Sri Amudhan SamprOkshanam and ChAthur mAsya sankalpam - Part 16

	Due  to  bagawAn's  aruL adiyEn was given the thought
about "kainkarya sri", Sri Padma Veera ragavan  of Madras who
had rendered several keertthanais on Sri Oppiliappan and  Sri
BoomA  dEvi   thAyAr.  I  took  these  rare  keertthanis  and
requested her to render it in music as similar to the several
keertthanais on Sri   Oppiliappan.  She  said  with  all  her
utmost humility that, "It is  adiyEn's  parama  baAgyam  that
devareer  have  chosen  adiyEn.  adiyEn   will  receive  this
uttharavu (Order) through my sirasu  and  do the necessary as
quickly as possible. She  immediately also  sang  one  of the
keertthanis extempore and astonished me.

It was very thrilling  to see Sri nammAzhwAr's keertthanai is
finally coming out in music. She had also assigned two of her
students to study these  and  make  some  plans. adiyEn  will
undertake  the  entire  cost of  producing these casettes and
releasing these sometime  next year. The proceeds as intended
by adiyEn will be sent to support the madurAnthakam school of
vedam. By the way if you are all wondering as to who this Smt
Padma is,  She  is  none other than our own Sri V.Sadagopan's
only sister. (what else can I expect from her other than such
high degree  of humility ?).

	She has a group  of  students working for her in the
godhA priya committee.  They  sing  perumAL  pAsurams on all
AzhwAr thiru  nakshathrams.  They also assemble and practice
many times  and render music concerts on AzhwAr  pasurams in
various cities. There are a group of devoted youngsters  who
are desciples of Smt PadmA who are also  delivering casettes
on AzhwAr pasurams under the direction of Smt Padma. As  per
the discussion adiyEn had with her, Sri  Sadagopar  anthAthi
(100 pasurams by Sri Kamban) will be sung first and then the
42 keertthanis known as Sri nammAzhwAr pAmAmlai will be sung
in  those  cassettes.  adiyEn  is  also  intended  to  write
both on the keerthanais on Sri Oppiliappan and Sri nammAzwAr
later.
