Namo NaarAyaNa 
SrimathE RaamAnujAya nama:

Dear Srimans Ananad and Hari:

I am delighted to welcome your valued inputs 
in the spirit of kaimkaryam of sharing the beautiful
insights of Sri PerukkAraNai Swamy built upon 
the foundations of PoorvAchAryAs in general and 
Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy in particular.

Please continue to share your views to clarify, amplify 
the brief references to complex subjects written
under time pressure and also space pressure.

adiyEn had made a promise to some of the supporters of
the ThiruppAvai monograph release project (back in 
October,2000)that adiyEn will translate excerpts from this
GodhA SudhAsvAdham for the benefit of BhakthAs,
whose mother tongue is not Tamil as well as 
for those , who speak Tamil , but can not read
Tamil as a result of growing outside Tamizh Naadu.
That is the reasoning behind my humble postings.
Although adiyEn strives to write in a simple ,
easy-to-understand manner , there are times , the depth
of meanings behind the commentaries will require  
brief references to lofty doctrines unique to our
siddhAntham. adiyEn requests your bearing with me.
The subject is too deep and my understanding is meager.
ANDAL will accept this samarpaNam done with humility.

Hopefully , these postings will also be useful 
to those BhakthAs , who wish to quench their 
thirst for the nectar of ANDAL's Sri Sookthis
not only in Marghazhi month but also throughout
the year and in all days of their lives on this earth
(Rangam/LeelA VibhUthi) of our Dhivya dampathis
of Srirangam . Hopefully, these postings celebrating
Bhagaavth-AchArya -Bhaagavatha Bhakthi will induce
those , who have not carried out their Prapatthi at 
the sacred feet of a sadAchAryan to hasten to complete 
this "life-giving" anushtAnam and have their loads 
lightened .
