Dear friends,a novice like me in Sampradhaya Vishayam need not tell the importance of Ramanuja Nootrandadi composed by ThiruArangathu Amudanar.It is known as  Prappana Gayathri.A Srivaishnavan is required to recite the Ramanuja Nootrandadi daily even if he can not recite Prabhandam.It was composed two times and only on the third attempt Emperumanar approved the  text  composed by ThiruArangathu Amudanar.Each of the 108 pasurams  pays glowing tribute to our Jagathacharian ,Emperumanar.

Immediately after a purposeful trip to States ,Sh Velukkudi K rishnan Swami has commenced  upanyasam on this most sacred ,important and relevant "Prappana Gayathri".Blessed are those who have the opportunity to listen to the upanyasam.The first two sessions were on introduction  dealing with ThiruArangathu Amudanar.We had the bhagyam of listening  to it and a thought struck me.Why the people in and around Triplicane should alone be blessed by listening to this great text.There are thousands and thousands who are eager to listen and know  more and more about Emperumanar.

Two sessions on two days in a week,Krishnan Swami says ,By the blessings of Sriman Narayana ,he would be able to complete in two years time.He further says one of his ambitions is getting fulfilled by giving discourse on this Great Text.

Now on the issue ,I throw it open for consideration.Can some one or group of people can come forward and  make arrangements for listening of the upanyasam by people around the globe.For my part I am prepared to send  the audio tapes every week and it should be the resposiblity for the local coordinator for  making arrangements for others to listen.I can send to States,another one to Spore and another one to Gulf.Krishnan Swami makes it very clear that this is done purely to propogate  Srivaishnavism and not on commercial basis.If the local coordinators desire to charge  towrds  tele link etc they may do so and any excess amount should go for the renovation /maintenance  of Divya Desa temples only.Sending tapes to Spore and Gulf on regular basis  without postage is possi ble and for States  postage cost will be there.If there is any other suggestion pl do let me know.
