Dear bhagavathas,

We are honored and delighted to announce the next live upanyaAsam
(discourse) inTamil by Sri U Ve E S Bhoovarahachar Swamy on Sri ParAsara
BhaTTar's ashTa shlOki.

Sri Bhoovarahachar swamy's upanyasams have the uncanny ability to bring to
light abstruse shaastraarthams in a very elegent yet simple manner, and
everyone of you is strongly urged to dial in and partake of the divine
nectar of AzhwAr AchArya aruLiccheyals seamlessly laced into a discourse on

AshTashlOki is considered to be one of the most insightful works of renowned
sri vaishNava Acharya, Sri parasara bhaTTar (PB), whose  divine insights and
consummate mastery of the conceptual underpinnings of srI vaishNavam were
matched only by his devotion to emberumAnAr and srI ranganAtha.

In AsTashlOki, swamy PB delineates the very essence of thirumantram,
dvayam and charam shlOkam, in eight stanzas.  The first four stanzas
describe meanings expounded in the thirumantram, stanzas five and six
lay out the essense of dvayam and the last two stanzas provide detail the
quintessence of Sri KrishNa charama shlOkam.

Sri Bhoovarahachar swamy, whose endearing style of delivery is marked by the
ability to simplify, communicate, difficult to comprehend tattvArthams,
will continue his exposition on dvayArtham through a description of the
sixth shlOka.
