>Dear BhakthAs:
>Thanks very much for your  patience  during  the  past few weeks,
>when the release of the new issues was not possible due to number
>of other pressing matters that  required  the  attention  of  the
>Board  Members.  Sri Anbil  Swamy,  Srimans  Sampath  Rengarajan,
>Venkatesh   Elayavalli   and  adiyEn  sincerely  appreciate  your
>continued interest in the SaraNAgathi Journal. We have heard from
>some of you about the relevance  of our effort and its usefulness
>to You. Please share your views with us to serve you better.
>Few timely items that took time away  from  our  well-intentioned
>efforts to release the SaraNAgathi issues earlier are:
>(1) The enormous effort that went into  the design and production
>of the first of its kind CD ROM  on  AchArya  RAmunujA's Life and
>Sri Sookthis. With the AchAryA's blessings,  the project has been
>completed and the CD ROM is ready for release on  Swami Desikan's
>Thirunakshathram day (PurattAsi SravaNam).  This kaimkaryam  fits
>well  with  the  central  objectives  of  Swami  Desika   Darsana
>sathsangham, whose electronic journal is " SaraNAgathi ".
>(2) The time needed by V.S to help the creators of  the  Audio CD
>ROM version of Swamy Deasikan's SthOthra MaalA. The 28 SthOthrams
>have been recorded by Sri.Nadadur Madhavan of Sri RAmAnuja Kootam
>of Virginia with sampradhAya  Suddham  and  high  degree of audio
>fidelity. There are 6 volumes of audio CD ROM cassettes  recorded
>by 2 ardent Desika BhakthAs from New Jersey. The first 3  volumes
>of these Sri Sookthis were earlier released in April 1999 and the
>remaining 3 including the Achyutha sathakam in Praakrith language
>are being released on September 19, 1999 at Sri RanganAthA temple
>at Pomona, NJ. Please  contact any one of us regarding details on
>these interactive, audio and  Multimedia  cassettes  on  the  Sri
>Sookthis and lives of AchArya RaamAnujA and Swami Sri Desikan.
>(3) Sri Sampath Rengarajan has been  extremely  tied up with fund
>raising efforts  for the  Once-in-a-lifetime  Kaimkaryam  of  Sri
>KomaLavalli SamEtha Sri AarAvamudhan's  SamprOkshaNam  at  Thiruk
>kudanthai. He raised a substantive amount of  funds  from  fellow
>BhagavathAs from all over the world for this  SamprOkshaNam.  The
>most satisfying part is the allocation of the majority  of  these
>funds for a SvarNa kavacham for Sri AarAvamudhan. Sri  Rengarajan
>was blessed to take part in this MahA Uthsavam at Thirukkudanthai
>and he used the occasion to visit number of Divya desams. He just
>returned from his trip.
>Let me stop here and state that we are very happy to restart this
>Kaimkaryam of publication of  SaraNAgathi issues  and  seek  your
>inputs, recommendations to serve you better in the months ahead.
