Dear BhakthAs :

I am attaching an announcement regarding special 
celebrations at SRI RANGANATA TEMPLE AT POMONA , NY     

Please plan to attend .

It was August 6, 1988 when the uthsava Moorthys 
arrived from Srirangam with the blessed kara Sparsam 
of HH the 44th Jeeyar of Ahobila Matam ,whose 
construction of the Southern Gopuram of Lord 
RanganAthA is well known . This MahA Purushan's
blessings has now brought us to this stage of
celebration . Please come one and all belonging 
to all SampradhAyams of BhagavAN RaamAnujA and 
receive the anugraham of Sri ranganAyaki SamEtha 
Sri RanganAthan .

Daasan , V.SatakOpan

P.S : The day after the Vigrahams arrived here, 
(Aug 7, 1988)adiyEn wrote a 36 page essay on 
the Sriranga Gadhyam in Tamil to celebrate that 
occasion . That article was completed on August 14, 1988,
which was Aadi Pooram , the avathAra Dinam of 
Our most merciful ANDAL.

Anyone , who wishes to translate this monograph into
English and place it on the net are welcome to 
contact me.I will be happy to send a copy to them.
