Re: Agenda for December Sri Vaishnava Conference (Denver, CO)

From: Krishna Kalale (kkalale_at_qualcomm.com)
Date: Sat Dec 13 1997 - 09:50:58 PST

Dear Bhagawatas,

I would like to speak on Tondaradi podi alwar for 15-20 minutes from
10-10.20 Am on Sunday during the tirunakshatram of Tondaradi podi alwar.  I
know that this would be a repetition since this subject will be dealt with
in a prior session.  I thought that since it was His tirunakshatram, we
could spend few minutes reminiscing on his divya charitam with aspects
which might not be covered in the short duration of the prior session on
alwars.

Please confirm if this is OK.

someone can also talk on Sri Perianambi.

Thanks,

Krishna Priya ,  (wife of Krishna Kalale)
