The Divine Stories of the AzhwArs

From: Mohan Sagar (
Date: Tue Jul 24 2001 - 21:06:05 PDT

On this most holy day of thiruvAdipooram, with the recitation of Sri
Andal AshtOtharam by His Holiness Sri Tridandi Chinna Sriman Narayana
Ramanuja Jeeyar being broadcast to our speaker phone from Chicago, I am
blessed to announce that the release of the first phase of the second
educational project of the Samskriti Institute and the International
Ramanuja Society, a two-tape set on the Divine Stories of the AzhwArs.

The tapes are the result of the tireless efforts of Sri V. Sadagopan,
Sri M. A. Alwar and Sri T. S. Sundara Rajan, and serve as a prelude to
the multimedia CD ROM on the lives of our Tamil Saints that is currently
in production.  The stories of the AzhwArs are rendered in a clear and
lucid English such that newcomers and Western educated youth can
benefit.  Those of us already familiar with the AzhwArs
will find some insightful new information on the remarkable lives 
of our Saints.

The life of each AzhwAr is set to beautiful instrumental Carnatic
pieces, and is preceded and concluded by appropriate Sanskrit
thaniyans.  The music and Sanskrit hymns are such that the tapes can
also serve as a source for
meditation and reflection, or as a relaxing and spiritually uplifting
way to spend the long commute to and from the office.

Each tape set is $11, proceeds going towards the production and shipping
costs.  To order the tapes, please send a check made payable to the
International Ramanuja Society to my home address:

Mohan R Sagar
1239 S. Boston St.
Denver CO 80231

Please make sure that your correct mailing address is on the check.
