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 .
