I would be interested in knowing this, as well.  At the Seminar on
SriVaishnavam that was held here in Denver last week, Sri Jeear Swamy did
not recite the complete thirumanthram while directly discussing its
importance as a mantra.

Unfortunately, I did not get the opportunity to ask Sri Jeear Swamy what
the official position is as to the recitation or writing of the mantram in
public forums.
