Dear Bhagavatas,

It gives me great pleasure to go on record that the Anugraha BhashaNam 
by H.H. Srimad Andavan Swami of Srimad Poundarikapuram Ashramam was 
a resounding success. Part 2 of the Upanyasam will take place next 
Saturday, Jan 9, 1999, between 10.30 am-11.30 am (EST) which will mark 
the completion of the address by H.H. Feedback received from 
various listeners can be succinctly summarized as "Outstanding 
Upanyasam". One Bhaktai indicated that she was moved to tears and 
that it was like a live experience of "Lord Narayana" in her 

Today is a red letter day in the history of Srimad Poundarikapuram  
Ashramam since technology enabled us to hear the Sri Sookthis of the 
Acharya in the comfort of our living rooms in the USA, transcending 
geographical barriers. This was possible entirely due to the grace of 
the Divine Couple, the compassion of the Acharya, and the untiring 
efforts of U.Ve. Sri V.N. Venkatanathan Swamin, U.Ve. Sri M.K. Ramaswami 
Iyengar Swamin, and U.Ve. Sri Rajagopalan Swamin. Adiyen 
is most grateful to the board members of Sri Ahobila Muth, USA for 
their support, and for their efforts in reserving the teleconferencing 

All those who signed up for today's Upanyasam have automatically 
been signed up for next Saturday. There is NO EXTRA CHARGE for hearing 
part 2 of the Upanyasam. Please pay attention to the comments of 
Sri Dileepan Swamin with regard to maintaining pin-drop silence for the 
duration of the Upanyasam. Adiyen concurs with his sentiments and 
requests that those who need to provide mini Bhashyams or Upanyasams 
record the address of H.H. and give their commentary offline upon 
completion of H.H.'s address.

Sri Sadagopan Swamin: It is Adiyen's request that you provide 
a summary of both part 1 and part 2 of the Upanyasam in your imitable 
style. As always it is marvellous to see your careful attention to 

Namo Narayana,

Muralidhar Rangaswamy
