Wonderful English Translation of Divya Prabanda Paasurams

Dear Shreemathi Kalyani Krishnamachari,

I appreciate your translation of complicated Tamil Pasurams in such a
wonderful manner in lucid English. I have come across many translations
and interpretations of Divya Prabanda Paasurams but rarely found that
they have the exact Tatparyam (purport) as explained by the great
commentators like Shree PeriyaVaacchaan Pillai and other Aaacharyas.
Further many translations spoil the power of expression of ideas and
concepts which are actually result of Alwar's experiences (Bhagavat
Anubhava Parivaaham/Janitham) in the form of divine Tamil verses. I find 
your translation as a wonderful one bringing out the exact meanings as
told by our poorva-aacharyas. The power of expression of ideas and
concepts as told in Mani-Pravaala Vyaakyaanams are found unchanged in
your English translation. I appreciate your Bhagavat-Bhaagavata 
Kainkaryam and Pray at the Lotus feet of Shreeman NaaraayaNa Paramaatman
to bless you so that the entire prabanda vyaakyaanams by vyaakyaana
chakravarthy Shree PeriyaVaachchan Pillai gets translated in English or
your translations inspire many to do this kainkaryam.

Thanks & Regards
