God plays tricks too ?
Sri Bhagavan shows great humour at times:
He read Upamanya Bhakta Vilas which contains a passage where Arunachalesvara is said to have robbed Tirujnana Sambandar and his group of followers of all their possessions by His bhuta ganas disguised as dacoits. Sri Bhagavan remarked: “Siva Himself was waylaid in Tiruvudal Utsava and He practised the same trick on His devotees. Can it be so?”
