Sri Ranganatha Paduka on Sri Jayanthi

Dear Bhagavathas,

According to Sri Ranganatha Paduka (July 2000 Issue, pages 4-5),  Sri
Pancharathra Vaiganasa, Munithraya Sri Jayanthi falls on Wednesday, the 28th
of August.  Even though many panchankams have indicated Janmashtami on
Tuesday, the 27th of August, Srirangam Srimad Andavan Periashramam has
clarified that it should be celebrated only on the 28th due to the following
reason:

In the Munithraya Sampradayam it is important to observe Sri Jayanthi on
Janmashtami.  Since on Tuesday Sapthami veda extends up to 10.24 naazhigai,
Janmashtami cannot be observed.   Wednesday is therefore the proper day to
celebrate Sri Jayanthi, regardless of location.

This message should not be construed as a rebuttal of any position taken by
other bhagavathas or institutions.

Vaashaka Dhoshaka Kshandavyahaa.
Adiyen Srimad Andavan Thiruvadi.
