My dear Bhagavatas, Please accept adiyEn's pranamam. I would like to request all of you to consider the following appeal very seriously and give it wide publicity. The construction of our Sri Ranganatha temple is moving on swiftly. The estimated cost to complete the construction is 1.3 miilion dollars. We are falling far short of this amount. Hence this urgent appeal to bhagavathotamas for you kind support. Our Sri Ranganatha temple will have a total area of 6500 square feet uptairs (with all sannidhis) and an equally good 6500 sq. feet built-in area for kalyana mandapam downstarirs, thus a total of 13,000 sq. feet. May I request you all to kindly sponsor as many sq. feet as possible at the rate of $101 per sq. feet, or in the true Sri Vaishnava tradition of $111 per sq. feet. Who knows, the sq. feet you sponsored may be right at the feet of Lord Ranganatha or Sri Maha Lakshmi. I request you very sincerely to please spread the word around of sponsoring a square-foot until we complete the temple. Please do your best. Please send this appeal to your friends and family. Thank you. ADIYEN, VENKAT.
