SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Dear Bhaktas,

Just as a refresher, the first two Upanyasams discuss the following
topics (based on the excellent summary of Sri V. Sadagopan Swamin).

The upanyAsams can be split into Five constituent parts :
1. Svasthi Vachanam , Sautations to pUrvAchAryAs   and Srirangam Divya
Dampathis and recognition of the Kaimkaryams of USA
        based BhakthAs to advance the cause of our ancient sampradhAyam and
a plea to work together .
2. UpakAra Sangraham / BhagavAn's limitless help to us :
        Elaboration of the First verse of UpakAra Sangraham of Swami Sri
Desikan .
3. The Supermacy of ArchAvathAram over Para , VyUha ,
        Vibhava and AntharyAmi forms of the Pancha Roopi , Sriman NaarAyaNA
: Three facets of our conviction that Archai is the most important for us ,
as residents of His LeelA vibhuthi , while we strive to attain Moksha Siddhi
through SadAchArya Sambhandham and BhagavAn's acceptance of our Prapatthi
performed  by our sadhAchAryAs on our behalf .
4. The significance of ThAyAr's ( SitA PirAtti"s )
auspicious katAksham on four occasions in Srimadh RaamAyaNam in the context
of the use of the ThAyAr's kalyaaNa nAmam as " VisAlAkshi"  by Her prANa
nAthan, Sri Raamachandra MahA Prabhu.
5. The elevated role of Piratti in the process of granting SharaNagati-the 
importance of Sri Devi, Bhu Devi, NeeLa Devi, Daya
Devi and Padhuka Devi-the six aspects of the term Sri, and their
significance, the attributes of Bhu Devi and NeeLa Devi and of course
Swami desikan's Anubhavam of Daya Devi and Padhuka Devi from the
Daya Shatakam and Padhuka Sahasram, respectively.

With pramAnams from AzhwAr's divya prabhandham , purvAchAryA's Sri Sookthis
,IthihAsams ,Quotations from KrishNa KarNAmrutham , the revered AchAryA
drove home the following messages of his upanyAsam :
(1) Sriman NaarAyaNA's limitless upakArams to us (2) the uniqueness of
NamperumAL and the worship of Him in ArchAvathAram at Srirangam over and
above the worship of Him by all of us through any one of His other four
forms ( Param ,Vyuham , Vibhavam and AntharyAmi )(3)The extreme act
of compassion on the part of Piratti in coming to the rescue of a
