Dear BhakthAs :
Sri Rengarajan's posting is most welcome and timely
to understand the significance of MadapaLLI vantha MaNam .
Sri Rengarajan also described the exemplary Kaimkaryam
that AchArya RaamAnujA did for Sri RanganathA every day .
I will cover in this posting a day of AchArya RaamAnujA
at Srirangam in service to the divya dampathis .
