SrimathE RanganAyaki samEtha SriranganAthAya Nama:
Srimath VenkatanATAryam vandhE VedAntha Desikam 
Srimath Azhagiya Singar CharaNamE SaraNam 

Dear BhakthAs :

On this sacred day, when Sri RanganAyaki and
Her dear consort , Sri RanganAthan bless us
with their sErthi Sevai at Srirangam and on
this day when AchArya RaamAnujA performed 
his SaraNAgathi before them and presented 
the three gadhya rathnams to them , it is adiyEn's 
bhAgyam to restart the full coverage of Swamy Desikan's
Prabhandhams and Chillarai Rahasyams .

adiyEn started this kaimkaryam during Sep-Oct,2000 
time frame . There were some concerns about "sadhasyam "
and "Rahasyam " aspects of writing about ChillaRai
rahasyams of Swamy Desikan in public . adiyEn thought
further about continuing with this planned
kaimkaryam . Meanwhile , other kaimkaryams such as
the coverage of GuNa rathna KOsam deflected my attention .
On this Panguni Uttaram day , it became clear that 
adiyEn should continue this kaimkaryam and house
these postings at a special site that would be
of particular interest to those , who wish to delve 
deeper into the esoteric aspects of our SamprahdAyam.

After adiyEn browsed the excellent home pages created
by Sri Madabhushi Sarangarajan Hari of Simhapuri and 
after grasping the message of U.Ve. Sri AnanthanarasimhAchAr
Swamy there on the need for popularization of Sawmy Desikan's 
Sri Sookthis , it became clear to me that adiyEn of
SiRiya Jn~Anam should still press ahead with the kaimkaryam
of coverage of the Chillarai Rahasyams and house them 
in the VisishtAdvaita Net maintained by Sri M.S.Hari.
It will be  a natural home for ChillaRai Rahasyams .
Along with the excellent Tutorials on Sri Vaishnavam 
and other Swamy Desikan's Sri Sookthis assembled there,
Swamy Desikan's ChillaRai Rahasyams will have the appropriate
home . AdiyEn requests those , who are interested in 
these special granthams to access the VisitAdvaithA net

adiyEn will seek the blessings of the Dhivya Dampathis of 
Srirangam, BhagavathAs and asmath AchAryan , HH Sri NaarAyana
YathIndhra MahA Desikan of AhObila Matam in this effort .

adiEn recognizes that the ChillaRai Rahasyams are KaalakshEpa
Granthams are to be learnt under the sacred feet of a SadAchAryan
and hence will not elaborate on the deeper rahsyArthams
associated with these granthams .AdiyEn will provide 
the essence of these Sri Kosams and highlight the key messages
given to us by the great DayALu , Swamy Desikan for our UjjIvanam.

As mentioned earlier , some of the Chillarai rahasyams 
( PrAdhana sathakam , Rahasya SikhAmaNi , Anjali Vaibhavam
and sections of Parama Padha SOpAnam ) have already been 
presented in the SaraNAgathy Journal by adiyEn . Adaikkala
Patthu and VaishNava Dinasari of Desika Prabhnadham have 
been presented earlier in Bhakthi and Malolan lists.

AdiyEn's baalya AchAryan , Sri U.Ve .V.N. Srirama DesikAchArya
Swamy of ThiruviNnagar is the great scholar , who released
the commentaries on the Chillarai Rahsyams first .His monographs
are known for their clarity and precision . The illustrious
prakrutham PoundarIkapuram Andavan, who observed his 
SathAbhishEkam last week , has taken great pains to release 
these monographs to the discerning bhakthAs . adiyEn's 
daNdavath poraNAmams to these great AchArya PurushAs .
adiyEn will be following closely the monographs of 
U.Ve.Sri Sriraama DesikAchAr Swamy of ThiruviNNagar 
in preparing these postings.
