Brahmasri Samavedam Shanmukha Sarma's discourse on the unity among diversity factor, taking Lord Siva's family as example, attracted the devotees. Mentioning the names of the various reptiles, birds and mammals that are used as vehicles for Siva's family, Sarma said that they cannot get along well with each other. Yet they all lived in peace because of their devotion to Lord Siva. Even in Lord Vishnu's family, the story is the same, he said. It is ingrained in Indian culture for all castes and religions to be united, despite differences, he said.
