All troubles in this world start only when attempts are made to wean away people from their native religion and to convert them to a new faith, by holding out the temptation that people can attain salvation only if they embraced that new faith. This is more than what any sensible person can swallow. Since every religion speaks of God, to ask a person to give up the religion in which he is born is tantamount to asking him to give up God and is a sin against God.
It is the duty of every person to follow the religion of his ancestors.

kahanam: I think small Vigrahaas of Maha Periyava Likeness are available at Sri Matham Bookstall near Maha Periyava Brindavanam. People interested in Abishekam etc. can buy them and benefit. I personally have Maha Periyava photos only for prayer.

Kanchi Periva: Dear Sri ramani1948 - by design, panchayatana puja can be carried along with you and performed anywhere you go. In case you cannot do that, there are options to have it done by your wife or son also. Women may not perform abhishekam to Lingam & Salagramam
