Dear Fellow Ranganatha Bhakthas:We have been
preparing for a few days now to get into the mood 
of celebrating this most sacred  day. Sri Rangaswamy"s 
posting On Acharya RamanujA's moving Gadyams has 
brilliantly captured the spirit of the Gadhyam and brought us
closer to  the Divya Dampathis. Sri Rengarajan took us on a 
wonderful trip to Srirangam earlier . With the valued contributions 
of other Bhakthas, we are having a  marvelous celebration this year.

Few months ago, I composed my own saranagathi by creating a
Garland form the Nama Kusumaas from Acharyas & Vedic words.
Please forgive me for unintended mistakes in this Sanskrit composition.  
I am privelged to share with you this personal  Sri Ranganatha Saranagathi
 on this day of enormous significance to all the Bhakthas of Kasturi Rangan.
