Dear Sri Madhavakkannan:

Thanks ever so much for your soulful outpourings on the life
and works of our PoorvachAryAs . Today is indeed a blessed day
to reflect on the  many treasures left behind for all of us by
Swamy Alavandhar .Your postings on Swamy Desikan's
kula Dhanams in the context of the Thuppul MaNi ManTapam
are succint devotion-laden SamarpaNams . Thank you .

It is my pleasure to pledge $100 for the Thuppul MaNi Mantapam as
a starter .

For the past five days , I have been handicapped by the lack of
access to my computer due to SirCam virus infection from a message
froim India . As a result , I can not read my mail or respond to them .
I went to another computer to send this note .I have to catch up with a lot
of mail once my computer gets the antivirus protection .

Swamy AlavandhAr inspired Sawmy Desikan in his construction
of the Magnificent SthOthra Granthams . SthOthra Rathnam paved
the way for the extraordinary SthOthrams of Swamy Desikan , which
is our sustenance .

On this scared day of Swamy AalavandhAr's
Thirunakshathram , adiyEn wishes to  share with all
ther BhakthAs the start of another major Kaimakaryam
that would make Sawmy Desikan immensely happy .
This kaimkaryam would be for his dear HemAbhja Valli
SamEtha Sri DevanAtha PerumAL . Few months back ,
the Mutthangi SamarpaNam for the Moolavar was completed
in time for the winter of the year 2000 .As a continuation of
that Kaaimakryam , GodhA PriyA Committee of Chennai
has commenced the RathnAngi Kaimakryam for the DaivanAyaka PerumAL
of Thiruvahindrapuram . The RathnAngi will be made by the same
goldsmith , who constructed the RathnAngi for Lord Oppiliappan
two to three years ago .

It is my prayer to Swamy Deikan on our behalf to bless us get
started and reach the Kaimkarya PrApthi stage over the coming

adiyEn will come back on details about how all of us can participate
in this VisEsha Kaimkaryam for the Lord of ThiruvahIndhrapuram .
For now , adiyEn would welcome your expression of interest on
joining in this Kaimakryam that would be dear to all of our poorvAchAryAs
in general and Swamy Desikan in particular  . We will also seek the blessings
of all current AchAryAs adorning the AchArya Peetam .

Swamy AlavandhAr ThiruvadigaLE SaraNam ,
Sri HemAbhja Valli SamEtha Sri Daiva Naayaka ParabrahmaNe nama:
