The ‘Deva Prasnam’(ritual to gauge the will of the deity) at Sree Padmanabha Swamy temple here, being conducted to ascertain the divine will through astrology, has found that the huge riches found in the shrine's vaults should not be moved out or alienated.
Taking the huge treasures out of the temple complex would lead to an ominous fallout and even affect the sanctity of the shrine itself, Madhur Ranga Bhat, who heads the panel of astrologers, told reporters here this evening.
The exercise also cautioned against opening one of the yet to be examined vaults as it is below the sanctum sanctorum, where the idol of Lord Vishnu in reclining posture stands, Bhat said.
The 'deva prasnam' found there had been serious lapses in the conduct of rituals and customs of the temple, which could affect even the nation, the astrologer said.
These aspects would be further examined on the concluding day of the ritual on Wednesday and the panel would summarise the findings and prescribe ‘pariharakriyas’ (resolutions), the rituals to be performed to overcome the shortcomings, he said. The ritual was conducted at the ‘natakasala’ building at the eastern street of the temple.
