Dear Bhagavathas,

My wife and I have just returned from a five week visit to India with many
fond memories of not only our own family, but also of the temples that we
visited and the SriVaishnava families that we met.

Although we had to balance our pursuit of SriVaishnava culture with family
and wedding obligations, we took every opportunity to stay connected with
the SV community and our temples.   During our five week stay, we had the
opportunity to visit Thirupati, Kanchipuram, and several notable temples in
and around Hyderabad.  We also met with several members of this forum or
their families and engaged in many interesting discussions on the riches of
our tradition.  Wherever we travelled, I made sure that I mentioned this
forum and the related activities of SDDS and Ahobila Matham USA.  Everyone
that we spoke with expressed their happiness in knowing that there is so
much interest in preserving our Sampradayam, both in and outside of India. 

Over the next several postings, I would like to take the opportunity to
share some musings on the places we visited and the people that we met.  I
hope that you will find these interesting.


Daasanu Daasan,
