Namo NaarAyaNA 
Dear Sri VaishNavAs :

Recently , the revered praakrutham (current)Jeeyar of 
Ahobila Mutt blessed us with an anugraha BhAshaNam for 
the AchArya RaamAnujA CD ROM getting ready for release at the end
of this month .H.H. the Jeeyar has seen two versions of this CD ROM 
earlier at ThirunArAyaNapuram (Sep 98)and Bangalore (January 99). 

Distinguished Sri VaishNavite Scholars have also reviewed 
thoroughly three times the content for authenticity 
to Bhagavath RaamAnuja SiddhAntham.The last of the review
will be completed by July 18 at Bangalore. AdiyEn has summarized
the contents of this CD ROM in six earlier Bhakthi net 
postings.It is adiyEn's Bhaagyam to be part of 
this noble Kaimkaryam to our sampradhAyam .

The copying and distribution of this unique CD ROM  will 
commence at the beginning of August and will be completed 
hopefully by the middle of August . Copies can be sent to
intersted BhakthAs thereafter.

Those who wish to purchase this CD ROM for their
families and friends are requested to send a check for $30 
to get their copies to Sri P.Dileepan  . Please feel free 
to contribute generously beyond the suggested 30$ for 
one unit to help us engage in other CD ROM Kaimkaryams 
to spread the magnificient message of AchArya RaamAnujA 
and the revered AchAryAs of Sri VaishNavA Guru paramparai . 
Some of the CD ROMs in planning are :(1)108 Divya Desams : 
A Virtual Tour (2) Life and works of the twelve AzhwArs .
 
Sofar , one hundred BhakthAs have contributed funds 
ranging from 30$ to $1,008 for the AchArya RaamAnujA 
CD ROM development .BhakthAs from Bharain ,
Singapore and USA have helped to raise a grand sum of $5K .
The development cost for this ambitious and
pioneering CD ROM has however exceeded the sums 
raised sofar . ALL OF THE BHAKTHAAS,WHO HAVE SUPPORTED 
THIS KAIMKARYAM  WILL RECEIVE ONE CD ROM AS SOON AS 
THE PRINTING OF THE COPIES IS COMPLETED .

Thanks very much for all of your past support and anticipated
help to keep this bright light (the message of 
AchArya RaamAnujA ) shining from the top of the hill 
of Sruthis to guide our path during our dEha Yaathrai and 
develop SadAchArya sambhandham and their anugrahams.

I am attaching the Blessings of Sri SrivaNN SatakOpa 
Sri NaarAyana YahtIndhra MahA Desikan,which he has sent 
in the form of a short video for inclusion in 
the front end of the AchArya RaamAnujA CD ROM .

CD ROM to NaamA Chapters and use appropriate sections 
of this posting ?  Thanks again to every one of You .

The MangaLAsAsanam of H.H. the 45th Jeeyar of AhObila Matam 
*************************************************************
(English Translation of H.H. The Jeeyar's MangaLAsAsanam )

" At ThirunArAyanapuram the following famous slOkam 
is proudly recited often :

yEthathAm YathirAjasya SaamrAjyam SarvathOmukham
Yathra SampathkumArOpi YuvarAjAspatham 

The meaning of this slOkam is : May the SaamrAjyam of 
YathirAjar (AchArya RaamAnujA ) spread to every corner 
of this world. He is indeed the SamrAt of the whole world .
Even Lord SampathkumAran of ThirunArAyaNapuram recognized
that and qualified to become the yuvarAjA for this yathirAjA . 

People describe BhagavAn as Sarva Swami and 
Sarva LokAdhipathi . That adhikAram to Him came about
because of Bhagavan's credentials as the ChellappiLlai 
Of YathirAjA . All the wealth of the Lord  was
of no special distinction for Him. Only when he
qualified to become the ChellappiLLai of YathirAjA ,
He came into authority and status as Ubhaya VibhUthinAthan .
According to our purvAchAryAs , Lord SampathkumAran is 
under the control of BhAshyakArar ,who embraces the Lord 
and rules over Him .That is why BhagavAn is named 
EmperumAn , where as AchArya RaamAnujA is revered 
as EmperumAnAr .That indeed is the greatness of 
AchArya RaamAnujA ! 

I am delighted to have seen the CD ROM version of
the life and teachings of our BhAshyakArar and pray
to Sri Lakshmi Nrusimhan to bless this laudable
Kaimkaryam to spread Udayavar's message to Sri VaishNavA
community around the world ."
