Not Samadhi but Brindavana

In Mantralaya, people/ devotees come to visit Sri Raghavendra Swamy Brindavana. Don't call it Samadhi. It is not after death. Sri Raghavendra Swamy entered into closure while he was alive. Don't spoil the dignity of place for not being aware of sanctity. Change the name immediately please.
