Dear bhaktas:

adiyEn's sincere thanks to those of you who have come forward
to participate in sponsoring sevais at the thirunakshatram of
prakriam swami srimad abhinava vageesha parakala desikan.
Since there are thadiyaradhanais for all 10 days (19 - 28 April),
and sudarshana/panchasookta homams for 3 days (19 - 21 April),
it will be great if we could have at least:

(a)  20 sponsors for annadaanam/thadhiyaradhanai
      [2 persons for each of the 10 days], and

(b)  30 sponsors for sudarshana/panchasookta homam
      [For any one, or all of the 3 days].

Presently we have about 8 homam, and 5 annadaanam sponsors.
They are gratefully acknowledged as:

Homam sponsors
------------------------
- Sri. Krishna Chakravartula (Chennai)
- Sri. B. Anantharaman (Australia)
- Sri. Suresh Srinivasamurthy (FL)
- Sri. Muralidhar Rangaswamy (MA)
- Sri. M.K. Shrinath (GA)
- Sri. K. Parthasarathy
- Sri  T.R. Govindarajan (NY)

- Sri. Rajeev Karamchedu (VA)
- Smt Jayalakshmi Hariprasad (TX)
- Sri. Srinath Chakravarty (TX)
- Sri. B.G. Satyan (CO)

We have until tomorrow (Thursday, 19 April) evening to pledge
additional sponsors - the response so far has been encouraging,
and bhaktas have expressed sentiments ranging from simple
curiosity all the way upto sincere happiness over the fact that
SVSS has provided a convenient conduit for performing such
kainkaryams to this ancient mutt.

Thanks to today's technology, and the use of telephone/internet,
it has (for the first time) become possible for parakalamutt
shishyas and abhimaanis to sponsor sevais at the AchAryan's
thirunakshatram, even thousands of miles away - just by a few
keystrokes and more importantly, the desire to contribute.

adiyEn wishes to once again, solicit your sincere involvement
in this kainkaryam in order to help meet the above-mentioned
targets.  Prakritam parakalaswami has expressed immense
happiness over the concern shown by well-wishers in reaching
out to the matham despite constraints of time and location. Jeer
has given personal assurance, that every contributor will be
duly recognized by the mutt authorities - and wishes to confer
blessings on people that have this spirit of service.
