RanganAthar and Sri Ranganayaki thAyAr. The Srivaikunda ekAdasi

mOksha uthsavam. As of now it is  expected  that  500  bhakthAs
will attend this uthsavam in  Sri Ranga kShethram  of  USA.  In
addition 100 strong contingent of  Sri  Rangaraja bhakthAs will
attend  from  all  across USA. Elaborate arrangements are being
made for doing mOhini alankAram on 18th dec. and Sri nammAzhwAr
mOksham on 25th dec. evening.  adiyEn   is  leaving for Newyork
tomorrow  and  will be attending  this celebrations for 2 weeks

It is almost time.  A few of us will have the great blessing of
starting the Thiruvadyayana Utsavam for Sri Ranganatha.  Swami
Nammazhvar and Srimad Adhivan Satakopan have come to the U.S.
just for this occassion and will stay among us and bless us
from now on.  It all starts on December 18 and will last till
Dec 31st.  Of course, the main event is on Dec 24, 25 and 26 with Nammazhvar 
Moksham celebrated on Dec 25th evening.  For more information, please take a 
look at the flyer at
the following site.

We have prepared the text of Sri Desika Prabhandam for easy recitation. It 
is now available as a MS-Word document.  While the entire Sri Desika 
Prabhandham will be recited at the
conclusion of the utsavam, some of the Prabdhandams, such as Adaikkalappattu 
aand Adhikara Sanraham, are recited
every day as part of Nithyanusandhanam during Anaddyayanam.
So, if you are attending the utsavam, please feel free
to download the zip file from the link provided below and come
prepared.  We have also included the Satrumurai kramam for Margazhi
during the Anadyayana period in this zip file.

We have spent a lot of time and effort preparing this text.
We will be happy to share the files with interested others,
but we would like to know who will be using it and how.
Therefore, if you wish to download it for any purpose other
than the Adyayana Utsavam at Sri Ranganatha temple, please
let us know.

Hope to see you soon at Sri Rangam of USA.
