Dear BhakthAs :

It is my great pleasure and BhAgyam to let all of You
know that the AchArya RaamAnujA CD ROM kaimkaryam has
been completed now with SadhAchArya kataKsham and the 
blessings of Bhagavath RaamAnujA .

The master disc has been cut after fixing the items
in the Beta test stage.We have to replicate the Master
CD ROM .It is our intention to make 1,000 copies .We are
waiting for Quotations from here and India on the least 
costly proposals to get this reproduction done . 

Sofar , 55 BhakthAs have contributed close to $5,300 to
make progrees on this pioneering project.Each one of them 
will recieve a copy of the Finished CD ROM .

The Ahobila Mutt of North America has agreed most
gracefully to sponsor this project and cover the remaining
developmental expenses .

AdiyEn has seen the Beta test Version of the CD ROM 
and I can say most honestly that it is superbly done .
AdiyEn's admiration for the skills of partners on 
the Indian side is beyond description .They have done
a wonderful execution of the concepts . AdiyEn is
proud to have had the opportunity to work with 
outstanding people on the other side of the ocean
and my special thanks are due to Professor Alwar ,
who served most effectively as a key contributor
and Coordinator of this complex project over many 
months . My sincere thanks to the officials of
Ahobila Matam , NA for coming forward 
with their generous suppot of this kaimkaryam .

Srimath Azhagiyasinghar of Ahobila Matam Peetam has 
reviewed the CD ROM and has blessed us with a special
anugraha BhAshaNam at the front end of the CD ROM 
describing the Charithram, Vaibhavam , granthams 
and Bhagavath AarAdhana Kramam . I will write in
detail about the content of this CD ROM on Bhagavath
RaamAnujA , whose charithram and contributions
are central to every Sri VaishNavA . 

There are three beautiful videos ( Anugraha
BhAshaNam of the revered Jeeyar of AhObila Mutt ,
Thirumanjanam for AchArya RaamAnujA at Melkote
and Selva PiLLai's Vaira Mudi Sevai at Melkote)
along with eye-pleasing  graphics , outstanding
audio recordings of the original Sri Sookthis 
of AchArya RaamAnujA from his nine granthams
and superb music set in rakthi and Ghaan raagAs .
 
It is a thrill to observe the AarAdhanam for BhagavAn
and hear the authentic recitation of the manthrams
by great Sanskrit and Tamil Scholars. 

On a related subject ,Please let me know if anyone of you 
have Macromedia Version 6.0 software . It will 
be very helpful to learn about this information .
Macromedia has been used to create this CD ROM .

I will write a detailed note on the contents of
this AchArya RaamAnujA CD ROM next week.
