SrI:
SrimathE rAmAnujaya Namah:
Dearest Srivaishnavas,

Last Dec 17th, we had celebrated Srimad Azhagiyasingar's Thirunakshathram 
(and the Thirunakshathrams of Thirumangai AzhwAr and ThiruppANAzhwAr) at the 
residence of Sri KaNNan and Smt Mithra KaNNan. Though belated, adiyEn wants 
to share the event with Bhagawathas across the globe.

1. The event started off at 11.30 a.m, with Bhagavath ArAdhanam for 
saaLagraama PerumAL and Sri Lakshmi Nrusimhan vigraha mUrthy (both yELLa 
paNNufied -brought- by Sriman Hari) followed by AchArya pAdhukA ArAdhanam. 
The ArAdhanam, performed by Sri Hari in great detail ended at 1.30 p.m with 
saaRRumuRai, followed by thadhIyArAdhanai.

We recited ThiruppaLLiyezhucchi, ThirupPAvai (being the month of Maargazhi), 
Adaikkalappatthu, SudharsanAshtakam and KaamasikAshtakam.

2. Sri Hari spoke as usual in his inimitable electrifying style, on 
ThiruppAvai- Vedham anaitthukkum Vitthu (seed of all Vedas). It was 
excellent is a gross understatement.

3. Smt Vijyalakshmi Hari (Sri Hari's own compostion on Srimad Azhagiya 
singar in sanskrit), Smt Geetha Sridharan (Sri Sridhar and Sri Anand's 
composition in Tamil on Srimad Azhagiyasingar), Smt Bharati Murali, her 
mother, Smt Vidya Sudharsan, Smt Mithra KaNNan, Smt Rama Madhusudhanan, Chi 
keshavan, Sri Sudharsan Parthasarathy sang divine songs on Sriya: Pathi 
Sriman Narayanan. adiyEn also sang two PAsurams from Thirumangai AzhwAr's 
Periya Thirumozhi, being Thirumangai mannan's TN (Kaarthigai Kritthigai Dec 
10th).

4. Sow. Kanchana Sridhar danced very gracefully for three ThiruppAvai 
pAsurams (ThoomaNI, Orutthi and MalE) and Chi Ram (son of sri KaNNan) played 
mridha~ngam)

5. Children recited Swamy dseikan sthOthrams as part of OronRu thaanE 
amaiyAdhO thittam, organised by sri Vijaykumar.

6. adiyEn had to speak (as Smt Praveena, who was supposed to speak could not 
due to unforeseen circumstances) on "num pANan and num Kaliyan" being Dec 10 
and Dec 11 Thirunakshathrams of ThirumangaiAzhwAr and ThiruppANAzhwAr 
respectively. I am sure Smt Praveena would have done justice to the topic.

The event ended with a divine grand recitataion of Sri VishNu sahasranamam 
and mangaLArathi.
