Dear Bhagavatas

I cannot agree more with what our revered Sriman Sadagopan has written except 
that his words really apply more to my humble self than Sri Sadagopan 
himself. 

The Srivaishnava universe living away from our Acharyas back home, is deeply 
indebted to the breadth and depth of Sri Sadagopan's knowledge matched only 
by his indefatigable keenness to share it with us and for our benefit through 
his inimitable translations of the various Srivaishnava Srisooktis. 

I would like to remind that it was in recognition of his potential that the 
"Swami Desika Darsana Satsangam" in the first ever Srivaishnava Conference in 
USA in Buffalo City, New York way back in 1996 honored itself  by conferring 
on Sri Sadagopan  the title of "Bhagavad Ramanuja Darsana Tatparya Sardoolam"

This also applies to the edifying, electrifying, elevating and illuminating 
contributions of the various Bhagavatas, who though young in age seem ripe in 
wisdom (JnAna vriddhas) compared to VayO vriddhas like me.

As for myself, I am in the 'learning mode' and I am learning a lot from the 
scholarly and well -- researched postings of Sriman Sadagopan and the 
numerous other Bhagavatas on the Bhakti list, Malolan Net and the Acharyan 
group.

May the Divya Dhampatis grant us the benefit of the spiritual experiences of 
these noble souls in the days ahead.
