Dear Shree Malolan Cadambi,

The Lord at Tiru ViN Nagar is called "Oppiliyappan" meaning the
supreme self who is unparalleled and unsurpassed. The verse
"mAm Ekam saraNam vraja" is in the "Charama-Slokam" of
Bhagavat Gita's 18th chapter which is told by Shreeman Narayanan
who is "Oppiliyappan". As the "Charama-Sloka" is one amoung
the three divine secrets of Visistadvaita Shree Vaishnava philosophy
and practice, I cannot explain the secret meaning of it through this mail
but I give you an outline of the meaning of "mAm Ekam saraNam vraja"
very very briefly. 

"mAm Ekam saraNam vraja" means -
The Lord Shreeman Narayanan says "Surrender to me and me alone
as I am the means-upAya and goal-upeYa"

For further details and secret meaning of the same, please write to
me after mentioning your Aacharya's name from who you got blessed with
"Pancha Samskaaram".

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI Ramanuja Daasan.
