Dear Smt. Praveena and Sri. Anand:

Thanks to both of you for a wonderful summary of Swami
KooratthAzhwAn (SrivatsAnka miSrar)'s life.  I have also
had the bhAgyam of listening to the two upanyAsam tapes
by Velukkudi Krishnan Swami - every time I do, my eyes
brim with tears... especially the part where Sri. Velukkudi
Krishnan mentions that:

"vEdham enRa peNNukku --

vEdaanta vEdangangaL ellaam aabharaNangaL thaan,
Itihaasa puraaNa SaaStramellAm aabharaNangaL thaan,
AzhwAr aruLiccheydha divya prabandham ellAm AbharaNangaL thAn,
AchAryaLudaya vyAkhyAna stOtrangaLellAm AbharaNangaL thAn,
----
aanaal, vEdham enRa sthreenudaya kazhutthukku kattuva
thirumAngalya AbharaNam vandhu --

swaami kooratthAzhwAn udaya Sri sookthigaL than !!!"

Sorry if the above rendering is not accurate; I am just writing
from memory.  I will appreciate it very much if you can help
me locate the TEXT of these panchastavams either in
Sanskrit font (preferably) or in Tamil.  If not, I will be most
willing to reimburse costs to anyone who can mail me a copy
to my home address:

530 Buckingham Rd. # 1126
Richardson TX 75081 U.S.A.

Truly,
-Srinath C.
