Dear BhakthAs:

It is very good news indeed to learn about the release of
one of the five great Sthavams of Swamy KUrEsar on 
His forthcoming Thirunakshathram by Dr.NSA Swamy of
Bangalore . 

The extraordinary kaimkaryam of Dr.N.S. AnanatharangAchArya Swamy
is a very special one. With vigor and devotion , Swamy has blessed
us with monographs without let so that we can gain an understanding of
the great SrI Sookthis of our PoorvAchAryALs , Veda Manthrams,
NaalAyira Dhivya prabhandham et al. Wish I could read Kannada
to benefit from the comprehensive set of Monographs of Dr.NSA .
As always, this new release would contain marvellous insights 
into the purport of this Grantham of KurEsar and will benefit
the followers of Bhagavath RaamAnuja Darsanam immensely .

While speaking about "SrI Vaikunta Sthavam " of KUrEsar, 
I wish to invite the attention of BhakthAs to another 
kaimakryam that Dr.NSA is engaged in . Thanks to the efforts 
of Sriman Krishna Kasyap of San Diego and Srimathi Nagu Satyan
of Denver , we are blessed to recieve the Tele-upanyAsam of
Dr.NSA on one of the most important works : SrI SaraNAgathi
Gadhyam of AchArya RaamAnujA . Because of the importance of 
the performance of SaraNAgathi in SrI VaishNavite Tradition , 
AchArya RaamAnujA performed Svanishtai Prapatthi in front of 
the Dhivya Dampathis of Srirangam on a Panguni Uttharam day , 
when They were together(sErthi sEvai).The Dhivya Dampathis of 
SrIrangam accepted Their dear AchAryan's Prapatthi and asked him 
to stay at their side in Srirangam until his dEha VyOham and 
subsequent ascent to Parama Padham .

Srutha PrakAsikAchArya , Periya VaacchAn PiLlai and Swamy
Desikan have written brilliant commentaries on SaraNAgathy
Gadhyam of AchArya RaamAnujA inview of its extraordinary importance
to us. Each of these AchAryAs have provided brilliant 
insights into the key words and passages of this Gadhyam.

Dr.NSA is giving a series of lectures for BhakthAs using 
the Telebridge on these three commentaries and is kind
enough to answer Questions and Answers on the day's
upanyAsam and general matters pertaining to SaraNAgathi.
These lectures are simply brilliant and deeply scholarly.
SrI KrishNa Kaasyap can provide more details for those 
who wish to benefit from these upayAsams.

Right now, Dr.NSA concluded the Poorva KhaNDam portion 
of Dhvaya manthram elaborated in the SaraNAgathy Gadhyam 
and is about to begin the Utthara KhaNDam section of
the Dhvaya Manthram . Dr.NSA's upanyAsam is
in English. Please join these most insightful 
UpanyAsams on SaraNAgathy Gadhyam and the different
and yet complimentary approaches of the above three 
great commentators on this grantham.

Oppiliappan Sannadhi is known as ThiruviNNagaram,
Aakasa Nagaram , VyOmapuri or the abode of 
Vaikunta Naathan. adiyEn hopes to set up a small
trust to have SaraNAgathy Gadhyam recited on
Panguni Uttharam days at Oppiliappan Koil from
this year on in celebration of Bhagavath RaamAnujA
and His illustrious Sishya Paramparai that includes
KurEsar in the front row. It was SrI KUrEsar that
showed the way for SrI ParAsara Bhattar and Swamy Desikan 
to compose many sthOthra granthams .

adiyEn will write a brief introductory note on
SrI Vaikunta Sthavam of KurEsar through a separate mail
in rememberance of the release of this important
monograph by Dr.NSA and pray to SrI VaikuntanAthan
to bless Dr.NSA with long life engaged in such
kaimakryams , perfect health and happiness born
out of the sharing of his extraordinary , SampradhAyic
Scholarship in  a tireless manner thru grantha
nirmANams and  UpanyAsams.
