     Dear  Bhakti group members ,
    
     Namo NArAyanA . kindly accept adiyens pranAmams. 

   
    The mercy of Sriman NArAyanA has made adiyen to write an article on
SamAshrayanam. Adiyen will post it as a series.

      Thanks to Sri VakhuLAbharanan ( Anand Rangarajan ) for encouraging
adiyen to write on this topic. Adiyens heartfelt gratitude to Sri 
Sadagopan and Sri JagannAth for their valuable suggestions.    

   The references are :

  1. SriVaishnavism - VishistAdvaita Research Center etal. 

  2. Pancha SamskAram (SamAshrayanam) I & II - ( Sri K.R.NArAyanan) (
Translation of the original in Tamil by Sri U.Ve. Purisai NadAthoor
KrishnamAchAryA swAmy) 
  
  *  part I : Nrusimha PriyA Mag ; Samputam 55 ;  Sanchikai 7.  
  *  part II: Nrusimha PriyA Mag ; Samputam 55 ;  Sanchikai 8.

  3. AchArya SamAshrayanam (Resorting the preceptor) - Dr.S.PadmanAbhan ;
     Nrusimha PriyA Mag; samputam 54 ; Sanchikai 7; Etazh 2 . 


   Actual credit goes to the AchAryAs who wrote these referred articles 
/ book . Adiyen has simply assembled the various points presented by them 
with some elaboration. 

    If someone senses any mistake in the article , it is due to adiyens
connection with prakruti. So , kindly pardon adiyen for the same . But ,
please do point out the mistake without fail .


   For advanced learning , one should learn "Sath Charitra rakshai " of
SwAmi VedAnta Desikan. No subject is left untouched by our Desikan . Hope
that this article  kindles further interest to  learn the works of our
AchAryAs & more importantly to undergo SamAshrayanam (for those who
haven't had so).
