Scriptures for Neophytes

Dearest Sri Ram Gopalaswamy,

Thanks first for your beautiful narration on six a~ngas (which I had 
queried in Thiruvaaymozhi 7.10).

Regarding scriptures for Neophytes, I guess all of our scriptures are 
only for Neophytes. AchAryAs are so compassionate to bless us with their 
compostions. Take for example, Sri ramanujA's Gadhyatrayam, Swami 
desikan's (all) slOkAs, AzhwAr's sweet, deep, philosophical, rich, 
pAsurams. Only thing is we neither have sanskrit knowledge nor Tamil 
knwoledge, due to our (rich?) English learning only. 

But Scholars like Sriman Sadgopan, Sri Anbil swamin, Sri MK Sudharshan, 
Sri krishnamachari, Sri Sampath rengarajan, Sri KK Anand, Sri Mani, Sri 
krishna kalalE, Sri P. Dileepan, Sri Vijay Srinivasan, Smt Vasudha 
Narayanan, and many others in this forum (whom I would have missed to 
include) have all been contributing in English in simple, lucid, 
explanations, which get automatically drilled into our brains. Since, 
you have joined this group recently, I am writing this to you. 

You will see to believe this when you browse the archives.

BhagawathAs, please correct me if there is any errors in above.

Ram Ram

With Best Regards

NarayaNa dAsan madhavakkannan
