My humble pranams to all bhakti-list members

My name is : Madabhushi Srivatsan Raman    Age:23
Srivatsan being my name.
I hail from Madras but settled in Baroda, Gujarat.
Presently I am a graduate student at the University of
Missouri.
Honestly, I am not very knowledgeable about our Great
Vaishnava Tradition. But I am extremely proud to be a
Vaishnava and Lord Srinivasa's bhakta.
Right from childhood I have learnt lot of slokas
sanskrit and tamil out of personal interest. But I
could not get an opportunity to expand my
understanding of the tenets of Vaishnavism.
When I saw this site on the web and how beautifully it
expounded the philosophies of Vaishnavism, I was
enthralled.
I take great pride at being in the midst of such
scholars of Vaishnavism in this e-group.
I was also happy to note that somebody had atlast
given an explanation on the origin of "Madabhushi" to
which I belong.
I belong to Bharadwaja gothram.
CAN SOME BODY LET ME KNOW AS TO WHO IS THE
"KULA-DEIVAM" OF MADABHUSHI (BHARADWAJAM). 
No body in my household has a clear idea about it.

In the end I thank the moderator of this e-group for
permitting my entry into this group and I am sure it
will be a great learning experience for enthusiatic
young vaishnavites like me.

Thank you
Sincerely

Srivatsan M. Raman
