Dear Srimathi Usha :

Thanks very much for your note.
You have a lot to offer to this group from
the perspective of a practising artist/performer
and Bhakthai.

Therefore your observations/contributions 
would be most welcome to BhakthAs .
Please share with us hence your perspective and
anubhavams on Bhakthi NaivEdhanams to 
the Supreme Being , Sriman NaarAyaNan
thru Bharatham .

I will post a short article on aRayar Sevai today and 
request you to share with us the personal/professional
intrepretations of aRayar's anubhavam. I will focus
on the Paasurams of AzhwArs and attempt to link with
their Nava Rasa anubhavams of the Dhivya Dampathis. 

Looking forward to learn more ,

SrimathE NaarAyaNAya nama:
