Date: Tue Dec 15 1998 - 06:44:56 PST

Dear BhAgavathAs :

Tomorrow is the birth of Margazhi Maasam that 
is sacred to our sampradhAyam . The happenings at 
the divya desam of SrivilliputthUr has been summarized by 
Sri Venkat Iyengar .This divya desam is her piRantha Veedu;
let us see what is happening at Her Pukkaham (Srirangam ).

Dhanur Maasa AarAdhanam at Srirangam , Thiruadhyayanothsavam
( Pahal Patthu, Iraa Patthu , Sri Vaikunta EkAdasi,
NammAzhwAr MokshOthsavam )are the redeeming hall marks of this 
sacred month of the Sri Sookthis of SooDikkoduttha NaachiyAr
( ThiruppAvai and NaachiyAr Thirumozhi )and the Thiruvaimozhi
of NammAzhwAr and other divya prabhndhams .

I will first give the overview of the festivities .
Sri Venkat Kanumala wishes to have a focused celebration
during the  weeek end of December 28 at Sri RanganathA temple
at Pomona, NY on divya prabhandham recital(s). He will be announcing 
the dates on the net .May I request all the BhakthAs in 
the tristate area and within traveling distance to 
join at Sri Ranganatha"s temple and receive the blessings of 
the Divya dampathis? 

Sri T.R.Govindarajan of NJ has already summarized the 
adhyayana kramam during the Month of Margahzhi to
KurEsA's birthday . I will focus on the tradition at 
Srirangam and sumamrize the events and the appropriate 
paasurams that are recited during these days .Sriranga
Vaasis and those who are more familiar with the uthsava
kramams there are requested to correct any mistakes in
this narration .
