Dear BhakthAs :

Today is the avathAra Dinam of Soodikkoduttha NaacchiyAr .
Today is the day of the Car festival of our ANDAL at
Sri VilliputthUr . Today is the great day of celebrations
at Srirangam temple . 

Sriman Venkat Iyengar of Srivilliputthur has written a wonderful 
account of the car Festiavl at Srivilliputthur . Srimans Rangaswamy
and MaadhavakkaNNan have paid their tribute to the lady , who wedded
RanganAthan .

Last Saturday , we celebrated ahead the Aadipooram celebraitons.
A beautiful and SaasthrOktha Thirumanjanam for our ThAyAr was
done . Sri RanganAtha priyai heard the recital of Sri Sthuthi ,
BhU Sthuthi and GodhA sthuthi bty assembled children of Hers . 
She was then united with Lord RanganAtha and a ThirukkalyANa 
Uthsavam was celebrated next . Ladies sang many KalyAnam songs 
and the 5 Bhattars , who came especially for the MahA samprOkshaNam
left thereafter for India. A grand farewell was given to them
and the dhivya dampathis blessed them for their kaimkaryam .

There are a lot fo material in the Bhakthi Archives and
Sri Vaishnava Home pages relatign to ANDAL and Her dhivya Sookthis , 
GodhA Sthuthi of Swamy Desikan and about Sri VilliputthUr itself and 
the festivals and the Sannidhis there. I am listing them quickly
for the benefit of those , who wish to browse them and to offer
their salutaitons to the greatness of ANDAL in our SampradhAyam :
