Dear Sri Sadagopan,
Thanks for your mail. Today, I have posted an article on ' Face to Face with
Yathivaras'. Hope you will enjoy it.

 My trip to your native place was not only enjoyable but really memorable
since I had occasion to meet with the great V.N.Gopaladesikan Swami who paid
glowing tributes to your qualities and scholarship. I will be writing
 tomorrow about this in my next article entitled "Face to Face with
Acharyas".

I  enjoyed your series on the 'Sannyasi ascending the throne'. 
It has brought nostalgic remembrances about our close association, especially
when 
I arranged for a Chartered bus and took a bus load of Kalakshepa Goshti
Sishyas of the Swami and went along with him to the various shrines he
visited before  initiation into the holy order and culminating  at Dasavatara
Sannidhi, Srirangam where the Swami took the ' oath of office' etc.in the
presence of 44th Jeeyar (his Acharya) and Poundarikapuram Andavan Swami (his
mentor). 

I am afraid, after reading your wonderful series, I cannot resist the
temptation to narrate my experiences with this great Acharya.
