Dear BhakthAs :

1 . One of our dear members had the following 
query addressed to me . I have coverd this 
subject in my January , 1996 posting , which is
archived in the Bhakthi list archives .
Others , who might be interested 
in this topic are welcome to refer to it.

2 . I am delighted to read the posting from
Sri MadhavakkaNNan on his plans to cover
kaliyan"s P{eriya Thirumozhi.

It is most welcome news in the context 
of the efforts to publicize the greatness 
and beauty of our Divya prabhandhams referred to
in Sri Mani VaradarAjan's posting .

Srimathi KrishnamAchAri , Sriman Sampath Rengarajan 
are bringing us insights in to ANDAL's aruLiccheyalkaL 
in addition to Sri Mani VaradarAjan's own efforts related 
arumpadha URai on individual paasurams of ThiruppAvai .
Sri MadhavakkaNNan has completed his coverage 
of ThiruvAimozhi and Naanmuhan ThiruvanthAdhi .
Hopefully ,we will have the rest of the prabhandhams
covered gradually for the sake of completeness .
We need these postings at numbe rof levels to
reach people at many levels .

I am delighted to hear that Sri Thirumalai ANDAn Varadhan
will soon start a Kaimkaryam on the most significant
Prabhandham of Madhura Kavi AzhwAr . This is a 
kathavya Prathignai on his part and it can not be
more timely inview of the emphasis 
on AchArya Nishtai by Sri Madhura Kavi AzhwAr. 
Regarding the other 5 Prabhandhams of Kaliyan ,
individual postings on them are archived in 
the Bhakthi List archives.The dates
for your reference are :
