Dear Sri Raman Kannan

This is Madhavan Kannan. Your enjoyment is great esepcially early in the 
mroning and sharing with children. Superb. I too relish his inimtable style. 
His writing resmbles exactly that of Sri MK Sudharsan's (who now does not 
write - I don't know why- Sri Sudharsan, can you continue..)

Sri Mani's Srivaishnava Home page, and the bhakti list is one of the 
conributing factors for many of us, even proceeding with Samasrayanam and 
Baranyasam. To follow our traditions. The very growth with so many members 
in the list enlivens it. It also brings people to have NAMA events.

His ( I am not speaking on his behalf) request to me when I started posting 
the Tiruvaymozhi, and now Periya Thirumozhi posts, was "please post twice a 
week, so that it is read. True, the very purpose of writing to share with 
others what we enjoy. If they simply a flood of posts, and left with little 
time, people (like you) read only Sri Sampath Kumar's and delete adiyEn's 
ramble and blabber. Sri Mani (like a typical srivaishnava) gives weightage 
not by the quality of the post alone, but also the interest and enthu of the 
writer, (though not as good as others' posts.)

So, when you don't get Sri Sampathkumar's posts, that gives me a chance for 
your enjoyment.

Your web knowledge will sure be made use of by BhAgawathAs posts.. for 
exapmle, you may like to have a kuresa page, where you can have all Sri 
Sampath Kumar's posts (with his permission) and also linked to these lists 
and other Sri vaishnava pages. Won't that be great and good kiamkaryam to 
Srivaishnava universe? Just a loud thinking.

I read this Bhakti list between 5 and 6 AM everyday and sure enough
I am off to a great ..contentful day...

Particularly I enjoy the recent postings on Kurathazwan.
I am indebted to Mr. Sampath Kumaran for bringing Kurathazwan's bliss
in to our home. My kids and I myself have for the first time
learned of this great Acharya.

Perhaps we were enjoying too much...I see the moderator's post
with a gentle reminder.

I am concerned and summarily do not agree but Bhakti forum is not
meant for ironing out these procedural differences. I would not
read this list between 5 and 6 AM if it were. I will correspond
with the moderator directly.

For those of you who wish to continue to "generously" share
what you have read on our great Acharyas, here is a suggestion.

I will host your entire article on a private website as is
open to all for visits. You can submit URLs to this list.
Subject to few reasonable conditions (see below).

Therefore, we would be in compliance without much loss on either side.
Those of us who want to read can pursue the link...those who
want to skip may also skip without too much effort.

Selfish, I am in making this offer for I want to have access to
these lucid and informal expositions.

Thank you

Subject matter MUST be on vedas (language indpendent),
Acharyas (philosophy independent), Hindu Temples of
the world ( location independent ). Articles may not be negative
or may not be critical of people, philosophy or any other
religion or other ways of living.
