And he related the incident from the life of Ramanuja: While walking on a road there was a heavy downpour. Someone from a Shiva temple called Ramanuja to come inside for shelter from the rain. Ramanuja refused saying that just as a chaste woman would not go to another man, he would not step into a Shiva temple.
And I heard another crazy narration like this from the life of Sri rAmAnujAchArya, once he had no other choice but to walk in front of the shiva / rudra temple, he immediately went to take a dip in river (nadee snAnaM) and performed the mahA praAschitta kUshmAnda hOma to get rid of 'ashoucha' as he has the sin of passing in front of smashANavAsi shiva's abode :-) But I really doubt Adi shesha avatAra Sri rAmAnujaachArya was such a narrow minded Achaarya!!
Anyway as a matter of fact, I myself seen in some Iyengar's house chamaka part (shaMcha me ) will not be recited during udaka shanti pArAyaNa though it is a part of udaka shanti mantra :-) Very funny indeed.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
