Dear Sri Ranganatha PrEmis :

Srimathi Manjula Sriram's offer of 
Srama dhAnam to create the Videotape 
and make copies available to Fellow BhakthAs 
is a very good idea for raising some funds
for the construction of the Sri RanganathA 
Temple . As far as I can see ,there should not be 
any problem in recording a personal videotape,
since I have seen a few people record such tapes of
public events at the Pittsburgh Temple .
By copy of this note , I request the participants
at this meeting and our host to let us know 
if they see any problems in such a recording . 

This kaimkaryam has two important aspects :

(1) . Such a tape would record these informative sessions 
for the benefit of those , who could not be there .
Incidentally , there  will be a proceedings of the conference ,
which will be co-sponsored by the temple and possibly
funded by TT DevasthAnam . I have been asked to 
put that proceedings together . This tape would be useful
for me in that context as well . 

(2) If people  wishing  to contribute a small
donation to Sri RanganathA or Sri VenkatEsvara temple
in this context , it is all the more better. We wil
have to leave the option to those , who wish to acquire
this tape for their instructional benefit and send 
a small amount ( ~10$ ) over and above the postage 
and cost of the Video .

By copy of this note , I am requesting comments from
the general list and partciularly from Dr.Narender Reddy 
about not violating any temple rules .

Please copy me on your e-mail to Srimathi Manjula Sriram.
Thanks .
