SRI: Dearest Sisters and Brothers, This is your madhavakkannan reporting to duty after having been recharged with the Divine katAkshams of Sri Padmavathi sametha Srininvasa perumal, Sri Ranganayaki sametha Sri Ranganatha and Sri Bhoomipiraatti sametha Oppaarilappan. It was simply a marvellous visit to back home during this festival of Vaikunta Ekadashi with Arayar sEvai. It was also fruitful to prostrate at the Feet and have merciful glances from Srimad Poundareekapuram Andavan Swamigal and perform prapatti at the AvhAryAL's Feet. It is the grace of Divya Dampathis' and of NammAzhwAr (in spite of my diluting His Tiruvaaimozhi) that enabled me to undergo this event. AcharyaL asked me to have a sEthu snanam at ThiruppallANi before prapatti. Swami spoke for about 21/2 hours on saraNagathi-OOrdhva pundram-aagaara niyamam and its neccessity- Pancha samskaram-japam- our natural belongingness to Sriman Narayanan and so on. (Later, let me narrate to you all about it). Swami was ALL PRAISE for these Bhakti Discussions (I had taken some of our postings and showed to Him- Not my posts; but of others, like Sri V. Sadgopan) and SDDS. Swami talked very high of Sri Anbil Ramaswamy (unfortunately, I could not meet Anbil Swami) and of Sri Muralidhar Rangaswamy. Just a share note and to keep you informed. about 160 e-mails were received yesterday when I logged on.(Yet to read them!). It must have been a great maargazhi and Grand Denver. Wishing you all a much more spritual Life and peace. Vardhadhaam abhi vardhadhaam. Ram Ram Regards dAsan madhavakkannan P.S. Planning to commence(or continue?) the Thiruvaaimozhi on the remaining patthus tomorrow.
