Dear BhakthAs :

The time is Brahma MuhUrtham as adiyEn
begins  dhyAnam of the divya Dampathis
of Thirukkudanthai  on this special day . 
AdiyEn will share a few thoughts
about this day and the Vaibhavam of the divya-
dampathis celebrated extensively by Thirukkudanthai
Desikan , Thirumazhisai , NammAzhwAr ,ANDAL , PeriyAzhwAr 
and other AzhwArs .

AdiyEn's salutation will focus on Sri KomaLAmbhA ,
the dear consort of the Lord at Thirukkudanthai.
This saluttion to Sri KomaLAmbhA will be divided into 
the following three parts :

(1) PrAtha: SandhyA Vandhanam 
(2) MaadhyAhnikha SandhyA vandhanam
(3) Saayam SandhyAvandhanam .

May our Mother bless adiyEn with 
Vaak bhalam and vinayam in this effort !  

Our Sri Rengarajan is there offering in person prayers for us 
at KumbakONam after immersing himself in Bhagavadh anubhavam 
prior to his trip to participate in the SamprOkshaNam 
festiviites. BhakthAs from all over the world have
contributed $7,000 for this SamprOkshaNam ; Part of this fund
is being used to create SvarNa Kavacham for Amudhan and 
the rest of the funds for the other kaimkaryams there .
Sri Rengarajan will summarize the activities related to 
the SamprOkshaNam , when he returns home at the end of July .

It has been my bhAgyam to write about Sri AparyAptha DhyAna 
sOpAnam of Thirukkudanthai Desikan in the context of this 
important occasion . AdiyEn requests Sri Murali Rangaswamy to
post for our benefit an article or articles  on Sri KomaLA DhaNDakam , 
another rare and majestic eulogy of Thirukkudanthai Desikan 
on Sri KomaLAmbhA , the divine consort of AarAvamudhan .
She is saluted as Sri Saarnga DhanvAnukUlA in Her Dhyaana
SlOkam . Since She is the enabler and the empowerer of
Sri SaarangapANi (Sriman NaarAyaNan), adiyen will focus on 
Her glories alone on this celebratory note . 

Her dhyAna slOkam is :

Sakala Bhuvana MaathA SaagarAdhIsa jaathA
  PraNamath avna kAmA Bhaskara KshEthra dhAmA I
sakalitha bhaya moolA Saarnga dhanvAnukUlA 
  Pravimala mukha bimbhA Paathu maam KOmaLAmbhA 

Much of adiyEn's three sandhyA vandhanms will be inspired by 
the tributes paid by AlavandhAr (ChathusslOki ), KurEsar
( Sri Sthavam ), ParAsara Bhattar ( Sri GuNa Rathna Kosam ) ,
Swami Desikan (Sri Sthuthi ) and AzhwAr's aruLiccheyalkals.

Sri Saarnga dhanvAnukUla Sri KomaLavalli Naayikyai nama:
Daasan , Oppiliappan Koil VaradAchAri SadagOpan
