Dear BhakthAs all over the World!

I am attaching an urgent appeal from Dr.Venkat Kanumala of 
Sri Ranganatha temple , NY to help complete the remaining
ONE PERCENT of the Temple building kaimakryam to offically 
open to the temple to ALL BHAKTHAAS  on either May 28 or 
July 4 ,2001. We are thus very near completion of the rest of
the work regarding temple construction. A sum of 200K$ is
needed to cover the expenses related to complete the rest of 
the Kaimkaryam .

Donations of 1,000$ each by 200 BhakthAs would address
the needs to finish the remaining work. Please consider 
donating whatever amount you can.I pledge the deflection of
as much funds that I can from the sale of the special CD ROM on
AZHWAARS AND 108 DHIVYA DESAM TO THIS PROJECT.

Please browse the special home pages created for the AZHWAARS
AND 108 DHIVYA DESAM PROJECT WITH A SPECIAL SECTION ON
THIRUPPAANAR , WHO HAD A UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP TO LORD
RANGANAATHAN .The URL for this home page is:

http://www.geocities.com/perumal108

You would enjoy the majestic beauty of Lord
RanganAthan in His sayana sEvai at Pomona , NY and
Srirangam there and have the darsana soubhAgyam of
other dhivya desa EmperumAns as well.

Lord Rangan , Our perumAL
**************************
Sri RanganathAn is NAMPERUMAAL .All the AzhwArs and AchAryaas
of every sampradhAyam have worshipped at His holy feet starting
from Chaturmukha Brahma .

He has taken residence amidst us on the banks of the local
Cauvery (Hudson River) right here and His PraNavAkAra 
VimAnam is resplendent in the midst of Taconic range of
hills .

Please help in every way you can to realize finally
the ten year old dream of completing the work towards this 
temple  of Sri RanganAthan .

Thanks very much ,
Daasan , V.SatakOpan

>Dear Devotees,

>magnificent Moolavar, and some of the captivating 
>Divya Mangala Vigrahas of the Utsava Murtys.

>We requested all bhakthas of Sri Ranganatha to come 
>and participate in the religious kainkaryams at the 
>Temple and all of them responded with great enthusiasm.  
>With all this encouragement, we are planning to do the 
>Mahasamproksanam either around May 28th or July 4th of 
>2001.  We are just waiting to hear Bhagavat Samkalpam 
>through our great Acharyas.
>
>This great sannithi is built with the only mission 
>of propagating "Absolute surrender to Srimannarayana
>is the surest way to salvation".  This great project 
>was made possible, with the untiring efforts of so  
>many devotees who have given their time, services, 
>suggestions, financial support and most important, 
>offering their own souls at the feet of Srimannarayana.  
>We are very grateful to you all, for your unflinching 
>faith and patience for the past 12 years.

>wealth, Happiness and Nitya kainkaryam."

>Finally, as you all know, after the completion of 
>work, final bills start pouring in and we have to 
>make all the payments, at short notice.  Right now, 
>we have bills worth around $200,000= that need 
>urgent attention.  The temple can open its doors
>for the public only after we raise this amount.
>
>May I appeal to you all to help us raise the needed
>funds.  Please consider a donation, or a loan, with
>or without interest.  Please get in touch with one
>of the board members (names and phone numbers are
>available at http://www.ranganatha.org/board.html).
>Or, please call me at 304-424-6405 (weekday evening)
