Dear BhakthAs:

Two weeks ago , Sri U.Ve. Velukkudi Krishnan
Swamy blessed us with an UpanyAsam on Srimath
RaamAyaNa Tani SlOkam commentary by 
Swamy Periya VaacchAn PILLai.Even at short notice ,
many bhakthAs participated in this tele-upanyAsam
from Chennai .It was 6 AM at Chennai and
Sri VeLukkudi Swamy put aside the parishramams 
of that early morning hour and spoke to us for
nearly two hours over the Tele-bridge.
The second UpanyAsam in this series is scheduled 
for tomorrow evening.We are indeed fortunate.

Sriman Velukkudi KrishNan Swamy needs no introduction to
the aasthika Sri VaishNavaa community . He travels
tirelessly around India and abroad (Singapore most 
recently )to spread the sweet and enduring messages of 
our dear AzhwArs and AchAryALs , which are our cherished 
Kula dhanmas . He gave up his thriving 
career as C.P.A to carry on the great kaimkaryam
of his revered father , Parama padha Vaasi 
Sri U.Ve.Velukkudi VaradAcchAr Swamy .
 
The chaste Tamil used by Sri VeLukkudi
KrishNan Swamy  in his UpanyAsams with rich
content is a true delight to the ear and mind.

Srimans Venkatesh Elayavalli and Mani VaradarAjan
have taken great pains to organize this upanyAsam series.
Our Thanks are to them .

Sri Venkatesh Elayavalli has asked me to write
a few words on the last UpanyAsam for the list. 
Inview of the great help that Sri Elayavalli 
has given to me on many kaimkaryams , adiyEn 
can only say yes to his request . 

adiyEn will send in a quick summary of what 
adiyEn remembers from this UpanyAsam
this evening .

Daasan , V.SatakOpan
