The Status Report on the AZHWARS and the 108 CD ROM PROJECT

From: Sadagopan (
Date: Mon Apr 10 2000 - 08:27:28 PDT

Dear BhakthAs:

I would like to brief you on the latest developments 
relatd to the two kaimkaryams:

Date of Start and expected Completion
With our Lord's grace ,this project will be 
initiated on Sri Raama Navami day ( April 12, 2000)
at Bangalore , SriperumbhUthUr and here . It will 
take us three to six months to finish this project
and get CD ROM copies available for the AasthikAs.
The thridhaNdam kaimkaryam will be completed in 
a months' time and the CD ROM development will
take a little longer.

We have two more days left to complete the fund 
raising efforts , if at all possible .

The number of Pledges and the amounts
We have now 33 pledges to the tune of $3,500
against the need of $5,500 . Among the pledges ,
$561 have been received directly by me sofar. $825 is
being sent directly to India for use against 
the developmental expenses there . 

Thus we have or will be receving $1,386
funds out of the $3,500 pledged so far . May I request
all the aasthikAs , who have pledged the remaining
$ 2114 to send the checks either to myself or to Dr.M.A.Alwar 
at our addresses listed below at your earliest convenience ?

The Current Gap in Funds

We still need $2,000 for the Thridhandam Kaimkaryam 
and the AzhwArs/108 Dhivya dEsam projects . It is my 
fondest hope that 20 BhakthAs will come forward and
help out with their pledges prior to Sri Raama Navami
celebrations on Wednesday , April 12 .Please
contribute whatever you can.Some of you have pledged
51, 100, 108 , 200 and 250 dollars .

An Appeal prior to Sri Raama Navami

Only 5 out of the 25 Prabhnadhams have been
spoken for so far. It would be ideal to have the
remaining 7 AzhwArs  AzhwArs and 20 Prabhandhams
covered .Please indicate your choices for inclusion
in the sponsor section.If you prefer, I will be
happy to provide the links, since in the final 
anaysis, we wish to have every one of the AzhwArs and
