Dear BhaktAs,

Some time ago Adiyen had the bhAgyam of meeting
a great Vishnava belonging to mAdhwA school.
He quoted a slokam which goes like this:

Sri Bhagavaanuvacha:
mlechcha dEShESuchouvApi chakrAnko yatra thishTathi
yojnAni taTha threeNI mamakshetram vasundharou.

Here PerumaAl has declared that even if it is a foreign
country and when everything is impure.. If there is any
chakranka (Saligramam) an area of three yojanAs around
it is considered as My Kshetram. 
I dont know the source for this slokam.I request dear
BhAgavathAs to educate/correct me.

SrimannArayana dAsaha
