There is a song in Kannada,”If Lord Virupaksha is our Father,
Vishalakshi(one with broad vision) is our Mother.” Lord Virupaksha’s
wife Parvathi is called Vishalakshi. Lord Virupaksha or Shiva may
err in taking proper decision because of His deformed sight but if
we pray with devotion to Mother Vishalakshi, She may set right the
things with her clear and broad vision.
2)There is a quote that if God decides to punish anybody, He makes
him/her go mad. But according to me, all those who are mad are not

or circumstances in life or emotional torture of severe kind incurred by
the loved ones may shake the mental stability or break one’s heart and
make him/her mentally sick. God is kind and He does not punish or
interfere in the affairs of humanbeings.

following spiritualism. I adore them. But my favourite epic hero is Lord
