Why do we keep food for crows?
Once a devotee asked Kanchi #Paramacharya #Mahaswamigal why do we keep food for crows during mahalayam? Are our #Ancestors taking forms of crows? Why do they come as this low bird? Why not a high standard bird?
With a gentle smile Mahaswamigal answered, we call crow kaka in Tamil. Do we address any other creature by its sound? Do we call cat meow? Because a parrot says kiki, do we call it kiki? The crow is called by its sound that makes it special.
Ka means kaapathu or protect me in Tamil. so when you keep food for a crow and say "kaa kaa", you are asking your ancestors to protect you!
You say a crow is lowly because it is freely available and it eats anything! But let me tell you a crow is beautiful. Why?
