Sri:

Sriman Madhavakannan Swamin,

Thank you very much for your superb, Anubhavam-filled translation of 
Tirumangai Azhwar's Pasurams. Ashtabhujashtakan has deep connections 
to the Ashtakshara Mantram. In particular, he reinforces 
Mahavishvasam-an extremely important Anga of Prapatti and echoes the 
message of the Charma Shloka Vakyam "Ma shucha". The reference to 
Nityasooris eulogizing Him through Vedic chants is a special one 
since it relates to the VishNu Sooktam salutation "Tad VishNO Paramam 
Padam Sadaa Pashyanti Soorayaha". As always, the reference to 
the Lord of Seven Hills in the second verse is most moving and 
pleasing to read about from a personal standpoint. I can never have 
enough of reading and enjoying the Mahima of Lord Srinivasa

Kamapya Navadhim VandE KaruNa VaruNaalayam 
Vrisha Shaila Tatasthanaam Swayam Vyaktim Upagatam.

Namo Narayana,

Muralidhar Rangaswamy
