Dear  Bhakti Group Members:

Sri. Paundarikapuram Acharyan, Shri. Gopala Desikan swamy told my wife when 
performing Pancha SamskAram to her that she should say "am" instead of 
Pranavam in ashtAcharam and in stotras. This may be generally followed in the 
Vadakalai sects. Even, today I hear from some that women folks shoud not chant
Sri. VishnusahasranAma stotram for whatever reason.

Govindarajan Dasan.
