Dear bhaktas:  It is neither common, nor expected of
AchAryas to personally respond to the requests by
shishyas/well-wishers - regarding matters such as delays
in sponsoring sevais during their own thirunakshatram!!

It is however, testimonly to the vatsalyam and humility
of prakritam Swami Srimad Abhinava vageesha parakala
desikan, that Jeer kindly agreed to allow 5 more days for
bhaktas to confirm their sponsorship of homams and
annadaanam (the original cut-off date being 15 April).

In a telephone conversation with AchAryan, my father
requested additional time solely in order to make it
possible for bhaktas who were abroad, or had been
otherwise unable to act by April 15 - to still participate
in such kainkaryams.  Jeer has graciously agreed to
accept confirmation from sponsors until the morning
of 20th. April (Friday, IST).

Bhaktas in the USA therefore, have until the evening
of 19th. April (Thursday) to pledge their contributions
to one of different sevais described in the URL (below)
[Sponsorship in Rupees is given at the bottom ]

Regardless of contribution MODE (creditcard, cheque,
or Indian Rupees), please email:
and provide your full name, address, gothram/nakshatram
information + the amount contributed and the particular
sevai you wish to sponsor.  This is necessary due to the
shortage of time - it is the only way in which we can
submit the list of participants to the Mysore matham by
Friday morning IST.  For payment information, see:

RUPEE Contributions by cheque/DD shall be made out to:
Sri Brahmatantra Prakala mutt, Mysore [All contributions
are exempted from the Income Tax deduction under Section
80-G of  India's I.T. act] and sent to: President and Secretary,
Sri. Brahmatantra Swatantra Parakala Mutt, Krishnavilasa Rd,
Devaraja mohalla, Mysore-570024.

Your devotion and support towards this ancient institution
named after Kaliyan - thirumangai Azhwar's iSTha-devatA
(Sri. parakaalan) is very much appreciated.  A few devotees
have already contributed towards the sponsorship of anna
daanam and 3-day homams, and our list of names/gotrams
will continue to be collected until this Thursday (19th. April)
evening, when they will be emailed to India.

If any questions please email Sri. Rajeev Karamchedu
( or Smt. Nagu Satyan
