Sri Ranganatha Divyamani Padukabhyam namaha.

Dear Bhakta-s

Yesterday, 02-01-2000, was pAadukA avathAra thirunAL. It was on this very
day, around seven centuries ago, Swamy Desikan had composed the mahA kAvyam
"Sri Ranganatha Paduka Sahasram" in praise of Lord Sri Ranganatha.
Though Swamy Desikan has innumerable works to his credit, it is only in Sri
Ranganatha Paduka Sahasram, Swamy Desikan finally says in the 1001 st
slokam- 

				"saphalam mama janma tAvadEthath"

and not in any of his other works.
Such is the greatness of Sri Ranganatha Paduka !!!


" maNipAdukayOryugam murArE:
  mamanityam vidhadhAthu mangaLAni
  adhikrthya charAcharasya rakshAm
  anukampA kshamayOrivAvathAra: "
					- dwandwa paddhathi - 2nd slokam

Sri Ranganatha Divyamani Padukabhyam namaha.
