this the collosal statue or a
    smaller idol which must have been a symbolic removal.
    temples around chidambaram have small shrines of vishnu like
    thiruvengadu. nothing like this scale.

    perhaps the original govindarajar was a similar sub shrine and the
    gingee naiks made it big on re installing??

  • I just saw Kalaignar's note about the first scene. He mentions that
    the Chola king asked Ramanjuar to not tell "Narayana" and asked him to
    say "Shiva"

    If this incident never happened, then I don't know who advised Kamal
    about it and how he took it. But I am sure everybody will think the
    movie is correct, but we can wait and see once the movie is released
    and revisit the debates.
  • Well, that was a really confusing statement from MK. Actually according
    to the Srivaishnavite Guruparampara which talks about the stories of
    all the Acharyas of Srivaishnavism starting from Nathamuni until
    Manavalamamuni, it is not Ramanuja who was asked by the Chola King to
    recite Siva's name as supreme.

    The story goes thus: (As taken from the book "Guruparampara Prabhavam")

    ..... Once when Ramanuja was away from his mutt, at Kaveri for his
    bath, the soldiers of the Chola King came to his mutt and informed that
    the King has ordained Ramanuja to court. Knowing well about the
    Saivaite inclinations of the Chola King, Koorathazhwan, the foremost
    disciple of Ramanuja, was much worried about the outcome of the
    meeting. He thought it was his duty to protect his Acharya and hence he
    silently adorned the ascetic robes of Ramanuja and along with Periya
    Nambi, the Acharya of Ramanuja, went to the court of the Chola King in
    the disguise of Ramanuja. He also instructed other disciples of
    Ramanuja to carry the normal robes of a "samsari" and asked them to
    prevail upon Ramanuja to escape with that robes. Though Ramanuja did
    not accept this at the beginning, knowing well that Koorathazhwan has
    already left in disguise, and also giving in to the pressure by his
    other sishyas, prayed Sri Ranganatha for the well being of his Acharya
    (Periya Nambi) and his Sishya (Koorathazhwan), left for Melkote in
    present day Karnataka.

    Koorthazhwan stood before the King, in disguise. However, there was a
    minister by name "Naalooran" in King's court, who was once supposed to
    have been a sishya of Koorthazhwan. He immediately identified him
    (traditional accounts vary from calling this act as treachery to utmost
    concern about his own acharya being prosecuted - truth yet to be
    deciphered) as not Ramanuja. However the King ordained Koorathazhwan to
    write a declaration accepting Siva as the Supreme God. The wording that
    Koorathazhwan was to have declared was "sivAth paratharam nAsthi".
    Meaning there is None Greater than Siva. Of course Koorathazhwan did
    write it. But added another line to it. "drONamasthi thatha param".
    Meaning, However "drONam" is larger than 'sivam". In older days the
    words sivam and drONam were used as the measurements. drONam was larger
    in measurement than sivam.

    On hearing this sarcasm the Chola King was outraged and asked the eyes
    of Koorathazhwan to plucked along with that of Periya Nambi. However
    Koorthazhwan said "why does anyone else need to pluck my eyes. I will
    do t myself as I have seen a sinner through these eyes" and plucks it
    himself. In this process Periya Nambi dies due to the pain.

    This is how the account goes. So I suspect a complete screw-up in the
    screen play, if whatever MK said in the function is true. However we
    cannot conclude until the movie is out and we see it for ourselves.
  • Mr.Venkatesh;
    That is a truly wonderful account of whats written in the Prabhavam. I too
    heard this from a family friend who is a staunch (not fanatic) Vaishnavite.
    By chance we both were viewing the Dasavathaaram trailer. Upon viewing the
    scene where Kamal is tied to Perumal and dropped into the sea he told me
    this version.
    This person im talking about also has the tatoo (or is it burned into the
    skin? Can somebody confirm this?) on his bicep. They are not allowed to have
    a moustache/beard too. But Kamal has both in that particular scene.
    I think its pretty hard to stick with the legend in the movie. Maybe Kamal
    just took the cusp and formed a creative story based on that. The movie
    should clear this up.
  • Mr Dinakaran,

    Let me answer your questions.

    1. Regarding the Tatoo:
    Yes I saw that too. It is correct. The Srivaishnavites will bear the
    marks of Sangu on their Left Shoulder and Chakra on their Right
    shoulder. This signifies that, person has completely surrendered to
    Vishnu and has accepted Him as his Sole-Saviour.

    To reflect a little on this, this act of getting the Sangu-Chakram
    marks embossed is called "samAsrayaNam". The equivalent of this is
    the "thAli" that the women wears from their husband. Here the husband
    is supposed to be the Sole Saviour of the women and she is supposed
    to only rely on her husband for everything. Philosophically, in
    Srivaishnavism, it is considered that all jeevAthmAs are female in
    Nature and the only Male is the Supreme Being, which in this case is
    Vishnu. So when one gets the "samAshrayaNam" done, he is supposed to
    be faithful only to Vishnu and not to anyone else.

    This is why you see that staunch Srivaishnavites do not go to any
    Siva temple. Rest assured it is not fanaticism, but utmost loyalty to
    Vishnu considered as their husband. Like any chaste woman would treat
    any other men (other than her husband) with respect, but will never
    look forward to them for anything, the Srivaishnavites as a practice,
    go and pray only at the Vishnu Temples, though inherently the respect
    is there for all gods, be it Siva or Muruga or Ganapathi.

    2. Beard and Moustache:

    Together, both are allowed but none in isolation. I honestly do not
    know what is the significance of this. But that is the practice that
    I know. I cant have a moustache alone. However if one grows them
    together, it is okay. Probably some Brahminical Ritualistic
    significance! Any other learned member can throw some light on this.

    However the buzz is that Kamal had contact some Vaishnavite scholars
    in Triplicane and other places. So if he still has taken such a scene
    like King asking Ramanuja instead of Koorathazhwan to recite the
    verses, it is nothing but a GLOBAL SCREW-UP!! :-)
  • Hi
    so many venkatesh's in the group now.

    i have seen the tatooing( or branding) instruments used on ramanuja
    himself(???) in mathuranthakam temple. they were discovered in a
    secret chamber in the last decade

    rahul , kamal also had a thenkalai naamam( straight lined like a
    trident rather than the U of vadakalai)

    but one doubt??
    didnt vadakalai originate after ramanuja??? then how does he do this
    say some 50 years prior?

    can sps clarify the timelines of

    a. ramanuja
    b. the chitrakootam incident of govindarajar and the sea dropping.

    isnt there a prevalent story that ramanuja recovered it and placed
    it in kizh tirupathi?????

  • Mr Venketesh

    The origin of the Vadakalai sect is a perennial debate going on
    between both the sects of Srivaishnavism. The thenkalais claim that
    vadakalai as a distinct sect originated, not only after Ramanuja, but
    only after Manavala Mamunigal, the last acharya in the Guruparampara.
    The vadakalais claim that thenkaalai originated from Pillai
    Lokacharya, the predecessor of Manavala Mamunigal.

    This debate will never end as both are not ready to accept the
    other's views. Let us leave it at that. However, if one enters into a
    philosophical debate, I had recently written a small writeup
    regarding this kalai differences in one of the personal mails on that
    debate. If members are willing, I can share it here. Ofcourse, it is
    subject to a debate.

    Ramanuja was born in the year 1017 AD and he lived for 120 years. He
    attained Paramapadham in the year 1137 AD. These are the timelines
    which all the historians accept unopposed.

    Regarding the Chitrakoodam incident, this has no link to the
    Koorathazhwan episode. This is said to have happened later, though
    within the times of Ramanuja. And you are right in saying that
    Ramanuja retrived the Moolavar of Chitrakoodam from the sea and got
    it installed in Kizh Thirupathi. I am not pretty sure, how he was
    reinstalled back at Chitrakoodam. I only read somewhere (may be in
    this group itself) that He was reinstated during the times of Nayak
    kings much against the wishes of the Dikshitars of Chitrakoodam.

    Coming to the movie, I presume that Kamal is neither acting as
    Ramanuja nor Koorathazhwan. He is just the priest of the Temple of
    Govindarajar, a normal character, who finds no mention in the
  • > This debate will never end as both are not ready to accept the

    its not the philosphy but just if the signs of thenkalai were
    prevalent during the date of the story line.

    just like the rajagopurams of chidambaram are shown in the song , but
    its doubtful if thillai had a rajagopuram at that time.

    > Coming to the movie, I presume that Kamal is neither acting as
    > Ramanuja nor Koorathazhwan.

    the song mentions his name as vishnudasan son of rajya lakshmi and
    srinivasan( incidentally the names of his real parents.

  • Mr Venketesh,

    To answer straight, yes, the Thenkalai signs "were" prevalent and
    they were the only ones prevalent. I am not trying to be biased here
    but let me present just one proof here. I have already discussed the
    logic behind Thenkalais only being prevalent during those times in
    the article that I said I have written. I would like to present it
    only if some one is interested. Please do not think that I am trying
    to build-up here. Actually I wrote that article during one of the
    debates on the Vadakalai and Thenkalai issues. That is the reason, I
    am asking for the permission to write about it here.

    Now for the example/proof about the Thenkalai namam. Again I will
    take refuge under the Srivaishnava Kulapathi Nammazhwar. In his
    Thiruvaimozhi, he sings about the style of the namam. He says.....

    netRiyuL ninRu ennai AaLum niRai malarp pAdhangaL sooDi......

    Note the words, "niRai malarp pAdhangaL". I am sure you would all
    have noticed at some point of time that it is only the Thenkalai
    namam which depicted as the two legs of Vishnu over the Lotus flower
    with Lakshmi embedded between the legs. This just is one example.
    Incidentally this is the only reference to any namam of any sort in
    all the 4000 Divya Prabhandams.
  • >I just saw Kalaignar's note about the first scene. He
    mentions that
    >the Chola king asked Ramanjuar to not tell "Narayana"
    >and asked him to

    During that function of audio release Kalaignar was
    telling that "one has to be firm in his stand in the
    life whatever may come" referring to what Ramanujar
    refused to say siva?. Kamal was also nodding his head
    to his statement.

    I just could not hide my laughs at these two

    1) Kalaignar including his party gave up their stand
    for separate Dravida nadu to stand in the election in
    the 50s. Their stand on "politics" is well known

    2)Kamal's stand on the term of "marriage" changes

    It is easier to preach than follow
  • I don't want to comment on Kalaignar much.

    Kamal, now yes, he tries to innovte, bring new
    ideas/thoughts into movies. He is by no means a mature
    intellectual, only seems to try often times in half
    baked ways.

    In our hero worshipping culture many people think this
    guy is more than he is, that is more of their fault
    than his that is all.
  • Absolutely true...

    Thillai incident doesn’t have any connection with that of Kurathazvan incident... as the later incident took place some where near sri rangam, and very much before the Thillai incident
    And lord Govindarajar was established in kizh tirupathi...By this time Sri.Ramanujar was very old... Some where nearing his 100s.. and it was one of shiyas or nambis who went along with the Govindarajar into the sea.. Thirupathi as a whole used to be domicile for all our lords from down south, weather its muslim invasion or internal problems.... be it Lord Sri Ranganatha.. or Govindharajar...
    some body was asking about astaksharam.. the same refers to the name of the lord "om namo narayanaya"... this the one mentioned in the dasavatharam song...
    and this is manthra which sri ramanujar gave into the whole world going on the top of the temple announcing the same to the whole world.. The way to get moksha even if he goes to hell...

    Scholars pls do correct me, if I am wrong..

    and a wonderfull article on Sri.Ramanujar

  • yeehh... and now!! he has taken the most expensive movie ever made in India..
    There is a same hype as it was there for Hey Ram..
    Hope this does well in the market at lest for the producer's gain..
  • Hi malathi

    if kamal can arrange some connectivity between a 12th century start
    and a 21st century finish it would be really good.
    but then this story too went to court remember. kamal was accused of

  • Hi
    the way kamal ties his long hair in the trailor is so similar to his
    appearance in "Hey ram"-
    hey ram by the way is a lift off from a chapter in khuswant singhs
    delhi( in my opinion one of the best historical novels ever written)

  • Mr.Venketesh (vinjamoor_venketesh, this is getting crazy :) )
    You writings are very informative. Have you written in this group before? If
    so im sorry, i must have missed the mails. Do keep this going.
    If these are your first mails then i presume on seeing this topic the
    Vaishnavite in you just came out screaming (no offence, just a joke).
    This happens when my father and my family friend (the one i was talking
    about earlier) start having a chat about thier visit to the meenakshi
    temple. This family friend (im delibrately refraining from naming him)
    doesn't go into the Sivan sannidhi. My father, being a Saivite (not fanatic,
    we visit Srirangam too), starts the arguement and it keeps continuing.
    For an arguement and topic which has been going on for more than 10
    centuries i think it remains incredibly fresh.

    I just wanted to convey this, this is also a pretty sensitive topic hence i
    request our members to tread VERY carefully and refrain from hurting
    another's feelings. In the name of democracy and openess of society we seem
    to take too much of a liberty. Sometimes an iron hand is required so i
    request our moderators to keep a watch on these threads and mercilessy
    delete any mails which might seem offensive.
  • I remember reading a story on this, don't know where,
    possibly Kalki but could be someone else too.

    A Shaivite and Vaishavite are arguing on which is
    better, naamam or thiruneeru. The vaishavite wants to
    take down al lthe horizontal bricks from the house
    they are in in defence of the argument. The shaivite
    does the opposite and removes vertical. Finally there
    is no house left.

    This is a century old argument, and ridiculous
    argument in my opinion. Like the Annamarcharya kirtan
    rendered in MSS's melodious voice Entha maatramuna
    evvaaru thalachina antha mathrame neevu - whatever
    ways devotees seek you, you are that.
  • Rahul, I can stand him quite well :) I respect his
    acting skills tremendously, i think he has great
    talent, and he seems to be a kind hearted humanitarian
    too who discouraged hero worship and ecourages social

    He is not some intellectual trying to teach us ways to
    live. All his views on athiesm, marriage etc are his
    own views, not something people should look upto and
    learn from. He has developed a bloated ego and seems
    to air these views like they are hugely important - as
    thinking, sensible people we shold learn to ignore,
    that is all.
  • Right u r Malathi.
    " Entha maatramuna
    evvaaru thalachina antha
    mathrame neevu "

    This is the base line of our Esdteemed member writer
    Dhivakar's 'Thirumalai Thirudan'

  • Very informative discussions and quite interesting.

    The marking of sanku and chakkaram...I think they call it also as 'deekshai'.. am i right?

    Its good to know that reason for people not going to Siva temple just because of the
    loyalty and nothing else. Is this applicable to people only who take deeksha or all the
    vaishnavites? why I am asking this is,people who dont take deekshai also dont go to siva
    temple. This is not generalized as I know iyengars generously participating in siva
    worship. But there are other kind of people too.... recently a group of iyengars went on a
    trip to Badri but they didnt go to Kedar. I really appreciated their devotion but at the same
    time wondering how can they do it? As discussed, its upto the individual preference and
    should not be questions.So lets leave it there.

    In PS Kalki says that saivam and vaishnavam was not like the current day practice, where a
    family will be totally saivam or vaishnavam..A person can be a strong saivite, and his
    brother can be a staunch viashnavite.. But later days it changed. I think its true.

    We know a family where one is a saivite and his co-brother was a vaishnavite. when we
    built a temple in our area in 1993, when the saivite donated the whole shrine of Siva, just
    for competition his co-brother said he will build the entire vishnu shrine. this competition
    helped the area vasis ultimately :)

    Also, there is an understanding that in brahmins iyers are saivites and iyengars are
    vaishnavites. Iyengars being vaishnavites is accepted. But iyers being saivites is not.
    Kanchi maha periyava clarified that people who follow sanakara bagavad padal (those who
    are considered to be saivites) are not saivites, but smarthas.

    smartha means those who accept advaitam and in advaitam there is no supremacy of one
    god over other. so there is no question of following siva or vishnu and consider all the
    gods are ONE.

    But the current day understanding is quite different.

    Coming back to Dasavatharam, given the hype I am very much eager to watch this. It
    should not sothapify as any other kamal movie which comes with a hype.
  • Hi Sathish

    veera saivism is still prevalent in parts of karnataka.
    here in tamilnadu i think thirupati settled the issue for shavaites.
    no more 'shiva temple only' shaivaites here.

    i know muslims, buddhists and jains visiting tirupathi. its just
    when ranganathar and govindarajar seek his solace why not mortals.
  • -Hi
    in THIRUSITRAMBALAM novel does jagatsirpiyan say why the chola king
    threw govindarajar into the sea.

  • If we really believe in being open minded we should
    not call iyengars participating in shiva worship as
    'generosity' in any way.

    The correlation of iyers/iyengars to
    shaivites/vaishavities is tied down to casteism - like
    Venkat said Lingayats in Karnataka are veera shaivas,
    there are veera vaishavaas among people in Andhra too,
    they are not iyers or iyengars.

    To me just thinking we have to have all these borders
    and restrictions and 'respect' those who believe them
    is itself our unwillingness to acknoweldge that it is
    wrong to divide God in this way.

    I am sorry for sounding strong on the subject.

    Ref Appar VI Thirumurai - Thirupurambiyam


    Ref V Thirumurai Thiruppovanur ::


    There are several quotes..

    The Deiteis Siva - Vishnu - Brahma were coexisted and co-worshipped
    in all the siva temples as could be seen from Thavaram hymns..

    Sekkizhar hymned PERIYAPURANAM during Anabaya Kulothunga II period..
    and was revered by all..

    This should have prompted various IDAICHERUGALs in Literatures etc.,
    to caste shadow on the Kings / Saints at later point of time.

    We have already clarified that CHITRAKUDAM was a place of worship
    using Paadagam (Painted Narayan image on clothes) which got
    detoriated over a period of time and that was submerged in the Sea
    with reverence during Kulothunga period ..

    When a Ramar Bronze was found ( recently )about 100 years back in a
    village named as THILLAI VILAGAM (near Thiruvarur ) (Pls ref
    Archieves again) it was postulated whether Thillai vilagam -
    Chitrakoodam was associated with Lord Rama (of this Thillai vilagam -
    near Thiruvarur)!
