Dear Bhagavatas I am forwarding the following News item as it appeared in the Hinduonline.com on Friday, December 10, 1999 for your information. Dasoham Anbil Ramaswamy ============================================================= Vaikunda Ekadasi festival begins By Our Special Correspondent TIRUCHI, DEC. 9. The Annual Vaikunda Ekadasi Festival at the Sri Ranganathaswami temple at Srirangam commenced today with ``Arayar Sevai'' at the Arjunan mandapam by Sri Nathamuni Arayar. As a prelude to the festival, Thirunedunthandagam was performed at Santhanu mandapam opposite to the sanctum sanctorum by Sri Lakshminarayana Arayar last night. There was heavy police bandobust at the temple to prevent any untoward incidents. Vehicular traffic was diverted through the Amma Mandapam road, due to the construction of the railway overbridge at Gandhi Road.
