Nice caption:PANNA NAGARSENKER VISITS FROM THE THE EAST COAST! So as you scroll down the first thing you see in the picture below the caption is Shiva (or Nagashankar) ensconced in the Pannaga or Vasuki the five-headed snake–atop the Iraivan gopuram. This piece of sculpture did come here fron the East or India.
It is only when you scroll further down you see that caption refers to a lady named Panna Nagasenker at the bottom of the picture. Now is that a coincidence or Siva or what?

For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
