Adi AmmAvAsyA
Date: Thu Aug 05 1999 - 10:51:49 PDT

Dear BhAgavathAs,

As many of you may know, Solar eclipse will be seen in
India on the coming Aug 11 (next Wednesday). Also AmmavAsya
happens to coincide with that day. However both the SriRanga VAkya
and the Sri Nrisimha Priya magazine say that the AmmAvAsya tharpanam has
to be done only on the following day (Thursday) due to the presence of solar
eclipse on Wednesday. 

AdiyEn's question is that if we are not going to be seeing solar eclipse
here in the USA, can we perform the AmmAvAsya tharpanam on Aug 11,
