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. Narayana. Dasan ramesh 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.
