If you did not feed on the sins of our ancestors to the temple, so opt for the doshas. 
 In many churches the Lord's womb only a few days a year of sunshine spread. Civapujai olipatuvatai of the sun would be. But day after day on the temple of the sun god porkatirkal devotees say that miracle unseen anywhere to go beyond some minutes.
