Today was a thought provoking day.Indeed it was after a visit to the Pathasala by Sri Velukkudi Krishnan ,Adiyen along with others.Late Srirama Bharathi who was holding the post of Dy Director,D.D. was just 51 yrs when Lord Sriman Narayana called him to His Abode.The Pathasala an effort of  a  single person is a standing example to all Srivaishnavites .In his own way Srirama Bharathi was spreading the message of  Emperumanar mostly among the masses, sorrounding the Pathasala  in a true sense follower of  Sri Ramanuja.The villagers can appreciate music and thro music he spread the message of God  and His teachings.Today you can hear for yourself young girls ,children reciting the Sacred Nalayira Divya Prabhandam set to musical note.They take you to an emotional plane when you can realize Supreme Lord Narayana  is not far away from you.
My dear friends pl make it to visit the Pathasala a jouney which you will cherish.
Today,activities are being carried  by his dedicated wife who carries on the torch with same enthusiasm and bhakthi and single minded devotion to the cause.
Sri Velukkudi Swami  desired to know if there were any unfinshed project or plans.We were replied that the Pathasala  continues to spread the message  of the Lord thro Nalayira Divya Prabhandam  and that they would like to teach more and more  to sing the Sacred verses.Smt Bharati however made a specific request with regard to selling of the Nalayira Divya Prabhandam book.The book renedred in English  with Tamil Original.The book is the outcome of 25yrs of research.The book printed on ITC tissue paper has 800 pages of printed matter.The book has an appendix on the lives of Alwars.The bound volume is priced rs 5oo/  and for students the paperback edition is ready and Smt Bharati desires to sell these 1000 copies to students at subsidised  price.She requires assistance in this regard  and I earnestly feel this is golden opportunity to one and all  take part in a sacred service  by buying or helping to sell as many copies as possible. The proceeds go for the activities of the Pathasala.Smt Bharathi can be reached by phone Chennai-India- 2460527.
