Dear Friends

On this joyous occasion of New Year, i bring you
the blessings of H.H. Srimad Andhavan of Poundarikapuram
Asramam - Paravakotai Sri Gopala Mahadesikan swami.

H.H. had taken the initiative to edit and reprint
Swami Desikan's Chilarai Rahasyangal (that has been
out of print for more than a decade now). Two months
back i received a fund raising appeal for this
project, which i posted on the bhakti forum. In response
to this appeal many of you had come forward with generous
contribution and we were able to collect close to $1600
(much more than what we aimed for!). H.H. was overjoyed
on hearing this and has blessed us all with long life
and prosperity.

Once again, i thank you all for your donations and pray
to the Divya Dampathies that we been given such opportunity
for Bhagavat-Bagavatha kainkaryam more frequently. It is
indeed heartening to see the Bhakti list evolve into not
just a forum for discussions related to Sri Vaishnavism but
an active forum for taking action to keep our Samparadayam
alive both in India and abroad.



PS: H.H. has made arrangements to send the donors Akshadai
and photo of Sri Lakshmi Hayagriyan (Aradhana Murthy at 
the Desikar Sannidhi of the Asramam). They will also receive
a complementary copy of the book after publication.
