108 Divya Desam Project

Dear Members:
I am delighted to let you know that  the
book by Sri.T.P. Ramanujam with the 
photos / art renditions of 108 Divya Murthys 
arrived today by fast post  from Madras. With 
great anticipation, I took a quick look at the 
product of the commendable work. The printers have 
done as good a job under the circumstances. It is a 
pleasure to see all the Murthys (Some times Utsavars,
Some times Moolavars, Some times Calendar reproductions
and artists' renditions) in one place. I think the  availability of 
superior Technology and the enthusiasm of the members of the 
group is going to help us produce an outstanding 
CD ROM  (or two !). I am  reasonably confident about that.
We have already some beautiful color Photos.
There are ideas in the book (eg) Naimicharanyam, 
that is worth emulating. The Malayala Desa emperumans
are difficult to decipher.  We have a lot of work to do.
But with the blessings of Divya Dampathis , we will 
make progress. I will be sending Sri Dileepan the book 
by this  weekend . Some  negotiation with the Publishers
by Sri K.Srinivasan would be of help to use cove rthe gaps
in our collections. 

Anyway, it is a great  day today to have the Darsana Bhagyam of 
the  "Archa Murthys" of 108 Divya Desams.

The english version , I am told will be ready  soon.We have
what  we need for our project as reference material.
