Dear BhakthAs :

You might recall the ongoing work on the design
and SamarpaNam of Paandyan Kondai for Sri Kanakavalli
SamEtha Sri VeerarAghava perumAL of ThiruvellUr headed by 
Sri KGK Swamy of Chennai. In this context , Sri Anand has recently 
posted an appeal . 

Sri KGK is slowly recovering from the after effects 
of the car  accident due to the grace of 
Sri Viadhya VeerarAghava PerumAL ; the Paandyan Kondai 
Kaimkaryam is very much on his mind day and night . 

AdiyEn would welcome your support of this Magnificient 
Kaimkaryam .The remaining need is for $5K and if
50 BhakthAs come forward to contribute $100 each or
whatever amount they can , the Kaimkaryam can 
come to a close and the special jewelery can
be presented to Sri Vaidhya VeerarAghava PerumAn 
by all of the BhakthAs .I have requestd Sri Karalapakkam
Anand to share with us an image of the Paandyan Kondai
that is under preparation in Chennai .I pledge my
support of $100 .Your support can kindly be sent 
to Srimathi Nagu Satyan of Colorado (c/o SVSS ).   

By the way , any one , who wishes to scan in and make 
available four pictures for the list from my recent trip to
India are welcome to contact me .Two of them are on
the Rathna SatAri presented to Udayavar at Melkote.
The remaining two are splendid images of RathnAngi-Clad
Sri VaradarAjA of Kaanchi and VajrAngi clad Sri SrinivAsan
of Thiruppathi. 

In honor of the occasion of the Paandya Kondai
fund raising effort , I am placing the following 
Krithi in Raagam AtANA at the lotus feet of 
Sri Vaidhya-VeerarAghava PerumAL for removing all of
our Hruth ThApams :

Pallavi:   Sri VaidhyanAtham BhajEham , Sri VasudEvi
           SamEtha Sri VeerarAghavam BhajEham 

( adiyEn meditates on the  Doctor of all Doctors ,
Lord VeerarAghavan of ThiruveLLUr united with
Sri Vasumathi ( Kanakavalli )ThAyAr.) 

Anupallavi: Sarva rOga hara bhEshajam , KimgruhEsam
            hruth thApa naasini tatastham 
            (Sri Vadhyanaatham )

( adiyEn salutes the Lord , who rests at the banks
of Hruth ThApa Naasini pushkariNi and is the curer
of all illness ; He is the One , who asked SaalihOthra
Maharishi as to where He should lie down after partaking
the food offered ).

CharaNam :  VeekshAraNya KshEthra Naatham 
            Vijaya kOti VimAna visEsha vaibhavam 
            agOcharam aadhi madhyAntha rahitham
            SaalihOthra rishi SoubhAgyam Sundaram 
           ( Sri VaidhyanAtham BhajEham )

(AdiyEn celebrates the glories of the Lord of 
VeekshAraNya KshEthram , who rests under the famous
VijayakOti VimAnam ; His anantha kalyAna guNams
are beyond any one's ability to describe adequately .
He is without beginnign, middle and end .He is the 
good fortune of SaalihOthra Maharishi , on whose head 
His hand rests).
